Dairy-free! I came up with this recipe after trying a specialty ice cream in an attempt to cut refined sugars from my diet. The result is amazingly rich and creamy, and not too sweet.

The taste is overall good. However, what I would suggest is that after taking the coconut milk cans out of the fridge after being chilled overnight, I would use just the solid creamy part of the milk and disgard the liquid it got separated from. It would just make the ice cream more creamier, but that's just my opinion. Also, I just used semi sweet chocolate chips instead of the dark chocolate bar and it still turns out good. One change can be made, but it's still a good and simple recipe on it's own =D Read More

I made this recipe exactly as is and it was great. My son has milk allergies and I have tried many other recipes for non-dairy ice cream but this was by far the best tasting and easiest to make! The whole family loved it! I will definitely be making it again. Read More

I did as another reviewer suggested and refrigerated the coconut milk and used only the cream on top. Then I used some evaporated coconut milk to get the amount up to 24 oz. I used powdered sugar no agave and chocolate powder. Then when serving added coconut on top was very good and creamy I did t have a ice cream maker so I froze it blended it and the served. Read More
