MARGARITA "NO-CHURN" ICE CREAM
I first saw this recipe on La Bella Cook and I was so excited to try it..."no-churn" ice cream...what could be better!?
After a little Internet search I found out it is Nigella Lawsons' recipe. She claims "If you want to serve it in glasses dipped in sugar or salt, by all means do. But it is so good...I find I can spoon it straight into my mouth from the container I've chilled it in...This is truly the express way to dessert-deliriousness."
Ok, now I am sold. It doesn't take much...any one who knows me knows I am addicted to ice cream.
I loved this...especially the lime. It isn't quite as delicious as churned ice cream but it is definitely a close second. Next time I make it I will add lime zest into the ice cream before its frozen and don't forget to add lime zest on top of the ice cream before serving.
Margarita "No-Churn" Ice Cream
Adapted from Nigella Lawson
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons tequila
3 tablespoons orange liqueur (recommended: Cointreau or Triple Sec)
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
2 cups heavy cream
Pour the lime juice, tequila and orange liqueur into a bowl and stir in the sugar to dissolve.
Add the cream and then softly whip until thick and smooth but not stiff.
Spoon into an airtight container to freeze overnight. This ice cream does not need ripening (softening before serving), as it will not freeze too hard and melts speedily and voluptuously.
