I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream!

That’s right!  I said Ice Cream!  Chocolate Ice Cream!

I’ve been experimenting all summer, and not only do I have a great recipe for you, but it is an excellent activity to keep the kiddos entertained at the same time (if you choose to do this method.)

The best part, other than the amazing taste, is the simplicity!  Just a few simple, pure, ingredients that you probably have on hand, a little waiting time, and dessert is prepared!  A creamy, delicious dessert that no one would ever guess is SUGAR FREE!

Here’s what you need:

3 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream

1/4 c Pyure Sweetener

1/2 c Unsweetened Cocoa

1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla

Let it cool on the stovetop until the pan is not scalding.  Place in the refrigerator to bring down to at least room temperature. (You don’t want to add the mixture to the ice cream maker or plastic bags at a high heat.)

Here are your options:

Kids version:

Pour 1/2 cup of mixture in a quart size Ziplock bag.  Seal well!  Place that bag in a gallon size ziplock filled with several cups of ice and 1/4 cup ice cream salt.  Seal the gallon size bag.  Hand it to your child with a dish towel and have them shake it until exhaustion or until the ice cream is the consistency of soft serve.  Enjoy!

 

No mess version:

Pour your saucepan of cream mixture into an ice cream maker, turn on, and walk away.  It should be nice and creamy in about 30 to 45 minutes!  Enjoy.

 

I hope your family enjoys this as much as ours!  Happy summer!!!
