From February 2007 Prevention. Here's a great way to satisfy a serious chocolate craving without lots of fat or calories. Next time I'll double the recipe! The sauce is a great way to use up leftover coffee, too. Original directions suggest freezing mixture in an 8x8 pan until nearly frozen, then whirring through a food processor. I used my Cuisinart ice cream maker with great results. Superfine sugar is located on the baking aisle, in my neck of the woods it's made by Imperial and comes in a small pourable canister that also says "quick-dissolving."

Ingredients Nutrition

  • Ice Milk

  • 34 cup superfine sugar
  • 13 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 cups cold 1% low-fat milk

  • 13 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 34 cup strong brewed coffee or 34 cup espresso
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Ice milk: In a large bowl, whisk together sugar and cocoa. Slowly whisk in milk and vanilla until dry ingredients are dissolved and no lumps remain. Freeze in ice cream maker according to manufacturer's directions. Pour into a resealable container. Freeze 2 to 3 hours or until very firm.

I recently made some macaroons that called for superfine sugar, but couldn't find any at the store. I found a suggestion to give regular granulated sugar a whir in the blender to get a superfine texture. It worked perfectly! Just remember to give the contents a minute to settle before removing the lid or you will get a noseful of sugar dust. I can't wait to try this recipe with soymilk! I'll be back soon to give it some stars!

Very good. Tasted so much like fudgesicles it was unbelievable. Hubby and Carly enjoyed theirs with the sauce but I preferred it without. Either way, the three of us enjoyed it very much. TFS, made for Beverage Tag.

This dessert has a deep and wonderful chocolate flavor! I don't miss the cream at all. This will become a regular in our home from now on. I used the ice cream maker attachment for my Kitchenaid mixer so it was very easy as well.
