Chai Spice Coconut Ice Cream

This Chai Spice Coconut Ice Cream is Dairy, Egg, & Soy Free. It’s also ridiculously delicious and a little addicting. We ate a lot. And then made it again…

Alright, let’s be honest. I’m not really a gluten free, dairy free, egg free, soy free kinda girl. That’s probably really obvious when you look around at the majority of my recipes. That’s not to say I don’t eat that way occasionally, but I can assure you it isn’t done on purpose. Interestingly I am lactose intolerant, my brother is allergic to dairy, we have several friends that are severely allergic to peanuts, my husband is severely allergic to strawberries and pears (not that it is the same), but you get the point. It isn’t that I wouldn’t like to cook that way from time to time, it’s just… I don’t actually have to, so I never took the time to learn.

When #SundaySupper decided this week was “Free For All” and was going to encompass the things I mentioned above and more, I went ahead and took on the challenge. I was actually pleasantly surprised to learn that I already make a lot of things the right way,  with the exception of gluten. I know so little about gluten free cooking, I won’t even pretend. I am learning though.

Now, after my whirlwind crazy weekend LAST weekend, this week has been wonderful and full of much better things. However, mini me has headed to her 3 week stay at Truman State University and I’m  missing her like crazy. There’s something kind of surreal about dropping a 15 year old (and 14 last year) off at college. Just saying.

Before I drove her yesterday, we spent a LOT of time in the kitchen this week, and this wonderfully delicious Chai Spice Coconut Ice Cream is one of the resulting recipes. We’ve made it a few times, but this time we tried eating them with some vanilla curd drizzled on top, and oh my… there are not words. It was so good. It made amazing, spectacular.

Chai Spice Coconut Ice Cream
A blend of Chai Black Tea and Coconut Cream makes this ice cream a healthier choice than it’s cream counterpart.
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American

  • 1 cup strongly brewed Chai Black Tea – I used Tazo Black Tea, Organic, Chai (4 bags to 1 cup of boiling water and I squeezed all excess water out of the bags)
  • 2 cans (3¼ cups) coconut milk
  • ⅔ cup of Organic Raw Agave Nectar
  • 2 Tbs. arrowroot starch (optional, but preferred)

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together ¼ cup of the coconut milk with the arrowroot starch. Whisk well to combine them.
  2. Shake your cans of coconut milk really well before opening to ensure the coconut cream and coconut water are better combined when opening.
  3. In a medium saucepan on the stove over medium heat, whisk together the arrowroot starch/coconut milk mixture with the tea, agave nectar and all of the remaining coconut milk until blended well. Heat the mixture for 2 minutes, then remove from heat.
  4. Allow to cool completely in the refrigerator before putting into the ice cream maker.
  5. Follow manufacturers directions for your ice cream maker.

    Congratulations :) Your ice “cream” looks absolutely amazing!!! I can almost taste it through my screen. Oh, and I really do need to get an ice cream maker now so that I can try out your fantastic recipe. Thank you, Nicole

    What a wonderful ice cream! Chai is my all-time favorite tea. And, well, coconut is way up on my list of favs too. How great it is also fitting for so many special dietary needs.

  3. says

    That’s a gorgeous flavor choice and combination for an ice cream. You d see the Indians lining up here for it. =) hm I feel the same way about gluten free food. I have no clue how to cook and bake (especially bake!) gluten free, but I am open to learn. Have a nice Sunday Nicole!

      Glad I’m not alone with my gluten free confusion. This ice cream was not created with any of that in mind, I just like it this way. haha Thanks Helene!

    My mom went to Truman State, back in the day when it was called Northeast Missouri State. It’s also where my aunt and uncle met. I love your coconut ice cream. I am lactose intolerant and my youngest daughter is allergic to dairy, so I love having dairy alternatives when it comes to ice cream.

    • says

      I love Truman State. Great experience for her and she’s having a blast.

      I’m glad this ice cream will help. My lactose intolerant self struggles with some things more than others, so I just sub coconut and almond milk (and occasionally soy milk) for anything calling for milk. lol (yep even in my cereal, I know, I’m nuts).
      Hope you guys try it!

    Oh I love the Chai flavor here with the coconut milk!I really really need to invest in an icecream maker looking at your icecream.So soft, so rich, so decadent!!

  7. says

    OMG , this looks and sounds so good !! I love chai and an ice cream with it sounds heavenly. I may just make popsicles out of this this weekend. Love the combo of coconut chai ! looks divine !

  8. says

    Whoa!!! That looks and sounds amazing!! I’ve been consuming less and less dairy in my diet. I will never be able to give up cheese and ice cream is the other huge weakness of mine. Now, problem solved!!!

  9. says

    I WANT THIS!!! Sorry about the all caps and exclamation points, but I felt that I really needed to convey my enthusiasm :) This looks amazing – sooooooo lusciously creamy. And I’m all over the coconut, I wish I could cook with it all the time.

    • says

      lol I don’t mind the all caps and exclamation points. Have you met me? I do that a lot. LOL
      This is probably one of my favorites now. This week we turned it into popsicles to see what would happen with that. Still just as yummy!
      Thanks friend!
