Equipment

  • ice cream maker
  • airtight container 
ice cream maker
airtight container 

Ingredients
  

  • 1-⅓ cups granulated sugar 
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • cup cacao powder (Sub in cocoa powder if you don't have cacao powder. See product suggestions below.)
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan sea salt 
  • 1-½ cups Whole Milk
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 quarter cup Orange Juice
  • 1 cup Chocolate Chips
  • cup Orange Zest
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tablespoon Orange Oil

Instructions
 

  • If using an ice cream maker, prep your ice cream machine 24-hours before making this recipe. Make sure to add the freezer bowl from your ice cream machine to the freezer at least 4-hours before making this recipe, or even better 24-hours.
  • Add the milk, heavy cream, orange juice, vanilla extract, orange oil to the sugar mixture and combine.
  • Melt the dark chocolate chips in a glass bowl over steamed water or in a microwave until the chocolate is melted. Add in the fresh orange zest and combine.
  • Add the melted chocolate to the prepared ice cream mixture and add everything to a stand mixer and mix on the medium setting or gently hand mix.
  • Let the prepared ice cream mixture sit in the fridge for an hour to firm up before adding it to your ice cream machine.
  • Turn on the ice cream maker, pour the ice cream mixture into the freezer bowl and mix until thickened, about 25-35 minutes. Since we froze the freezer bowl 24-hours prior, the ice cream should have a nice, thick consistency and should be ready to eat.
  • Transfer to a bowl, add some more fresh orange zest, and enjoy!
  • The ice cream will keep in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 6-months. Make ice cream ahead and enjoy this delicious dessert all summer long!

Notes

If using an ice cream machine, prep your ice cream machine 24-hours before making this recipe. Make sure to add the freezer bowl from your ice cream machine to the freezer at least 4-hours before making this recipe, or even better 24-hours. If the freezer bowl only froze for a few hours beforehand, immediately transfer the prepared ice cream to an airtight container or a metal loaf pan, like the one you see in the pictures.
