I have shared a lot of ice cream recipes over the years. We kind of like it at our house!
All of those recipes have required an ice cream maker. I know several of you have gone out and bought an ice cream maker to try some of my recipes. But today I’ve got an ice cream recipe that even those of you who do not own an ice cream maker can make. No ice cream maker required!
I have to admit I was a little skeptical but was amazed at how delicious it turned out. I took it to our empty nester family home evening group that we get together with once a month and everyone loved it! You will need a mixer though. I used my Kitchen Aid but a hand mixer will do too – it’s just a little more work.
I used the juice of a large orange and a lime so I ended up with about a cup of fresh juice. I also used the rind from the orange and lime. That gets mixed in with some powdered sugar and whip cream. Then whip it all up until a nice soft peak forms. Then it is ready to put into a container and into the freezer to harden or “ripen” for about 5 hours.
Then all that is left is to scoop and serve!
It has a perfect orange flavor with just a hint of lime and the texture is light and airy. It kind of melts right in your mouth (just like ice cream is suppose to!)
For some other ice cream goodness try these:
