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!
