  • 2 13.6-oz. cans full fat coconut milk, refrigerated or frozen for 10 minutes
  • 2/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups strong coffee, brewed and chilled
  • 1 tbsp instant granulated coffee, plus more for topping
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract


  1. If the coconut milk is not previously refrigerated, place cans in the freezer for 10 minutes to allow for the cream to solidify on the top.

  2. Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth.  (Use just the hardened cream in the coconut milk and discard the watery liquid).

  3. Add all of the ingredients to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Taste the mixture to test for flavor.  If needed, add more pure maple syrup to sweeten and/or more instant coffee to make stronger coffee flavor.

  4. Pour mixture into freezer-safe dish or container and place in freezer.

  5. Freeze for 4-6 hours, until mostly solid.  Allow to thaw for 5-10 minute on counter, as needed, before stirring and scooping to serve.
