Chocolate Thrill Ice Cream & Flirty Apron

Before I begin, I extend my appreciation to those of you commenting on my last post with such warm and cheerful congratulations. It is touching to have so many well wishes and positive energy sent my way, and I thank you for sharing your kindness.

Now, on to some food business! When I posted the Vegveeta Dip, I did promise to also post the Chocolate Thrill Ice Cream. Here it is folks! Now, all of you in my sweet-toothed club also have a new recipe to dig into!

Here's a fun apron photo that I want to show you. I recently won a contest through the Foodie Blogroll. What a treat... and a surprise! I was able to pick my fave style from Flirty Apron (they have such cute styles, and some cheeky men's aprons - gotta' love "I turn grills on")! I chose this "Blue Chocolate" style, and absolutely adore it. It's fun and bright and cheerful... and yes, a little flirty. ;)

Now, go get your coconut milk, chocolate, and the rest of your ingredients ready for your ice cream maker... and enjoy some smoooooth chocolatey homemade ice cream!

Adorable apron!
I recently tried so delicious coconut milk line of ice cream, thanks to your review... pretending I didn't notice the price, I found it unusually light yet very rich and creamy... definitely a winner! I would love to try this recipe as well- except I'm more of a vanilla/other flavor ice cream person, how strange am I!?
Good luck on your happy, healthful pregnancy... hmm, will it be another girl or will your daughters have a new baby brother? :-)

The first recipe isn't vegan, but the last two are. :)

I made this yesterday. Smoooooooooth, creamy and CHOCOLATEY! First out of the machine it was light soft,fluffy & coconuty which was divine. Not too sickly sweet which made for eating in excess. Next day it was a little harder but still scoopable (after a few minutes on the counter to thaw) - coconut flavor was less pronounced and it was more chocolatey. Still amazing. I will never buy regular ice-cream again. I hope there are other flavor options to follow?

Dreena said...

anonymous, that's wonderful! I'm really pleased that you enjoyed it and found it chocolately without too much coconut flavor. I am playing with other flavors, for sure!! :) Thanks for the feedback.

Hi, this chocolate icecream is my very favorite chocolate icecream recipe! I used it recently in an icecream cake and I was going to put the link to the recipe (I used it in an icecream cake I made) but it seems it's missing on your recipe blog?? Luckily I have it written down for myself, but if you ever put it up again I'd love to add that link!

Dreena said...

Hi zerbert, that's wonderful to hear, thank you! You know, I actually pulled it b/c I revised the recipe and made it better - creamier, easier to scoop after freezing, just overall a more luscious base and also a little easier to make. So, if I repost it, I'll do so with the revisions. I always blog about a new recipe that I post, so you'll be sure to find out if/when I do put the new revision back up! Thanks again, really lovely to read. :)
