This 3 Ingredient Coconut Milk Ice Cream is so easy you’ll almost wonder why you’ve ever made it another way! It’s dairy free and egg free. And honestly it is the thickest, creamiest, best consistency of any homemade ice cream. Most homemade ice creams freeze too fast so they can end up icy, but the coconut milk is so thick and creamy the texture holds up to freezing really well. Even after days in the freezer it’s creamy and delicious. Just be sure to take it out of the freezer for about 10 minutes before you are ready to eat it. And this is healthy too! No dairy, no eggs.

I made it recently for a friend who can’t have dairy while nursing. She hadn’t had ice cream in ages! This is the best replacement. It’s been one of my most popular all-time recipes on Pinterest – be sure to try it!

  • 2 cans coconut milk
  • 1 1/4 c. sugar can substitute agave nectar too
  • 1 tsp. vanilla


  • Shake up coconut milk cans, then open and pour into large bowl. Whisk in vanilla and sugar. Whisk until smooth and then pour into ice cream maker for 20-25 minutes.
  • If you don't have an ice cream maker, pour into a freezer safe tupperware. Put in freezer and stir about every 25 minutes, until firm enough to eat.
  • Before serving, especially if ice cream has been in the freezer for 8 or more hours, get it out to soften about 15 minutes before eating.

The creaminess of the coconut is amazing. Especially considering it’s dairy free! Add it into your meal planning dessert rotation. (See our cute meal planner notepads here!)

    Great recipe with good flavor! Instead of sugar we did 1 cup coconut sugar and 1/8 cup agave nectar, along with 1/2 cup coconut flakes. It was delicious!

  2. What type of coconut milk do you use? I use Grace and it never turns out. Can i remove the top separated part to make it creamier?

    1. I love the Chaokoh brand – it seems to never separate! Thai Kitchen is also good! Yes you can remove the top creamier part but you will need a couple more cans.

      But if you just mix the liquid and cream parts together – it will all end up creaming back together in the recipe!
