Commonly Asked Questions

Can I make this cream without using an ice cream maker?

Absolutely! Your ice cream might have a different texture but it should still work. You can use a freeze-and-stir method. We do it by freezing our ice cream mixture for an hour then stirring it until smooth using a fork. We freeze it for another 3 hours, repeat the stirring, freeze again and stir for every hour. Once your entire mixture is frozen you can already enjoy soft-serve style ice cream, or freeze it for 2 more hours for a firmer ice cream that you can scoop out.

What can I use to top my ice cream?

You can go double chocolate with sugar-free chocolate chips or crushed dark chocolate to top your chocolate ice cream. You can also sprinkle it with cinnamon, fruit bits, sugar-free fudge, or hardened chocolate. The intense chocolate flavor of our chocolate ice cream is great to pair with almost anything!
