Almond Milk Ice Cream with Silk AlmondMilk #SilkAlmondBlends #shop

We love the benefits of almond milk, and we use it fairly often in our lattes. I love that it steams up so nicely and it’s so delicious too.

Last week I was challenged to create some delicious almond milk recipes. I brainstormed a bit, and then challenge accepted. I thought I’d attempt to make some almond milk ice cream. How hard can it be?

Our local Safeway carries Silk Almondmilk and it’s right up the street – as in I can walk there – so I headed up the block (well, a few blocks) to pick up ingredients for almond milk ice cream.

Except there was one small problem… no ice cream maker. I’ve been coveting the ice cream maker attachment for my KitchenAid stand mixer for quite some time, but I had a hard time justifying buying it on a whim. Trust me though, I debated it for quite some time. The alternative was to get some coffee cans (easier said then done) and go old school. That didn’t work for me either.

I was not to be deterred.

After some investigation I realized all I needed was a shallow glass or metal dish that would fit inside my freezer and some time.  Wait? What? How?

2 Tbsp cornstarch

Ingredients for Almond Milk Ice Cream #SilkAlmondBlends #Shop Directions
Whisk Almond Milk, French Vanilla Creamer and Agave together in a medium sized sauce pan.
Simmer for about 5 minutes over medium heat, and then stir in vanilla extract.
Remove from heat and remove about 1/4 cup from the pan and whisk it together with the cornstarch together in a small bowl.
When fully combined, whisk the mixture back into the pan, cover and let it infuse for about 20 minutes.
Set your sauce pan in an ice bath and allow it to cool completely.
Once cool, carefully pour your mixture into a shallow baking dish that will fit in your freezer.
About every 45-60 minutes, check the mixture to see if it’s freezing.If it is, use a spoon or spatula to scrape it off the sides and bottom of the dish.  This will take a few hours, depending on your freezer.

After a few hours, it will look more like ice cream and less like a frozen disaster. HA!

You will definitely get more ice crystals than you would if you were to use an ice cream maker, the end result is more of a icy gelato affect, but it’s still very delicious!

Even my husband agrees, it was quite the hit! He’s ready to make it again. I have to say, he’s right!
