Do you like the sound of creamy chocolate laden ice cream? Keep this Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream in the freezer wrapped and ready for eating anytime. I also use it for amazing ice cream sandwiches- recipe coming.
This ice cream is quite incredible. It’s creamy and chocolate laden.
There are all kinds of vegan ice cream but this is my version.
I am not sure the pictures do it justice because it looks a little icy. I can tell you that when it sits for several minutes it starts to soften and all those air bubbles you can see make it fluffy and creamy.
Light and fluffy chocolate ice cream made with a secret ingredient
I’ve worked out a novel way to lighten this ice cream. I don’t have an ice cream machine so instead of churning it I have added a vegan meringue mixture to lighten it up. It’s pretty brilliant.
To make Ice Cream successful it needs to have some air added to it to make it light. That’s where the chickpea meringue comes in.
The result is a light fluffy mousse. You can even eat the creamy chocolate base without freezing it just like rich amazing mousse. Put it into small ramekins to serve or just put into a large bowl and chill.
I have set my Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream in a date loaf round tube tin because I like to make ice cream sandwiches out of mine. I’ve cut it into rounds and then wrapped them individually which gives them that wrinkled look. You can make your ice cream in standard square loaf tin if you like and cut as needed. Get creative with any shapes including hearts or squares.
You won’t taste the coconut, you won’t taste the chickpea all you will taste is the chocolate.
Here’s the video:
- 500 ml coconut cream I use Kara a lightly thickened stabilised coconut bcream
- 20 gm caster sugar
- 60 gm cocoa powder dark rich powder or raw cacao if you like the flavour
- 150 gm dark chocolate I use dairy free vegan chocolate
- 100 ml chickpea water
- 100 gm cater sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Chilling the chickpea water will help it produce a thicker meringue a little quicker.
When beating don't give up. it will take several minutes before it starts to get very thick and white.
This ice cream is perfect when paired with the Vegan Peanut cookies. These cookies are nice and crumbly when paired with the ice cream as a sandwich
