If you are looking for old fashioned dairy free chocolate ice cream, you will love this one!  This is a recipe from my grandmother’s first cook book from high school when she was in home economics class, she used this book all through her life.  I have tweaked it a little to make it dairy free but it is a traditional way of making ice cream.”



  • 2 cups rice milk scalded
  • 1 tablespoon brown rice flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 egg slightly beaten
  • 1 quart, or 64 ounces rice milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla


1.  Scald the 2 cups of rice milk in a pan.

2.  Mix flour, sugar, cocoa powder and salt in another pan.  Mix egg into flour mixture and then gradually add the scalded milk.  Cook over hot water in double boiler for 15 to 20 minutes.  Stir constantly at first.

3.  Remove from heat and allow to cool.  Add the quart of rice milk and vanilla.  Refrigerate for 24 hours or until completely chilled.

4.  Add to an automatic ice cream maker and freeze according to it’s directions.


Chef Notes:

*Adding the scalded milk is very important, it tempers the egg so that it does not cook and become lumpy.  If this does happen you can strain the mixture before refrigerating it.  If you want to make it the traditional way just swap out half and half for the rice milk and milk for the scalded milk.
