Rosie Makes: White Chocolate & Lavender No-Churn Ice Cream

White Chocolate & Lavender No-Churn Ice Cream

According to the forecast, Summer is due to properly arrive in Britain this week – about time too – so it’s the perfect excuse to try out those high Summer recipes that have been waiting for their moment in the spotlight. I first made Nigella Lawson’s no-churn ice cream last year, and was a total convert. No faffing making custard, or with complex machinery; just cream, condensed milk and the flavourings of your choice. It’s so easy to make that it’s barely a recipe! Just whip up and freeze – an ideal no-faff treat to cool down during the heatwave. This time I tried my hand at lavender and white chocolate, a delicious Summery pairing that balances sweet and floral, almost herbal notes. To make it, you will need:

300ml double cream (I used Elmlea)
175g condensed milk
A few drops of lavender extract
100g white chocolate.

I found lavender extract in the baking heaven that is Lakeland – it’s by Star Key White. You can find it online too!

Add a few drops of lavender extract to your taste – I would err on the side of caution and add a drop at a time until you think it’s right, as this is pungent stuff!

Once it’s frozen, serve the ice cream fresh from the freezer – it doesn’t take long to soften up.

  1. […] posted the instructions for no-churn ice cream here and here, so won’t do the step by step again. Beat the cream and evaporated milk until stiff peaks […]
