Coconut, chocolate and goji berries ice cream (Bianca)

We had few warm and sunny days, which made me craving for ice cream. By the time I decided to make it (2 days ago), the weather showed me how unpredictable it can be. But it didn't stop my craving, so here is the recipe for ice cream without an ice cream machine! :)
- 2 x 400 ml cans of coconut milk
- 120 g sugar
- 3 tbsp cacao
- 100 g dark chocolate
- seeds from 1 vanilla pod
- 100 g goji berries
Place all ingredients in a pot over a low heat and stir continuously until the chocolate has melted. I let it boil gently for about 15 min., and I kept stirring so it didn't stick on the bottom of the pan.
After I took it off from the heat, I transferred my batch in a separate bowl, added the goji berries and placed the bowl over a bath of cold water. Stirring it and changing the water few times, I got it to a fairly cold temperature. Now it could be stored in the freezer for at least 4 hours. Every 30 min or so I took it out and mix it with a hand mixer, so it didn't form ice crystals.
After 4 hours or so, I had my ice cream :)


Pin It Now!


  1. Do you need a special bowl for this to sit in the freezer?

    1. I used a stainless steel bowl. I forgot to say in the post, that after the last mixing (with the hand mixer), I transferred the ice cream in a plastic container suitable for freezers.

  2. Ce interesanta e combinatia!!!
    La noi la Plafar fructele goji sunt foarte scumpe...intradevar ca sunt foarte sanatoase,insa mi se pare exagerat de mare pretul si as incerca sa le inlocuiesc cu stafide,oare merge?
    Multumesc si seara frumoasa!

  3. Angelica, sigur ca le poti inlocui! Poti folosi stafide, alune, nuci, etc.
    O zi frumoasa!
