For the Vegan Coconut Ice Cream:

For the Toasted Coconut Topping:


  1. The night before you want to have ice cream, place the freezer bowl of your ice cream maker into the freezer.
  2. Then in a pot, heat up the coconut milk, coconut cream, sugar and syrup to a simmer, stirring constantly.
  3. As soon as it reaches a simmer, remove from the heat and blend with a handheld (immersion) blender for 30 seconds.
  4. If you don’t have a handheld blender, then transfer the mixture to a blender jug and blend it in there, just make sure the lid is firmly closed.
  5. Pour the mixture into a container with a lid and keep in the refrigerator overnight.
  6. The next day, remove the freezer bowl from the freezer, and get your ice cream machine ready.
  7. Pour the mixture into the ice cream machine and churn according to your ice cream makers manufacturer instructions. It should be around 25-40 minutes to reach soft serve consistency.
  8. As soon as it reaches soft serve consistency, transfer the ice cream to a freezer safe container, smooth it out, cover with foil and place into the freezer to set firmly. This can take 4-6 hours or even longer depending on your freezer.
  9. Prepare your toasted coconut topping as per the linked recipe.
  10. Serve the ice cream with sprinkled toasted coconut sprinkled on top.
