Easiest Homemade Ice Cream

1 Jan

In a last ditch effort to make something special for New Year’s Eve, I turned to a Nigella Lawson’s recipe, No Churn Margarita Ice Cream. Of course, I didn’t have every ingredient. Instead, I mixed half-and-half (instead of whipped heavy cream), lime juice, powdered sugar, and rum (instead of tequila and cointreau) in a plastic, lidded container.  I shook the container to introduce some air bubbles (cheater way of whipping or churning) and stuck it in the freezer. Over the next few hours, I shook it several times and allowed it to freeze.

A little before midnight, after approximately 5.5 hours of freezing, we had a zingy, somewhat silky ice cream version of the original daiquiri. The ice cream had fairly large ice crystals, so it wasn’t the smoothest, but it certainly was the easiest homemade ice cream.
