Chocolate Almond Chip Coconut Milk Ice Cream

The variety of non-dairy ice cream treats continues to grow at my local grocery store. Have you tried So Delicious Coconut Milk Ice Cream? I just love how it tastes and the creamy texture, however, I don't like the price. Even with the occasional coupon, the price still runs around $5 a pint. Ouch! Since I have an ice cream maker, whipping up a batch of my own coconut milk ice cream isn't all that difficult, and it's much cheaper!

I found this recipe over at Whole. New. Mom. but decided to cut back on the amounts and used more common ingredients. Here's how I made it.

Chocolate Almond Chip Coconut Milk Ice Cream
Source: Whole. New. Mom.

2 14-oz. cans full-fat coconut milk
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/8 tsp. salt
1/3 cup MSPI-friendly chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life Mini Chips.)
1/3 cup chopped almonds

Add coconut milk, sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch, vanilla and salt to a blender or food processor. Mix well. Add mixture to ice cream maker and process following manufacturer’s instructions. When mixture starts to thicken, add almonds and chocolate chips and finish freezing.

Tip: Add 1/2 cup mini marshmallows with the chips and the almonds and you have rocky road ice cream!
