    8 hours 40 min

    This Italian-inspired ice cream is incredibly rich, creamy and chocolately. It's also lower in fat than the average ice cream, egg-free and requires no ice cream maker.

    • 375ml skimmed milk, divided
    • 2 tablespoons cornflour
    • 50g unsweetened cocoa powder

    1. Place 250ml milk in a bowl, add the cornflour and cocoa and stir to combine.

    Excellent recipe. Nice clear instructions, and the resulting Ice Cream is delicious, rich and fudgy. The initial sauce before freezing would also make a very good pouring sauce. I did use an Ice Cream Maker to start the freezing (the quantity was perfect), and once it was too stiff for the paddle I transferred it to the freezer to finish. Thanks, Tegan!  -  27 Jun 2013
