A creamy 2 ingredient chocolate ice cream for the chocolate lover! Dairy-free and no ice cream maker required!
I actually really love vegan chocolate ice cream. I also think I am lactose intolerant (so I would always look for dairy-free food) and have been for quite a while, so eating any vegan foods really helps.
A little background about myself, I’ve been a vegetarian for 11 years now, by choice too. My husband has been vegetarian all his life and is now leaning on a vegan diet, so he really enjoys any vegan desserts I make. I was actually working on a recipe for chocolate truffles and instead, I messed up and accidentally came up with this recipe! (I’m so glad I messed up, lol). My family loved this ice cream and didn’t believe me it was vegan.
Tips and Tricks for Making This Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe:
- You can also run the mixture through a sifter to make sure that chocolate lumps won’t be included.
- Watch over the coconut milk carefully when boiling it. Boiling it too much turns it into coconut oil which you won’t be needing in your ice cream recipe.
- If you have options for chocolate chips that are quick-melt, go ahead and buy those. You will have an easier task in melting those chocolate lumps.
How to Make this Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream:
In a saucepan, add the coconut milk and bring to a light boil. This step is critical as you do not want your coconut milk to boil too much as it would turn into coconut oil:
While waiting for the coconut milk to boil lightly, place your vegan chocolate chips in a large mixing bowl and pour in the coconut milk has been boiled lightly:
Mix for about three to four minutes, stirring constantly to get rid of chocolate lumps. It is important to get that smooth and shiny chocolate liquid to achieve a smooth ice cream texture.
After diligently stirring the mixture, it should look like this: dark-colored chocolate that is shiny and smooth:
Now it’s ready to be frozen! Freeze it 3-4 hours but for best results, freeze it overnight:
I was so excited to scoop it out because it looked very creamy and smooth. So when I took my first bite, I was right! 🙂 You guys gotta give it and let me know how you liked it.
Adding a sprinkle of dried shredded coconuts makes this Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream over the top!

hi, what is the best brand of coconut milk can u used?
Instead of using chocolate chip, I wonder if cacao powder might be okay ? or should I use chocolate bar instead? thanks a lot
I always use trader joes brand since there’s no added ingredients. It’s better to use chocolate bar instead of cocoa powder because it is a completely different ingredient. I hope this helps. Thank you and please keep on visiting my blog for more delicious and healthy recipes. 🙂
