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 you Use Other Fruit Instead of Redcurrants?
I make this redcurrant ripple ice-cream with my standard base of white chocolate and condensed milk. I’ve made several other versions over the years. This means that if you can’t find redcurrant, it doesn’t matter at all. This ice-cream is delicious made with pretty much any tart summer fruit.
Red berries are 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.
