Dark Chocolate & Smoked Paprika Ice Cream

| 8/2/2011 3:02:35 PM

We’ve had temperatures in excess of 100 degrees F for the past 30 days and I don’t know about you, but I am so over it. Today, my thermometer reads 109 degrees F as I write this. So since I’m a hostage in the house, I’ve decided to “do time” in the kitchen. Dark Chocolate Paprika Ice Cream 

I saw a cleverly titled article called “Churn After Reading” in the Summer 2011 issue of FreshHome magazine that featured four exotic ice cream recipes. I zeroed in on the Dark Chocolate Ice Cream with Paprika & Agave since a) I love chocolate, b) it doesn’t call for white granulated sugar, and c) it was the only one with commonly available ingredients. (I’ve never heard of or seen pandan leaves or pomegranate molasses anywhere!) As per usual, I altered the recipe slightly, based on my taste buds. This is really easy for an ice cream, super smooth, with a pleasant bite—very worth the 30 minutes or so it will take.


1 cup whole milk

½ cup agave nectar (available at most mainstream supermarkets or Whole Foods-type grocers)

2 eggs

Pomegranate nectar is available at Middle Eastern specialty shops - Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn NY, Reading Terminal Market in Philly, etc. Also known as Pomegranate syrup. Google - many places have available by mailorder. Delicious when used to make Moroccan Salmon with prunes and almonds.
