Ingredients

For the date-sweetened version

For the keto and sugar-free version

Instructions

  • Place a deep loaf pan in the freezer. 
  • Remove coconut milk from the refrigerator and separate the cream from the water. In a high-speed blender or food processor, add the cream first, followed by the coconut water. Blend until just combined.
  • Add your dates/granulated sweetener, protein powder, and cocoa powder and blend until thick and creamy- Do not over-blend.
  • Transfer the hot chocolate ice cream to the chilled loaf pan. To ensure it doesn't become too icy, lightly mix your ice cream ever 20-30 minutes for the first hour.
  • Before eating, thaw out the loaf pan for 15 minutes. Lightly wet an ice cream scoop before scooping out into a bowl. 

Notes

* If you use more than 1 scoop of protein powder, blend a little longer. If it's too thick (this can happen with casein protein powder), add a tiny bit more coconut milk.
Do not use lite coconut milk, as this will become too icy.
For a soft-serve style ice cream, enjoy immediately or freeze for 15 minutes.
If your ice cream is too icy, let thaw for 15 minutes before scooping. If for some reason it won't thaw nicely, re-blend and enjoy as is.
