Dairy Free Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe


Now we’re talking. CHOCOLATE!

Dairy-free chocolate ice cream, that is.

We’ve made so many ice cream concoctions over the years.

Why on earth did it take me so long to create chocolate ice cream?

After all, my kids know if I could take one food with me to a stranded island…

it would be chocolate.

So this ice cream is definitely chocoholic approved.

We absolutely love having our gel ice cream maker (affiliate) frozen and ready in the freezer for anytime we want homemade ice cream.

And we can have it ready to enjoy in 30 minutes.

Milk allergy life ain’t so bad.


There are soooo many dairy-free coffee creamers on the market these days.

Most should work for this ice cream recipe, as long as they are nice and thick. 

  • soy
  • coconut
  • almond
  • cashew
  • oat
  • pea

Then when you choose your dairy-free milk for this recipe, you can match with the creamer. 

Such as, using both coconut creamer and coconut milk like I prefer. 

Or feel free to mix and match the types of creamer and milk. 

I’ve been known to use pea protein half and half with oat milk. 

And it’s still delicious. 

Use whatever is best for you and what you have on hand that’s safe for your allergies.

Have fun experimenting with flavor combinations and finding your favorite! 


Sugar content varies by which creamer and milk you use. Feel free to taste the mixture before adding the 1/4 cup of sugar and see if it’s already sweet enough. You can easily omit the sugar from this recipe.

Sometimes we chill the mixture in the freezer for 15 minutes before churning and/or chill the finished ice cream in the freezer for 15 minutes before eating.

Experiment a little and you’ll find a good system to get the best texture depending on the ingredients you choose.

It’s easy to find cones that are dairy-free and allergy-friendly. Cake and waffle cones are one of our Aldi staples and waffle bowls are one of our Target snacks. Or serve in a dish!

Chocolate Ice Cream Dairy-Free


Makes 4 Servings


1 cup plain dairy-free coffee creamer
1/2 cup plain dairy-free milk
1.5 tsp vanilla extract (affiliate)
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup sugar
pinch of salt


Whisk all the ingredients together in a large measuring cup or bowl.

Put mixture in the freezer for 15-30 minutes to get it really cold. (optional)

Remove mixture from freezer and pour the mixture into your ice cream maker.

Churn according to your machine directions. Ours takes about 30 minutes in our small gel machine.

If you want the ice cream firmer for cones, cover container and put the ice cream in the freezer for another 15-30 minutes. (optional)

If you have any leftovers, freeze it for later. Put the leftover ice cream in your blender before serving in order to make it creamy again.

Hope you enjoy this dairy-free homemade chocolate ice cream as much as we do!
