Chocolate Caramel Pecan Ice Cream

Coconut milk makes this creamy ice cream more healthful than high-fat dairy ice cream. Scoop it into homemade Chocolate Waffle Cones and top with caramel and pecans. Delish!

Makes 12 servings


  • 1 (13-ounce) can coconut milk
  • ⅓ cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • ⅛ tsp kosher salt
  • ⅓ cup caramel sauce
  • ¼ cup chopped pecans
  • Chocolate Waffle Cones (see below)


In a blender combine coconut milk, cocoa powder, sugar, vanilla and salt. Blend until smooth. Place ice cream base in a 2-quart ice cream maker and churn 45 to 60 minutes or until mixer thickens to the consistency of soft-serve ice cream. Spread mixture in an 8×8 baking pan and swirl in caramel sauce. Sprinkle with pecan pieces and freeze at least 4 and up to 24 hours before scooping. Serve in bowls or in Chocolate Waffle Cones (see below).
