Homemade Chocolate Icecream Recipe |  Kid Friendly Recipes |  Summer Frozen Recipes
Time changes, preferences change and what I ignored all this while, finally gets attention in my kitchen! Chocolate has been extremely unappreciated ingredient in my house given that both my husband and I aren't its fan. So what are the chances that our little one in fact adores it? 100%, if you are curious! - Who knew?

So when I made Eggless Vanilla Icecream the last time around, the very first question that my little one posed was when was I making Chocolate Icecream? So much for all that icecream enthusiasm the preceding weeks. I proposed to make it only if this vanilla version got over.  Got to give it to the dude - he worked very hard at polishing it off :)
Homemade Chocolate Icecream Recipe |  Kid Friendly Recipes |  Summer Frozen Recipes
This recipe comes from my Icecream maker manual and I love it for the simplicity and ease of making the recipe. If you love chocolate, then you can't afford to give this one a miss. Intensely chocolatey - feels like eating a creamy chilled version of a chocolate bar. Err, sorry for such a mundane description; its hard for a non chocolate lover to really describe the sensation of a chocolate icecream. So, if any of you chocolate fans make this, send me your testimonial and I would post it here. :) :)
  • Cook time:
  • Prep time:
  • Serves: 8+ people
  • Yields: Makes 5 cups (ten 1/2 -cup servings)
  • 3/4 cup Cocoa powder
  • 1/2 granulated Sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed dark Brown Sugar
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1 cup Whole Milk
  • 2 cups Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 tbsp pure Vanilla Extract
1. Sift the Cocoa powder in a bowl. I use Organic Cocoa powder.
2. Whisk the sifted cocoa with sugars and salt. I have used Organic Cane sugar and Himalayan pink salt along with Brown sugar.
3. Once combined , pour the milk and whisk to combine.
4. You can also use a hand mixer on low speed until the the sugars and salt are dissolved.
5. I have used Raw Milk in this recipe along with Raw Cream making this icecream raw as well.  Add the cream and vanilla,
6. and stir until combined.
7. Cover and refrigerate 1 to 2 hours, or overnight.
8. Prepare this as per your Icecream maker's instructions. If you do not own an icecream maker, Please refer Step 11 of my Eggless Vanilla Icecream Recipe post
9. The icecream looking all ready in 15 minutes.
10. Its still soft and creamy at this point. For a more firmer consistency, I transfer it to a freezer friendly container and freeze it for about 2 hours.
11. Go on, go on. I certainly wont judge you licking the churner off all that chocolate - esp. when my little one and me are in the process of doing just that ;) .
Serve it as it is, or garnished with nuts, fruits and whatever strikes your fancy and palate, while I go and finish my melting icecream. Homemade Chocolate Icecream Recipe |  Kid Friendly Recipes |  Summer Frozen Recipes

Hi I found your receipes simple and easy to make especially OPOS. For icecream as heavy whipping cream is non dairy in India. Please suggest healthy options for kids

I did not get your question Avantika. Are you asking me for a non dairy option? Just use cream ( I have heard Amul brand works well) for this recipe and give it a try. Hope this helps --DK

This is the best ice cream. My husband loves it! During this lockdown I shared the recipe with my sisters and they raved about it also. I have made it with different mix-ins like chopped chocolate, chocolate chips, mini chocolate chips, walnuts-all delicious.

That looks absolutely delicious. Thanks for sharing such wonderful recipes. Can I use non dairy whipping cream with the dairy cream ?

Though I have never tried it myself, I have seen many people making ice cream using Coconut whipped cream. I am sure you can although you would need to scout google for the methods in case it doesnt work the same way as regular icecream. --DK

This is so cool and would definitely come in handy.

Do you think you would use the same amount of instant coffee granules as you use cocoa, to make coffee ice cream? Thanks for sharing your recipe!!!!

By Priyanka on May 20, 2015

Hi I tried the same recipe when I got my cuisinart and wasn't too thrilled with the final product. Where do you get heavy cream? I used Amul and feel like maybe it wasn't creamy enough?

By Meenu on Apr 21, 2015

Hi can I use the Amul fresh cream instead of heavy cream

By maryam on Mar 7, 2015

:wink: i made it without the ice cream maker ( i mix it very well and then freezed it for 2 hours) is it ok ? :-o

By Lea on Oct 25, 2014

I don't understand the "Eggless" in the title...I've never EVER heard of ice cream made with eggs in the first place.

Almost all commercial icecream are made using a custard base which contains EGGS. Research in google :) --DK

By Nazeen on Jun 29, 2014

Hi this looks awesome. Thanks. But what is a freezer proof container?

By saranya on Jun 29, 2014

Nice recipe.1 request to you. Could you elaborate the reason for using various other salts instead of the normal white salt ? Are there any health benefits?

By J'Marinde Shephard on Jun 28, 2014

Step 11: I have heard of this being done in a gallon size zip bag and one takes it out every half hour or so and massages it until it firms up.

By JH'Marinde Shephard on Jun 28, 2014

"Step 11" if one does not have an ice cream machine??????? Please elucidate in a bit more detail.

I make this using an Icecream maker. If you don't own, pls refer Step 11 in my Eggless Vanilla Icecream post where I have detailed on how to do it otherwise. :) --DK
