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.

Now that the temperature in Tamil Nadu is hovering around 35° C and schools are beginning to close for summer vacation, everyone is longing for cool treats to beat the heat. This is the perfect time to make ice cream, as homemade ice cream is cheaper and healthier  than what you get in the store. Plain Vanilla Ice Cream can be served with Carrot Halwa to make it even more interesting.

Coffee Ice Cream

We South Indians, especially those from Tamil Nadu, are passionate coffee drinkers, especially filter coffee. In summer, when the mercury hovers a little above 40 °C a compromise may be struck serving very cold ice cream with the flavour of coffee. Of course there are those who would want their coffee and then their ice cream too :).

Banganapalli Mango is the reigning king amongst mangoes in South India. Though people express loyalty to other varieties such as Alphonso from North India or Malgova from Salem in Tamil Nadu, Banganapalli scores high in terms of size, smooth flesh, and delicate flavour. Banganapalli mango ice cream combines the two most sought after treats in summer – mango and ice cream.
