Chocolate Ice Cream

Who doesn’t love chocolate ice cream! The most basic of all the ice cream flavors and yet the most loved world-wide. 

Chocolate ice cream can be made from the richest of cream and pure raw cacao or from a variety of plant milks, such as Chocolate Almond Milk Ice Cream and carob as an alternative to chocolate.

Adding a pinch of cinnamon to the raw cacao adds an extra measure of spice that seems to bring a warmth the the chocolate flavor, since raw cacao is actually bitter. 

Ice Cream Machine

While ice cream can be made in a loaf pan, frozen then shaped into balls before it becomes too solid to scoop, I would definitely recommend an Ice Cream Machine.

Ice cream machines are inexpensive, and they do all the work in under 20-minutes. The insert is stored in the freezer so it is always ready when you are to make a quick batch of ice cream. 

Ice cream machines are also fabulous for making sorbets or slushies for a hot summer day, but by all means you’ve gotta try Gin and Tonic Sorbet Shooters! A totally adult summer cocktail!

Easy Homemade Ice Cream

The basic aspect of any ice cream is to mix the batter.

This can be a sweet or savory mix. It can be for creamy ice cream or fruity sorbets. 

Once the batter is mixed and chilled in the fridge for an hour (or over night), the batter is poured into the ice cream maker and in 20-minutes, you’ve got homemade ice cream.

Once the ice cream is made, rather than store it in a large container, which needs to soften a bit before scooping, I will scoop the ice cream into cupcake papers, pop them into a muffin tin in the freezer until they freeze.

Once fully frozen they can then be transferred a closed container, or served right away.
