When I crave ice cream, I usually make my favorite "French" custard base, which results in rich and creamy ice cream. But when I want it fast and without fuss, I go for Philadelphia-style ice cream. This eggless version is a bit lighter, but no less delicious, and it is so simple and fast to put together.

Add the chopped chocolate and whisk gently until completely smooth. Remove from heat. Add the milk and zest, if using, and whisk to combine.
