  • 28 Oz canned full fat coconut milk
  • 6-8 Oz Coconut milk sweetened condensed milk
  • pinch Sea salt
  • 1 tbsp Vanillla extract
  • vanilla bean Optional


  • Before we get started on the ice cream base. You will want to see your mixing bowl into the freezer or 15-30 minutes. This will help with whipping the canned coconut milk faster.
  • In a large bowl, using stand mixer or hand mixer whip the coconut milk until it forms small peaks. (Don’t over whip!) The whipped coconut milk will be done when you pull the beaters out and stands on its own.
  • In another medium size bowl, whisk together the vanilla, salt, vanilla bean (optional) and coconut sweetened condensed milk.
  • Then gently pour sweetened condensed milk into whipped coconut milk. Fold with a spatula, slowly incorporating the two together. So they are light and aerated.
  • In an ice cream container or freezable container add an even layer of whipped coconut milk. (If you desired, you can add some chocolate, fruits or anything you like in your ice cream before placing in the freezer.)
  • Freeze for 4-6 hours. Serve in a bowl or cone with your favorite toppings!

This recipe makes a little over 1 quart of ice cream.
Let ice cream sit for a few minutes at room temperature before serving. We find it much easier to scoop it out when we do this!
Chill mixing bowl before starting recipe. Place in freezer for 15-30 minutes. This will help full fat coconut milk whip faster and more effectively.
What type of containers can I use to store ice cream
You can store you ice cream in an metal/steel loaf pan, insulated tub, paper containers, freezer gallon bags, and freezer safe plastic containers. 
Do not use a glass container to store ice cream. Glass can potentially explode in the freezer when wet ingredients begin to expand
