Double Chocolate Raspberry Ice Cream (Dairy-Free)

This is a wonderfully rich dairy-free ice cream option. I love the balance of flavors in this recipe – it combines a slight sweetness from the modest amount of honey, the delightful tang of raspberries, the depth of cocoa, and the creaminess of coconut to create a wonderful summer dessert that is surprisingly low in sugar and packed with nutrition.

1 (13.5oz) can coconut milk
3T cocoa powder
1/4 cup honey
1 cup frozen raspberries
1 high-quality dark chocolate bar, chopped into chunks

Combine all of the ingredients except the chocolate chunks in your food processor and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into your ice cream mixture and freeze according to the manufacturer’s directions. Add the chocolate chunks during the last five minutes of the cycle, then place your ice cream in the freezer to harden for a few hours. Then try not to eat the whole batch of chocolatey goodness in one sitting . . . or if you do finish it all in one sitting, at least share it with someone you love or like a lot!

  1. I love coconut ice cream, or vanilla coconut ice cream, but I’ve never tried chocolate. We’re eliminating dairy at our house and the timing on this is perfect! I’ll be trying this this weekend…

      Good luck with your transition to dairy-free! We use occasional cultured dairy at our house, but no milk, and I found that the transition for us was pretty smooth and easy to make. Plus, I get to experiment with tasty coconut milk treats! I have a couple more dairy-free ice cream recipes coming up this week, so I hope that you will stop back!
