Choco-chip chocolate ice-cream.... Nik's favourite

My elder one is crazy about chocolate flavour. He loves it in all forms.... say chocolate, milk, milkshake, cakes, ice-cream and anything chocolatey. His favourite is chocolate ice-cream. He can eat bowls and bowls in one time. Every time he is offered ice-cream, he would definitely pick chocolate flavour or none

This summer we decided not to buy ice-cream but instead make at home. Oh my ... he has been having a lot of fun eating whenever and how much ever. Topped with few choco chips and sometime a little chocolate syrup, his ice-cream bowls have been picked up by him with a smile every time

I always have fresh homemade cream at home so I could make his favourite anytime he wanted

Serves... 4 ppl
Serve option... Frozen

This is what u'll need....

Cream - 1/4 cup
Condensed milk - 1/4 cup
Cocoa powder - 2 heaped tbspn
Choco chips - 1 tbspn + few to top
Ice-cubes - to help whip up the cream

Here is the stir....
  • Chill blender blades and a steel bowl that you are gonna work with. Place ice-cubes in a wide bowl and put the working bowl on it to keep it cold while you are working
  • Add cream to the bowl
  • Whip it using an electric hand blender. You can hand blend too but it will take more time. I dont have that much patience :)
  • Continue  whipping till it is soft and fluffy.... mine took about 4-5 minutes
  • Pour condensed milk into the milk in 2-3 batches
  • Fold it gently to keep the cream fluffy while you work with it
  • Add 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder to this and fold it in evenly. You can add more if you want

  • Sprinkle some choco chips and mix gently one more time
  • Pour this into an airtight container. Top it with a few more choco chips
  • Keep it in the freezer for 4-6 hours. You can take it out when it is 2 hours and mix it gently one more time. Put it back in the freezer
  • Leave it in the counter for a minute or two before you try to scoop it out into bowls
  • Serve immediately topped with a few more choco chips or drizzle a spoon of chocolate sauce on top

  • Keep the blades and bowl chilled when working with the cream
  • Increase the amount of cocoa powder if you want
  • Fold the ingredients into the cream gently without flopping its fluffiness
