So it rained all day last Saturday and usually, I would adventure out, but I chose to stay indoor and watch a few movies. I have not had a chance to watch any shows or movies on television for many weeks because I have been very busy setting up my next business adventure that is my e-commerce site. I can’t wait to see the finished site. So excited! What better way to relax and enjoy a few free hours I have but with a bowl of delicious Chocolate Ice Cream.
Since I bought my ice cream maker last year, I have been trying very few new recipes, failing some and succeeding at some. One that I have mastered and enjoy making is Chocolate Ice Cream. I know, I know! Chocolate Ice Cream! Yes, and for some silly reason, I have not been very successful at making this wonderful treat. You will never guess why! I bet you can’t! Whole milk! Yes!
Since I have not been able to properly digest whole milk, I have been using lactose-free milk. I slowly realized that I cannot substitute whole milk for many recipes. This Chocolate Ice Cream recipe requires whole milk to have a rich taste and smooth texture.
The lactose-free milk does not give the ice cream the same consistency as would whole milk. I am not so sure if the Lactase enzyme has anything to do with it, but I bet it does. Oh, well! No time to figure out science. LOL
This Chocolate Ice Cream recipe is from The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz. The recipe book was an investment well worth it. In other to succeed this chocolate ice cream recipe, a good brand of chocolate is required. If you are thinking about giving up on homemade ice cream, do not! Try this one, and you will fall in love with it.
Chocolate Ice Cream made with semisweet chocolate. Smooth, creamy and delightful.
