dark chocolate coconut ice cream


  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes, toasted

  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream

  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate, melted


Let your ice cream soften a bit, about 5-10 minutes.

While your ice cream is softening, using a offset spatula or a spoon, spread your melted chocolate in a very thin layer on a parchment lined baking sheet. Chill in the refrigerator until hardened.

Once hardened, break up into shards of chocolate.

Combine all ingredients together in a bowl.

Return to the freezer and freeze for 2-3 hours or up to overnight.

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes, toasted

  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips

  • 1.5 TBSPs coconut oil


Combine all ingredients in the microwave, microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until melted.

Be careful with your chocolate, as it can easily burn.

Drizzle over ice cream and watch the chocolate magically harden!


scoop ice cream onto a cone or bowl of your choice, drizzle chocolate shell over the top, garnish with toasted coconut, enjoy.
