  • Heat 1/4 cup of coconut milk and chocolate chips in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook for 10-15 minutes while whisking occasionally, until the chocolate is completely melted.
  • Add the melted mixture with the rest of the ingredients in a high powered blender, and blend until smooth.

Ice Cream Maker Method

  • Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and churn following the manufacturer's directions. The mixture should firm up and turn into a ball after about 20 minutes.
  • Transfer to an airtight container and freeze for at least 2 hours before enjoying.

No Churn Method

  • Transfer to a freezer-safe container, then freeze for 4-6 hours until firm.
  • Optional step: For a creamier ice cream, use a metal spoon to stir the ice cream every 30 minutes for the first 2 hours of freezing.
  • When ready to serve, allow the ice cream to thaw at room temperature for 15-20 minutes before serving.
