Last year on Valentines Day, Martin bought me an ice cream machine …triple bonus points, so it seems fitting to post an ice cream recipe today of all days.
The poor thing has pretty been on the go ever since, the ice cream machine that is!
We are now at the stage where we should probably buy a new one, we’ve had to parcel tape the sides up to stop that weird blue liquid from flowing out, it’s like the mad max of ice-cream machines and after writing this it has all become clear… it should probably go!
If you don’t have an icecream machine don’t panic you can still make it, but it just takes a little longer following the freeze and blend method.
So yes! You lovely people, it is possible to make super sexy and oh-so-creamy chocolate ice-cream, vegan style!
Top with my quick chocolate sauce and crushed nuts because I know for sure this stuff is going to rock your flipping socks off!
