Summer may be winding down, but there is still plenty of time to enjoy this easy SALTED CARAMEL CASHEW NO-CHURN ICE CREAM!
If you make any homemade no-churn ice cream recipe this year, let it be Salted Caramel Cashew No-Churn Ice Cream. This recipe has only a few ingredients. You do not need an ice cream maker to make it. Therefore, Anyone with an electric mixer (or a really strong arm) can make this ice cream! It mixes together in minutes and the hardest part is waiting for it to freeze, I promise!
Have you jumped on the no-churn ice cream bandwagon yet? Last year, I did some research on no-churn ice cream recipes. I was seeing them all over Pinterst and was anxious to give one a try. I found the recipes that just called for heavy whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk for the ice cream base were just a little too rich for my liking. So, after a little experimentation, I found the right formula. By adding just a little whole milk to the recipe, it cut the richness but still left it creamy. This Salted Caramel Cashew No-Churn Ice Cream is made with a little whole milk too. But no worries, it’s still a nice a creamy ice cream even with the addition of milk. If you don’t mind a really rich experience, you can just leave the milk out when you make it.
I still love the very first no-churn ice cream I made last year: rich and creamy Caramel Macchiato No-Churn Ice Cream. It was love at first taste and I was shocked at how easy it was to make! This year, I wanted a to make a different flavor, and so, Salted Caramel Cashew was born. Since this recipe only calls for a half of a can of sweetened condensed milk, I was left with some extra product. However, I am not one who likes to waste. I used the other half of the sweetened condensed milk to make a wonderful Michigan Cherry Amaretto No-Churn Ice Cream too! That is the beauty of no-churn ice cream recipes…they are so easy, you can make a variety of flavors in one afternoon! Think of all the flavor possibilities!
