Caribbean Spiced Ice Dream

What makes this Caribbean-Spiced?  Freshly ground nutmeg from Grenada!Freshly ground nutmeg

For my last birthday I was treated with an ice cream maker and I’m absolutely in love with it.  It’s just 20 minutes from when I flip the switch on until I have smooth & dreamy ice cream.  Don’t have an ice cream maker?  No problem!  You can store your liquid mixture into a freezer-safe container for 1 hour!  Now you have absolutely no excuses to not make your own!

    Looks delicious! Have you tried ice cream using almonds? We may have to get an ice cream maker. I can’t believe that I hadn’t thought about using any milk other than cow’s milk for ice cream!

      Thank you! That sounds like a great idea (however, I’m allergic to almonds!). The cashews in this recipe make this a creamy, rich-tasting gelato. Absolutely superb! I’m on a little cashew binge (testing different cheeses, milks, creams) & falling in love with them all over again!

    Oh, this looks soooo good! I really, really want an ice cream maker, but I’m going to give this a try without one. 🙂

      It’s super easy without one! Just make sure you check on your mixture in one after placing it in the freezer (it should still be a little soft at this time). It used to be my method before the ice cream maker days ;).
