  • Raspberries: Fresh or frozen, both work perfectly for this recipe.
  • Granulated Sugar: Sweetens the ice cream and ensures a smooth consistency.
  • Lemon Juice: Enhances the flavor of the raspberries.
  • Heavy Whipping Cream: The high-fat content of heavy whipping cream is necessary to achieve that luscious, creamy texture.
  • Vanilla Extract: Adds a depth of flavor.
  • Salt: Balances out the sweetness.
  • Vodka: A secret ingredient that lowers the freezing point, resulting in a smooth and creamy texture.
  • Chocolate: Instead of using run-of-the-mill chocolate chips, chop up a bar of bittersweet chocolate to achieve a mixture of fine shards and chunks throughout the ice cream.

Make the raspberry puree.

  • In a saucepan, combine the raspberries, sugar, and lemon juice.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, then reduce to a simmer. Cook until the raspberries are soft and juicy, and the sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Transfer the hot raspberries to a blender and blend for about 30 seconds, until liquefied.
  • Strain the fruit puree through a fine mesh strainer to remove the seeds, leaving you with a seedless raspberry puree. You should have approximately 2 cups of puree.
  • Chill the puree for several hours or overnight until thoroughly chilled.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does the vodka do in ice cream?

The addition of 1 tablespoon of vodka to homemade ice cream acts as a magic touch. It lowers the freezing point of the mixture, resulting in a smooth and creamy texture without any pesky ice crystals.

Do you have a no-churn raspberry ice cream recipe?

Indeed, we do! For a no-churn version of this raspberry ice cream, follow these steps:

  • Simmer the raspberries and lemon juice with just 1/4 cup of sugar. Frozen raspberries work best for this method.
  • Puree the mixture, strain it, and chill it as directed in the original recipe.
  • Whisk together the chilled raspberry puree, vanilla extract, salt, and 1 can of sweetened condensed milk.
  • In a separate bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the cold heavy whipping cream until soft peaks form.
  • Gently fold the raspberry mixture into the whipped cream until well combined, and then fold in the chopped chocolate.
  • Spread the mixture into a freezer-safe container and freeze for at least 10-12 hours, or overnight, until firm enough to scoop.
