Low Fat Brownie Batter Ice Cream

IMG_1712 copy

I do have a weakness for ice cream. But, the cheese cake variation – I posted here – was not the *healthiest* thing to have in my freezer. So, I came up with this recipe, based on a couple different things I read on the internet. You see, the cheesecake ice cream begins with whipped heavy cream. That’s not so healthy. Then I read this post that details whipping evaporated low fat milk instead. That’s one major fat source down. The next catch is that I want this ice cream to be chocolate. So, I got to thinking about chocolate whipped cream, since that’s all whipped heavy cream is. Then I can across this post that says adding cocoa powder to whipped cream does the trick. So then, I think, we can probably do that to the evaporated milk too. It worked!!


  • 2 cups Evaporated Milk Fat Free
  • 1 cup Milk, Condensed, Sweetened
  • 1 1/2 cups Cocoa
  • 1/2 cup All-purpose Flour
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt*
  • 6 tbsp Butter
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 cup granular Splenda.
  • 1/4 cup Tap Water

How To Make It:

  1. This will make about 8 cups of mixture. It does half well. Serving size is 1/2 cup.
  2. Freeze machine whisk and bowl, along with 2 loaf pans. Make sure evaporated and condensed milk are *Very cold* but not frozen.
  3. Combine Flour, 1/2 cup cocoa, baking powder, salt, melted butter, sugar, Splenda, and water until it makes a brownie batter consistency.

  8. Once solid, I like to scoop it all out and then put it into a tupperware. Try serving it with a drizzle of chocolate syrup. =D

    1. Whoops! I missed a word in there. Its suppose to be “granular Splenda”. The kind that you can swap cup for cup with regular sugar. I hope that clears things up!!
