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 (ΒΌ 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

  • Whisk together the coconut milk, sugar, water, vanilla, cocoa powder and salt in a saucepan.
  • Place over a medium heat and stir regularly until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is almost boiling.
  • Remove from the heat and add the chopped chocolate, stir until smooth.
  • Pour into a large jug, cover and refrigerate until completely cold; preferably overnight.
  • 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).
  • 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.
