As excited as I am for cooler days, lots of pumpkin (hello that’s what I did all weekend), I am not sure how I feel about summer ending. What happened to August?? I’ll tell you what though; I am SO excited to do nothing over Labor Day weekend. After a few very hectic weeks, I am taking all 3 days off from all things work. So if you need me, make sure you come with cocktails in hand. You get my drift?

Before we close the door on summer, I’ve got a super fun recipe to share with you today. And you guys, there’s vegetables in it. Zucchini to be exact. AND it’s ice cream. That must make it healthy right? Right?

You guys, Chocolate Zucchini Bread No-Churn Ice Cream!!! Can you even believe it? I wish I could tell you I thought this up on my own, but I saw this flavor from one of my favorite ice cream places EVER. Salt and Straw, which is headquarters in Portland, Oregon but has recently been opening shops in LA as well.

I stalk them on Instagram, because I seriously love their ice cream, and I saw one of the August seasonal flavors was Zucchini bread. They said it was part of their farmers market series. Other flavors included carrot cake batter batter (hello! YUM!) and caramel corn on the cob, not totally sure how I feel about that one. Sadly I didn’t have a chance to try their zucchini bread ice cream, but I decided I would make my own instead.

It’s starts with an airy chocolate zucchini cake and it’s just so perfect. I even had it for dinner last night. Seriously, who wants to make dinner when you’ve been baking all weekend? Not me! I used my dad’s recipe, the same one I use in this zucchini bread recipe, but I cut it in half and added an extra egg white to make it a more cake-like texture.

Once you make the cake then you whip up a quick batch of no-churn ice cream that has only 3 ingredients: heavy cream, powdered sugar and sweetened condensed milk. Oh yeah, and chocolate shavings, so technically four ingredients.

To make the ice cream, prepare a batch of homemade whipped cream (or Cool Whip if you insist) and then fold in a can of sweetened condensed milk. Then you break apart the zucchini bread and fold it into the ice cream batter. I used about 1/3 of the cake for the ice cream, so there was plenty of leftovers to enjoy for the next couple of days.

Since there is never enough chocolat, do yourself a favor. Chop up a chocolate bar and mix that in too. I actually zested the chocolate, but decided it was too fine. So next time, I will thinly chop up the chocolate instead. Mini chocolate chips would work too.

So let’s all pretend we’re eating vegetables (because really we are) and serve yourself an extra scoop.

  12. Pour the can of sweetened condensed into the whipped cream and slowly fold the milk into the whipped cream with a spatula.
  13. Shave the chocolate into the batter and then break apart the zucchini bread directly into the batter. You’ll use about 1/3 of the cake.
  14. Pour the batter in a large bread loaf pan or freezer-safe container. In you want to, you can also layer in pieces of the zucchini bread as you pour the ice cream batter into the container.
  15. Freeze for 4-6 hours before serving.
