Basil Chocolate Chip Ice Cream (dairy-free)

Basil Chocolate Chip ice cream (dairy-free)

I’m sharing this recipe because there’s a chance that one day someone who’s adventurous (crazy?) like me, who loves to throw ingredients normally expected in savoury dishes into sweet desserts, just might love this little ice cream recipe as much as I do. Chocolate + fresh basil + coconut milk + sweetener = the best […]
