Key Lime Rum Pie Ice Cream

Happy Fourth of July weekend!  We are squeezing as much into our long weekend as we can.  Fireworks, baseball, pool time, family, good food, ice cream and beverages are on our list.  Fourth of July always makes us think of homemade ice cream. This year is no different, so we share with you our latest cool treat – Key Lime Rum Pie Ice Cream.

We came across this recipe in the July 2021 issue of Southern Living Magazine.  It is based on our basic no churn ice cream recipe that we used in our other ice cream favorites, such as, Kerrygold Ice Cream, Mojito Ice Cream, and Raspberry No-Churn Ice Cream.  We changed the ingredient list slightly and the results are delicious.

To make Key Lime Rum Pie Ice Cream you will need graham crackers, melted butter, granulated sugar, fat free sweetened condensed milk, lime zest, lime juice, dark rum, salt and heavy whipping cream.

First crush the graham crackers, and then stir in melted butter and sugar.  Set aside.

Next you will make the ice cream base by combining the condensed milk, lime zest, lime juice, rum, and salt in a large bowl.  In a chilled bowl, beat the heavy cream until stiff peaks form.  Then fold together the condensed milk mixture with the whipped cream.  Set aside 1-2 tablespoons of the graham cracker mixture. Then fold in the remaining graham cracker mixture into the whipped cream mixture.

Place in a loaf pan and sprinkle with reserved graham crackers.  Place in a freezer for 6 hours.

Key Lime Rum Pie Ice Cream is a enticing departure from usual ice cream options. The lime, rum and graham flavors are a delicious, refreshing combination in this ice cream – a yummy summertime treat. If chocolate and Oreos are you thing, substitute crushed Oreos for the graham crackers – delish!

Celebrate the USA with Raspberry No-Churn Ice Cream

Last night we went to our first outdoor concert in 2 years.  We originally purchased the tickets in 2019 to see Rick Springfield with Chicago, but we only saw Chicago.  We guess Rick stayed in Australia?  Either way, we are had fun getting back to some of our favorite summer past times.  Speaking of favorite summer activities, you know that ice cream is one of things that we enjoy most over summer and this week we have a easy, tasty and fresh ice cream recipe that will be sure to rival the fireworks at your Fourth of July festivities.

This gem of a recipe is from our easy no-churn ice cream recipe base that we shared with you in our Move Our Paciugo… post. Instead of using Irish Cream for the flavor base, we added Chambord Raspberry Liqueur and it was ah-mazing!  Why we didn’t think of this before?  A simple garnish of fresh berries on this silky, smooth ice cream is a simple and delicious dessert for any time of a summer.

This recipe is the perfect recipe for a weekend at the lake or beach.  Not only are there few ingredients, but you can easily enjoy homemade ice cream without the need of an ice cream churn.

The ingredients that you will need are: a can of sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, salt, Chambord Raspberry Liqueur, and heavy cream.  Remember, one of the best things about this recipe is that  all you need is a hand held electric mixer and a freezer.

Make sure that your mixing bowl and beaters have set in the freezer for about 20 minutes before starting the ice cream.  It will help the cream peak sooner.

Stir together the  milk, vanilla, salt and Chambord. Set aside.

Place cream in the chilled bowl and beat on medium-high speed for 2 minutes or until peaks form.

Fold 1/3 whipped cream mixture into milk mixture to lighten it and then fold in the remaining cream until ice cream mixture is smooth. Be careful not to over whisk and stir.  You don’t want to deflate the whipped cream. Carefully pour the creamy mixture into a glass loaf pan. Place in the freezer for 8 hours.

Top the ice cream with fresh berries when serving and enjoy the fireworks!
