Vegan Aquafaba Chocolate Ice Cream

Vegan Aquafaba Chocolate Ice Cream


Serves: 12

This ice cream recipe is great for anyone who doesn’t consume dairy, but still wants a scoop of a classic chocolate treat!
  • ¼ cup coconut oil (60 mL)
  • 1 cup full-fat coconut milk (240 mL), canned
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder (30 g)
  • ¾ cup aquafaba (85 g), from 1 15-ounce (400 g) can of chickpeas
  • ½ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar (120 g), plus 2 tablespoons
  1. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, combine the coconut oil and coconut milk. Microwave for 45 seconds, until the coconut oil is melted.
  2. Whisk the cocoa powder into the coconut milk mixture until smooth. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the aquafaba, cream of tartar, and vanilla. Using an electric hand mixer, beat the mixture for 6 minutes until light, fluffy, and tripled in volume.
  4. Sift in the powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating to incorporate between each addition, about 3 minutes. The mixture should be shiny and have a satin-like appearance.
  5. Carefully fold the chocolate coconut mixture, ¼ cup (30 G) at a time, into the whipped aquafaba. Do not overmix or you will lose volume.
  6. Pour the mixture into a 1 ¾-quart loaf pan.
  7. Freeze uncovered for at least 6 hours, up to overnight. The ice cream will keep in the freezer, covered, for 2 weeks.
  8. Enjoy!
