This is a wonderful treat. Very deep, intense chocolate flavor. I added 1/4 tsp of instant espresso powder and 1/4 tsp of ground cayenne pepper to jazz it up! It came out great and was very easy. I stirred every hour and a half or so and it came out smooth, creamy, and delicious.
I am a chocolate snob and this has my five-star seal of approval. Of note, if you are like me and appreciate the depth of dark chocolate, I recommend using dark chocolate cocoa powder. But, I was such a skeptic that cocoa powder and these simple ingredients could make such a delicious treat and wow, were my husband's and my tastebuds more than exhilirated. Of course you have to keep in mind that this is not ice cream, so it will not have the same thick, creamy texture, so if that is what you're looking for than this is not the recipe for you. However, if you want a lighter, yet potently chocolatey dessert that will kick any female chocolate craving- this is a grand slam!!! Also of note, I have a very high-quality blender/food emulsifier that made this instantly by using ice cubes instead of water and it eliminated the long 4.5 hr freeze time. Thank you for this recipe.
Oh. My. Goodness. I am speechless. Made it in my Cuisinart, added a couple teaspoons of instant coffee, and poured in a couple tablespoons of heavy cream as it started to blend. Next time I will sub some of the water with espresso instead of cheating with instant coffee. (Later Note: I tried this and it wasn't as good as just adding instant coffee! It changed the texture) This was a perfect end to homemade pasta and meatballs...and I tried it with coconut ice cream, too. Wow. Thank you for sharing.
This was alright, the chocolate was bitter, but that is expected with cocoa. Overall it wasn't terrible but I don't think we will be making it again. I wouldn't say its quite creamy, but I'm sure people who cannot have dairy would enjoy this!
Excellent - I made for my daughter who is dairy-free. Enjoyed by the whole family!
I'm in the process of making this right now and I must say... so far it seems fantastic. I followed the recipe to the letter with the exception of adding a healthy dose of cinnamon and two dashes of finely ground cayenne pepper (as I am WAY into that flavor profile). I was worried that it would be too thin but the mixture is actually surprisingly thick given it's essentially just cocoa powder and water. It's chilling right now and I can not wait to see how it freezes. At this stage I've rated it 4 stars as it's not yet finished, but I have no doubt that I will be updating to five once it's done!
What a chocolatey taste. Everyone thought it was made with pure dark chocolate. i used an ice cream machine for this. Thanks for a great GF and LF recipe
I followed it exactly and was left with a solid block of chocolate flavoured ice. It was also very bitter and way too dark.
Wow, this is what heaven tastes like. The best sorbet EVER! Thanks so much for sharing this!
What a simple, sinful recipe!! It couldn't be any easier. When I first tasted it I thought it might need more sugar, but after a few spoonfuls it hit me and it's fine as is. Thanx!!
