Dairy free chocolate ice cream

I made chocolate ice cream for pud tonight and I think it was my best yet. Everyone enjoyed it and my son polished it off which is a real mark of success as he is the hardest to please. My husband and daughter can eat any kind of ice cream but they both loved this one! 

I have an ice cream attachment for my KitchenAid mixer, it’s a little temperamental but when it’s behaving I get great results. 


1 tin chilled coconut milk (I used Sainsburys own, I like the consistency and I’ve used it effectively in several recipes. My daughter prefers it to Tesco’s version which she says tastes much more coconutty)

2 small ripe bananas (ideally chopped and frozen)

1/4 cup cocoa

1/4 cup icing sugar

1/4 cup maple syrup

Handful dairy free chocolate chips & mini marshmallows 


Blend the banana and chilled coconut milk (I used my food processor) until smooth

Add the cocoa, icing sugar and Maple syrup and blend until well combined. 

Add mix to ice cream maker and churn as per instructions, I spooned the mix in as my ice cream maker tends to jam if I pour it in and I make less mess that way. 

I added a small handful of mini marshmallows and dairy free chocolate chips after about 15 minutes which was lovely but freaked out my ice cream maker. My husband sorted it but any tips on adding extras to your home made ice cream would be gratefully received!!

We ate it with the mini egg free meringues I made yesterday. But of a sugar rush but it is Father’s Day so nice to have a treat!
