Chocolate, Raisin & Amaretto Ice Cream

Prep time 5 mins, cook time 5 hrs

Serves 4-6

Vegan, Suitable for Freezing, Egg-Free, Gluten-Free, Wheat-Free, Dairy-Free

The combination of dark chocolate and almond flavoured Amaretto in the ice-cream should make for a sweet end to the evening. The ice-cream can be made the day before and frozen until required.

Preparation Notes

Cooking time includes 4-5 hours freezing time.


  • 50g raisins
  • 1½ tbsp Amaretto
  • 1½ tbsp maple syrup
  • 450ml soya milk
  • 100ml sunflower oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 100g dairy-free dark chocolate coarsely grated


  1. Place the raisins in a small bowl and pour over the Amaretto. Leave to soak until most of the Amaretto has been absorbed.
  2. Pour 300ml/10fl oz of the soya milk into ice-cube trays and place in the freezer or freezer compartment of your refrigerator for about 4-5 hours or until frozen solid.
  3. Put the remaining soya milk and the remaining ingredients except the grated chocolate into a blender. Add the now-frozen soya milk cubes and blend until completely smooth. Stir in the coarsely grated chocolate.
  4. The ice-cream can be served immediately, or returned to the freezer if a firmer ice-cream is desired. Remember to allow the ice-cream to defrost for about 40 minutes, or until the preferred consistency is achieved, before serving.
