Easy Chocolate Ice Cream (No Egg)

I have adored ice cream from childhood. I have always wanted to make ice cream at home so that I can have rich and creamy ice cream whenever I wanted it. Store bought ice cream is never satisfying as it has a lot of air in it, and it isn’t the all that healthy due to the added colouring, preservatives, stabilisers, etc. I came across a recipe in Hershey’s Chocolate and Cocoa Cookbook, but it used ingredients that are not available in India. I have modified that recipe extensively to adapt it to what is easily available in Indian stores. It is a very easy and simple recipe that uses only 4 store bought ingredients and is also vegetarian.

Nutritive Value

This chocolate ice cream is a high energy product. The condensed milk provides a large amount of sugar and together with the cocoa provides good quality protein. The additional bonus is the iron from the cocoa. On the flip side, the cocoa contains caffeine, and, therefore, those with sleep disorders should avoid chocolate ice cream as a dinner dessert as the caffeine will keep them awake.


  • 2/3 C Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 2 Condensed Milk Tins (Milkmaid or Mithai Mate)
  • 1 L Fresh Cream (Amul)
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 2/3 C Water


  1. Boil the water in a small saucepan. Remove from heat.
  2. Immediately add the cocoa. Stir and blend well.
  3. Place the condensed milk and vanilla essence in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Add the cocoa and blend using a wire whisk.
  5. Pour the fresh cream into the bowl and blend again till even the tiny blobs of cream disappear. Wait till it comes to room temperature.
  6. Pour into ice cream containers until they are half to three fourths full (to leave room for expansion during freezing).
  7. Close and freeze.


  1. If you’re using cream from a carton, you will need to shake the carton well to remove lumps.
  2. Do not buy cartons kept in refrigerators in the store. It is very difficult to remove the lumps from refrigerated cream.

  1. Thanks for sharing this eggless Icecream recipe . seems delicious! Would like to try it
    I love the way you explain the steps and the reasons Ma’m – transports me back in time to your classes!

      • I increased the freezer setting as I wanted to serve in the evening -kept it for about 8 hrs . became little hard and little difficult to scoop out . next time will try and lower setting overnight. The ice cream with ready made mixes usually have crystals are are watery on melting but this was smooth and delicious!

  2. Hii actually i also use this recipe n it’s great but want to make ice-cream in honey almond flavor can you suggest how much honey should i add n alterations in other ingredients too

    • Hi, you have asked an interesting question! I cannot answer immediately because with the summer heat intensifying I’m reluctant to experment with ice cream making. Besides, are you a vegetarian? The ingrdients will vary according to that.
