White Chocolate Almond Ice Cream

This White Chocolate Almond Ice Cream is made with no eggs. Since this ice cream is made without eggs it should enhance the flavors of the white chocolate and almonds.

It’s a very simple recipe with just 6 ingredients. It takes about 30 to prepare, 2 hours to chill and 20 minutes in the ice cream maker for soft frozen ice cream, completely frozen will take an additional 2-3 hours in the freezer. Yes, making homemade ice cream is involved, but it’s worth knowing what’s exactly in it, don’t you think.

Breyers homemade vanilla ice cream contains the following ingredients: milk, sugar, corn syrup, cream, whey, mono and diglycerides, carob bean gum, guar gum, carrageenan, natural flavor, annatto (for color), vitamin A palmitate and tara gum. What’s with all the gum? Carrageenan is an additive dirived from red seaweed that causes bloating, irritable bowel syndrome and other digestive issues.

All I have to say is:


3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup heavy cream
2 1/4 cups whole milk
2 teaspoons almond extract
6 oz white chocolate chips
1/2-1 cup slivered almonds


In a medium size saucepan over low heat add the sugar, cream and milk; cook until the sugar dissolves. Cook until the mixture will leave a film on the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and add in the white chocolate chips, stir until melted. Pour cream mixture into a bowl, add the almond extract and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours (or overnight).

Before pouring the mixture into the ice cream maker mix in the slivered almonds. Churn according to the manufacturer’s directions, 20-25 minutes. When done you will have soft frozen ice cream. Place ice cream in a freezer safe container and freeze for 2-3 hours. Yum Yum!
