Homemade icecream

This is something that I have recently come across with on the internet. These chocolate coated kiwis would be a good substitute for packaged ice-creams and chocolates that are high in sugar and have many types of preservatives and artificial ingredients.

If you would like to make your own chocolate sauce, here are a few recipes for you:

Homemade Chocolate Sauce Recipe 1:


Sugar - 3/4 of a cup
Flour - 1 1/2 tablespoons
(Unsweetened) cocoa powder - 1/2 cup high-quality
Milk - 1 1/4 cups 
Butter - 2 tablespoons
Vanilla - 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (or to taste)
Salt - tiny pinch

Mix the sugar, flour and the cocoa powder in a bowl until there is no chunks. In a pot, melt your butter in with milk and vanilla essence on medium heat. When the butter melts, start mixing your dry ingredients that you mixed together in a bowl slowly. Add a little at a time and whisk them until there is no lumpy bits. Put it on medium heat once again and stir until it starts boiling. Once bubbles come up, turn the heat down to low and simmer until it the mixture thickens. It only needs about 6 minutes of simmering. Add a little pinch of salt to bring out the chocolate flavour better and then the sauce is ready.

Homemade Chocolate Sauce Recipe 2:


Milk - 150ml (2/3 of a cup)
Cocoa powder - 220g (2 cups)
Butter - 160g (3/4 of a cup)
Water - 230ml (1 cup)
Flour - 30g (1/4 of a cup)
Sugar -120g (1/2 of a cup) - if possible use powdered sugar

Mix the cocoa powder with the butter and using a blender, make a fine paste. Heat up your water with the cocoa powder and butter paste in a pot and once hot (not boiled), take it off the stove. Add your milk, sugar and flour into the hot mixture and then mix them well until there is no lump. (If you would like to use it as chocolate, then pour it in some containers and freeze it for at least 5-6 hours).

Enjoy something sweet today!
