Creamy Chocolate Vegan Ice Cream

Creamy vegan chocolate ice cream.
Do you love indulging in ice cream but always feel guilty afterwards?
I never do when I make this ice cream. It satisfies every desire for that rich creamy chocolate experience.
I’ve eaten it for breakfast or just as a snack. Give it a go and guarantee your kids will love it also.
Best part about it, it’s so easy to make.
Ice cream maker ( I use a cheap one I got for $30 ) 
Container to store the ice cream in
High speed blender ( I use vitamix )
1/2 small frozen avocado- does not need to be frozen.
1 can of  BPA free organic coconut cream 
pinch of good quality salt (never use table salt)
small capful of vanilla
1 heaped tbs of raw cacao powder ( add more if you prefer a stronger taste )
2 tbs of raw honey (this can be replaced with coconut nectar or maple syrup if you prefer and will make it vegan)


You will need to plan ahead when making this by freezing your ice cream bowl overnight. Unless you have a fancy ice cream machine that does not require this step. Also pop your peeled 1/2 avocado in the freezer to freeze.
Pop all your ingredients into a high speed blender and mix till creamy and all incorporated. 
Have a taste and adjust the sweetness to your liking. Try not to eat it all now because it is delicious just like this!
Liquid chocolate mix
Then simply pour your liquid chocolate mix into the ice cream maker as per your ice cream maker instructions and turn on. Mine takes 20 minutes. It then can be eaten straight away or if you prefer pop it into the freezer to firm up even more.

Easy Homemade Chocolate Sauce For Ice Cream


I’ve given this away as a gift and made it 3 times for my own family.  It is one of those recipes that I  know I will be in the family for a very long time–it is SOOO good.

It is quick, it uses ingredients we usually have on hand, and it tastes WAY better than store bought chocolate sauce.  When I served it to my husband, he just kept grunting and saying “MMM”& “YUM” as he scraped his bowl clean.

I’m surprised he didn’t get his face in it and lick it clean!  Yes, it is that good.

Here is the recipe, it is from  It was recommended by another blog, but I can’t remember which one, which I’m feeling pretty bad about because they deserve a big thanks from me!
