Double Chocolate Coconut Stracciatella

Here’s a short and sweet post for you all on a busy Tuesday night…

It’s springtime and that means it’s definitely time to bust out your ice cream maker. Or ice cream makers (plural). The electric ones, the hand-crank ones, even the ziploc bags filled with ice that you shake for a couple hours (or have a classroom filled with children shake and throw around the room to their utter delight). Whatever your preferred method of ice cream-making is, please heed this advice, and do it. I was inspired by Double Chocolate Straccieatella with a coconut milk base (you can find the incredible recipe here), and it lived up to, and perhaps even exceeded, my expectations. Rich and creamy, very chocolatey, lick your bowl till the bitter end, kind of ice cream. I’m leaving my ice cream maker’s freezer bowl where it belongs (in the freezer) permanently from now on. Ice cream all the time, I say!

      hahahahaha Jessi! It’s already all gone! I’m sorry! But I’ll make more or definitely a different kind soon – Ice Cream Always, as Becky wrote above. Maybe we can have a TTS ice cream party?

    Oh Tessa, this looks too good to be true. I would like to help make a TTS ice cream party happen in any way I can.

      I love that you 3 are commenting on my blog 🙂 You make me happy. Maybe Bob’s end of the year party can include ice cream? I’m sure that’s how I will want to spend finals – making many many batches of ice cream…

    I’m so glad you enjoyed it! Looks great, and now I want to make a whole new batch, too!
