Are you a vegetarian and looking for a vegan dessert? So what do you think about having a vegan chocolate ice cream, isn’t it? There are various types of vegan chocolate ice cream recipes available on the internet. Some of them are easy to make, and others are not. Thus we should find an easy but tasty recipe to make vegan chocolate ice cream at home.
When we prepare a vegan diet or any vegan meal, we should always avoid adding animal products even in minimal quantities. Likewise, your vegan chocolate ice cream recipe should be dairy-free, egg-free, and gluten-free, but still, it should taste delicious and more creamy.
Ingredients for vegan chocolate ice cream Let us move into the recipe.
Creamy coconut milk cans- 2 x 400g
Caster sugar- 175g
Cocoa powder- 50g
Vegan dark chocolate, chopped- 100g
Sea salt flakes- 1 tsp
Vanilla extract- 1 tbsp
Corn flour- 2 tbsp
The method is easy to follow, but you need to do it right, as mentioned below.
Reserve a small amount of coconut milk in a bowl and leave it aside to use later. Pour the rest of the creamy coconut milk into a saucepan. Add the sugar, cocoa, chocolate, sea salt flakes, and vanilla to the pan. Heat the saucepan about 10 minutes until the sugar is dissolved and the chocolate is melted. Then, mix the cornflour with the reserved coconut milk until the mixture gets smooth. After that, pour this into the hot coconut milk mixture and cook it for another 5-10 minutes. Make sure to stir the mixture constantly. Now you have a thick batter that looks like a pourable custard. Remove the mixture from the cooker and strain into a bowl. Cover the bowl properly and leave to cool to room temperature.
After that, pour this cool ice cream mixture into an ice cream maker. Then mix it for 20-30 minutes until you get soft-scoop ice cream. Now your vegan chocolate ice cream is technically ready. Please transfer the ice cream to a freezer-proof container and freeze until ready to serve. The container should be sealed properly. You can keep this up to 3-4 months.
Sometimes you may not have an ice cream maker at home. Therefore pour the mixture into a plastic tub or dish with enough space and make it freeze for 3 hours. Make sure to stir the mixture every 20 minutes to break up any large ice crystals until you get soft ice cream. Then transfer to a freezer-proof sealable container and freeze until ready to serve. Always remember to leave to stand for 10 minutes at room temperature before scooping into bowls or cones.
Although this chocolate ice cream is for the vegetarians, anyone can taste it, since it gives you a creamy, delicious taste like usual ice cream. Well, try to make it yourself. You can change the taste adding natural flavours as you wish, but follow the method as mentioned here.
