This recipe has revolutionized my family’s summer. My kids go crazy for this ice cream recipe and they can even make it themselves. Chocolate ice cream is a summer necessity in our house, and probably almost every house in the country. Nothing beats playing outside in the heat for hours then coming in for a bowl of homemade chocolate ice cream , there are few things that can top that ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 2 cups heavy cream (whole milk will work too, it just won't be as creamy) You can also make this paleo by subbing full fat coconut milk for the whole milk
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup sweetener of choice, I prefer honey or honey granules


  1. Put all the ingredients in a blender
  2. Blend on high until smooth and creamy
  3. Pour in freezer safe container and freeze for 4-6 hours
  4. Scoop, serve, enjoy!
