Chocolate Three-cream Ice Cream

One of the best things about ice cream is how rich and creamy it is. This recipe, with three different creams, makes a frozen treat that can’t be beat.


  • 1/2 pint heavy cream 
  • 1/2 pint sour cream
  • 6 ounces cream cheese
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 ounces milk chocolate, grated


  1. Melt chocolate over double boiler over low heat. Once it has fully melted, turn off the heat and allow to cool slightly at room temperature.
  2. Beat cream cheese in a mixing bowl until it is soft and smooth, then slowly add the sugar, beating after each addition. Next, beat in the sour cream, chocolate, and heavy cream.
  3. Add the vanilla extract and lemon juice to the cream mixture and beat until thick and smooth.
  4. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours before making ice cream. 
  5. When the mixture has cooled, pour it into a crank freezer or electric ice-cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s directions.
