Yes, this ice cream is dairy- free, but it's also a creamy, not- too-sweet delight for anyone who loves coconut.


  • 2 14 - ounce cans unsweetened coconut milk, well-shaken, divided
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup light-color corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut (also labeled as dessicated coconut)
  • 1/3 cup dairy-free bittersweet chocolate (70% cacao), finely chopped


  1. In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup coconut milk and the cornstarch; whisk until no lumps remain. Set aside.
  2. Place remaining coconut milk, the corn syrup and salt in a large saucepan. Whisk to combine. Bring mixture to a low boil over medium-high heat. Whisk in cornstarch mixture; continue whisking until mixture thickens to the consistency of a thin pudding, about 1 minute. Remove pan from heat. Whisk in vanilla. Pour mixture into a heatproof bowl or baking dish. Refrigerate, covered, until well-chilled, at least 4 hours.
  3. Remove from refrigerator; whisk to smooth out any lumps, then transfer mixture to an ice cream maker. Freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.
  4. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees . Spread coconut in an even layer on a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Bake until golden, about 3 minutes, stirring often. Transfer to a plate to cool.
  5. tir cooled, toasted coconut and chocolate bits into churned ice cream. Transfer mixture to a 6-cup container, cover tightly, and freeze until firm. Store up to 3 months. Let soften at room temperature about 15 minutes before serving.
