Most recipes call for an ice cream machine or hand churning the ice cream, but I found this totally genius Chocolate Baileys Ice Cream recipe by David Lebovitz. It involves no machine or hard labour. Just add the ingredients together, blend them, and freeze them. This ice cream needs something added to minimise ice-crystals forming. And that special something happens to be Baileys Irish Cream liqueur and rum. With this naughty adult edge, there’s also a rich chocolate flavour thanks to the real melted chocolate inside and a creamy texture from whole ripe bananas. Definitely not an ice cream for the kids!

NO MACHINE CHOCOLATE BAILEYS ICE CREAM

Makes: enough to serve 2-3 people (4-6 scoops)      Difficulty: Easy

Medium sized microwave safe bowl

55g Dark Chocolate, chopped (around 50% cocoa)
80ml Milk
80ml Baileys Irish Cream liqueur
1 large ripe Banana, peeled and cut into chunks
1 tablespoon (15ml) dark Rum
