For making lactose free ice cream, you need the following ingredients:
Soy milk or rice milk – 4 cups; Arrowroot or corn flour – 2 tablespoons; Unsweetened cocoa powder – ½ cup; Sugar – ¾ cup; Vanilla extract – 1 tablespoon; Dairy-free chocolate – ½ cup
Mix the arrowroot with ¼ cup of cold milk gently, so that there are no lumps remaining.
Pour the remaining milk in a saucepan and put it on medium heat to boil.
To the milk, add cocoa powder and sugar. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat. Keep stirring continuously so that the sugar dissolves completely.
To this, now add the arrowroot (or corn flour) mixture and keep stirring it constantly for about 5 minutes. You will see the mixture gradually thickening and starting to bubble.
Remove from heat immediately. Do not let the mixture boil.
Add vanilla to this now.
Pour this in a bowl and then refrigerate it to chill it down.
Freeze it in an ice cream maker. You can garnish this with chocolate chips at this time and let the entire thing set.
Your dairy-free ice cream is now ready. Just scoop it out from the freezer and let yourself loose in the immense pleasure that it brings to you.
