  1. Whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form.
  2. Slowly add in the cocoa powder and sweetened condensed milk. Stir until the mixture is a thick and airy cream.
  3. Transfer the mixture into a container and freeze for at least eight hours. 

If you enjoyed this recipe, I would suggest adding different ingredients into the mix. For example, you can add cookie-dough bits or chocolate chips. It’s always fun to add your own personality to the recipe, and it’s a great way to cool off during this month’s heat wave.
