Gluten Free chocolate ice cream

20120325-122257.jpg

I love ice cream! I’ve made a few different kinds now and experimented a bit. I’ve learned a lot, and had fun trying my hand at vanilla bean ice cream, and gluten free cookies and cream. I’m also trying to come up with a good dairy free recipe (stay tuned) and some others…but for now, how about some good old-fashioned creamy no-cook chocolate ice cream? This is, to date, my kids’ favorite.

*side note: you know how adding a tiny pinch of cayenne makes hot cocoa simply amazing? Well. It doesn’t work that way with I’ve cream. Trust me on this. It is sweet and smooth going down, and then your throat catches afire. No need to attempt that little addition. Trust me…

INGREDIENTS:
2 C half & half
2 C heavy cream
1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 C unsweetened cocoa

Whisk all ingredients together. Chill for a few hours.

Process in your ice cream maker, then fold into a freezer safe container and place in the freezer to finish the ripening process.

Getting there!

Enjoy!

One more note: I love to serve ice cream in those individual ramekins. Perfect size for such a rich dessert. The ice cream scoop pictured was one I found at a general store in the small town of Crowell, Texas, tags still on for $2. I think it’s at least two decades old…which made it much newer than many of the store’s offerings! I’ve found lots of neat things in that store πŸ™‚

    • Hi πŸ™‚ Thanks!
      I made some a while back using coconut milk. FANTASTIC! (course I also added more sweetened condensed milk, so….;)
      You can also refrigerate the can of coconut milk, then scoop out the solid, and whip it into whipped coconut cream. Delish, and pretty healthy as well.
      I absolutely love it!

    • It is definitely worth it…there are a ton of complicated ice cream recipes out there, but this simple one is everyone’s favorite (so far).
