Happy June! How on earth is it already June? It may not be technically Summer quite yet, but it’s never too early for ice cream.

You should know by now how I have a total obsession with ice cream. I’m pretty sure I always have been obsessed with ice cream. And really, who could blame me? It’s delicious! In a bowl, with or without a cone topper, in a cone, with or without sprinkles, hot chocolate sauce, whipped cream, strawberries… you name it.

Are you hungry yet?

I’m partial to certain flavors, as I’m sure we all are. And depending on the day, definitely want one over another. Totally normal. But never in a million years did I think I’d be making my own ice cream. Of course, I’ve been at it for years now, but it still amazes me how out of this world delicious and creamy homemade ice cream is.

It’s SO much better than any store bought variety. And I’m not just saying that. If you’ve ever had homemade ice cream, I’m sure you can agree. And if you haven’t, what are you waiting for?! Oh… an ice cream maker? We’ll get to that in a bit…

Having a child who has a food allergy has made me more aware of how prevalent other food allergies and sensitivities are. I won’t get into the statistics, but it’s alarming. It’s hard enough navigating a world around one allergy at times, I can’t even begin to imagine what others go through who have multiple allergies or several children with different allergies.

We may not be sensitive or allergic to dairy here, but I’m all for trying new things and giving delicious options to those who can’t have it. A world without ice cream is sad. And every person deserves delicious creamy ice cream in their lives!

So, here’s a DAIRY FREE ice cream for you to try! This coconut coffee ice cream is made with coconut milk, not cows milk or any heavy cream but you’d never know it from how amazingly creamy and delicious it is! The coconut and coffee pair beautifully, both playing off each other. It’s a perfect match! Top it off with your favorite ice cream toppings or eat it as is, either way, this is an absolute must make this summer!

Still need an ice cream maker to whip up this delicious treat?! Check below for the details!

    What is Coffee Syrup? (I’ve never noticed it in supermarkets.)

    • Rachel — June 2nd, 2014 @ 5:15 pm

      It’s a coffee concentrate, usually found near other liquid and powder add-ins for milk. I’ve linked to it within the post if it is not available locally.

    I would have never thought to put coconut and coffee together but it sounds fantastic! I love that bowl in the pic!

    Love coconut and coffee together – such a flavor match-made in heaven!! I love that it’s dairy-free…because of you, I’m so much more aware of allergies now :)

    • Rachel — June 3rd, 2014 @ 7:28 am

      It really is such a perfect flavor combo! And I’m really glad to hear that about the allergy awareness :) Every little bit helps!

    O.K. I SWEAR I’ve never said this before but….. I have never wanted to jump through my computer screen and devour something so bad ever, the HD screen isn’t helping! ;p This. is. perfect.

      Thanks so much Gwen! :)

    Thanks Rachel. I completely missed that “Coffee Syrup” was a link in the post. (Of course you would have provided a link. Duh.)

    Coffee Syrup might be an American thing. I’ve definitely never seen that particular product here in Canada.

    David Church — June 2, 2014 at 9:54 pm

    FYI for Canadians:

    Amazon Canada carries a product which appears similar to the Coffee Syrup linked by Rachel.

    Nescafe Iced Java Cappuccino Coffee Syrup, 470ml Bottle by Nescafe

      Thanks for the link, David! That’s very helpful. :)

    The recipe for this coconut coffee ice cream is what caught my eye. I’m lactose intolerant and coffe ice cream is my fave! Also the apple salted Carmel looks amazing too. Wonder if I could substitute for coconut milk with that one too?

    • Rachel — June 3rd, 2014 @ 7:26 am

      I don’t see why it wouldn’t work! Just know that it will obviously have a coconut flavor to it. :)

    Taylor @ What Vegetarians Eat — June 4, 2014 at 4:33 pm

    Hi Rachel! That ice cream looks so good and it combines my two favorite things, ice cream and coffee! I was hoping since it is made with coconut milk that it would be vegan. Any ideas how to make it without the egg?

    • Rachel — June 4th, 2014 @ 7:05 pm

      You can try skipping the eggs completely. Follow the recipe up to that point and then skip ahead. It will likely be harder after freezing, so keep that in mind.

    Thank you for the recipe…it looks like perfection. The pic caught my eye and then the bowl did too…would you mind sharing where you got the great bowl or who makes them?

    Kind regards,

    • Rachel — June 23rd, 2014 @ 7:50 am

      The bowls are no longer available but I purchased them a few years back from anthropologie.

    Love them, love Anthropologie…thanks for getting back to me!

    Hi – I use the really rich coconut milk from Trader Joes, so think that I may be able to skip the syrup and simmer espresso beans in the milk to get the coffee flavor. With the sugars, coconut fat and egg yolks, I am thinking that added sugar is not needed to keep this scoopable. What do you think? Thanks, Debbie

    • Rachel — October 10th, 2014 @ 8:21 am

      You can certainly give it a try that way. I don’t think it’ll have quite the same flavor in the final product but it’s worth a shot! Good luck and enjoy!

    I don’t have an ice cream maker, do you think blending it in a Nutribullet and then pouring it into popcicle molds would work?

    • Rachel — December 22nd, 2014 @ 7:24 am

      I really can’t be sure how they’ll turn out with that method but you’re more than welcome to give it a try!
