Roman's Dairy-Free Chocolate-Coconut Ice Cream

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 1/2 quarts
  • MAKE-AHEAD

Rori Trovato of Rori's Artisanal Creamery in Santa Barbara, California, creates all kinds of ice creams. Ironically, her son, Roman, has become lactose-intolerant. "Poor guy," Trovato says. "His mom opens an ice cream shop and he can't have any!" That's why she created this dairy-free flavor.

  1. 3 cups unsweetened coconut milk
  2. 3 tablespoons agave syrup
  3. 1 1/4 cups sugar
  4. 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  5. 3 large egg yolks
  6. 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  7. 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  1. Set a fine-mesh sieve in a large bowl set over a bowl of ice water.
  2. In a large saucepan, whisk the coconut milk and agave syrup over moderately low heat until warm. In a medium heatproof bowl, whisk the sugar and cocoa powder. Gradually whisk in 1 cup of the warm coconut milk until smooth, then whisk in the egg yolks. Scrape the cocoa paste into the saucepan and whisk until blended. Cook the custard over moderate heat, whisking constantly, for about 6 minutes, until very hot and slightly thickened; do not let it boil. Immediately strain the custard into the prepared bowl and stir in the vanilla. Stir the custard until chilled.
  3. Freeze the custard in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturers' directions. Transfer the ice cream to a large plastic container and freeze until firm, at least 4 hours.
  4. In a small skillet, toast the coconut flakes over low heat until lightly browned, 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate and let cool. Serve the ice cream topped with toasted coconut.
