Ingredients

  • two 400 ml (14oz) tins full fat coconut milk
  • 200 g (1 cup) granulated sugar (or coconut sugar)
  • 250 ml (1 cup) water
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste/extract
  • 30 g (1/4 cup) cocoa powder
  • pinch salt
  • 150 g (5.3 oz) dark chocolate (50-70% cocoa solids) chopped
  • 2-4 Tbsp coconut rum (optional) to taste

Instructions

  1. Whisk together the coconut milk, sugar, water, vanilla, cocoa powder and salt in a saucepan.

  2. Place over a medium heat and stir regularly until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is almost boiling.

  3. Remove from the heat and add the chopped chocolate, stir until smooth.

  4. Pour into a large jug, cover and refrigerate until completely cold; preferably overnight.

  5. Once the mixture is chilled, add the rum (if using) and whisk well until smooth (the coconut milk may separate a bit as it chills).

  6. Churn in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturers instructions. Transfer to a freezer-proof container, cover and freeze for a couple of hours before serving.
