Chocolate Pomegranate Ice Cream

Morsels of Life - Chocolate Pomegranate Ice Cream - Deliciously tart pomegranate combined with luxurious dark chocolate for one exquisite chocolate pomegranate ice cream.

With all this sweltering weather, I thought I'd make some ice cream. Because ice cream can solve all your problems. Sometimes. I remembered I had some pomegranate in the freezer, and everything's better with chocolate, and so, we have chocolate pomegranate ice cream! It's a super easy recipe with just four ingredients. The only slightly complicated part was melting the chocolate since I prefer the smaller pieces of chocolate you can get if you add a stream of chocolate to the ice cream as it's churning instead of chocolate chips or chunks. Although, next time, I'm thinking chocolate shavings. I just think it's easier to eat when you don't have to chew through frozen chunks and then get chocolate stuck all on your teeth.

What's your preference for ice creams with chocolate - chips, chunks, shavings, or something else?

    1. The tanginess of the pomegranate really plays well with the chocolate. :) (But then, what doesn't play well with chocolate? :P)

    1. It looks delicious, doesn't it? You can also substitute cream for the half and half, and then dissolve the sugar into the cream, whip the cream, fold in the other ingredients, and pour into a container and freeze if you don't have an ice cream maker. :)

    1. The sweet and tart really went well together! I'm thinking I'll have to freeze some pomegranate arils this fall and make this ice cream again. :)
