Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey Ice Cream Recipe


  • 3/4 cup Dark Chocolate Chunks
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 2 cups Heavy Cream or Whipping Cream
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • Walnuts (optional)
  • 2 Bananas, over ripe
  • Juice of 1 Lemon


  1. Place the chocolate chunks in a bowl, cover and refrigerate.
  2. Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more.
  4. Pour in the cream and milk, and whisk to blend. Add the vanilla and whisk to blend again.
  5. Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze following the manufacturer’s directions.
  6. Mash the bananas in a bowl, add the lemon juice, and whisk until smooth.
  7. After the ice cream stiffens (about 2 minutes before it is done), add the banana mixture, chocolate chunks, and walnuts, then continue freezing until done.

Makes 1 quart
