Rose Ice Cream
- I came across this recipe and thought to myself, NO WAY is this real! The picture itself made me want to dive head first into a bowl of this stuff. It looks so damn good that I had to share this with you all!
- First lets start by saying, I LOVE LOVE LOVE roses! I know you were thinking Ice Cream, but no way. I love roses a lot more. I keep fresh roses in my house (as often as I can) and I just jump at the opportunity to incorporate roses into my life. Did I mention roses are my favorite essential oil fragrance? Yes, its and expensive habit to have but i love to set the tone in my bedroom (hint hint wink) by diffusing the powerful lovers scent of Rose.
Rose fragrance, Roses, Rosé even, is a little piece of heaven on earth for me. IDK about y'all! Lol. So I've taken the liberty to GIFT my girls (you guys duh) with this lovely Rose Ice Cream Recipe. I hope you try and enjoy it as much as I have.
Step 1: prepare
Rose flavored Ice Cream is such a nice treat. Make sure you have an ice cream maker on hand or just do the old double bag, rock salt, and ice trick. Ill leave a link here if you need to check it out!
Now, Whats Rose flavored Ice Cream without rose flavoring? Rose water will do the trick nicely. You can also get creative by steeping the roses into your warm (not boiled) milk or cream. This should not only give your ice cream its magnificent rose notes, but it should also color the milk or cream to a nice red without using food coloring. Although this particular recipe causes for food coloring. (BOOOOOO)
Step 2: Gather
Gather your ingredients together so you know what you got! lol.
So we prepared with the rose water, milk or cream, now lets get some other ingredients together.
3/4 cup whole milk (can steep roses)
1/2 cup white sugar
16 fluid ounces heavy/whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup rose water1 (no need if you steeped the milk add 1/4 cup of milk to substitute.)
drop pink food coloring (if you like)
Step 3: Mix it all Together!
- Combine the milk and sugar in a large bowl using a hand mixer until the sugar is dissolved (about 2 minutes).
- Add the remaining ingredients and continue mixing until combined. The concentration of rose water can vary, so it's a good idea to build up to the 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) a tablespoon at a time so you can give it a taste and add more without adding too much.
- Pour the mixture into the bowl of your ice cream maker and run the machine for about 30 minutes or until it reaches the consistency you like.
- Serve immediately or transfer to a container and freeze until it's more firm.
Step 4: EAT!
Well, I hope you all enjoyed this recipe as much as I did.
Go and actually make it. lol If not I hope you enjoyed reading about it. I think its a wonderful feeling to try new things and do things you wouldn't ordinarily do. This recipe reminds me of when I was at Beyonce's favorite restaurant in Paris called L'Avenue. There i tried Lavender Ice Cream and boy was it AMAZEBALLS!!! It was nothing like I expected it had such a nice flavor to it. Im super glad I tried it.
Thanks for reading and don't forget to leave your comments below. I'd love to hear what you have to say on the topic. Even if you hate roses. Hahahahaha Here are some roses for you!
