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.

    I think we both know that I’m not a baker…yet I still think I need a kitchen torch! Can I help that I’m addicted to kitchen gadgets?

    I recently made some s’mores cupcakes using a piece of graham cracker as a crust, but I thought it tasted salty. Of course, I used a mix, which probably did have added salt. I am going to try this method. I’d also love to try the torch! woo hoo!

    I made and blogged about these and they’re so delicious. Thanks for the inspiration. I did increase the amounts of everything but the cake batter since I had so much left over.
