Fudge Chocolate Ice Cream

Fudgiest Chocolate Ice Cream

Extraordinarily fudgy ice cream that’s gooey, intensely chocolaty, and date sweetened (surprise!). Inspired by Coop’s MicroCreamery’s OMFG Chocolate Ice Cream (named one of Boston’s best pints!), my riff tastes so similar Mark said if I had put it in a Coop’s tub in his freezer, he wouldn’t have known the difference.

Green Tea Matcha Ice Cream

Refreshingly bittersweet ice cream. Pure matcha, cool and melty. My instagram blew up while I was asleep. I guess people are ready for ice cream.

But she’s right. Thanks for the inspiration …

Easy to make, no frills, with just the right amount of heat. This isn’t a new recipe, but I wanted to revamp my spiced cauliflower cold noodles post with one that focused just …
