Easy Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream

Easy Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream - Healing and Eating

This easy vegan chocolate ice cream is made with only three ingredients – full fat coconut milk, cacao powder, and dates. The fiber from the dates and the fat from the coconut milk give this ice cream a rich and smooth creamy consistency. When it came out of the ice cream maker is looked and tasted exactly like chocolate soft serve. I kept it frozen over night to get the nice round scoops, but if you love soft serve, why wait?

For healthy toppings, I added some chopped pecans, which I consider a “dessert nut” and some in season raspberries. However, the sky is the limit and you can easily get creative and throw on whatever you like.
