I love doing challenges like this week’s Sunday Supper. This weekend we’ve all been tasked with the challenge of creating recipes that include 5 or less ingredients. That doesn’t sound too difficult, right? (That’s what I thought.) For this challenge I decided to rule out gluten free baking because the flour blend alone can include 5 ingredients itself. 5 ingredient recipes are amazing to follow, but area really difficult to devise. It takes some creativity to come up with a balanced, delicious 5 ingredient recipe, so I’m excited to see what everyone has created!

In the spirit of summer coming, I wanted to make an ice cream dessert that is simple and gluten free. I love the combination of dark chocolate and orange, so I used these as my key flavors for this challenge. (In general, I love anything that’s chocolate orange flavored.)

Please check out all the recipes below!

    I cannot wait for warmer weather to dust off my ice cream maker, yes I am one of those odd people that just can’t eat ice cream in the cold. 🙂 This sounds delicious.

    Chocolate and orange ice cream sounds like a winning combination, TR! I am thinking that this might finally be the summer I succumb to temptation and buy an ice cream attachment for my Kenwood Major.

    I’ve yet to try this combination, I’m not the biggest fan of orange flavors. But … chocolate can make anything taste good so looks like I’ll just have to bite the bullet and go for it!
