No Churn: Figs-Saffron Ice Cream: creamy, flavorful and delicious in every bite, this ice-cream recipe is your answer to a quick festive delight.
Figs-Saffron Ice Cream is Perfect for Festive Parties/Diwali
Figs-Saffron Ice Cream is Totally Yummmm!
Who doesn’t love ice-creams but the only thing that stops us from making them at home is the tedious process for that creamy bite!
Seriously, who’s gonna keep churning the ice-cream mix again and again or the other option is to buy an ice-cream maker.
Which I would absolutely do, but what do I do till then?
That’s exactly when we ended up making this Figs-Saffron Ice Cream which is No Churn and a Perfect Festive Dessert.
And with the approaching festive season what better dessert that pleases the whole family!!!
Absolutely creamy and wait for the best part – takes just 10 minutes to make and 40 minutes to freeze, now that’s what I call a festive delight!
I’ve been making ice-creams at home for the last 2-3 years and yes, I would definitely want to buy an ice-cream maker (always excited to add that one more gadget).
Someday but till then I’m gonna enjoy this delicious delight one spoon at a time 😉
This Figs-Saffron Ice Cream is also the answer to many of my friends asking for a non-traditional Indian sweet.
Also known as mithai (ladoos, barfi, rasgulla, jalebi, etc) but something that goes with Indian or any other festive theme.
This ice-cream has all the Indian flavors going and is equally easy to make. Think Flavors Like:
Some of you might be worried if this homemade ice-cream would have any crystals or that flakey icy thing going on and the answer is absolutely not.
The mixture of coconut milk (full fat) and condensed milk (known as milkmaid in India) gives it a similar texture as of whipped cream which doesn’t crystalize.
The result is a smooth and creamy ice-cream.
What I love most about these no-churn ice-creams is the ability to customize the flavors as per your taste or think mixing all sorts of ingredients like candies / cookies / syrups / fruits / nuts / spices ….. just about bazillion things.
As I write this post, I’m almost done devouring the last bite of this yummy deliciousness and I’d be heading out to get the ingredients for another batch of this ice-cream.
I’m making this Figs-Saffron Ice Cream for our Diwali Festivities along with few other favorite recipes (that I would share soon).
Keep an eye and check back as it’s gonna be one delicious party.
