Dairy Free White Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe

Servings: 4
Preparation Time: 15

  • 16 oz full fat coconut milk*
  • 2 pasture raised egg yolks (optional, makes it creamier)
  • 1 cup cacao butter, shaved and melted
  • 1/4-1/2 cup granulated sugar (if using a liquid sweetener, start with 1/4 cup)**
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Place all of the ingredients into a blender and combine.

Pour mixture into an ice cream maker and follow the instructions for the machine. You can also freeze it in a loaf pan if you don't have an ice cream maker.


* For the freshest coconut milk make homemade coconut milk. (See video at this link.)

**Using honey or maple syrup is going to give this a bit of a different taste compared to granulated sweetener.

Consuming raw eggs is not a concern of mine since I buy farm fresh eggs from Tropical Traditions. You can certainly leave them out or temper the eggs.

Is cacao butter the same as cocoa butter? If not, what's the difference? Could white chocolate chips be substituted with similar results? Thanks!

Also whip up egg whites, and fold through mixture before freezing. This is a technique that I use all the time with my ice cream recipe, and am sure it would work well here. Helps to lighten ice cream, significantly.

Where do you find cacao butter? O have never seen it anywhere.

Recipe say's "pasture raised" egg yolks, which is strange and confusing.

Do you perhaps mean "pasteurized" indicating that bacteria have been destroyed by a heat treatment process (common in recipes calling for use of raw egg), or
that the fowls were raised in a more natural farm environment, in which case the term "free range" is generally used?

pasture raised hens are more than 'free range' as free range just means cage free (maybe on cement in a warehouse with an open window) And they are more than 'organic' because organic hens have very bad conditions even though they have not been fed GMO or arsenic. Pasture raised hens are happy hens raised in green grass. Some of the hen houses are moved daily to ensure the eating of green grass. Your local farmer or Natural Grocers has pasture raised hens.

Farm fresh eggs may ensure freshness, but I'd still be concerned about bacteria such as salmonella.

Cory & Carol: Cacao butter, cocoa butter = same thing really. For whatever reason some people choose to use cacao instead of cocoa. You could use white chocolate instead but you may not need any extra sweetener if you do.

John H: Pasture raised - meaning eggs from hens raised on pasture. If you click on the ingredient (it's hyperlinked) you'll be able to read more about it.

Is it possible to substitute the cacao powder for the cacao butter?
# Posted By Esther | 9/17/13 12:44 AM
Can I use your concentrated coconut cream in place of cacao butter?
