Homemade ice cream is my weakness. Growing up we would make ice cream and it was always my job to help my dad churn it. Of course, we did it by hand because there was no way my dad was going to allow some fancy ice cream maker into his house. I, on the other hand, praise the fancy ice cream maker. I have just about zero time to be hand churning ice cream SOOOOOOO I allow the machine to do it for me. Plus, let’s be honest, it’s about a million times easier. As you all know I’m all about easy. And delicious. Basically, I’m all about easy AND delicious together.

I also love fruit in my ice cream so I rocked it by using super FRESH Driscoll’s raspberries. Look at those plump little berries – divine!

If you have never had fresh berry ice cream I BEG you to make this ice cream. The stuff you get in the store just sort of has me going “eh” while the home had me swoooooooning with delight. Plus, the color. You’re sure to win “prettiest ice cream at the party” award if you bring this to your summer potluck.

Wait, do people still go to potlucks? Is that still a thing?

Oh AND AND AND don’t forget about the creamy dark chocolate. That pretty much makes this dessert. I ended up chopping normal sized dark chocolate chips because I used all my mini dark chocolate chips in a late night snack attack. Yeah, that’s right. I sometimes just eat my chocolate chips straight from the bag. Don’t look at me like that. You know you do it too.

To serve this beauty up I just scooped it into a bowl, topped with more chopped chocolate and a few fresh berries. This, my friends, is summer in a bowl.

Raspberry Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

This raspberry chocolate chip ice cream is the perfect addition to your summer menu. Slightly sweet, full of fresh berry flavor and packed with dark chocolate chips. You'll love how easy it is to make your own ice cream!

Yield: 1-1/2 quarts

Prep Time: 45 minutes + cooling time

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 75 minutes + plus cooling time

Ingredients:

For ice cream:

  • 3 cups half and half
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 8 egg yolks
  • 9 ounces sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • Raspberry puree 
  • 1 cup mini dark chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate

For raspberry puree: 

  • 2 cups Driscoll's raspberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Directions:

For ice cream:
Set a medium saucepan over medium heat. Pour in half and half and heavy cream. Simmer the mixture, stirring every so often, until the mixture is warmed. Remove from heat and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl add egg yolks and whisk until smooth. Slowly pour in sugar and whisk until combined.

Add in a small amount of cream mixture to the egg mixture and whisk until combined. Slowly add in more cream until the egg mixture is warmed. Continue whisking in the cream until it's all been added.

Add the mixture back into the saucepan and set over low heat. Stir constantly until the mixture has thickened and reached 175 degrees.

Remove the mixture from the heat and pour into a storage container. Let cool on the counter for 30 minutes, stir in vanilla bean paste, raspberry puree, cover and let cool in the refrigerator overnight.

Pour into an ice cream maker and process according to the manufacturer's directions. Once the mixture reaches soft serve texture stir in dark chocolate chips.

Cover the top of the ice cream and freeze for at least 4 hours before serving.

For raspberry puree:
Add all ingredients to a small saucepan and simmer over medium heat until the berries start to soften. Mash the berries until juicy and soft. Remove from heat, puree in a high-speed blender or food processor, strain through a fine mesh strainer, set aside and let cool. Throw out any pulp or seeds left in the strainer.

Note: Optional - half berries and stir extra berries into the ice cream before freezing.

    Hello summer. These looks delicious and I can’t wait to try it. As far as ice cream goes, I won’t even consider it unless it has chocolate in it!

    I have been saying for years that I am going to try making my own ice cream and I have still never done it! I need to start…this looks so scrumptious! And we go to potlucks (and host them) all summer long! Definitely still a thing here!

    I think I could eat the entire recipe in one sitting. Naughty me. Have a wonderful long weekend, Brandy, hope you can put your feet up and relax with this ice cream. The pink of the raspberry is so soft and pretty. I love it. I have yard work to do and (finally) get my garden planted. Wish me luck!

    Dude. You had me at no-churn and raspberry ice cream. I had not one but two ice cream makers, and yet it always seems like a chore to bust them out. This ice cream sounds perfect!

    Oh my goodness, I love this combination! We make raspberry sorbet and raspberry sherbet a lot during the summer months but I’ve never added chocolate before… this looks so great!

    My husband planted a raspberry bush this year, in hopes that maybe, just maybe they would grow here. He LOVES raspberries, so I am going to make this for him very soon!

    Raspberries and chocolate two of our favorites in my house. Great flavor combo for an ice cream that is for sure!

    I’m totally having photo envy here, Nanny–these are so beautiful! It’s been forever since I made ice cream, and you’ve got me thinking about it again. I’ve never used vanilla bean paste, but I have whole beans in my freezer–any idea how many would equate to a teaspoon of paste???

    Yes, yes and yes! I’m such a sucker for raspberry and dark chocolate together, especially if it’s in ice cream format. The forecast says we’re in for some hot and muggy weather today, so I could totally go for a bowl (or five) of this deliciousness.

    My mom loves chocolate and raspberry together, not to mention she’d be all homemade ice cream! Me personally, I love the chocolate chips added in! Love Driscoll’s Raspberries!
