How About Some Chocolate Ice Cream with a Bit of Trail Mix
While I was down in the basement working out, I heard my youngest daughter upstairs in the kitchen preparing something. My daughter has cerebral palsy and uses a walker to get around so I could hear the wheels rolling back and forth as she pulled ingredients out of the refrigerator and prepped them to make this chocolate trail mix ice cream. Basically she made a chocolate ice cream with the addition of trail mix consisting of M&M’s, assorted nuts and craisins. I couldn’t have been prouder.
What makes this ice cream so easy to prepare is you don’t need to combine the main ingredients over heat before chilling like you do with egg based ice cream or gelato. Just mix everything in a bowl, set in the refrigerator a while and prepare in an ice cream machine. The addition of the trail mix comes in the last 5 minutes of freezing in the ice cream maker. For the record, I didn’t serve the ice cream with trail mix. It’s just for the photo.
