Something else.This really is velvety and delicious--an excellent no cook custard-style ice cream. Be sure to beat your egg yolks for 1-2 minutes, until they are light and fluffy, before continuing with the recipe, which will help ensure the very best consistency of the ice cream. Knowing that using all double cream can result in a greasy mouth feel, I substituted half cream and half milk. To intensify the flavour I increased the cocoa by 2 tablespoons, added 1 tsp. vanilla and a pinch of salt. For the chocolate, I added small chunks of a good quality dark chocolate bar during the last minute or two of churning. Just perfect.-15 Sep 2008
Made it healthier.I was looking for a fast ice cream recipe that didn't need to be cooked and could be converted to sugar free. This was wonderful. I used splenda instead of sugar and left out the chocolate. Superb!!-15 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients.Like quickcooker I also used Splenda as I am on a low carb diet. 12.5g seemed to work fine. Lovely recipe.-19 May 2009

In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, bring milk to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring frequently. Stir in cocoa nibs, cover, and let steep for 2 hours.
In a clean heavy-bottomed saucepan, whisk together sugar and cocoa powder until no large lumps of cocoa remain. Then whisk in egg yolks until thoroughly combined. (Whisking in a different order will lead to a clumpy mess.)
Strain milk into yolk mixture, pressing on cocoa nibs to squeeze out all possible dairy, then whisk dairy to combine. Set pan over medium heat and cook, whisking frequently, until custard reaches 170°F on an instant-read thermometer. Custard should coat the back of a spoon and a finger swiped across it should leave a clean line.
Add chocolate and stir until thoroughly melted. Strain into a container or bowl, add salt, and chill in refrigerator or ice bath until base cools to 40°F. Churn in ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions, then serve right away as soft serve or transfer to an airtight container to harden in freezer for 3 to 4 hours before scooping.
You Can't Beat These Homemade Ice Cream Recipes, They're Downright Delicious
There's nothing quite like enjoying a bowl of ice cream made by you. Like most things, making ice cream yourself is super rewarding. Plus, it's the kind of thing you make a big batch of to get you through the week (we're big fans of anything batch-prepared). Whether you're after a smashing Vanilla Ice Cream, tropical Banana Ice Cream or classic Chocolate Ice Cream, we've got over 20 recipes for you to look through.
Have you got the necessary tools? Check out our Ice Cream Makers, too.
We love ice-cream, and we love it even more when it's super easy to make and requires basically zero effort. So say hello to this banana ice cream, which uses only three ingredients, and tastes SOOO good.
Homemade ice cream is a big production. You need to remember to freeze your ice cream maker, make a custard base, chill your custard base, churn the ice cream, then chill the ice cream (unless you're looking for soft serve consistency). Is it worth it? Yes, yes, yes, one thousand times. Every time we take a bite of ice cream made from scratch, we realise we've NEVER had anything as good come from a shop bought tub. Seriously.
This coconut ice cream is no joke. Not only is it dairy-free but it's completely vegan, too. It's ultra-creamy with a sweet coconut flavour that only gets better topped with toasted coconut. We love it with the real vanilla bean, but you can easily use an additional teaspoon of vanilla extract if you don't want to use a vanilla bean.
How to Make this Chocolate Chunk Beet Ice Cream
The best thing is you need only very few ingredients to make this beetroot ice cream: Cooked beets, coconut milk, agave, a little bit of ginger, and dark chocolate. If you want the ice cream to be plant-based make sure the dark chocolate is dairy-free. Most brands are, but unfortunately not all, so it’s best to check the labels.
I actually wanted to get an ice cream maker for so long, but our little apartment is already crowded with kitchen appliances. But as a food blogger you need all this stuff, don’t you? Haha!
The bad thing is that I don’t have enough room for all this stuff anymore, so I started to even store them in the living room some while ago. So I actually wasn’t sure about the ice cream maker. Plus, I usually make most of my vegan ice cream with the blender using frozen bananas and other frozen fruits. So I wasn’t sure if it’s really worth it. But when my mom told me she got an old ice cream maker she hasn’t used in years, I just couldn’t say no…
So this beet ice cream was the first ice cream I tried with my new ice cream maker. And it turned out super delicious! I can’t wait to try more vegan ice cream flavors with it. If you don’t have an ice cream maker and still want to give this vegan red velvet ice cream a try, no problem! Just put it in a freezer-safe container and freeze it for about 4 hours. But make sure to slightly whisk it every 20-30 minutes. Otherwise it will get too icy.
I hope you like this beet ice cream as much as we do! Have a great and sunny week! xx

