Guest Poster – Christie!

Hey guys! 

While I’m traveling across the country,  I thought I would entertain you with a lovely guest post from Christie @ Honoring Health.    She has a delicious homemade chocolate coconut milk ice cream recipe for you!! Sounds delish!!  Thanks Christie for doing this!! :)


Hi Dairy Free Betty readers! My name is Christie and I write the blog Honoring Health, a blog about Honoring Mind, Body and Spirit through Intuitive Eating and Holistic Wellness.

I am thrilled to be writing this post for Jess while she is away.

Today, I would like to share with you a recipe for one of my favorite treats as the weather warms up – homemade chocolate coconut milk ice cream.

Part of the process of learning to eat intuitively was tuning into my body’s signalsand feeding it the food that makes it sing and unfortunately, dairy isn’t one of them. So, as any ice cream loving girl would, I started making my own!


This chocolate coconut milk ice cream is rich and creamy and totally satisfies that ice cream craving. I also use this recipe as a base for more fun flavors like rocky road or peanut butter swirl. Give it a try and let me know what you think!


Homemade Chocolate Coconut Milk Ice Cream

Makes about a Quart

2 cans coconut milk

1/2 cup agave nectar

3/4 cup cocoa powder

1 tbsp vanilla extract

1/4 tsp xanthum gum

Add all of the ingredients to a blender and process until mixed very well. Place the mixture into the refrigerator for about 2 hours. Remove from the refrigerator and process again just to be sure it is stirred well. Add to your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer instructions. I have found that with coconut milk ice cream, the longer, the better. I left mine in the ice cream maker for about 40 minutes. Remove from the maker and scoop into a freezer safe dish and freeze until ready to serve. If you eat it right away, it will be more like soft serve but if you freeze it before eating, it will be more like store bought. The xanthum gum helps with creaminess as well as preventing iciness. Enjoy!

Thank you, Jess for allowing me to write a post of your fabulous blog! And thank you all for reading, stop on over toHonoring Health at anytime, I’d love to see you all there!


  1. Thank you for given me the desire to have some ice cream...I must go to the store now for some...I'll think of the flavor I'll buy as I drive there. CHOW!

  2. That sounds like the most amazing ice cream!!! I much prefer coconut milk ice cream to cows milk.
