[RECIPE] Easy 5 Ingredient Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream

Since moving to our new apartment, I’ve been loving having the space to store all of my kitchen appliances in easy to get to places, in turn getting me to use them more.  In our last place they were all jammed-in on a big wire rack, so I vowed in the new place I’d keep…
