No Churn Butterscotch Ice Cream
INGREDIENTS FOR WHIPPED CREAM
- 3 cups Heavy Whipping Cream (liquid)
- A pinch of Salt
ICE CREAM INGREDIENTS
- 14 oz Sweetened Condensed milk
- 1/4 cup Dry Milk powder
- 1/2 cup Heavy Whipping Cream (liquid)
- 3/4 cup Crushed Nuts
- 2 teaspoon Butterscotch essence
- 1/8 teaspoon Saffron mixed in warm water or use yellow food coloring (optional)
MAKING OF PRALINE - BUTTERSCOTCH CHIPS
- Add all the two ingredients listed under "Butterscotch ingredients" 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 chips are ready.
MAKING OF 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.
ASSEMBLING ICE CREAM
- Assemble ingredients for ice cream.
- For yellow color - Soak saffron strands in 3 tablespoons of warm milk. Or you could use yellow food coloring.
- Roughly chop almonds and cashews.
- 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. If you like a nutty ice cream add 3/4 cup of chopped/crushed nuts but if you prefer fewer nuts in your ice cream than add 1/2 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!
- A creamy and silky ice-cream ready in a snap!
