Chocolate Almond Chip Coconut Milk Ice Cream. Dairy and Sugar-Free - and YUMMY! No need to pay $7 per pint anymore for low carb dairy-free ice cream - 'cause you can make it yourself!

Here is another dairy-free ice cream recipe that will surely satisfy your sweet tooth!

I mentioned in my post on Mint Chocolate Chip Coconut Milk Ice Cream that I never could make up my mind about which flavor to get whenever we went out for ice cream.

Well, after writing about our trips to Friendly’s and the Sampler of four small scoops that I would always get, I remembered that my other favorite flavor had always been Chocolate Almond Chip.

I even checked out Friendly’s website and though I couldn’t figure out what other flavors I used to get, Chocolate Almond Chip is still there.

There’s a reason :-).

Now, I’ve never been one to turn down ice cream in any form (someday I’ll share the gorey details of my summers working in an ice cream parlor), but ice cream full of chunks has always been a favorite of mine.

If you feel the same way, then do I have a treat for you.

Chocolate Almond Chip Ice Cream, full (really full) of almonds and chocolate (or carob) chunks.

(And absent of dairy and sugar, for those on special diets :-)!)

This whole dairy-free ice cream adventure started on our recent trip to Chicago.  My family always likes to visit Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s whenever we visit to grab some food to get us through our trip (since we never go out) and to stock up on a few things.

Well, this time we got the chance to sample some coconut milk, no sugar-added ice cream.  And we were hooked.

And wouldn’t you know it – it was on sale.

Good thing –the regular price was something horrendous — even on sale it was $3.59 / pint.

Well, though I am not one to spend $3.59 a pint on anything, I splurged on Mint Chip as well as Chocolate flavors and some gluten-free cones.  Guess what our breakfast was the next day :-)!

The consensus in our family was that the chocolate was too bitter.

Well, not this version.  It was gone-gone-gone in our household in a flash!

Dairy Free Ice Cream

Enjoy!

Let me know how long it lasts (or doesn’t) in your house!

  1. Looks like a great recipe and I can’t wait to try it :-)

  2. Janine G. says:

    Quick questions: Your instructions say 1/2 c. to 3/4 c. sweetener. I understand you can leave it out but what would you recommend as the sweetener? Thanks in advance for your answer!

    • Do you mean can I leave the sweetener out completely? I wouldn’t do that. I think it depends on your diet. I use stevia or xylitol or erythritol b/c of our issues w/ candida. Let me know if you need more help :).

  3. Thanks for linking at Trim Healthy Tuesday! We love coconut milk.

  4. I love chocolate and coconut! I just had a version at Graders that had shaved coconut in it. It was a little too textured for my taste. The almonds sound like a great alternative. Thanks for the great recipe! :)

  5. You actually found Coconut milk ice cream with no sugar in it at Whole Foods? What was the brand?

  6. great recipe! Thanks :-) I haven’t read all the comments but I would put half an avocado in this for creaminess. It really works and you can’t taste the avocado at all!!

  7. My stomach won’t tolerate zylitol, so I use Erythritol and Stevia. I bought this Cuisinart maker and using Erythritol, the ice cream froze solid to the sides of the bowl of this ice cream maker. It can’t even be chiseled away. The rest of it freezes hard as a rock once it’s been in the freezer. I’ve tried three recipes, and it does it ever time. Has anyone else have this trouble? Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    • Yikes. I have no idea! I have seen others make recipes that are dairy free and made with erythritol so I am not sure. Did you try one of the thickeners like the gelatin? I have seen others use vodka.
