Combine all ice cream ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend until completely smooth. Pour into an air-tight container and chill until very cold.
Measure out 3/4 - 1 cup of the healthy cookie dough. Scoop out small balls with a teaspoon, roll them lightly, and freeze on a plate or baking sheet.
When ice cream mixture is very cold, churn in an ice cream maker, according to manufacturer directions. Meanwhile, combine 1/3 cup chocolate chips and 1 1/2 tsp. coconut oil in a small bowl. Microwave in 30-second bursts, stirring very well in between each burst, until totally melted and smooth.
When ice cream mixture has the texture of soft serve, after about 25-30 minutes, slowly drizzle in melted chocolate-coconut oil mixture, to create a chocolate chip swirl. After all chocolate mixture is incorporated, add in the chilled cookie dough bites. When well combined, scrape mixture into a parchment-lined loaf pan or other freezer-safe air-tight container.
Freeze for 1-4 hours or until desired consistency.
