Ingredients to make dark chocolate raspberry ice cream set out on the counter.
  • Heavy Whipping Cream—This will create your rich and creamy ice cream base.
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk— For a sweet, milky flavor.

  • Dark Chocolate Chips—Adds a deep, almost bitter chocolatey flavor that contrasts the raspberries nicely.

How to Make Dark Chocolate Raspberry Ice cream

Heavy whipping cream beat into stiff peaks in a mixing bowl.
Sweetened condensed milk, raspberries, and chocolate chips are added to the whipped cream in the mixing bowl.

In a large mixing bowl, use your hand mixer to beat the heavy whipping cream into stiff peaks.

Reduce the speed of your mixer to low. Mix in the sweetened condensed milk, raspberries, and chocolate chips until the mixture is smooth and homogenous.

Can I use frozen raspberries in this ice cream?

I would recommend using fresh raspberries! Not only will they give you the most bold flavor, but they will also break apart and become better distributed when you mix them into the ice cream.

Recipe Tips

  • If you want a slightly sweeter ice cream, you can add a teaspoon of sugar to your heavy cream before whipping it.
  • Make sure that your heavy cream and vanilla mixture reaches stiff, free-standing peaks before adding the other ingredients so you get a smooth, creamy texture for your ice cream!
  • You can substitute the chocolate chips for chopped chocolate bars. This adds more texture to the ice cream, but the flavor will be the same.
  • I like to let my ice cream sit overnight when I have time, just to ensure it has a set up as much as possible before we eat it! I find that most ice creams set up in 5-6 hours however, it is a good idea to make this ice cream at least 8 hours in advance for the best results.
  • To store the ice cream, wrap it tightly with plastic wrap or transfer it to an airtight container and store it in the freezer for up to 2 months.

Sounds amazing, we don't have an ice cream maker so I'm always on the look out for no churn recipes. I'll give this a try this summer. Thanks for sharing with us at Handmade Monday.
