Redcurrant Ripple Ice-Cream with White Chocolate

Redcurrant Ripple Ice-Cream with White Chocolate.

Ice Cream, Summer | 22nd June 2014 | By

When the sun is shining and the day is warm, there’s nothing quite like a scoop or two of delicious ice-cream. This homemade redcurrant ripple ice-cream is easy to make and the good news is, there’s no need to churn it. So if you don’t have an ice-cream maker, you can still make no fuss ice-cream.

Here’s another recipe I’ve been meaning to write up for a very long time. Our redcurrants are growing well, but there not quite ready to harvest yet. I’m just hoping that the birds don’t get there before us! Luckily, I don’t need this year’s crop to make this redcurrant ripple ice-cream, because we still have some left in the freezer from last year. Amazing isn’t it?

Redcurrant Ripple & White Chocolate Ice-Cream

I use the same basic no-churn recipe to make most of my ice-cream. It’s so simple to make that it’s become a firm favourite. It’s also easy to adapt so I’ve made several different versions over the years. This redcurrant ripple & white chocolate ice-cream is wonderfully sweet, smooth and creamy. It has lovely bursts of tartness coming through from the fruit. But strangely, both CT and I think it tastes more like raspberries than redcurrants. I’d love to know what you think.

Can I Use Other Fruit Instead of Redcurrants?

This no-churn white chocolate ice-cream is so simple to make it’s become a firm favourite. Apart from this redcurrant ripple ice-cream, I’ve made several other versions. If you can’t find redcurrants, don’t worry. This ice-cream is delicious made with pretty much any tart summer fruit. Red berries good, because the red turns pink and combines rather beautifully with the white chocolate ice-cream. But really, that’s just a preference on my part.

I’m entering this redcurrant ripple & white chocolate ice cream into BSFIC over at Kavey Eats as the theme, this month, is fruit. This is a super challenge which inspires some fabulous creations. I keep meaning to enter but very rarely manage it. So I’m pleased to be able to do so this time.

    I’ve just spent the last hour perusing various no churn ice creams, determined to make the most of the glorious weather this week. What a lovely flavour combination Choclette, perfect for watching with the tennis this coming week

      Thanks Kate. Ice-cream is just what is needed in this weather – tennis or no tennis 😉 This is a great recipe and the redcurrants can be submitted with raspberries, strawberries or any other summer fruit.

      Thank you LL. It’s strange, in the winter I don’t want to eat it at all and in the summer I can’t get enough of it.

    Choclette, I would love this! But where I live (US) I can rarely buy redcurrants. On the rare occasion when I spot them, the teeniest tiniest little container of them costs an outrageously ridiculous amount, so …

      Yes same here Jean. I don’t think I’ve ever seen them for sale. You need to get friendly with a gardening neighbour I reckon!

      Do give it a try Sandra – it’s so simple to make and so delicious. If you use raspberries, you don’t even need to cook them – just puree and sieve.

    What a great recipe, I may have to try that with my blackcurrants when they are ready as my ice cream machine packed in (the bowl started to leak blue stuff – eek!) and it’s the third I’ve had which has done the same, so am reluctant to buy another one.

      The first one of these types of ice-cream I ever made was with blackcurrants – blackcurrants and rose syrup. The tart currants work so well with this. Recipe is on the blog Janice.
