A super easy recipe for Vitamix chocolate ice cream made in the Vitamix blender. Super fast to make and tastes just like soft serve!
I am having so much fun playing with my new Vitamix! This thing is a marvel machine...it makes soups, shakes, juices, smoothies, grinds up grains, chops, and makes ice cream all in one (easy to clean) container. Amazing. My kids have been anxious for me to whip up some ice cream for them, so I tried out the Vitamix chocolate ice cream recipe in the Vitamix cookbook. It's delicious!
My kids equate it to a Wendy's frosty. I like that I know exactly what's in it (no preservatives or artificial junk) and it's simple and tasty. Better than its store-bought counterparts. This recipe takes less than a few minutes to whip up.
Chocolate Ice Cream (a Vitamix recipe)
1 cup whole milk
½ cup rich chocolate Ovaltine (or Nestle quick powdered mix)½ cup sugar or stevia in the raw
½ cup non-fat dry milk (optional)
1 teaspoon good quality vanilla extract
4 cups of ice cubes (can also use frozen milk cubes for a creamier texture)
Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container, in the order listed, and secure the lid. Select Variable 1. Turn machine on and quickly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High. Use the tamper to press ingredients into the blades. In about 30-60 seconds, the sound of the motor will change and four mounds should form. Stop machine. Do not over mix or melting will occur. Serve immediately.
*Can half this recipe for a smaller portion. This makes 5 cups.

Great recipe! My 7 year old son says this is the best ice cream he has ever had and asks why we can’t buy this kind!
Love it! I’m so glad that he enjoyed it!!
Can I use 2% milk instead of whole milk?
Patty, that should work well, too.
I wonder if this could be made dairy free, with possibly cashew milk or oat milk in place of the whole milk and coconut milk powder as the dry milk powder. I may have to try it!😋
Hi Linda! I have not tried those variations, but please let me know if you do!
When I made it had a good flavor but it was mostly like chunks of ice find chunks but very chunky icy but the machine had stopped and wouldn’t go anymore suggestions?
Lori, what kind of blender are you using? This recipe is for a high powdered blender, specifically the Vitamix. If you are using a Vitamix, using the tamper to push the ice into the blades is key. You should end up with smooth and creamy ice cream.
Turned out very smooth and thick!
It's such a fun recipe to make! It's amazing what you can do with a Vitamix!
Delicious…I used Ovaltine & whole milk ice cubes
Whole milk ice cubes make for the creamiest ice cream! So glad that you enjoyed it Susan!
