Sometimes, nothing taste better than some good chocolate ice cream.  I have a lot of dutch processed dark cocoa powder so I wanted to make chocolate ice cream using that.

  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1/2 cup whipped cream
  • 2 TBSP dark cocoa powder
  • 3 TBSP sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Mix all the ingredients and try to get the cocoa powder as incorporated as possible.  I’d say mix it for about 2-3 minutes.  Then turn on your machine and let it go.

The chocolate ice cream is going to look a little more grayish than a dark brown, but it taste delicious.  Plus, no eggs (a lot of ice cream recipes call for eggs). 

The first photo is from the mixture coming straight out of the machine.  The second is after I let it freeze for 5 hours.
