Some of my favorite summer memories growing up were the times my family would make homemade ice cream. We would get the ice cream started before dinner and then enjoy a delicious homemade dessert afterward. Make this a family tradition of your own!

How to Make Homemade Ice Cream

The wonderful thing about homemade ice cream is that there are endless recipes! If you’re a chocolate lover like me, you’ll want to save this recipe for chocolate ice cream. Whatever ingredients and experiments you try out, the basic principles are the same.

What You’ll Need:

  • 6 cups Milk
  • 3 cans Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 15 TBSP Cocoa Powder
  • Ice
  • Rock Salt


  • Pour the milk and the sweetened condensed milk into the canister and stir together.
  • Add 15 TBSP of cocoa powder to the milk mixture and mix well.
  • Once your ingredients are mixed together, put the dasher into the canister and make sure everything is lined up so it will fit together easily. Put on the lid, put the canister into the ice cream maker, and lock the lid into place.
  • Now you’re ready to add the ice and salt! Add about six cups of ice to the ice cream maker surrounding the canister and then cover with rock salt. Don’t skimp on the salt! Repeat this process until the ice is at the top of the canister.
  • Plug in your machine and let it run for 30 minutes adding more ice and salt as needed. Enjoy!
