No Churn Butterscotch Ice Cream
TO MAKE BUTTERSCOTCH CHIPS
- 1 tablespoon Unsalted Butter
- 1 tablespoon Coconut Oil
- ¾ cup Brown sugar
INGREDIENTS FOR WHIPPED CREAM
- 3 cups Heavy Whipping Cream (liquid)
- A pinch of Salt
MAKING OF PRALINE – BUTTERSCOTCH CHIPS
- Add butter, coconut oil, and brown sugar in a heavy-bottomed pan.
- Cook until all the three ingredients are well blended and thick.
- Transfer this mix onto a parchment paper and allow it to cool.
- Cut into pieces, and homemade butterscotch pralines are ready.
HOMEMADE WHIPPED CREAM
- Before you start, chill the balloon electric whisk attachment and bowl in the refrigerator for an hour. Pour whipping cream and a pinch of salt to the chilled bowl.
- Turn the mixer or hand blender to medium speed and start whipping the cream. Within 2- 3 minutes, the cream will begin to get frothy and thicken up, whip until it forms a firm peak.
- To check if the whipped cream has the right consistency – remove the whisk/blender from the mixer/base. Turn it upside down and if the whipped cream maintains its soft peak firmly without falling off the blade – it’s ready to use and is perfect. Whipped cream is all set.
ASSEMBLE ICE CREAM
- For yellow color – Soak saffron strands in 3 tablespoons of warm milk. Or you could use yellow food coloring.
- In a bowl combine whipped cream (that we had prepared earlier), along with milk powder, Butterscotch essence, and condensed milk.
- Add yellow color or strain the saffron color into the bowl.
- Gently fold in all the ingredients. Do not whisk, fold gently.
- Add the chopped nuts. For a nuttier ice cream add ¾ cup of chopped/crushed nuts but if you prefer fewer nuts in your ice cream than add ½ a cup of chopped/crushed nuts.
- Crush some of the butterscotch chips with a rolling pin and add it to the ice cream mix.
- Pour in the cream.
- Mix to combine. Transfer ice cream to a freezer safe bowl (9 x 5-inch pan) and freeze until firm.
- Once set, remove from freezer and enjoy!
