Dairy Free Chocolate Cookies ‘N Cream Ice Cream

Yes, I am going to talk about ice cream in January. I can’t help myself. You see my dad and stepmom got me the KitchenAid ice cream attachment for Christmas. This ice cream maker is one of the things I have been looking forward to most about moving to Cincinnati.

You might be asking how those two things are related… Remember those before and after pic from our kitchen renovation? See that little fridge tucked in the corner there? It’s one of the smallest fridges you can get in the US. It’s footprint is 2’x2′. The freezer is made up of three drawers. None of those drawers are big enough to hold the bowl of an ice cream maker.

So I’ve been waiting… As someone who can’t eat most ice cream available on the market, I have been anxiously awaiting the day I had a freezer big enough to hold an ice cream maker bowl. And believe me, I’ve tried soy-based, coconut-based, and tofu-based ice creams. They’re just not the same.

For my first homemade dairy free ice cream, I decided to go with a classic. Chocolate. At the last second, I decided to throw in some Oreos I had in the cabinet. Can you blame me? This ice cream is decadent. And creamy. And oh-so-indulgent. And I can eat it. It’s basically perfect. Hubby and I polished this ice cream off in fewer sittings than I’d like to admit. Even if you can eat dairy, you should make this ice cream.

Chocolate Dairy Free Ice Cream

Yield: 1 quart

Ingredients:

28 fl ounces (2 cans or 800 ml) full-fat coconut milk
1/2 cup (110 grams) sugar
1/2 cup (45 grams) unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
3 egg yolks
1 Tbsp vanilla

6-8 Oreos, cut into large chunks

Directions:

In a large saucepan, warm coconut milk over medium heat. Do not allow to boil.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together the sugar, cocoa powder, and salt. Add about 1 cup warmed coconut milk and whisk until the mixture forms a thick, smooth paste. Whisk in the egg yolks one at time, mixing well between additions. Slowly add cocoa mixture to the warmed coconut milk, whisking quickly to incorporate.

Simmer over medium heat until coconut milk base thickens enough to thickly coat the back of a spoon, about 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in vanilla and transfer to a heat-proof container and refrigerate until cold.

Freeze mixture in ice cream maker, following the manufacturer's instructions. Transfer ice cream to a plastic airtight container and freeze for 2-3 hours before serving.

    Hi Jan. These Orio Crunch Brownies look delicious and I would like to try an make them. Being in Australia the recipe needs some clarification for me. How much butter is in a stick? We get butter in 1kg and 500 gm packs… Thanks so much. Just found your blog today and oh! oh!, everything looks so nice. I would like to leave my email address for you: jong2505@hotmail.com

    Thanks ever so much…

    These look so great! Can I eliminate the instant coffee or is it essential to the taste? I am making these for my 3-year-old niece’s birthday party, and she LOVES chocolate, but I don’t think she should have something with coffee in it. What are your thoughts?

    Sarah – The coffe in the brownies is there to enhance the flavor of the chocolate. It is not necessary, you could definitely take it out without any issues. I hope you enjoy the brownies!

    Sorry to be a pest with questions, but what kind of pan is the size you mentioned? I did a search online and I got two results – a jelly roll pan and also a much deeper roasting pan. The brownies in your photos look thick but I’m not sure if I need to pick up a new pan. Thanks for all of your help!!! 🙂

    Sarah – Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. The pan I used is 11x17x1. So it’s not very deep. I always call it a jelly roll pan. Hope that helps!
