Rich ‘n creamy coconut milk ice cream packed with coconut throughout. This coconut ice cream is the BEST coconut milk keto ice cream!
Welcome to the first keto ice cream of the summer! Scratch that, I actually just remembered that I shared this Chocolate Keto Ice Cream just a bit ago. But this is the first keto coconut ice cream of the summer. 😉
How’s that for summer brain? Also, it’s not technically summer until June 20, according to my controlling calendar, but whatever. 😉 It’s summer when the coconut milk ice cream recipes start rolling out. And that’s final!
Okay, I admit that I’m a bit energetic right now because I’m that friggin excited about sharing another keto ice cream recipe with you (any fans of Strawberry Keto Ice Cream here?).
For years now, y’all have been emailing me, DM’ing me, and skywriting to me that you need All the Keto Ice Cream Recipes. Okay, fine… no one skywrote anything to me. But one can hope, can’t one? 😉
So today, we’re gonna do keto ice cream up real nice by making Coconut Milk Keto Ice Cream! Today’s recipe is my favorite keto coconut ice cream. It’s creamy, rich, smooth, silky and oh-so-satisfying. Plus, it totally counts as a low carb ice cream. Plus plus, it’s made with just a few ingredients! And if you needed an extra keto treat, try my 2 ingredient keto fudge.
what is coconut milk ice cream?
Let’s start with the basics. What is ice cream? Ice cream is a frozen dessert that’s made, typically, with dairy. Coconut milk ice cream is ice cream that’s made with a coconut milk base.
For that reason, we will be skipping the dairy products and heading straight to coconut milk to keep today’s recipe keto and delicious. In today’s coconut ice cream, we will be making rich ‘n creamy ice cream with no sugar sweeteners and full fat coconut milk.
how to make keto coconut ice cream
The day before, make sure to freeze the freezer bowl that comes with your ice cream maker. Here’s the ice cream maker that I use. Make sure it’s frozen completely solid before prepping the keto coconut ice cream mixture.
Add coconut milk, coconut cream, vanilla, coconut extract and keto honey into a food processor and blend until smooth. Add liquid monkfruit to taste. Optionally, blend in coconut chips—I highly recommend this for adding delicious coconut texture.
Pour your keto coconut milk ice cream mixture into the freezer bowl of your ice cream maker. Churn until firm.
Enjoy the best coconut milk ice cream! Or, if you like your keto ice cream on the firmer side, pour into an ice cream container and chill until as firm as desired.
6 ingredients for the best keto coconut ice cream
Ingredient #1: Full-fat Coconut Milk
It’s important to use full-fat coconut milk to make coconut milk ice cream. Some might confuse drinking coconut milk for full-fat coconut milk–but it’s not. 😉 How can you tell? Drinking coconut milk typically comes in a carton, just like with regular milk. Full-fat coconut milk is in a can.
Ingredient #2: Coconut Cream
Some might think that coconut cream is totally not necessary for their coconut milk ice cream. I beg to differ. That’s right, I’m getting sassy here, folks! 😉 Coconut cream goes the extra mile in pumping up the RICH and CREAMY factor in your coconut ice cream. I mean, if you were looking for light coconut ice cream, you’d be going somewhere else, wouldn’t ya? 😉
Ingredient #3: Pure Vanilla Extract
Ingredient #4: Coconut Extract
One of my favorite ingredients in keto coconut ice cream–the coconut extract! This amazing coconut extract adds a deep and soulful coconut flavor. (If you love, love, love coconut as my mom does, you KNOW what I mean.) You can absolutely skip this, but I highly recommend it to take your coconut milk ice cream to the next level.
is coconut milk keto?
Sweetened Versus Unsweetened Coconut Milk: Which Is Keto?
Yes, unsweetened canned coconut milk is keto. Just make sure you do not use sweetened coconut milk. Today, we are using coconut milk that’s canned, not the drinking milk (the kind that comes in a container like regular milk).
How does coconut milk fit into a keto diet?
Canned coconut milk is keto because it’s high in fat, very low in carbs and super low in sugar. The keto diet is high fat, moderate protein and low in carbs. So you’re all good to use unsweetened coconut milk on a keto diet.
Coconut Milk Nutrition Facts
For one serving, coconut milk usually has about 12g of fat, 2g of carbs and 1g sugar. This is the coconut milk that I use.
coconut cream or coconut milk keto ice cream?
Both! Today’s ice cream is made with both coconut cream and coconut milk. So… is it a coconut milk keto ice cream? Check! Is it a coconut cream keto ice cream? Double check! Is it a coconut milk ice cream? (Okay, now I’m dizzy and confused, but… yeeees, it is!) Um, triple check!
is ice cream keto?
Yes and no. Here’s the deal: most ice cream recipes are not keto; most ice cream recipes are high in sugar and high in carbs—a big no-no on the keto diet. But this ice cream is keto. This keto coconut ice cream is low carb and keto-friendly. Meaning: high in fat, low carb, and moderate to little protein. Woohoo!

Today’s Coconut Milk Ice Cream: Nutrition Facts

Dreamy, rich ‘n creamy coconut milk ice cream that’s keto, so easy to make & even easier to eat! Just 1 net carb per serving.
Tools for the Best Coconut Milk Ice Cream
You’ll need both coconut milk and coconut cream to make today’s keto coconut ice cream. Both lend a creamy, rich and delicious texture to your keto ice cream.
A staple in my keto pantry. Deliciously thick and viscous just like real honey. It has a warm, rich, sweet flavor that’s pleasing, and a thickness that comes in handy for tricky recipes that really don’t need any liquidy sweetener.
The mini-boost that takes this coconut milk keto ice cream to the TOP. This coconut extract adds that soothing, satisfying coconut flavor you grew up with. So tasty and delish.
I seriously love this ice cream maker. It’s minimalist, cute and easy to use. It’s very highly rated (and not just by yours truly). Best of all? It’s affordable. Yeah! Psst: make sure to get extra freezer bowls and freeze them in advance so you can make multiple batches of keto ice cream, one after another. 😉
Yep, the name speaks for itself. I love this affordable and easy-to-use kitchen tool that works for everything. I use it to make homemade nut butters, all of my ice cream recipes and more. The uses are endless + it’s durable enough to last throughout it all.
How’d you like making ice cream? Ooooh, are you gonna add 2x the amount of raw coconut chips because you like it chunky? 😉 However you like it, I just hope you truly do. Thanks so much for stopping by and making ice cream with me. I can’t wait to hear what you and your loved ones think! ‘Til the next one…
Sending you all my love and maybe even a dove, xo Demeter ❤️
