  1. I tried this recipe and it was great! Thank’s for sharing it! Very refreshing with a mild taste of chocolate. I used egg yolks instead of Lecithin. I also made a milk free version that turned out well. Recipe for 0,75 l:
    – Chocolate oat milk (“Oatly chokladdryck” in Swedish which contains 1.5% fat, 3.5% sucrose and 1% cocoa powder): 500g
    – Sunflower oil: 20g
    – Neutral cocoanut oil ( from “Kung Markatta”): 50g
    – Sucrose: 90g
    – Dextrose: 30g
    – Egg yolks: 36g (2pcs)
    – Glucose syrup: 15g
    – Stabilizer: 1.5g (LBG 1g and Guar gum 0.5g)
    For a vegan version, replace the egg yolks with Lecithin. Before I processed it in the ice cream machine, I emulsified the mix thoroughly. Softness and texture became really great. The taste was appreciated by my family although there is a very slight oat taste. When I do it next time, I might add either some cocoa powder or a little bit of instant coffee to see if it is possible to suppress the oat taste completely. Alternatively I will mix in some chocolate syrup.

  2. Very interesting recipe! How did you define Pucko in the database for ingredients? Ended up in a very strange result for total sugar content when I tried myself. Obviously I have misunderstood something.
