…and then there was dessert


after that amazing mayan bake for dinner, we decided to make up a batch of what has become our favorite “ice cream.” this is a recipe that i got from my friend chelsea at one of my wedding showers. you can make it without an ice-cream maker, but it’s lots easier with it. it’s so easy to make, with only 4 ingredients, that the total time from the initial craving to the eating of it is only about 30 minutes.


  • 1 can coconut milk (Thai Kitchen brand is best for consistency)
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 3 Tbsp agave nectar
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • In a small bowl, put the cocoa powder, agave, and vanilla. Whisk in the can of coconut milk.
  • Pour all ingredients into an automated ice cream maker. Turn it on. Wait 20 minutes.
  • Eat immediately. It doesn’t seem to be as great after it’s been in the freezer a while (too hard).
  • Options: you can also stir in mini chocolate chips or frozen blueberries mid-way through the freezing time!

(Serves 2).

  1. Brooke, I stumbled onto your blog via the 24-7 Prayer international site. In May I saw you & Tim at the 24-7 Gathering with Campus America & noted you’d be married soon. How delightful it has been to see the latest on your lives, the processes you’ve gone through, to read your continuing love story & to get a taste of the big & simple things God’s doing where you are. Your lives are beautiful & I can relate to some of your longings (home, family). You make me want to be friends! 🙂 Bless you & Tim & your hearth.
