Vanilla ice cream with chocolate shavings

This recipe makes about 1 litre, just a small about is shown here

A new variation on my non-dairy ice cream recipe.  Start this early in the morning and allow a night for it to set.  Makes about a litre.


  • 100g soya marg (this time, I used Pure brand organic)
  • 300g icing sugar
  • 500ml vanilla flavoured rice milk
  • 6 dessert spoons soya cream
  • about 20g dark chocolate (without milk) grated


  1. As in the other ice cream recipes, melt the marg, then stir in the sugar and cream together (about a third of both at a time).
  2. Stir in all the milk gradually.
  3. Pour this into a suitable tub for freezing. Put it in the freezer and bring it out to stir up every hour for about 6 hours.  (At this point, you’ll wish you had an ice cream making machine, but it’ll be worth it at the end!)
  4. On the last stir, grate the chocolate and fold it in.  (You may wish to transfer the mixture to a new tub now, this is the last chance to do so.)  Now freeze overnight.
  5. Next morning, it will be ready!  The texture is a little like a sorbet more than the previous ice cream recipe (with chocolate and sugar), so don’t be alarmed.

Be aware this will melt faster than shop-bought ice cream — better eat it up quickly!

  1. Hi,

    LOVE your recipes here! Quick question though, does it have to be rice milk? Would alpro work just as well?

    Thanks 🙂

    • Thanks! Yes, Alpro would work fine, or any other brand. I tend to prefer rice milk as it has less flavour than soya milk, but if you’re getting the vanilla one it makes less difference. Good luck with it!

      • Awesome thanks 😀 didn’t know if it had been a tried and tested failure so figured best to ask rather than spend 8 hours stirring something that is doomed to fail ha!
