Chocolate Yogurt Ice-Cream (No ice-cream maker, vegan and guilt-free)

Have you ever thought about making your own ice cream?

I didn’t.

Until I did.

And it was absolutely divine.

Here’s the recipe… With a Vegan version.

Ingredients

Non-Vegan

  • 300g Thick&Creamy Vanilla Yogurt
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup soy milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence/extract
  • 5 packets sweetener (2 tsp worth each) I used my free Xylitol  samples/ 3 tbsp+ 1 tsp sugar (note: do not use stevia unless you are extremely extremely accustomed to its taste because it tastes funny with chocolate. )
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp hot water
.

Non-Vegan

  • 300g coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup soy milk (or other non-dairy milk)
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence/extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon Xanthan gum
  • Blend above ingredients together to form ‘liquids mixture’
  • 5 packets sweetener (2 tsp worth each) I used my free Xylitol  samples/ 3 tbsp+ 1 tsp sugar (note: do not use stevia unless you are extremely extremely accustomed to its taste because it tastes funny with chocolate. )
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp hot water

.

Add-ins: (optional)

  • Peanut butter chips,
  • white chocolate chips,
  • raisins, blueberries,
  • cookie dough,
  • macadamia nuts,
  • sliced almonds,
  • crumbled oreos/cookies,
  • etc.
(I used chocolate rice, raisins and white chocolate chips) The chocolate rice were unnoticeable after the ice cream was complete so its not recommended)


Directions

Mix liquids together except hot water. Dissolve cocoa powder and sugar in hot water and add to liquids mixture. Stir till very smooth. Mix in optional add-ins. Pour this mixture into a shallow container (but with walls high enough that nothing will spill when mixed with a electric hand mixer)

Place container in the freezer. After 45 minutes, remove mixture and stir vigorously with a hand whisk/ electric hand mixer to break up all the ice crystals that have formed. Yes! ALL!

Place container back into the freezer. And repeat the ice- crystal-breaking process. Do not have sympathy for those crystals. They’ll destroy your ice cream and that makes them EVIL! Destroy them! Get your 3/4/5 year old kid to do it if you can’t bear to. They’ll enjoy it. Trust me. I was that kid once upon a time.

The mixture will get thicker and thicker! Keep repeating the process until it reaches a super-thick consistency (or after 5 hours) and let them freeze for at least 5 hours.Patience my friend. (I only have patience when it comes to this and baking… the rewards are awesome)

Before scooping bring out of freezer for 3 minutes.
