Coconut-Almond Fudge Ripple Ice Cream {No Machine Needed} ~ #IceCreamWeek



Thank you for stopping by my second post for #IceCreamWeek!  Today I'm happy to bring you Coconut-Almond Fudge Ripple Ice Cream, modeled after one of my favorite candy bars ... if you know what I mean.

And so ...

Welcome to #IceCreamWeek! 
Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Jen of Juanita’s Cocina have teamed up with more than 20 of their blog friends to bring you a week full of ice cream treats, including a special ice cream giveaway! Prepare to have your taste buds tempted with some of the best ice cream treats around! Make sure you enter the giveaway for a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker and two fabulous ice cream cookbooks so that you can join in on the ice cream fun!

Now, this Coconut-Almond Fudge Ripple Ice Cream actually all started with the easy 3-Ingredient Creamy Coconut Ice Cream I shared on Monday ...  See, when my husband tasted the Creamy Coconut Ice Cream ... which he looooooved, by the way ... he said, "You need to make this with some chocolate in it."

And I thought ... Well, of course I do!

And so I did.


But then, modeled off a favorite candy bar, I put some almonds in too.

And it's divine.

To create this easy almond fudge ripple version yourself, first whip up a batch of homemade coconut ice cream with some sliced almonds in it, and place it in a freezer-safe container.  I use a bread pan and then just cover it with foil or plastic wrap.  I've found that using a bread pan makes the ice cream mixture the perfect depth for the next step ... the swirl.


Next, plop on a little bit of hot fudge ice cream topping ... not heated up, of course.  Or, you can drizzle on a bit of chocolate syrup.  I've tried it both ways and both are good.


Then, take a knife and drag and twist the knife through the chocolate to swirl it in.  You just want to drag and twist ... not stir ... to get the swirl effect.  {Oh, and just fyi ... chocolate syrup swirls in a little bit easier than hot fudge topping.}


See? ... when you scoop some out ... chocolate swirls!  Pretty and yummy.




And just like the plain coconut version, this stuff is soooooo good.  I mean seriously, my husband and I are in love with this newly-discovered-for-us way to make ice cream.  Who knew such yumminess could be so easy?

Ingredients
  • 1 c. (8 oz.) whipping cream or heavy cream
  • 3/4 c. (6 oz.) cream of coconut*
  • 1/2 c. sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1/4 c. sliced almonds

Directions
  1. Chill a large mixing bowl and the beaters of an electric mixer (or whisk attachment of a stand mixer) in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes. Remove from the refrigerator and pour the whipping cream into the chilled bowl. Beat on high speed until medium-to-stiff peaks form. Gently stir in the cream of coconut, sweetened coconut, and sliced almonds.
  2. Spoon into a freezer-safe container. Drizzle the chocolate syrup over the coconut mixture. Drag and twist a knife through the chocolate to create swirls (do not stir).
  3. Cover and freeze for about 4 hours or overnight.
* The stuff found in the drink mixer section of the grocery store, not coconut milk.

Enjoy!

  2. This is my favorite candy bar too! And thanks for the swirl lesson, I was hoplessly lost when I tried to do it on an older recipe--just plopped it in the ice cream maker and it didn't swirl, just mixed. Oops.

  10. You're a genius! And I'm not just saying that because I made my own version of almond/coconut/fudge ripple a few weeks ago! (Great minds obviously think alike.) I love that it's no-churn and that you used cream of coconut!

  11. I just discovered easy, no-machine required ice cream this summer too and it's changed my life! I can't wait to try the coconut ice cream, and you can bet I'm going to be adding almonds and swirling it with chocolate. This looks amazing!
