Ingredients

Instructions

  • Make sure your ice cream maker is full frozen and ready to use before proceeding.
  • Pour one full can of coconut milk into a small saucepan and heat over medium heat until just simmering.
  • While the milk is heating, place the chopped chocolate into a large bowl. Scoop the cream out of the second can of coconut milk and set aside.
  • Once the milk is hot, pour it over the chopped chocolate into the bowl. Let this rest for 30 seconds, then whisk until fully combined.
  • Add the separated coconut cream to the bowl and whisk again. The residual heat should melt any lumps of cream.
  • Add the date syrup and whisk again until fully combined. If you are adding any extras, like vanilla, this is the time to do so.
  • Cool the ice cream base to room temperature before refrigerating to chill fully, at least four hours.
  • Pour the chilled mixture into your prepared ice cream maker. Churn according to the machine instructions, until creamy and frozen.*
  • Place the churned ice cream into an airtight container and freeze. Remove it from the freezer and let it sit out for ten minutes at room temperature before serving.
  • For ice cream sandwiches, simply sandwich a scoop of ice cream between two of the oatmeal cookies and freeze again before serving.

Notes

*See above for instructions on how to make this without an ice cream maker.
