Home Made Chocolate Ice Cream

I tried a new recipe last Friday. It's home made chocolate ice cream!! I got the recipe from my aunt's neighbour and we tried it out. And we had to freeze it overnight before beating it with the cake beater the next day. Yup no need to use the ice cream maker. So here are the photos and the original recipe.




Ingredients:

250gm Coffee Mate
1/4 Cup of Sugar (Castor)
1 tsp Milk Powder
A pinch of salt
2 1/2 cup of Fresh Milk
1/2 tsp Vanilla Essence
Cocoa powder 2 tsp (Flavour)

Method:

1. Mix all the ingredients until even (except the cocoa powder), strain and freeze it overnight.
2. Next day, beat the mixture with cake beater and don't forget to add your cocoa powder. Beat until it's thick and creamy.
3. Serve your home made chocolate ice cream proudly. You can keep it in the freezer and it wont turn into ice. It will be just like the normal ice cream.

My aunt's neighbour told me that we have to practice making it a few times and only then it will turn out perfect. Guess she is right. We bought 200gm of coffee mate so it's insufficient, that is why my ice cream was melting very fast. Should have followed the recipe exactly.

Another mistake I did was adding the flavour (cocoa) together with all the ingredients. The cocoa didn't mix and I had to use a spoon to crush it and mix it evenly. It took me a few minutes to fix it (to get it even). I was supposed to add the cocoa powder the next day when I'm beating the mixture. 

But nevertheless my ice cream did turn out to be good and tasty. Just needs improvement the next time I do it. :) I've linked this post to Scream 'Ice Cream'! by Daily Cuppa.

  5. It takes some practice to perfect a recipe. I guess you did it well on your chocolate ice cream because it looks enticing and yummy. I tried making one a couple of weeks ago, just to beat the summer heat, and it was just okay. I guess it needs more practice until I produce a perfectly-made home made ice cream. Thanks for sharing your own recipe!
