Dairy-free Ginger Chocolate Ice Cream
Lick It! Creamy Dreamy Vegan Ice Creams Your Mouth Will Love, I have a Chocolate Ice Cream and I have a Ginger Ice Cream . . . so with a little tweaking, I combined them into a cold, creamy, chocolaty treat with a spicy ginger burn. And it's just as addicting as those candies, let me tell you. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
Ginger-Chocolate Ice Cream
We wanted a really strong ginger taste, but if you want it to be a little more subtle, use the lesser amount of ginger.
1 1/3 cups nondairy milk
1/3-1/2 cup peeled and grated ginger (3 – 4 ounce piece)
1 ounces dark unsweetened baking chocolate
1 can full-fat coconut milk
2/3 cup sugar or agave nectar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Place nondairy milk in a small saucepan. Add the grated ginger, squeezing it a bit to release the juice. Cover and heat until just beginning to boil. Cover and steep 30 minutes. Pour through a fine sieve into a heatproof bowl, pressing all the liquid out of the grated ginger. Return the strained milk mixture to the saucepan. Add the baking chocolate and heat enough to melt the chocolate. Let sit. Pour the remaining ingredients into the heatproof bowl. Wisk in the heated chocolate/milk mixture. Chill in the refrigerator for three hours or until very cold. Freeze in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s directions.
