Eat it right away, like soft serve ice cream.  Or freeze it for 30-45 minutes for a more scoopable ice cream.  Leftovers can be saved for smoothies, made into popsicles, or used later for the same ice cream recipe.

With only three ingredients: frozen berries, coconut milk, and optional sweetener, it’s a snap to whip up.

Please note that a high speed blender like my Vitamix or a Blendtec is recommended.  I can’t vouch for the results when using a food processor or a less powerful blender.

It’s a balancing act: too much coconut water will make the ice cream soft, but too little could cause your machine to freeze up.  Either way, soft or thick, your ice cream will taste fine.  It’s a pretty forgivable recipe.  Most of the time, I don’t even measure the ingredients.

If you’re in a hurry to eat it, the ice cream will be more like soft serve.  If you have time to stick it in the freezer for 30-45 minutes, it will firm up.

Freeze the leftovers:

  • in ice cube trays for smoothies or for the next time you make this ice cream
  • in popsicle molds
  • to eat later: just pull out the container 30-60 minutes before you plan to eat it to let it soften up a bit

We like to add mini chocolate chips to our Mixed Berry Coconut Milk Ice Cream because pretty much everything is better with a little chocolate on top!

  1. Place 2 cans of coconut milk in the fridge for at least a few hours, longer is better.
  2. Add chilled coconut cream from the two cans to a high speed blender.
  3. Add 2 cups frozen mixed berries.
  4. Get your tamper ready…you’ll definitely need it!
  5. Mix to combine, adding coconut water as needed to help blend and using the tamper to push the frozen berries down toward the blade during the blending process.

    This was delicious! Being pregnant, I especially have a huge sweet tooth right now, but am trying to stay away from refined sugar. This was the perfect sweet treat to satisfy my cravings. I just used my regular blender and it still turned out great. Thanks, Kathleen!

      Yay! I’m glad it worked in your blender. 🙂

    I want to try this one!

    This ice cream is AMAZING! Thank you for sharing!!! We use raw milk instead of coconut milk (due to a coconut allergy in my house), and it’s been a hit with the whole family. Confession: sometimes I serve with breakfast. 🙂

  5. Teresa Rizzo on 05/22/2017 at 4:40 am

    Wow, this looks easy and delicious. Can’t wait to make it and give it to my family.

    This looks amazing. Can’t wait to try it.

    I never thought making my own ice cream could be so easy. Yum!

    • Kathleen on 05/30/2017 at 10:31 am

      I know! So easy!

    Raspberries are coming in now and this makes a good “ice cream”. Of course, my husband was all about adding the chocolate chips on top. He adds them to every different flavor that I make.

      3 cheers for chocolate chips! 🙂
