Easy Wine Ice Cream Recipe
Have you been hoping to come across a wine ice cream recipe since you first heard about it? (The retail price of a carton isn’t the cheapest thing around). I sure have! I just hadn’t really thought about looking any up until now! But I’m really glad I did, now.
I figured it would be really hard to make because ice cream is so delicious… but I forgot that there are many ways to create ice cream! This wine ice cream recipe will be creamy and custardy!
Wine Ice Cream Recipe Ingredients
- 3 egg yolks
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup red or white wine (sweet is recommended)
- optional fruit toppings (inspired by this almost-instant recipe)
I can’t handle a lot of red wines, so my wine of choice will be a sweet white! I’d suggest getting something a little more than cheap, but there’s no shame in the game if you take that route! (I probably will a time or two).
A lot of people are really hesitant to try wine ice cream because they don’t like the idea of mixing booze and dairy. I can understand and support this decision wholly. I can’t deny my interest in trying it despite that hesitancy, either. I was cautious when it came to drinking my first White Russian, so I understand! But many of the reviews I’ve read and opinions I’ve heard positively rave about it.
In moderation, I don’t see the harm. That goes for many things! Have a small scoop after dinner! At least to try it once, if you’re not allergic or sensitive to either product!
How to Make Wine Ice Cream
- Place the egg yolks into a bowl that won’t melt with hot liquid added to it.
- Combine the sugar, coconut milk, and cream over medium heat in a saucepan.
- Simmer and allow the sugar to dissolve by mixing and stirring it around.
- When the cream is hot, start combining it into the bowl of egg yolks. Don’t stir too slowly or take too long!
- Transfer the yolks and cream to the pan.
- Cook the creamy yolks over medium heat, frequently stirring them for a few minutes.
- It will become a custard and will be a bit thick,
- but do not allow it to come to a boil.
- Pour the custard into another heat safe bowl (or the other one if you cleaned it).
- Combine the custard with your choice of wine, cover, and refrigerate until safe to freeze.
When your wine ice cream recipe is complete, it will be firm and ready to eat! I can’t wait to try this out! Enjoy yours!
