After learning how to make vanilla coconut milk ice cream, I knew the next logical step would be to make a chocolate version!

Just like the vanilla ice cream, this chocolate flavored one is very simple. I used cocoa powder to add the chocolate flavor. You can use regular cocoa powder or Dutch-processed cocoa powder. Or you can use cacao powder. They all work!

We’ll make this chocolate ice cream with coconut milk. I always recommend using an organic canned coconut milk for making vegan ice cream – it will have more tasty coconut cream and less filler.

When I started making my own homemade ice cream, I used a blender. But, after buying a food processor, I find that the wider opening in the container and larger blade makes it a lot easier and quicker to make ice cream.

  • 1 13 oz can coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder (can sub cacao powder)
  • 1/2 cup plant milk (I usually use oat or soy milk)


  • Whisk the coconut milk, sugar, cocoa powder and vanilla extract together completely, then pour into silicone muffin molds.
  • Place the mold in the freezer and freeze for at least 3 hours.
  • Remove the silicone mold from the freezer and add all the frozen ice cream pieces to a blender or food processor. Add in the plant milk.
  • Blend until you have smooth ice cream, using a tamper or scraper to push the frozen chunks into the blade. It will be like soft-serve ice cream if you serve it now.
  • For scoopable ice cream, put the ice cream into a freezer-safe container and freeze for another 2-3 hours.


  • The vanilla extract is important in this recipe – it helps prevent the ice cream from forming into a solid block of ice.
