Rocky Road Ice Cream with Coconut Milk


    Ice cream base
  • 3 cups of coconut milk
  • 1 cup coconut cream
  • 2 ounces cocoa powder
  • 4.5 ounces of brown sugar
  • 4.5 ounces of white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 6 egg yolks
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • Ice cream mix-ins
  • ½ cup of chopped almonds
  • ¾ cup mini marshmallows


  1. In a large saucepan, slowly heat the coconut milk, coconut cream, salt and sugars over medium low heat.
  2. Once the mixture starts to bubble, temper in your egg yolks. Do this by adding ¼ cup of the warm coconut milk mixture into the egg yolks while whisking. Repeat 3-4 times until the egg yolks are warm.
  3. Slowly whisk the egg yolks into the mixture in the saucepan. Stir until the mixture has thickened and can coat the back of a spoon.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.
  5. Let cool to room temperature then refrigerate until chilled (about 3-4 hours).
  6. Follow the directions on your ice cream machine for finishing the ice cream and adding in the marshmallows and almonds.

Rocky Road Ice Cream with Coconut Milk Tips

Mix-ins are usually added right at the end of the ice cream freezing process. Adding them too early to your machine may cause it to bind up early and not properly chill your ice cream.

This recipe makes a dark chocolate ice cream, if you want it to be more like milk chocolate, use a little less cocoa (1.5 ounces) or add more sugar (1-2 more ounces).
