Chocolate ice cream needs no introduction! It is one of the classic ice cream flavors and a favorite among all age-groups. And surprisingly, making it at home is easy with only four ingredients and minimal effort.
Homemade chocolate ice cream ingredients
This is an eggless, no cook homemade chocolate ice cream recipe. The main ingredients are heavy cream, whole milk, cacao powder (you can use cocoa powder), sugar, and a pinch of salt.
One of the great advantages of making ice cream at home is the control over ingredients, i.e. one has the option to use healthier options such as organic milk and organic cane sugar.
How to make chocolate ice cream
Making chocolate ice cream is an easy two step process. First step is to prepare the mixture and chill it in the refrigerator and then second step is to churn it in the ice cream maker.
Make chocolate ice cream mixture
It is important to blend milk and sugar well to get a smooth and creamy ice cream else it can turn out to be hard icy block after freezing.
Add the heavy cream and gently mix it with a spoon or spatula (no need to use the blender) and the mixture is now ready.
For best results chill the mixture in the refrigerator for about two hours.
Make chocolate ice cream in ice cream maker
Before pouring the mixture in the ice cream maker, give it a final mix to ensure even consistency. Churn the mixture for about 35-40 minutes until the ice cream is of soft-serve consistency.
Transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and freeze it for about 6 hours.
