The trouble with most vegan ice creams is texture and flavor. If you use just coconut milk, you end up with something that tastes watery. The coconut cream (not cream of coconut) is coconut milk with twice the fat, which helps in the flavor and texture departments. The corn syrup helps smooth out the texture as well. You end up with a delicious, rich, velvety chocolate ice cream that will have people wondering if it really is vegan or not.

This was quite good. It is creamy but you have to take it out of the freezer at least 15 minutes before you can scoop it. I used brown rice syrup instead of corn syrup. Read More

My wife didn't even want any after tasting it. I didn't even think it was hardly sweet so I added another 1/2 cup of sugar... and then a bunch of stevia, and it still did not seem very sweet. Read More
