This no machine ice cream is based this recipe on an ice cream I made last year. It was a mere coincidence that I made Dulce de Leche a few days before as well as the Cherry Compote, so I decided to combine them.
In the morning when I decided to make the ice cream I was debating with myself if I would make it with Dulce De Leche or with Cherry Compote or both.
I asked that question on Facebook and some friends suggested that I should make them separately. My mind was tending towards using the Cherry Compote but before the final stage I tried the cream and it didn’t seem sweet enough, so that’s when I decided to add the Dulche De Leche in the cream.
I added and tasted until it reached the desired sweetness and there was just a little bit left, so I used that as decoration.
I know that I always say that I wish I had an Ice Cream machine, whenever I comment on someone’s Ice cream post but although it doesn’t cost much, I have no space in my kitchen to add another gadget and even if I did, I am still thinking if I should buy one, as I know that I will be making ice cream every day, as the possibilities for creativity are limitless and it’s time to watch my weight!!
- 1 can of sweetened condensed milk, which will be made into Dulce de Leche
- 200 grams of Greek yogurt
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 1/2 cup cherry preserve or compote (without the syrup)
- 1 litre milk
- 3 egg yolks
- 5 heaped tbsp sugar
- 5 heaped tbsp corn flour (starch)
- 1 pinch of salt
- 250 ml heavy cream (35%)
- 1 tbsp powdered sugar
- Prepare whipping cream and refrigerate. See instructions here.
- Prepare pastry cream, cover with cling film and set aside to cool. See instructions here.
- In a mixer bowl add pastry cream, whipped cream and yoghurt and beat for five minutes at full speed.
- Place in a container with lid and freeze.
- After about 1 hour check your ice cream and see if it has frozen near the edges.
- With a hand mixer beat well until all the crystals have become soft cream again.
- Repeat the same procedure three more times.
- Transfer the ice cream in the mixer bowl, add half of the dulce de leche and beat it well.
- Add the cherries scattering them here and there.
- Put the remaining dulce de leche in a piping bag and decorate.
- Remove from the freezer 15 minutes before serving and serve with cherry compote.
The Cherry Spoon Sweet and Cherry Compote I made have long finished but I suppose you will be seeing more recipes with cherries as this week I made some more.
