Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe / How to make Chocolate Ice Cream / Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream

Yum! Yum! YUM! I cannot believe this ice cream was made at home! By Me!!  I am a chocolate fan and I can eat chocolate in any form and this is pure indulgence!



I know I have already posted a detailed vanilla ice cream recipe, with which you can build on to make any other flavour but I simply had to post this since I relished eating it so much. My family loved it too! No more store bought ice cream! No ice cream maker needed and no ice crystals formed. And it involves only 3 ingredients.

Recipe adapted from - Nigella Lawson, Sweets & Spices



Ingredients
  • 1 cup of Non Diary Whipping Cream
  • 200ml of fresh cream ( I used amul fresh cream)
  • 1/2 tin of condensed milk
  • 2 tbsps Cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • Chocolate sauce ( optional )
  • Chocolate chips ( optional )


Method 
1. Take 1 cup of whipping cream in a bowl, add the vanilla essence and whip on medium speed until stiff peaks form. About 7-8 mins.
2. Add the fresh cream and whip some more. About 3 mins.



3. Add 2 tbsps of cocoa powder and whip until well blended.



4. Add 1/2 tin of condensed milk depending on your taste and preference. Add chocolate chips. Mix well.




5. Pour in a container, c
over well and leave it to set in freezer for 6-8 hours.
6. Once it sets, scoop out how much ever you want, drizzle some chocolate sauce/ toasted nuts/chocolate chips and indulge the creamiest ice cream ever!





Notes 
1. If you get dairy heavy whipping cream, then add 2 cups of that with 1 tin condensed milk. Whip well and add your flavor and freeze. We don't get dairy heavy cream hence I use non diary cream with fresh cream.
2. You can add 1/4 tsp salt. I prefer without it
3. If you live in India and are not able to get non dairy whipping cream, then you can use milky mist fresh cream. Use 2 cups of milky mist fresh cream and 1 tin condensed milk. Beat well and add you flavorings and blend well. That's it!
4. After pouring the ice cream in a container, make sure the lid is firm. If needed, cling wrap and then put the lid over it. If you don't cover the container well, then ice crystals can form.


Until next time,

    1. Thank you so much for your lovely words Annie! No, you can't use malai, it won't whip up to stiff peaks. I use tropolite or Rich non dairy whipping cream. I'm not sure which Rich creme you are mentioning, if it's non dairy you can very well use it. Or use milky mist fresh cream. That also works and available all over. Or do check out the mango ice cream, which uses milk instead of whipping cream.
