Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream


i received a few emails requesting the recipe for the ice cream pic i posted on monday. ever since i purchased my ice cream maker i've been addicted to consuming ice cream. it's nice to control the amount of sugar and even the kind of cream used. {content}

Chocolate Ice Cream

1 1/2 cup skim lactaid milk
1 1/2 cup light cream
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup raw sugar
2 egg yolks
2 oz dark chocolate, chopped
3 tablespoons strong coffee
1 teaspoon vanilla

put the cream in medium sauce pan, stir in sugar and cocoa and bring to a gentle simmer. in a bowl, mix the yolks and about half the cream together, making sure it's well blended. spoon in a ladleful of the warmed sugar/milk mixture into the bowl, carefully stirring all the while. you don't want to scramble the yolks. add another ladleful until well blended. carefully add the yolk mixture into the saucepan, being sure to stir! raise the temp to mediumish and stir until mixture has thickened, about 10-15 minutes. remove from heat.

in a microwave safe bowl, heat up the remaining half amount of cream to hot. add in the chocolate, mixing well until smooth. add to saucepan and mix well, along with the coffee and vanilla. refrigerate until cold.

make ice cream based on your maker's instructions.


i'm in the Dirty South for the next 3 days. have a loverly weekend!
