After getting recipe requests for adding some ice cream recipes, I made a few of them and one of them was a chocolate ice cream. So sharing this Easy chocolate ice cream recipe which does not need any ice cream maker and also you do not have to whip it twice or thrice. Just make once, freeze and then enjoy. A similar ice cream is this Chocolate chip ice cream.

The best part of this chocolate ice cream recipe is that there are no ice crystals in the ice cream. You can make this ice cream any time and serve it whenever required. This recipe gives a large block of ice cream. You can even make sundaes or special desserts with this ice cream.

Few More ice cream and kulfi recipes on blog are:

Do use a good quality cocoa powder for the ice cream. about cream, I have used amul whipping cream, which is 30% fat and it did whip till stiff peaks. If using 25% fat cream, then you can whip it till soft peaks. If you add icing sugar in this cream, then you can whip it till stiff peaks. The same recipe can also be made in an ice cream maker. I have used brown sugar in the recipe. You can use regular sugar too.

I have tried many of your dishes and they are always appreciated by my family..its my first time to try out the chocolate icecream and it’s just delicious. Loved your chocolate cake recipe too. Looking forward to trying out more homemade icecreams.5 stars

    1. Thank you Nisha. Glad to know that the chocolate ice cream turned out good. Thanks for the feedback on the other recipes as well. Do try some more homemade ice cream recipes from the blog and you will like them. Most welcome.

  2. I used amul cream for the chocolate ice cream but after whipping it did not form stiff peaks.please advice

    1. the cream has to be chilled and cold. try whipping for some more time. even if you get soft peaks it is fine.

  3. I tried this recipe with Amul fresh cream instead of whipping cream. It was excellent. My 6 year old daughter simply loved it. Thank you for posting such a easy quick and chemical free recipe.5 stars

    1. thank you sailaja for this review and rating. glad to know that your daughter loved the chocolate ice cream. welcome.

    1. vanilla extract is different from vanilla powder. one is a liquid and the other is in the powder form. in vanilla powder also you get artificially flavored powder which is like a white powder and a black or brown colored powder which consists of just the vanilla seeds.
