I've been wanting to make ice cream, but I don't have an ice cream maker. I found a recipe for easy chocolate ice cream at http://www.davidlebovitz.com/archives/2007/11/the_easiest_cho.html (check it out if you're interested). The recipe uses alcohol to keep the ice cream mixture from forming large ice crystals, allowing you to put it in the freezer and forget about it. I loved the idea so much, I've been experimenting with different types of alcohol and different flavors (I'm not a big fan of bananas and I don't have any Bailey's or Rum in the house). Below are my two most successful creations (the others were too alcoholic or just wrong).

Chocolate Berry Ice Cream

4 oz semisweet chocolate
1 1/4 cup milk of your choice
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup tequila
1/4 cup jam (I used 50/50 homemade blackberry raspberry jam)
Sugar to taste (I used 1/4 cup)

1. Melt the chocolate with the milk (I use the microwave).

2. Blend everything in the blender.

3. Pour into a container, cover, and freeze (I leave it overnight). The longer you freeze it the harder it gets, naturally. Also, if you stir it every hour or so (depending on how cold your freezer is) it'll be softer.

4. Dig in and enjoy.



Strawberry Margarita Ice Cream

1 cup strawberries (fresh or frozen)
1 cup milk of your choice
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup tequila
1/4 cup strawberry margarita mix
Sugar to taste (I used 2/3 cup)

1. Blend everything in a blender.

2. Pour into a container, cover, and freeze (like with the other).

3. Enjoy!



Sorry I don't have any pictures, but I just had to share the recipes. I'd love any feedback and I hope you enjoy.

They sound yummy. I know if I were to show these to my husband he would make them in a heartbeat.  I'm so going to have to try these at our next family gathering. Thanks for the recipes.
