19 Icecreamlove: Gluten Free Spiced Ice Cream

It's June, and time to celebrate our love for ice cream! The food-love bloghop I've co-hosted the past couple months decided to share ice cream recipes this month! Super exciting and just in time for summer!

One thing I love about ice cream is that it is super easy to make gluten free. There's occasionally some ingredients to worry about (I'm looking at you gluten-ified brands of vanilla extract...you tricky devils, you), but other than that it is the dessert that gluten-free folks dream of.

I've made various ice creams and sorbets in the past (I'm looking at you Hazelnut Ice Cream Waffle and Lemon Mint Sorbet), and am looking forward to all the creations this month. My first #icecreamlove recipe is inspired by pumpkin pie. This recipe doesn't include any pumpkin puree, but is packed with all the spices that go in it. Combined with the vanilla in the ice cream, this ice cream almost tastes like it should be in a pie....mmmmm.

Gluten Free Spiced Ice Cream

Prep: 5 minutes
Chill Time: 25 minutes

1 cup milk
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp gluten free vanilla extract
1 pint (2 cups) heavy cream
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp allspice
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp nutmeg

Steps


1. Whisk the sugar into the milk in a medium bowl until the sugar has dissolved.

2. Whisk in the vanilla, cream, and spices until well combined.

3. Pour the mix into your prepared ice cream maker, and freeze for about 25 minutes.

4. You can eat the ice cream now if you're impatient like me, but if you'd like a well set ice cream that doesn't melt as quickly, transfer the ice cream to an air-tight container (can't stress the air-tight part enough) to set for 2 hours before serving.

Enjoy!

  6. Sounds heavenly to me, I love cinnamon ice-cream with bananas and in fact I made a cinnamon banana ice-cream last year and posted it on my blog. Spices and ice-cream go together so well. Great job on your ice-cream :)

  9. I love all of the spices in your ice cream, especially the cinnamon. You could add some cooked apples or pumpkin to make apple or pumpkin pie ice cream. Sending lots of #icecreamlove your way.