The Very Best Chocolate Ice Cream
I know this is a bold claim but I made the BEST Chocolate Ice Cream ever….if you haven’t gathered that from the title. Chocolate Ice Cream is, by far, my favorite flavor ever.
And when it’s done right…there’s just no turning back. I know a lot of you may observe lent and may have even done the unthinkable….gave up chocolate. God bless you but that’s not something I can ever give up.
I mean, chocolate helps me stay sane. Just a little square can melt away enough stress to allow me to proceed with my regular scheduled program for the remainder of the day. So…if you’re one of those who gave up chocolate…or ice cream…or dessert for that matter…Pin this one for later!
There’s a creamery in Strasburg, PA right smack in the middle of Lancaster County Amish Country that makes their own ice cream (and waffle cones…but we’ll talk about that another day). When you walk down the street you can smell the sugar caramelizing on the waffle irons and you just kind of get sucked into the little shop.
You have no self control at all and you MUST order a double dipped cone. Really, you don’t have a choice because it’s like a gravitational pull. And some say it’s a tourist trap but I say it’s a must visit establishment if you want to try the best ice cream ever made that’s not made in your own kitchen.
Their from scratch Chocolate ice cream is incredibly sinful in the best sense of the word. Rich, creamy and simple…that’s what I strived for in my very BEST Chocolate Ice Cream recipe.
And I nailed it (no…I didn’t hurt my arm while patting myself on the back.) This recipe is rich, creamy and simple.
How do you make Easy Chocolate Ice Cream?
Making homemade chocolate ice cream is really simple to do but for the best ever recipe some practice in patience must be exercised.
What are the ingredients in Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream?
The best Chocolate Ice Cream starts with the BEST ingredients. Exploding with pure chocolate flavor is the direct result of high quality products like:
- cocoa powder
- chopped semi-sweet chocolate
That’s it. And it’s simple to make….BUT you do need to work ahead because coaxing out the best flavors ever does take time.
So, allow the base to chill out overnight as I did with my fabulous Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream and THEN, after churning, allow the ice cream to freeze overnight. Or not…I know…it’s hard but the best flavors develop over time. And you will be rewarded…I promise. But if you’re really in a hurry you can totally try this easy Snow Ice Cream recipe….that’s if you have actual snow on the ground.
And after all is said and done….and the very BEST Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream in the whole world is ready to dig into…take a seat. Because that first bite will make your knees buckle…and your heart flutter….and all your worries will melt away….because that first bite is a doozy.
And if you really did the unthinkable and gave up chocolate for lent like a crazy person….you should try this Vanilla Chai Ice Cream or this amazing Strawberry Ice Cream that tastes like summer in a bowl…or a cone…however you roll.
Making chocolate ice cream is an easy two step process. First step is to prepare the mixture and chill it in the refrigerator and then second step is to churn it in the ice cream maker.
Make chocolate ice cream mixture
Using a hand blender or Vitamix or any other blender, blend the sugar, milk, cacao powder, and salt on medium speed until all sugar dissolves.
It is important to blend milk and sugar well to get a smooth and creamy ice cream else it can turn out to be hard icy block after freezing.
Add the heavy cream and gently mix it with a spoon or spatula (no need to use the blender) and the mixture is now ready.
For best results chill the mixture in the refrigerator for about two hours.
Make chocolate ice cream in ice cream maker
Before pouring the mixture in the ice cream maker, give it a final mix to ensure even consistency. Churn the mixture for about 35-40 minutes until the ice cream is of soft-serve consistency.
Transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and freeze it for about 6 hours.

How Do You Make Chocolate Ice Cream
You can whip up my 2 ingredient ice cream base in 10 minutes flat. Once you’ve combined your condensed milk into your whipping cream, your favorite chocolate will become the star of the show. Not cocoa powder. Not chocolate chips. It’s melted chocolate that gives this homemade ice cream a super rich and deeply fudgy flavor. After just 6 hours in the freezer, this ice cream is thick and silky-smooth. Prepare to enter chocolate heaven.
