No-churn rocky road ice cream

My last homemade ice cream this year er hopefully , not !

The weather's a-changing here , the 30° yesterday was tolerable and a bit cooler compare to the same temperature we had few days ago  .

I really need to use the cream least it'll go stale again ( I chucked more than 500 ml of whipping cream few days ago *sigh* ) , so making this ice cream is a no-brainer .

Since I hop from blog to blog while typing this post , I stumbled upon this post from David Lebovitz's site that you can freeze cream ! Darn it , why I didn't Google it before ?! Don't really know though if the UHT whipping cream that I'm using will freeze well .....

This is a spin from the no-churn vanilla ice cream that I've seen from Yen's blog last week and planning to add melted chocolate but changed my mind , so I made this rocky road version instead .

The original rocky road ice cream , according to Wiki , is traditionally composed of chocolate ice cream , nuts and marshmallows - no chocolate chips is added before . Now , some recipes are based from vanilla ice cream with chocolate chips , almonds and marshmallows .

Rocky road is quiet popular in the Philippines when I was young but never even tried it since I love strawberry ice cream and no ice cream flavor will do except that lol 

Don't like rocky road flavor ? Use any berries that you like , lemon or lime curd , melted chocolate or any flavor combo that you can think of .

It's a no-churn ice cream , guys ! Try it , maybe you'll like it ^___^ 

Recipe first seen @ Yen of Eat your Heart Out , please check original recipe @ BBCGoodFood

Makes about 1 quart

400 grams whipping cream
85 grams condensed milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 tablespoon Dutch-processed cocoa powder , add more if prefer
50 grams milk chocolate chips
50 mini marshmallows
40 grams dry roasted almonds , coarsely chopped

* Pour the cream and the condensed milk in a large mixing bowl and put it in the fridge to chill , put  the beater in the fridge as well ( sans the machine ! ) especially if it is hot in your side of the world .

* Using a handheld electric mixer , starting on low speed , beat until the cocoa has dissolved then turn up speed to medium and beat until thick and stiff , add in  about 2/3 of  the chocolate chips, almonds and marshmallows , use a spatula and stir to combine . Transfer into a freezer container , top with the remaining chips , marshmallows and almonds and cover with cling wrap . Freeze until solid , at least hours or overnight , if you can wait that long .

* Before scooping , let it set at room temperature for about 5 minutes to soften a bit .

    LOL! I was reading DL's website on freezing cream just last week! Haha! I tried it once before, but the cream separates! It doesn't work for me, but maybe I would have to give it another try with cooking cream this time.
    That ice cream of yours is looking mighty yummy! Wish that container is in my freezer right now! :)

  8. Love ice creams but i hardly make them because it will be hard to control myself from eating, so i have a cup of your luscious looking rocky road ice cream, please?

  13. What a same about that cream, Anne. Well, you'll know for the next time. I should say,however, I have found when I freeze cream that it usually doesn't have the same consistency until you "whip" it up.

    Now, as for that Rocky Road Ice Cream you're serving up there, YUM! it's one of my very best favorites! I think I'll add this link to the list of saved ice cream recipes my daughter has promised me she will make when I visit her in May:)

    Thank you so much for sharing, and yes, if you would send me that pasta link that would be great!

  14. wow this is one dang rich and delicious ice cream, Anne.

  15. This looks sooo good! I can't believe i thought I needed to churn ice cream. I'm free and this is the perfect way to celebrate said freedom. Delish!

  16. Whoa, this looks fantastic!!! Perfect way to beat the heat! I've turned on our furnace...but I'd still be willing to eat a bowl of your ice cream!
