Prior to freezing. we didn’t take pictures after. i like mine as mylk chocolate or dark chocolate but i know some people dont like dark chocolate so i leave the amounts a little flexible with cocoa

this dairy free icecream recipe is both a vegan and paleo dessert and it stays smooth and easy to scoop after freezing without an ice cream machine/churner! The secret is 1 tbsp of booze as alcohol doesnt freeze easily 😉 or you can make it alcohol free, but only freeze a short time, say before dinner to have as dessert.


2 cans of coconut cream, full fat, chilled solid top cream part only, or double the recipe with 4 cans using just the cream part, liquid can be used but it crystallizes more

7.5-10 tbsp of Cacao pdr/cocoa pdr (to taste depending if you like light or dark chocolate,the more you add the more sugar you will neeed)

6tbsp or more to taste of coconut sugar/ maple syrup (keto sub preferred sweetener ex pinch stevia)

grated dark chocolate,garnish

Optional: 1 tbsp dark rum or vodka to prevent freezing hard( hard alcohol has a low freezing point)(if not adding the condensed coconut milk as below, nor multiplying the recipe, you can even get away with 2/3 tbsp vodka, use about a 1.5 tbsp of 80-proof alcohol per quart(approx 4 cups) of ice cream/sorbet.

For chocolate brigadeiro variation: add a 250 ml can of sweetened condensed coconut milk (not evaporated milk), you can omit or reduce the sugar, and add an extra 4tsp-2tbsp cocoa pdr to taste

vanilla Coconut variation: omit cacao and use little less sweetener, add vanilla.

vanilla coconut brigadeiro ice cream: omit the cocoa powder and add vanilla and condensed coocnut milk, omitting or reducing the sugar

grated chocolate for topping chocolate ice cream

Recipe directions:

Blend all in a blender or on low heat in a saucepan til sugar and cocoa is dissolved. Freezing reduces sweetness so make it a little sweeter than you like it, to taste. Freeze in silicone mold or brownie pan or freezer safe Tupperware for one-two hours and let sit out a few mins before scooping- Or if using rum freeze in a loaf pan for about six hours or til firm, but not hard. The alcohol helps it from crystallizing hard so if omitting alchol only freeze 1-2hours.
