Rocky Road Ice Cream

TIP: You can substitute cauliflower rice for the cauliflower florets in this recipe. If you can’t find chocolate extract you can use vanilla extract, which helps to boost the chocolate flavor of the cocoa powder.

MAKE IT DAIRY-FREE: Use unsweetened oat milk for whole milk, use unsweetened coconut cream for heavy cream, vegan mini chocolate chips for chocolate chips, and vegan mini marshmallows for marshmallows.
