I scream, you scream, we all scream for… ice cream! Remember this? Well yes, i do! With the arrival of summer, arrives ice creams which i bet is loved by all. Though in my case i don’t need to wait for summers to have an ice cream… i can have it anywhere and anytime. As a child i grew up seeing my mom making delicious ice creams at home. Me and my sister use to have a huge variety of home made ice creams through out our summer vacations. One of mine, my sister’s and now my son’s favorite flavor is Chocolate. In short anything chocolaty is loved in my family.
Chocolate ice cream is generally made by blending cocoa powder along with the eggs, cream, vanilla and sugar used to make vanilla ice cream. Sometimes chocolate liquor is used in addition to cocoa powder, or it is used exclusively, to create the chocolate flavor. This time i didn’t wanted to go with that regular recipe using eggs. Wanted to switch to an eggless recipe that can be made easily , quickly and taste very much like factory made. Though i don’t have an ice cream maker hence the process of setting the ice cream to it’s perfection takes time and a lot of patience. Wish i could get a new kitchen aid ice cream maker this summer. Till then let’s cheer to the blender.
The recipe i used is adapted from Cuisinart chocolate ice cream recipe. with few variations done by me.
