Homemade Cocoa (chocolate) Ice Cream

Homemade Ice Cream

I have tried MANY Homemade Ice Cream recipes over the years… and each and every time I am left disappointed. Either to much vanilla… not enough chocolate… or just a weird unpleasant consistency. Well, this weekend, I found a winner, well worth sharing.

I wanted some ice cream for Reed’s 2nd birthday… so I decided to try THIS ONE out. It was a HUGE HIT and I loved it. I btw am not a huge ice cream fan, so for me to like it, means its really good :)

Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream

Homemade Cocoa (chocolate) Ice Cream


  • 1 C honey granules (or sugar)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 cup cocoa
  • 1 1/2 C whole milk
  • 1 1/2 C cream
  • 1/2 Tbsp vanilla


  1. The instructions for this are about as easy as it gets. Take ALL the above ingredients... put them into your NINJA or blender. Mix it all up til it creates a smooth consistency...
  2. Once blended all together, pour in the ingredients into your ice cream maker. Now a heads up... our ice cream maker was not large enough to fit all of the above mixture. So what I did was just poured in what I could into the machine, then I put the remaining mixture into a mason jar in my refrigerator. This weekend we celebrated Reed's 2nd birthday... so we enjoyed the ice cream on saturday... then on sunday, we made up the 2nd batch. Easy peasy! I just poured what was in the fridge, into the ice cream maker the next day and made a 2nd batch.
  3. Thats it! :)

To view the original recipe, CLICK HERE. She gives directions on how to make this without an ice cream machine. However, I found my way works great for those with a machine… requires a lot less steps than her directions.


Enjoy! :) & for viewing pleasure, baby Reed enjoying his ice cream yesterday.

  1. This sounds yummy. However, can you share what kind of ice cream maker you have and how you like it. I have been looking for one but unsure. I want to make frozen yogurt as well. Thanks.

    1. Hey Susan, this is the one I have: – I got it years ago for free tho as a review. I think its normally a pretty expensive item. It is discontinued now tho.. However, I still use mine and it works great! There are lots of affordable options on amazing or even at walmart :) This one is super silent tho and makes the ice cream really well and fast.

  2. Looks wonderful! So am I correct in understanding that the eggs are then essentially eaten raw? I’ve never made ice cream with an ice cream maker so I don’t really know much about it.

    1. You know I didnt even think about that kelley :) – but yes, I suppose you are eating it raw. Although its freezing the eggs, so I dunno if thats good or bad?? it sure tasted good ;-) I had no idea ice cream recipes could even call for egg, but it works for this recipe no doubt, taste amazing!
