4-Ingredient Chocolate Fudge Brownie Ice Cream – ‘Free From’, No-churn, Guilt-Free

In the past few months, we have been on holidays a couple of times, and I use my Vitamix blender so much I could not really imagine being apart from it during our holidays. When Zyliss asked me to try their portable Easy Pull food processor, I was over the moon as it would make the perfect travel substitute.

It is small, so despite the fact our car was fuller than you could imagine for both trips, we managed to squeeze in the tiny food processor. I used it for all sorts of things, from mashed apples to finely chopped veg for salads to homemade burgers to guacamole.

4-Ingredient Chocolate Fudge Brownie Ice Cream – Crevette using the Easy Pull

The recipe I am sharing today is moreish yet guilt-free, versatile and free from egg, wheat, nuts or refined sugar. Oh, and you will only need four ingredients!

This is not the sort of ice cream you would have on a cone. It is a lot more moreish and fudgy than traditional ice cream. My brothers loved it and thought it was more like giant truffles than ice cream.

4-Ingredient Chocolate Fudge Brownie Ice Cream –

You can use the recipe below to make scoops of rich chocolate ice cream (or chocolate dessert), bite-sized chocolate truffles or chunks to add to regular chocolate ice cream.

If you chop the ice cream into 1/2cm cubes and sprinkle it over regular chocolate ice cream, it will add a rich and fudgy touch and will be just like Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream.

The children really enjoyed creating the recipe with me and taking part in the whole process.

4-Ingredient Chocolate Fudge Brownie Ice Cream – Beanie and Crevette Working Together

Although Zyliss clearly state that the Easy Pull must be kept out of the reach of children, I explained to Crevette (7 years 3 months) that it had really sharp blades and put it together myself before I let him do the pulling carefully under supervision.

Beanie (5 years 1 month) was also fully involved in the whole process. She poured, folded, moulded scoops, sprinkled toppings and ate a lot of it!
