Ice Cream Making


Some recent writing assignments have had me driving in southern Massachusetts. Today I was in New Bedford and had the loveliest time. It was hot, but there was a nice breeze. Ahhhh. Summertime.

Today was the perfect day to break out the ice cream machine for the first time this season. What's today's flavor? Coconut Kahlua.

Here's the recipe below, if you'd like to give this flavor a try. The measurements are approximate, because I was getting rid of the end of some ingredients and just used what was left.

Coconut Kahlua Ice Cream
INGREDIENTS:

  •  1 cup Half & Half
  • 1 13.5 oz. can coconut milk
  • 1 cup vanilla rice milk
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 - 3 T Kahlua
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
INSTRUCTIONS:
Whisk ingredients together in a medium bowl. Pour into ice cream maker and follow your ice cream maker instructions. During the summer, I keep the ice cream maker in the freezer, so it's always ready to go. It's churning right now, but it's been about 35 minutes.

So as soon as I'm done with this post, I'll be scooping it into a freezer safe container and putting in the freezer for a few hours. If you like your ice cream melty, then enjoy immediately!
 
Happy National Ice Cream Month!

This sounds dangerously good, Lisa! ;o) I don't have an ice cream maker... but have been making simple recipes for sorbet just whizzing up ingredients in the blender and freezing...YUM! Happy Summer Days ((HUGS))

You certainly picked the right time to have the ice cream machine handy! HOT!

Lisa said...

tracy - The sorbet sounds good! I've been doing sorbet too. And last night I froze a fruit smoothie, which is kind of a combination of the two.

suldog - The heat's supposed to break tomorrow and I'll be so glad!!

Thank you for the birthday wishes. This sounds delicious. I love making homemade ice-cream and need to bring out the ice cream maker. Stay cool friend.

Hi, again, Lisa...
Many thanks for you loving comment at my place. We are still in great shock & sadness over the tragedy that happened here this past weekend. Thank you for thinking of us! ((HUGS)) P.S. We made raspberry sorbet at the weekend for much needed treat--it was sooo good! :o)

esme - You're welcome friend! Luckily it cooled off and we can breathe easy until Thursday when the heat and humidity return.

tracy - You were the first person that I thought of when I heard the news. So glad that you and yours are safe and that you were able to relax with some sorbet making. : )
