The perfect addition to any dairy meal.

Yields: 1 quart


  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 chocolate bar, room temperature, shaved into chocolate shavings (using a vegetable peeler)
  • ice cream maker


  1. Make sure all of your ingredients are cold (except the chocolate bar), if you want the ice cream to set to serving consistency.
  2. Add milk, cream, cinnamon, sugar, and vanilla into your ice cream maker.
  3. When the ice cream begins to firm up, add the shaved chocolate, so it distributes evenly.
  4. Wait until the ice cream maker is done, put the ice cream in a container, and return it to your freezer until it is hard enough – which, depending on your ice cream maker, should be approximately 2-4 hours (minimum).


For non-dairy ice cream, substitute 4 cups soy milk to replace the milk and cream, or 4 cups sweetened non-dairy creamer and reduce the sugar to ½ cup.
