Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream
We made chocolate ice cream this week and it was delicious!! I promised to post the recipe so here it is! This is a variation of my Strawberry Ice Cream recipe (recipe link at the bottom of this post). As I try out new flavors I will post them here..
Chocolate Ice Cream
Makes 1 gallon
3 cups cane juice crystals
¾ c cocoa powder
1 T vanilla (only the real stuff)
2 c. whole cream
Whole Goat Milk, as much as needed to fill ice cream maker container (whole cow milk will work too.. :)
1 T arrowroot powder (helps make the ice cream smooth.. but this is optional if you don’t have any)
In a big mixer (like a Kitchen Aid or Bosch) mix together (with the wire whip) the eggs and cane juice crystals until light and lemony colored. Add cocoa powder and vanilla mix again. Add cream and arrowroot powder (if using). When all of this has mixed together completely pour it into your 1 gallon ice cream maker container. Add whole milk until you reach the “fill line” on your ice cream maker container. Follow the instructions that came with your ice cream maker or you can read here: http://www.thefamilyhomestead.com/strawberryicecream.htm for basic instructions (the directions are for strawberry ice cream, but the basic “how tos” will work for any flavor).
