This rich keto chocolate ice cream ice cream is for serious chocolate lovers only. Rich and creamy, it's called Death By Chocolate Ice Cream with good reason! No wimpy chocolate flavor here, my friends.
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the cream, ½ cup of the almond milk, cocoa powder and sweeteners. Whisk together until well combined and stir until mixture reaches 160F on an instant read thermometer.
Whisk the egg yolks in a medium bowl. Slowly add 1 cup of the hot cream mixture, whisking continuously to temper the yolks. Slowly add the tempered yolks back into the saucepan, whisking continuously. Cook and stir until mixture reaches 165F on an instant read thermometer and is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
Remove from heat and add the chopped chocolate. Let sit 5 minutes and then whisk until smooth.
Pour mixture into bowl set over ice bath and let cool 10 minutes. Then wrap tightly in plastic and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
Before churning, whisk in the remaining ¼ cup of almond milk milk, the vodka, if using, the vanilla extract, and the salt (the mixture will be VERY thick until these ingredients are whisked in).
Pour the mixture into the canister of an ice cream maker and churn according to manufacturer's directions.
Once churned, transfer to an airtight container and freeze another few hours until firm.
