Black Sesame Coconut Milk Ice Cream

Black sesame ice cream is a really popular ice cream flavor in Japan, Taiwan, and China. It tastes nutty and milky delicious no wonder it’s a popular dessert served in many Japanese restaurants.

What is black sesame paste (AKA black tahini)

Black sesame paste is made from toasted black sesame seeds.

The consistency should be fairly sticky and thick (similar to nut butter consistency). In the recipe card, I include a link to a store bought version that’s made in Japan. Japanese black sesame paste is roasted and the consistency is quite thick.

To deepen the color of the Black Sesame Coconut Milk Ice Cream, I added a few sprinkles of activated coconut charcoal powder. This ingredient is completely optional. If you are interested to give the ice cream a more goth look, coconut charcoal powder will deepen the color and makes it halloween perfect!

How to make no churn nice cream

When I did a brief instagram survey with my followers, more than 50% of people don’t have an ice cream machine at home. There are many ways to make no churn ice cream (or nice cream) and I found the easiest way to make it creamy rich is by whipping and stirring the batter every 15-20 minutes until you reach a soft serve consistency. For the size of my container it took me about 2-3 hours. The result is absolutely milky nutty delicious!

Optional topping – Strawberry Compote

Since this Black Sesame Coconut Milk Ice Cream recipe is published around halloween, I decided to make the ice cream decor a bit spooky looking. The sweet and tart flavor of strawberry compote actually gives a nice flavor balance to the maple flavored black sesame. It’s sweet, tart, and creamy delicious!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Blend the chilled coconut cream, maple syrup, black sesame paste, salt, and vanilla powder in a high speed blender for about 1 minute or until creamy smooth.

  • Note: Different brands of sesame paste as different consistency. The Japanese brand I use has pretty thick consistency that's almost similar to nut butter paste. Please watch the video first. You can also scroll up the post to see the sesame paste photo. Also, different brands of full fat coconut milk have different consistency. Some have less cream (i.e. more liquid in the can) than others. I used to use Whole Food's canned full fat coconut milk and that was what I used in the video but lately I discovered that WF changed the consistency to quite thin so I had to modify the recipe to Whole Food's 14 oz. coconut cream for a thicker consistency.

  • Pour into a metal bowl or freezer safe container. Distribute the batter evenly and smooth the surface. Cover the bowl and store in the freezer. Stir with a silicone spatula every 15-20 minutes to prevent ice crystals from forming. The ice cream will become more firm after about 2-3 hours in the freezer. For best texture, eat within the same day.

Notes

For darker color goth black sesame ice cream: add 1,000mg active charcoal powder to the blender. You won’t taste the charcoal flavor. I use 2 capsules (500mg/capsule) Bulletproof coconut charcoal.
If you use full fat coconut milk, please use the cream part only. Again, different brands of coconut milk has different consistency. 
If you follow the instructions (use thick Japanese brand sesame paste and use chilled full fat coconut cream), the batter will seem quite thin when you pour it into the metal bowl. Stir and scrape it every 15-20 minutes in the freezer until it becomes more solid. 
This is a dairy-free and low carb ice cream that doesn't contain starch or thickener. It melts quickly once out of the freezer. The consistency won't be as thick as regular ice cream.
