Coconut Milk Ice Cream Ingredients:
2 cans of full-fat organic coconut milk
4 tbsps of raw cacao powder
5-15 drops of chocolate stevia
1 tsp of vanilla extract
Pinch of pink salt
Add in 1-2 scoops of Chocolate Bone Broth Protein
Coconut Milk Ice Cream Instructions:
- Place a sheet of parchment paper on deep baking dish. Pour the coconut milk onto the parchment paper and then freeze for several hours, until hard.
- Once frozen, pull the coconut milk off the parchment paper and break into chunks.
- Add coconut and other ingredients to blender.
- Process until smooth, scooping down the sides as necessary.
- Process until you have achieved your desired ice cream texture.
- Serve immediately- keep in freezer.
Notes For This Recipe:
You can customize this to your desires. It is really good with dark chocolate chips, nuts or berries. You can range your stevia to your desired taste. If you like it real sweet than go for 15 drops and if you like it less sweet, than try 5 drops. If you don’t want to do stevia, you can try monk fruit or a bit of raw honey or maple syrup.
You will need a strong blender, food processer or Vita mix for this. Be sure to use the parchment paper. If you don’t, the frozen cream will stick to the glass and you will lose a lot of the substance for the ice cream.

If you are looking for an easy to make, low-carb, superfood based chocolate ice cream recipe than this is for you!
It is quite simple with only 5-6 ingredients and is full of good medium chain triglycerides (MCT’s) from the coconut milk. The MCT’s stimulate ketone production and help the body to burn fat. They are a great fuel for the brain and when combined with raw cacao it is an incredible combo for boosting up dopamine to help you feel good and drive toward your goals.
I love adding in chocolate bone broth protein powder to make this a complete meal and provide key collagen protein to support healthy skin, hair, nails, joints and gut health. I don’t recommend consuming this at night, it is more of an early afternoon snack as the cacao can be stimulating and interfere with sleep. You and your family are going to LOVE this recipe!
