A 5-ingredient recipe for homemade chocolate ice-cream in an ice-cream maker. Quick and easy to make, I wouldn’t think of using any other recipe, it works every time!


  • 1 1/2 cups full cream milk
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 3 cups cream
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla essence


  • Combine the sugar and the full cream milk and stir to allow the sugar to dissolve a little
  • Sieve the cocoa powder into the milk and sugar mixture and mix through
  • Add the cream and vanilla essence and mix to combine
  • Add the mixture to your pre-chilled ice-cream maker bowl and churn for an hour or until thick and creamy.
  • Once ready, transfer the ice-cream to a pre-chilled loaf tin (or any container really!) and place in the freezer to harden for 2-3 hours.
