Serves: 2 Prep: 15 minutes


  • Add fresh mint leaves and trickle some olive oil over the finished ice cream! Absolutely delicious!


  • 6 eggs (whip the whites separately)
  • 500 g mascarpone
  • 0,5 l whipped cream
  • 300 g sugar + a pinch of salt
  • 500 g baking /dark chocolate / use a knife to cut into bits
  • organic lemon zest (optional)


  1. Beat the egg yolks with sugar until they turn quite light yellow. Don’t hold back.
  2. Add to it the mascarpone, then slowly whisk in the cream, egg whites, and finally add the chocolate bits and lemon zest.
  3. It's already yummy, before you even freeze it :)
  4. If you’re using a simple freezer, no ice cream maker, make sure you go in and give it a good stir every now and then to stop the cream from crystalizing - every ice cream maker’s worst nightmare ;)
  5. And don’t be afraid of sugar and eggs, they help make everything creamy :)
