Chocolate EVOO Ice Cream!

Posted by Anthony Kasandrinos on

Summer means ICE CREAM! 

It’s no secret that we love experimenting with olive oil in the kitchen and we are always excited to find new ways to incorporate it to the most unusual recipes, which end up being your absolute favourites. This chocolate-olive oil ice-cream tastes like balmy summer nights at a Greek beach. We cut down on the heavy cream and use olive oil and more milk instead, so we are getting our fats from the healthier source available. Dig in!
