Sorry kids, this ice cream is for adults only.
No-churn red wine, strawberry, and salted dark chocolate ice cream. Just dwell on that for a moment (feel free to use picture above ⬆️ for dwelling inspiration)….
Okay, you should probably stop licking the computer/phone screen now. It’s just a picture.
BUUUT you could be actually eating the real thing in just 4 hours!
Leave your ice cream maker in the cupboard because when it comes to crazy good ice cream, we don’t want to have to wait around for it. No pre-freezing your ice cream container, no cooking heavy cream and milk and then whisking in egg yolks hoping to create a no-clump custard, and definitely no waiting for your ice cream maker to finish churning before you can even get to the freezing process. This ice cream is happening now friends. Yeeaaasss!
I am thanking my mother-in-law for this ice cream inspiration (and sharing the ice cream with her too, obvs). My hubby, kiddos, and I have been living with my in-laws for the past 8 months after we decided to put our house on the market and watched it sell SUPER fast. It was at that point my hubby and I began to wonder where on earth we were going to move to. Might I suggest that knowing where you are going to move before you decide to sell your home can be a wise decision, but in our case we embraced it (somewhat anxiously, okay maybe very anxiously) as a new and exciting adventure. That adventure has temporarily led us to my in-laws house. And well, when you live with family for an extended period of time you learn things about each other that you didn’t know before. Like my mother-in-law likes to eat her ice cream with red wine poured over the top of it.
I saw my MIL in the kitchen one evening with this little cup of vanilla ice cream and spied her trying to covertly drizzle some red wine on top of it and escape from the kitchen without anyone noticing. I was like, “whoa Whoa WHOA! Not so fast lady!” This idea of red wine on ice cream has seriously never crossed my mind. But I think it’s genious!
And then one thing led to another…
–> What if I made ice cream with the red wine IN it?!
–> And salted dark chocolate is SOOO good with a glass of wine, so yes, chocolate must obviously be in the ice cream too.
–> But wait! Strawberries are still in season and well, strawberries & dark chocolate & red wine are like the Three Amigos of simple yet decadent dessert. I’m really liking where this is heading.
And then it happened.✨ A light, summery, red-wine infused ice cream with hints of strawberry and salted dark chocolate came into being.
And now friends, at least my 21 and over crew, I officially welcome you to the weekend. ❤️Print
A no-churn, light, summery, red-wine infused ice cream with hints of strawberry and salted dark chocolate. Takes only 10 minutes to prep and 4 hours to freeze before you can indulge in this adult-only ice cream.
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
- 1/2 cup red wine (I used Tempranillo)
- 1.4 oz salted dark chocolate, coarsely grated (I used 5 squares of Alter Eco brand “Deep Dark Sea Salt”)
- 3/4 cup strawberries, stems removed and diced into small pieces
- gf ice cream cones (optional)
- Add the heavy cream and vanilla to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment (or use a hand held electric mixer). Turn mixer on high and whip until stiff peaks form. Once stiff peaks have formed and with the mixer still running, slowly pour in the sweetened condensed milk.
- Turn mixer off, remove bowl, and gently stir in wine, strawberries and salted dark chocolate.
- Spoon the ice cream into a freezer safe container and freeze 4 hours or overnight.
- Serve in an ice cream cone!
