Check out Ice Cream Creations

by Jehan Peters at




Summer is upon us.  It is sweltering hot in Atlanta and the perfect time for frozen concoctions.   I’ve been consuming a lot of ice cream lately, thanks to the weekly visits to the ice cream parlor with my son.   Here’s a collection of ice cream creations to try this summer.Grape nut ice cream-1

This past weekend instead of venturing out, I decided to try a no churn ice cream recipe that’s popped up all over the internet.   All you need is two simple ingredients and a mixer and you have smooth, luscious ice cream. Grape nut Ice Cream-1 (2) I made a simple vanilla ice cream the first time to test the recipe and found that it was a bit sweet.   The texture was so smooth and had less ice crystals than regular ice cream which made it even better.

This weekend I made another batch, this time adjusting the amount of condensed milk and adding Grape nuts.  It was perfection!   I chose Grape nut because it was one my husband’s favorite ice creams and he introduced it to me some 16 years ago when we first met.  Grape nut Ice Cream-1-4Apparently it’s quite popular in Jamaica, where he’s from.   I love how versatile this recipe is and will definitely be in heavy rotation this summer.

No Churn Grape Nut Ice Cream

2 cup heavy whipping cream

1 cup sweetened condensed milk

½ tsp vanilla extract

½ cup Grape Nuts

Place cold heavy whipping cream in a large bowl and using the whisk attachment on a mixer, whip until it reaches a stiff peak.  You will know when it’s at a stiff peak when you lift the mixer out of the cream it will form a peak that stands straight up.   Next fold in condensed milk and vanilla; do not beat or this will cause the whipped cream to lose volume.   Then stir in Grape Nuts.   Place in a large bowl and smooth the top then cover.  Place in a freezer for at least 6 hours or until frozen.   To serve, let sit at room temperature for a few minutes, then scoop.
