Chocolate-Orange-Ice-CreamThis dairy free ice cream has a nice combination of orange and chocolate flavors and is sugar free, and is served in cute scooped out oranges.  The flavors are really light and refreshing.  You can use either birch xylitol or raw honey for the sweetener.  The vodka is optional but will give any leftovers a better consistency when frozen.

Dairy Free Ice Cream – Chocolate Orange (Paleo)

Dairy Free Ice Cream - Chocolate Orange (Paleo)
Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2
This dairy free ice cream has a nice combination of orange and chocolate flavors and is sugar free.
  • 1½ cans of Coconut Milk
  • 3 Tablespoons unsweetened Cocoa
  • ¼ cup Birch Xylitol (I use this one) or Raw Honey
  • 2 teaspoons Orange Extract (like this)
  • ½ bar of Organic Dark Chocolate, 85% (I use this one) or chocolate chips*
  • 1½ tablespoons Vodka (optional)**
  • 2 Oranges for serving containers.
  1. Break or chop the chocolate into small pieces.
  2. *You could use chocolate chips but I don't recommend them as even the healthy ones have too much sugar. The 85% dark chocolate has very little sugar.
  3. Place the coconut milk, cocoa, orange extract, vodka and sweetener into the blender.
  4. **The vodka is optional. It gives the leftover ice cream a better consistency when frozen. If you don't want to use the vodka, just make the amount that you are going to eat so there is none leftover.
  5. Pour the mixture into the ice cream maker (This is the one I use).
  6. Turn it on.
  7. Add the chocolate chunks.
  8. Wait 10-15 minutes until the ice cream forms the consistency of a soft serve ice cream.
  9. Cut off the tops of the oranges and scoop out the fruit.
  10. Spoon the ice cream into the oranges.
  11. Serve and enjoy.


4 Thoughts on “Dairy Free Ice Cream – Chocolate Orange (Paleo)

  1. Ice cream, especially Paleo ice cream, is my “day job.” Your recipe looks great! 🙂 I used to only like chocolate by itself; but now I LOVE it with orange or berries. Thanks for sharing!

    • Hi Megan, Thanks so much. Chocolate and orange really is a good combination. For the longest time, I was only making plain vanilla or plain chocolate ice cream, but this year, I really branched out and started making a ton of new flavors. I hope you like it

  2. This sounds wonderful, but one thing really should be changed; since there is no dairy in it, it technically cannot be called ice CREAM. Other than that, it does sound fabulous; I love orange and chocolate together!
