Vegan or Omni Chocolate Ice Cream
(The vegan version is shown here.)
1 cup melted coconut oil (or, for the omni version, use heavy cream)
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
4 cups almond milk, soy milk or rice milk (or, for the onmi version, use cow's milk)
Step 1: In a blender, blend first 4 ingredients until creamy.
Step 2: Add milk and continue to blend for about 2 to 3 minutes, or until sugar is completely dissolved and no grainy-ness is left in the liquid.
Step 3: Place this mixture in your ice cream maker and try to remain patient while it freezes!
As a side note, this is the ice cream maker I have...
I really, really love this machine because there is no salt and ice to worry about and no bowls to freeze. Just pour the mix in and turn on the machine! However, they have a new color out that is to die for, so if you plan on investing in this, you are the lucky one!
Oh, one thing I forgot to mention. Some people think that "vegan" means "diet". This is by no means a diet dessert. Although no animal fat was used in this recipe, the coconut oil packs 19 grams of fat (correction from previous posting) per 1/2 cup serving. With that, enjoy!
