Chocolate ice cream recipe without ice cream maker – Creamy, delicious and easy to make chocolate ice cream recipe using condensed milk & cocoa powder. I rarely make ice cream using condensed milk as I end up using the kitchen aid ice cream maker attachment. Most ice cream recipes work great in it even without the use of condensed milk. But while making ice cream without a machine, condensed milk lends a good texture.
This chocolate ice cream recipe uses just 4 ingredients cream, condensed milk, vanilla and cocoa powder.
For this recipe I have used my electric beater to whip the cream, however you can also use a blender/mixer or food processor with whipping attachment. Just take care not to over whip the cream.
Tips to make chocolate ice cream
- Chill the bowl & beater well for at least 24 hours.
- Use good quality cocoa for a intense chocolate flavor.
- The recipe works best with whipping cream or heavy cream. If using amul cream, chill it overnight and scoop the top portion of the cream in the pack & use.
- You can also make this ice cream with melted chocolate. Just melt the chocolate following the double boiler method and then stir it in the condensed milk until uniform.
