Chocolate Raspberry Ice Cream

Thanks to a cousin of mine I recently discovered Diet Coke with Raspberry from Sonic.  The heavens opened and raspberry diet coke rained down from the sky along with gumdrops and lollipops and Mike-n-Ikes and the streets were paved with Oreos.  (My blood sugar was kinda low so I might be slightly mistaken about this part, but that's basically what happened.)

Really, it was a great drink. 

I prefer not to drink my calories (obvs. so I can partake in chocolate-dipped goodness).  So finding a delicious diet drink is always a treat.

Some of my favorites are, Chick-fil-A's diet lemonade, Sonic's diet  Dr. Pepper with cherry, and Sonic's diet Cherry limeade with raspberry.

I kinda like raspberries.

Speaking of raspberries-

This chocolate raspberry ice cream is like eating frozen fudge.  In no frame of mind can I see how that could ever be a bad thing.

The bad news, is it's not calorie free.

{I know you're shocked.}

The good news is... we had a diet drink today.  ;)  

What's your favorite diet drink?

Chocolate Raspberry Ice Cream
Recipe adapted from Annies Eats
-1 1/2 cups heavy cream
-5 Tbsp unsweetened Dutch Process cocoa powder
-1 cup sugar

Whisk cream, cocoa powder, and sugar together in saucepan. Heat, whisking constantly, until it reaches a full rolling boil.  Take off of heat and add raspberries. Cover and allow to stand 10 minutes.

Put mixture in a blender and puree.  Strain mixture to remove seeds.

Chill overnight then freeze in ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions.

Move to an airtight container and freeze several hours before serving.

Pin It!
