I am soooo thrilled to host a ‘No-Churn Ice-cream Week’ on my blog! This is going to be a first hand experience for me to be blogging around one theme throughout the week. Challenge accepted!
I love ice-creams and I love to experiment with different flavors which can be made without investing into an ice-cream maker. I bet you would too! I mean… come’on… who wouldn’t like a bowl full of this home-made goodness when it is so easy to whip up! Plus, you know what has gone into making of this ice-cream so perfectly safe for your kiddos! Give them as much as they wish to eat! 😉
Coming first in this series is Coffee & Nutella Ice-cream with Oreo Chunks… Oreos and Nutella are kids’ favorite and a kick of caffeine will make it gratifying for adults too.. So all in all it is a win-win-win for everyone!
The ice-cream has only 4 ingredients! Don’t believe me? Believe me!… Only 4 ingredients… Okay if you count few droplets of water as an ingredient then 5!
You might have all these ingredients already in your pantry so no extra trip involved to supermarket! So whip this up right away and surprise your kid with it when he is back from school, treat your hubby with it when he is returns from office or just pamper yourself!
Oh… Forgot to list another advantage! No extra sugar required to be added as Oreos and Nutella already have enough sweetness to it. Plus, the cream used here is medium fat so the resultant ice-cream is light and does not taste too rich. Soooo Deee-liish! 🙂
No-Churn Coffee & Nutella Ice-Cream with Oreo Chunks
Yields: around 20 large scoops of ice-cream
- 3 Tbsp instant coffee powder
- 2 Tbsp hot water
- 2 Tbsp Nutella, at room temperature
- 500 ml medium fat cream (approx 40% fat)
- 20 Oreo cookies, chunks
(I used combination of choco-creme and plain sandwich Oreo cookies)
In a large bowl, add hot water to instant coffee-powder and dissolve coffee completely. Add Nutella and cream to this and whip till you get a light, fluffy mix and soft peaks form in the mix.
Oreo chunks to this mix (In a zip-lock bag, add Oreo cookies and use roller-pin to form chunks). Fold in Spoon the mixture in a airtight container and freeze for 4-5 hours. Your ice-cream is ready to be gobbled up!
*Use electric whipper for your convenience and if your are whipping with hand, all the best, your muscle strength will be definitely put to test! 😉
