Chocolate-Raspberry Ice Cream

This ice cream is seriously delicious, creamy, easy, and attainable!! :)  Just four ingredients- cream, sugar, cocoa powder, and frozen raspberries!  You could probably use fresh raspberries, but I wouldn't, because the frozen are just delicious in this.  Save those fresh ones for eating out of hand or topping yogurt and granola!  ;) 

I did not want a dark chocolate flavor, like the original recipe, so I cut the cocoa powder down to 4 tablespoons instead of five.  The result is a less intense chocolaty taste, and the beautiful color you see in the photos- I love it!  You can taste both the chocolate and raspberry equally well in this.  Now I need to try my hand at White Chocolate Raspberry Ice Cream!

Chocolate-Raspberry Ice Cream
adapted from David Lebovitz via Pennies on a Platter

1 1/2 cups whipping cream
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2/3 cup sugar
2 cups raspberries, frozen (or fresh)

1.  In a large, heavy saucepan, over medium-high heat, whisk together the whipping cream, cocoa powder, and sugar. Whisk frequently and heat until it comes to a full, rolling boil and starts to foam. Remove from the heat and stir in the raspberries. Cover and let stand for 10 minutes.

2.  Transfer the mixture to a food processor or blender and purée. Press through a mesh strainer over a mixing bowl to remove the seeds.

3.  Chill overnight in the fridge and then freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
