You only need five ingredients to make this creamy and dreamy ice cream: coconut milk, sugar, vanilla extract, coconut, and chocolate! If you need the ice cream to be vegan and dairy free, make sure you use vegan chocolate. I love Enjoy Life chocolate chips or chocolate chunks.

Last summer was the first time I used coconut milk to make Coconut Raspberry Ice Cream. The coconut milk is magic and creates a fabulous ice cream. I am a big fan! This summer I decided to mix things up and make Coconut Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream because I LOVE coconut and chocolate together! You can never go wrong with this combo!

  • 2 (13.66 oz) cans chilled full fat Thai coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped chocolate or chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut


  • Place the coconut milk, sugar, and vanilla in a blender. Blend until combined, about 30 seconds.
  • Freeze using an ice cream maker, according to manufacture’s instructions. During the last few minutes of churning, add in the chopped chocolate and coconut. You can serve immediately for a soft serve texture or you can place the ice cream in a container and freeze for a firmer texture.


I place the cans of coconut milk in the fridge the night before or a few hours before I make the ice cream. If you don’t have chilled coconut milk, you can always place the ice cream mixture in the fridge for 30 minutes before churning up the ice cream. The mixture needs to be cold before churning. I like Thai coconut milk brand, you can find it in the Asian aisle at most grocery stores. Make sure you use vegan chocolate if you need the ice cream to be vegan. I like Enjoy Life Brand.

  1. I love that you used coconut milk, that it’s vegan, and no-churn, and I love your Ovenex baking pan you put it in – love that pattern ๐Ÿ™‚ pinned

  2. This ice cream looks delicious. It looks ultra creamy considering it’s vegan and the fact that it’s no churn is a bonus too!

  3. Totally obsessed with this ice cream. Whenever I make ice cream with coconut milk, I always find it’s extra creamy. But, I always have to churn mine so this is a mega win! Pinned!

  4. That ice-cream looks amazing! I have to admit I’m not a fan of coconut but I’m going to have to look past that. Is that a guy thing? Most guys I know don’t care for coconut either.

  5. Yay for ice cream today ๐Ÿ™‚ Loving the idea of using coconut milk! Gotta try that ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy Monday! xo

  6. I really need to get an ice cream maker….just for this ice cream! I love that it’s vegan and dairy free!!

  7. I puffy heart love coconut ice cream! And I love all those chocolate chunks in this. Perfect for eating a bowl every night this month!!!

  8. Mmm, this vegan chocolate chunk ice cream is right up my alley. Can’t wait to give it a try this summer!

  9. This is perfect for me since I’m lactose-intolerant! Coconut chocolate is one of the best flavor combos!

  10. another awesome recipe! love that it’s vegan especially – its so hard to find a good dairy free ice-cream recipe. thanks for sharing, definitely a recipe i will be saving to recreate!

  11. Coconut milk and chocolate chips in my ice cream. Now that KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment has been bumped to the top of my “must have yesterday” list. My husband is gonna kill me. This seriously sounds amazing!

  12. I love ice cream made with the coconut milk and the addition of chocolate makes this one just perfect!

  13. I LOVE coconut milk ice cream! It is the best. And adding dark chocolate chunks sounds fab. I could totally go for some right now, even if its only 7 in the morning, haha!

  14. We are on the same wavelength my friend! Homemade ice cream is the best. LOVE coconut ice cream bases. Happy Summer!

  15. Also great for people who can’t eat dairy just like my youngest my daughter, great flavor profile!

  16. Looks tasty! We can’t get coconut milk in town, but somehow my family has some coconut cream, do you think that would work instead of coconut milk? ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Love coconut milk ice cream! I make so many variations, but my favorite is Vanilla Cheesecake, SO good!

  18. Thank you for the great recipe! I didn’t have canned coconut milk so I used 1 c Greek yogurt, 1 c whole milk and 2 c silk coconut almond milk from the fridge section. So yum!

  19. OMG, way to make my mouth water and buy all the ingredients ANS repin this on Pinterest in one day! I don’t have an ice cream maker so it turned into a sweet coconutty creamy Chocolatey ice block. Whoops! Could you make an alternate version for us kitchen-tech-deficient vegan folk out here pretty please?

  20. great post! I tried making a vegan coconut ice cream but it always turns out a little icy :(:(:( I don’t know what I’m doing wrong…

    I used:
    2 cans chilled thai kitchen coconut milk full fat
    6 tablespoons agave syrup
    vanilla beans
    2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

    I churned it for about 30-35min in the Cuisinart ICE-100 machine and froze it overnight.


  21. Just wondering, does it get rock hard if left in the freezer for a few days? Do you have any tips for keeping it creamy. I can’t wait to try this!

  22. Very interesting! It’s pretty good and quite easy to make! It will still require some getting used to, it doesn’t seem to have the same refreshing taste as regular ice cream.

  23. What does “no churn” mean? I guess I am confused. The recipe says “freeze using an cream maker…..during the last few minutes of churning…”


    1. This ice cream needs to be churned. You need an ice cream maker to make this recipe.

  24. So is the recipe said it yields 1 quart. My ice cream maker makes 4 quarts ( I’ve never used it, so excuse my dumb question). Does your ice cream make only make a quart at a time? Or is the base a quart that you’re adding to the ice in the maker?

  25. I made this tonight with my new ice cream maker, and it was fabulous!! Thank you! I added a big dash of cinnamon and substituted the sugar for truvia ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for the recipe!!!

  26. Is there any way I could make this without an ice cream maker? I understand results won’t be as creamy.

  27. It’s really good but when I took it out of the freezer to have some, it was so hard I couldn’t scoop it out of the container. Because of that I’ll never make it again
