Chocolate Coconut Vegan Ice Cream

I thought this was an amazing recipe- SO delicious and creamy, simple, EASY, only three ingredients, and vegan, to boot!  I made this back in early November, but it got bumped to the back burner since I was posting about Thanksgiving and then Christmas.  Maybe I'm weird, but I like to make homemade ice cream even in the winter.  (Not that it gets very "wintry" where I live, anyway).  If you like chocolate and coconut, this one is for you! 

If you are interested in another ice cream recipe using coconut milk, check out this Coconut & Lime Ice Cream. 

Note:  My cocoa powder lumped and clumped up when I was making this, and no amount of whisking would fix it.  I just strained it and discarded the lumps that didn't go through the strainer.  The finished recipe was fine.

adapted from Domestic Fits

2 (13.5 oz) cans of full fat coconut milk
1 1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup good quality unsweetened cocoa powder

1.  In a heavy pot over medium heat, add all the ingredients and stir. Allow to simmer until thickened slightly, about 8 minutes.  The cocoa may clump up-strain into a container and refrigerate until cold, about 4-6 hours or overnight.  (Discard cocoa clumps.)

2.  Add to an ice cream maker and churn until set, about 15 to 20 minutes.  Freeze until desired consistency is reached.
