Homemade Sugar Free Chocolate Ice Cream
I often wonder why I see so many recipes for ice cream that contain a lot of sugar.
When I was a kid, it was recipes, such as these, that got me into sugar trouble. As a result, I try to go sugar free whenever possible.
First of all, there is a way to make ice cream without all of the added sugar.
When you make your own ice cream, you have the ability to use sugar free ingredients in it. Hence, for us to make a homemade sugar free ice cream is possible.
The ingredients for this recipe differ somewhat than the regular recipe
We will be using evaporated milk. Because evaporated milk does not contain sugar, it is a good choice. However, we will need to add some kind of a sugar alternative to this instead.
We will also be using a heavy whipping cream.
While heavy whipping cream does not have added sugar to it, it is not a perfect product for everyone to eat.You. can sub in a 50/50 mix of Greek Yogurt and milk. However, it is the 'fat' in heavy whipping cream that makes the ice cream the delicacy that it is.
There are other ingredients that you will need to make this.
When we use unsweetened cocoa, we add the chocolate taste to this ice cream. We will also be adding a sugar alternative to make this taste even more like the real stuff.
The recipe for Homemade Sugar Free Chocolate Ice Cream
I just found some really cute ideas for ice cream bowls. You can find a good variety of ice cream bowls at good prices on Amazon.
What you will need to make this.
Heavy Whipping Cream- 2 cups
Evaporated Milk- 1 3/4 Cup
Sugar Substitute- 1/2 Cup Equivalent
Unsweetened Cocoa- 2 tablespoons
How to make this
You will need a stand mixer with a whisk attachment for best success with this.
In a small bowl, mix together the sugar substitute and unsweetened cocoa. Set this aside.
To the mixing bowl, combine together the evaporated milk and whipping cream. Give this a few stirs by hand.
Now, you can add your small bowl contents of the unsweetened cocoa and sugar substitute to the mixing bowl.
Set the mixer on low for 15 seconds and then increase it to high. Whip the ingredients until a peak forms- about 4-5 minutes.
Give the mixture a quick stir and then pour it into a freezer-safe container.
Freeze overnight or for about eight hours prior to serving.
