Mexican Spiced Chocolate Ice Cream

mexican chocolate ice cream I figure to be as authentic as possible, I have to share my kitchen successes as well as my not-so-successful ventures. This Mexican Chocolate Ice Cream didn't come out quite as I would have liked it. I was combining recipes and something went awry.

But, have no fear, if this flavor sounds delicious to you, I have an alternative option... start with my amazing chocolate ice cream recipe, and then simply add these spices, to your saucepan when cooking the milk and sugar:

1 tsp. ground cloves

1 tsp. ground cardamom

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

That's what I'm going to do next time. :)

In addition, you can bet I'll be trying this vegan alternative, not because I'm vegan (I'm definitely not) but just for the fun of it, and because I'm always on the lookout for ice cream recipes made with sugar alternatives. I've never made ice cream with coconut milk, so I'm intrigued to say the least.

Hopefully this post is simply whetting your appetite for more spiced ice cream goodness. I have three "successful" recipes to share with you that are out-of-this-world, so stay tuned!

A Sunday Treat

double chocolate peanut butter ice cream

Homemade double chocolate peanut butter ice cream with homemade whipped cream? Yes, please.

I used half the sugar and substituted brown rice syrup for the other half (mostly because I ran out of sugar, but this seemed like a good "healthy" alternative sweetener to use, too).
