No ice cream maker? No problem! This lovely Balsamic Raspberry Ripple Ice Cream is no churn, yet creamy and sweet with tart raspberry veins running through it. It’s a no fuss way to enjoy a scoop of cool indulgence this summer.
I myself do not own an ice cream maker! I know, how is this possible? I won’t say I don’t want one, it’s just not at the top of my Christmas list sorta speak. Hence the no churn ice cream makes its first appearance on Compelled To Cook. You might also want to try my Cherry and Chocolate Semifreddo, that is a frozen custard like dessert and no churn as well.
I love the tart raspberry sauce rippling throughout creamy mounds of cool sweetness and what really makes this raspberry sauce pop is the raspberry balsamic vinegar. It’s bursting with flavour and adds a glorious and balancing acidity that is subdued by an overload of cream. And this is why I will at some point purchase and ice cream maker, because as delicious as this is, I do believe a traditional ice cream made with the same sauce would be fabulous. In the meantime I’m happy to indulge in a scoop or two of this no churn delight. You will love it too!
Recipe source for Balsamic Raspberry Ripple Ice Cream: Compelled To Cook
- 3 tbsp raspberry or regular balsamic vinegar
- 3 cups fresh raspberries
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract divided
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk 1 can
- In a small sauce pan add balsamic vinegar and heat over medium until it begins to boil. Allow to reduce for 1 minute, stirring often. Set aside.
- In a medium sauce pan stir together raspberries, sugar and water. Cook over medium heat until raspberries are mashed down and mixture is bubbling. Continue to cook until thick and syrupy, stirring often, approximately 10 minutes. Strain using a fine mesh sieve, pressing solids against the sides to expel as much juice as possible. Discard solids and stir reduced balsamic vinegar and 1/2tsp vanilla into raspberry juice. Cool until chilled.
- Whip cream and 1tsp vanilla until stiff peaks form. Fold sweetened condensed milk into whipped cream. Pour half into a 9"x5" loaf pan. Drizzle half the raspberry sauce over the cream mixture. Pour remaining cream mixture over to cover completely. Top with remaining raspberry sauce and swirl using a bread knife. Cover and freeze for at least 8 hours.
That looks absolutely gorgeous and delicious! It puts my ice cream to shame, ha!
Thank you Jas! I’m not so sure about the shame, your Coconut Lime Ice Cream Bars look pretty amazing my dear.
