Rose Ice Cream Recipe

I want to preface this recipe by saying, don't drink and Amazon. It leads to know good. You're almost guaranteed to buy random things you don't need. Sometimes it gets weird, like deciding you need a 500-pack of black ankle socks or that you should probably buy a fitness DVD even though you don't have a DVD player because it's no longer 2005. But sometimes it can turn into a happy accident, like when I had too much pinot grigio and bought this ice cream maker! 

This recipe is perfect for spring, especially a mother's day brunch. It tastes light and refreshing with just a hint of rose. And it's pretty to look at. I added a rose to make it extra festive but you could also add edible rose petals (I like these).Go easy on the rose water and adjust it to your liking so it doesn't end up tasting like a bag of potpourri. 



Video Details:
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 16 oz heavy/whipping cream
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup rose water
  • Pink food coloring - I used this kind
  1. Read your ice cream maker instructions and see if you need to do anything to prep. I learned the hard way that the bowl of my ice cream maker needed to freeze for about 24 hours before use. No ice cream maker? No problem. Here are a few ways to make it without one.
  2. Combine the milk and sugar in a large bowl and use hand mixer or aggressive arm force until the sugar is dissolved.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and continue mixing until combined. Add a little rose water at a time and taste it until it's the right amount of rose flavor you want. 
  4. Pour the mixture into the bowl of your ice cream maker and run it based on your ice cream maker's directions. Mine took about 35 minutes.
  5. You can either serve it immediately or stick her in the freezer for about an hour to firm up.


Woohoo! Did you make it? Did you love it? Tell me everrrrrrrything in the comments below.
