  • blender
  • ice cream maker


  • 2 cans coconut milk 13.5 oz each, or 3 ½ cups homemade high-fat coconut milk
  • 2/3 cup pure maple syrup (for Keto: use allulose for 5g net carbs per serving)
  • 2 Tablespoons vanilla extract (optional: the alcohol lowers the freezing temperature, allowing less sweetener and creating a creamier outcome)
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon sea salt optional


  • First, make sure your freezer is set to the coldest setting. Your freezer bowl needs to be in the freezer for 16 to 24 hours at the coldest setting before being used. Use the freezer bowl immediately upon removing it from the freezer, because it starts defrosting immediately.
  • Place coconut milk, maple syrup (or other sweetener) and vanilla extract in a blender. Purée until sweetener dissolves, scraping down sides, if necessary, about 30 seconds.
  • Freeze in ice cream maker, according to manufacturer’s instructions. Serve!
