A few years ago, I made an easy no-churn chocolate ice cream using Barlean’s chocolate silk greens. This year, when Barlean’s agreed to sponsor #Choctoberfest again, I knew I wanted to make a churned ice cream using the new ice cream maker attachment I got for my Kitchen Aid as a wedding present. I have yet to try this bad boy out, so this was the perfect opportunity!
I gave myself an extra challenge this year to make the ice cream dairy-free. Barlean’s chocolate silk greens is a dairy-free product, so I used coconut milk as the base instead of heavy cream. I added a teaspoon of vanilla, blended the mixture, and threw it in the ice cream maker for 20-30 minutes. Easy-peasy!
At that point, the ice cream will be a very soft-serve consistency. You can also put it in a freezer-safe dish and freeze for 4-6 hours for a firmer consistency.
This is an ice cream you can feel good about eating. The Barlean’s powder is made with fair trade cocoa that adds a rich chocolaty flavor, so it is a great way to sneak more fruits and veggies into your diet.
Of course, I couldn’t resist topping it with some chocolate sauce and rainbow sprinkles, so I wouldn’t exactly call this a “healthy” recipe… but all things in moderation, right?
You can also mix Barlean’s into your milk for a more nutritious version of chocolate milk, add it to your smoothies, or even use it to make hot chocolate.
