Summer is one of my favorite times of the year and ice cream has always been our family’s one decadent treat. I have always been a label reader, thus I only bought natural brands of ice cream.
In recent years, I noticed some of our “All Natural” ice cream labels, such as Breyer’s removing “All Natural” from their labels and including things like “propylene glycol” in their list of ingredients- sneaky!
So last year I purchased an ice cream maker and vowed to learn new ice cream recipes!
I love to experiment whenever I have the time, and that is one of the many reasons that I love summer!
I have a little more time to play around with recipes and even try new homemade cleaners.
I have been dying to know if my Almond Milk would work in the ice cream maker since the full fat ice cream I make in it makes me feel a little queasy sometimes and the low-fat recipes really turn out more like “ice milk” or a frosty-very soft.
Yesterday I used my ice cream maker and tried an easy frozen dessert.
All you need is Chocolate Almond Milk. I used the Silk brand “Dark Chocolate”, but you could use any sweetened flavor, such as vanilla, if (like my poor migraine prone friend) you can’t have chocolate:
My ice cream maker makes two quarts so I used 4 cups of the Almond milk and ran the machine for around 20 minutes. It froze very nicely!
It was delicious. I put what was left into the freezer overnight. Today it was very hard and not scoop-able, but once it thawed a bit, it was still a cool afternoon snack!
This was super easy to make! You could add toppings to it to fancy it up a bit and if you use it all up right away, you won’t have any storage issues with it either.
