To make this recipe, it will take you...
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
This recipe creates 8 servings. Each serving size is 2 scoops.
- 2 cups of Heavy Whipping Cream
- 1/2 Cup Powdered Erythritol
- 3 tbsp of Philosophie Cacao Magic or your favourite Dark Cacao Powder
- 4 Egg Yolks
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 1 tbsp of Lee's Ghee or any ghee or butter you have on hand
- 1tbsp of Coconut Oil
- 1tbsp of Espresso Powder
- 1/4 cup of Cocopolo Dark Chocolate tabs (coming soon to our store!)
- Optional - a pinch of sea salt or fleur de sel
If you are diabetic and have issues with erythritol, you may want to try using other substitutes like Monkfruit or Stevia sweeteners.
- Combine the four egg yolks and vanilla and set aside
- Place a medium pot over medium low heat
- Pour in the heavy cream and the erythritol
- Mix until well dissolved
- Add the remaining ingredients except the yolks and vanilla
- Whisk ingredients until well combined and all the ghee and coconut oil has melted
- Turn up the heat to medium/high and continue to whisk until mixture becomes thick and you can coat a wooden spoon. See video for example.
- Remove from heat and continue to whisk and let cool.
- Continue to whisk while cooling otherwise a skin may form.
- Once cooled, using a large bowl, slowly pour mixture into the yolk/vanilla mixture. Pour a little at a time and whisk while pouring. Once all is added, continue to whisk until a froth forms on the top. (Oscar whisked by hand but feel free to use an electric mixer)
- Add the chocolate chunks and whisk one more time
- Pour entire mixture into an air tight container and place in the freezer
- Freeze for about 5 hours. However, stir mixture every hour.
- After 5 hours it should be ready. If you freeze overnight you should leave ice cream out of the freezer for a bit in order to soften so you can scoop out the ice cream.
