To me, there is nothing better than a cold sweet treat at the end of a hard day’s work. I was on NBC Weekend TODAY this past Sunday tasting the wackiest flavors of ice cream- everything from spicy cinnamon to sweet and refreshing strawberry basil. While the ice cream from the store was pretty delicious, the taste testing got me thinking about homemade ice cream and how there is really nothing better.
Sometimes, though, I just don’t want to go through the hassle of churning cream and sugar to make the yummy dessert. What I know I can do, however, is mix up some ingredients and let my freezer do all the hard work!
Take a peek at this Key Lime Pie Ice Cream recipe that requires no churning at all (via Good Life Eats).
What You’ll Need…
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup bottled Key lime juice (such as Nellie and Joe’s)
1/2 cup heavy cream
Dash of salt
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
6 graham crackers (1 1/2 cookie sheets), coarsely crushed, divided
Key lime wedges
1. In a large bowl, combine milk, lime juice, heavy cream, salt and sweetened condensed milk; whisk to combine.
2. Pour mixture into your ice cream maker, and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions.
3. Stir 1/3 cup graham crackers into ice cream. Spoon ice cream into a freezer-safe container, and cover and freeze for 1 hour or until firm. Sprinkle each serving with 1 teaspoon graham crackers. Garnish with lime wedges.
