Rich, creamy and delicious ice cream made with just 5 ingredients. It is the perfect way to treat yourself after a long day. Not a fan of coffee ice cream? Make the base and use other flavor add-ins to create the perfect treat you will enjoy.



4 cups coconut cream 

1 cup of coconut sugar

2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

4 egg yolks

1/2 cup cold brew coffee


*First, if you can’t find coconut cream, you can use coconut milk. Just put 4 the cans of coconut milk in the fridge for a few hours to let it chill. The coconut cream and the coconut water will separate. The cream will settle at the top of the can. 

Before you begin, let all of the ingredients sit on the countertop until they reach room temperature. 

Now, add all the ingredients to a large mixing bowl and whisk until the mixture is smooth.

If you’re using an ice cream maker, follow the manufacturer’s directions. Then transfer the ice cream to a container and freeze it for 2-3 hours. Serve with chocolate shavings and enjoy!

If you are not using an ice cream maker, transfer the mixture to a metal bowl and freeze the ice cream for 30-45 minutes. Then, beat it with an electric hand mixer. Repeat this process until you can’t easily mix the ice cream anymore. Serve it with chocolate shavings or keep it in the freezer for later.
