Organic chocolate ice cream

ice creamI was very surprised how easy it was to make this.   I already had all the ingredients, and even cleaned out my pantry of chocolate chips and sugar leftover from previous recipes.  Best of all, I didn’t need an ice cream maker!    (Thanks to my friend Yangok for the recipe, and next time I will make a vegan version using dates instead of sugar and hemp or coconut milk)

Ingredients

2 cups organic milk
4 egg yolks
1/2 cup organic cane sugar
chocolate chips

2.  Heat 2 cups milk in sauce pan.

3.  In a separate bowl, mix 4 egg yolks with 1/2 cup sugar.  Add hot milk little by little.
