Hi Bold Bakers!

I am excited to share this recipe for Gingerbread Ice Cream with you. This year when Christmas rolls around, instead of serving up that expected pumpkin or pecan pie, your friends and family will absolutely love this indulgent Gingerbread Ice Cream. I don’t know about you but oftentimes around the holidays I end up with all kinds of extra cookies, nuts, spices, and purees. Instead of letting it all sit in my cupboard until next year I love to make my classic No-Machine Ice Cream base and add in what I have on hand. This Gingerbread Ice Cream is the perfect way to put those extra gingerbread cookies to use!

Just like all my other No Machine Ice Cream recipes, this one starts with just 2 ingredients you probably already have, heavy fresh dairy cream, and sweetened condensed milk. After whipping up the no fuss Ice Cream base, the flavor takes a holiday turn. I crushed up gingerbread men I had leftover, and added them to my ice cream. Feel free to throw in any extra cookie crumbs you have around, and that includes your gingerbread house.

After the gingerbread crumbs are mixed into the vanilla base it is transformed into something so rich, comforting, and full of that gingerbread flavor we all associate with the holidays! I can’t wait for you to give this a try!

Hi,Gemma,in my country,is quite difficult to get heavy cream,any substitute for heavy cream (can only find whipping cream in grocery store…..) I really like your homemade ice cream,and I want to make it….But ingredient is a major problem to me

When I clicked on the link, it went directly to the recipe for the White Chocolate & Cranberry Ice Cream instead of the Gingerbread Ice Cream. :'(
