This easy rum raisin ice-cream is the grown up version of the classic vanilla ice-cream. It has crunch built in with the addition of some grape-nut. The fact that this is a no churn ice cream makes is super easy to make and more importantly enjoy.
It had to happen.
I mean really, it is 78 degrees outside and that is all the encouragement that I need to make ice-cream. Can I just say how happy I am that it is almost summer? Isn’t spring just a preview of what is to come? Summer is made for lemonades, popsicle and ICE CREAM. So let’s just pretend it is summer and eat more ice-cream. And on a side note I had this last night after watching TWD. I needed it.
So once again condense milk comes to the rescue. Basically, this ice-cream is made up of condensed milk, rum, raisin, coconut milk, grape-nut, and a lil heavy cream. The rum helps with the texture of the ice-cream. Because I refuse to buy a ice-cream maker that makes this a win-win-win recipe.
So my life goals are complete. I have finally done it y’all, my mom is over the moon involve with this rum and raisin ice cream. She is a big fan. Se light had a moment. I mean like stop the press- call your best friend- post a Facebook rant- kind of moment. It is creamy, rich, fluffy, perfectly sweet, scoopable, seriously simple and super easy.
I made a tub for almost everyone that I know. For whatever reason: college graduation- you get a tub , job promotion- you get a tub , putting spring bulbs in the garden- you get a tub . It doesn’t matter why EVERYONE GETS A TUB! Yup, I totally had an Oprah moment. It felt good like I was helping my friends and family to get to the next level.
This easy rum raisin ice-cream is rummy and yummy in my tummy. And because I love you guys I want you to make this… just do it. You will thank me. I’m sure about this.
