Dark Chocolate Coconut Ice Cream

Dark Chocolate Coconut Ice Cream
This is the type of ice cream that you put in your mouth and say whoa. And guess what - it uses just 3 simple ingredients! It has a texture that is creamier than most homemade ice creams due to the use of coconut milk instead of regular milk. I added sugar and unsweetened cocoa powder to give the coconut milk a rich chocolaty flavor. Topped off with dark chocolate shavings this makes the ultimate chocolate sundae even more intense!

2 cans coconut milk
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

Make sure the bowl of an ice cream maker has been in the freezer for at least four hours before making the ice cream mixture. Place cans of milk  and a medium bowl in the refrigerator for an hour before use. After chilling, take out the milk and bowl and combine all ingredients in the bowl. Use a whisk to make sure the mixture is smooth. Place the mixture in the bowl of an ice cream maker, turn on and allow to spin for fifteen to twenty minutes until mixture is the texture of soft-serve ice cream. Top with chocolate shavings, shaved coconut, whipped cream or whatever your favorite sundae topping is and enjoy!
