Vegan coconut ice cream recipe

Serves 6-9


  • 2 (15-ounce) cans full-fat coconut milk, divided
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Dried, unsweetened shredded coconut, toasted (optional)


  1. In a heavy saucepan, combine all but 1/4 cup of the coconut milk, sugar and salt. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. In a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and the remaining 1/4 cup coconut milk until smooth. Add to the saucepan and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and can coat the back of a wooden spoon.
  2. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Cover and chill at least 4 hours, or up to 24 hours.
  3. Pour the chilled mixture into the bowl of an ice cream maker and run according to manufacturer's directions.
  4. Serve topped with toasted coconut, if desired.
