My favorite ice cream

Ice cream is one of my favorite things...unfortunately, there are very, very few stores that offer somewhat healthy ice creams.  The best solution is, of course, to make your own! DIY! <--one of my favorite acronyms.

This recipe is not only loaded with healthy fats, but it's also chocolate flavored! What could be better than that? 
Gently modified from Sally Fallon's Nourishing Traditions

3 egg yolks from pastured hens
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1 TBS homemade vanilla extract (there is a recipe in one of my previous posts)
1 TBS corn starch
3 cups cream from pastured cows (raw if possible, but NOT ultrapasteurized)
1/4 cup cocoa powder

In medium bowl, beat egg yolks together until smooth.  Blend in next four ingredients.  Once blended, remove 1/2 cup of the mixture and place in a saucepan over low heat.  Add the cocoa powder and whisk until completely incorporated.  Place cocoa mixture back into original bowl and combine.

Next, follow the instructions on your ice cream maker and within no time you'll be eating a decadent, chocolate-y treat!
