VEGAN RASPBERRY RIPPLE ICE CREAM (NO CHURN)


It's just the weather for ice cream at the moment in Scotland (according to our car, it hit 31c today) and I have a super easy, no-churn, vegan raspberry ripple ice cream for you to try.

Of course, if you have an ice cream maker, you are free to use that, but really it doesn't need to be churned at all.

This ice cream is creamy and tastes glorious.

It's a small batch, enough for 3 generous portions, so feel free to make a double batch.

MAKING THE RASPBERRY RIPPLE


There are three ways to make the ripple in a raspberry ripple ice cream.

  1. Mix through fresh raspberries, allowing them to break up as they are mixed.
  2. Mash the raspberries with a fork, adding in some icing (confectioner's) sugar if the raspberries are tart.
  3. Cooking the raspberries in a pan with a squeeze or lemon juice and some caster sugar. Bring it to the boil and allow to simmer for 2-3 minutes. A bit like making jam.
I like to just use unadulterated raspberries and let them break as they are folded in, but you may use any of these three methods with the quantity of raspberries I have in the recipe.

WHAT DO I NEED TO MAKE RASPBERRY RIPPLE ICE CREAM?



EQUIPMENT


  1. Mixing bowl
  2. Whisk - you could use a hand whisk, electric whisk, blender or food processor
  3. Teaspoon
  4. Spatula - or large spoon
  5. Large loaf tin* - I used a 2 lb (900g) loaf tin
  6. Clingfilm - or other cover for the loaf tin
* see below -  alternative ways to store ice cream

INGREDIENTS


  1. Vegan double cream or whipping cream - I used Elmlea Plant Double Cream, but you can use your favourite. If you are vegetarian you could use regular double cream.
  2. Vegan condensed milk - or regular condensed milk if you are vegetarian. I use Carnation Vegan Condensed Milk.
  3. Vanilla extract - don't use essence if you can help it, it's horrible stuff (in my opinion anyway).
  4. Fresh raspberries - you could use frozen but they won't break up as you stir them in.
  5. Chocolate strands - or chocolate chips. I used dark chocolate vermicelli.
  6. Raspberry syrup - or strawberry syrup, to decorate and serve. This is optional.

ALTERNATIVE WAYS TO STORE ICE CREAM



A loaf tin makes the perfect storage and scoop serve container for ice cream, but you can use other containers.

If you're using the loaf tin, you can line the whole loaf tin with cling film before adding the ice cream, or just use it to cover the top of the loaf tin before freezing.

Buy coated cardboard, pint ice cream tubs, which are available online. I bought some but my husband hasn't located them yet. I am sure he put them in the loft.

You could also use an airtight container or an old, clean litre ice cream tub. 

Alternatively, you could even use a freezer-friendly glass casserole dish.



WHY DO YOU NOT NEED TO CHURN THE ICE CREAM?



Adding condensed milk to the ice cream mix, makes it super soft and creamy without the need for an ice cream maker or churning it by hand every 2 hours.

It just works.

However, you need to be careful adding condensed milk. If you add too much, for instance, a whole can, it will ruin the ice cream.

Use too much and it overpowers the other flavours. It really isn't pleasant if you add too much. I notice so many people making this mistake.

ADDING CHOCOLATE TO ICE CREAM



This ice cream would be delicious with just the vanilla and raspberries, but adding the chocolate makes it even more divine.

I added dark chocolate vermicelli, but you could add chocolate strands, flakes or even chocolate chips.

You may think that chocolate vermicelli and chocolate strands are the same, but they really aren't.

Chocolate vermicelli is made from actual chocolate whereas chocolate strands are often just coloured sugar strands or chocolate flavoured strands. They have little resemblance taste-wise to actual chocolate.

SOME CHEEKY WEE ICE CREAM TIPS



Here are a few ice cream tips
  1. To keep the ice cream soft add 1 tbsp of alcohol to the mixture. You could use rum, whisky or vodka. Any spirit really. They will stop it from freezing complerely.
  2. If you are not adding alcohol to the mixture, leave the ice cream out for a few minutes to soften before serving.
  3. Sit your ice cream scoop in boiling water for a few minutes before scooping the ice cream. This will make it glide through the ice cream easier.
  4. Use a metal ice cream scoop with a spring release action. It has a little curved blade inside the head of the scoop to help release the ice cream.

I like to use a spring release ice cream scoop that has been sitting in boiling water to scoop ice cream, as it makes it much easier.

Leave out of the freezer for a few minutes to soften first.

Enjoy!

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 120g (1 cup) fresh raspberries)

Instructions

  1. Whisk up the double cream and vanilla until it is thick and leaves a trail from the whisk.
  2. Add the condensed milk and whisk again.
  3. Now add the raspberries and chocolate. This time gently fold in. You don't want to knock the air out.

  5. Freeze for a few hours until set, then scoop and serve.

  1. You may use chocolate vermicelli, chocolate strands or chocolate chips. You may also leave them out.

  4. Freeze in a loaf tin covered with cling film or an airtight container.

  6. While the ice cream softens, soak the ice cream scoop in boiling water, it will make it easier to scoop the ice cream.
  7. You can also add a tbsp of alcohol to help keep the ice cream soft. Whisky, rum or vodka would work. You won't really taste it.

  14. I made the coffee ice cream. It was amazing! I’ve shared the recipe with all my vegan friends.

    What do you do with what’s left in the tin of condensed milk? I tried some in coffee and it was gross. I ended up chucking it which seems a waste.

    1. I am so pleased you enjoyed it and thanks for sharing it.

      I tend to pop the rest of the condensedi milk in the fridge and and either make another batch of ice cream or I make truffles. If you search for rum truffles on this blog ( you can use orange juice instead of rum).
