Homemade Horchata Ice Cream (Plus 3 Flavor Variations)

In the comic books, Superman’s weakness is kryptonite; while in the Bible, Samson’s is his hair. Now, I’m not saying that I’m as strong or as brave as either hero, but I do share my own unique weakness: ice cream. (Of course, I share this with you in confidence, so please don’t use it against me.)

It’s not just because I love ice cream and can’t resist the temptation to indulge in it, but because I’m lactose intolerant and still can’t quit it. Being anywhere around the dessert is definitely a problem for me, but a “good problem” to have, nonetheless.

To add to this “good problem” that constantly haunts me, I recently opened up my Instagram timeline and saw that Eloise Head dropped a new three-ingredient recipe for Nutella ice cream on her FitWaffle page. The results looked great and, surprisingly, the steps were quite simple.

To start, whisk one can of condensed milk with two cups of double cream until thick and smooth. Then, pour a third of the mixture into a tin, adding Nutella before repeating this process twice more, until the mixture is done and about 9 ounces of Nutella have been added. Swirl the Nutella throughout the pan with a knife, double wrap the pan in plastic wrap, and place in the freezer for eight hours.

Seems easy enough, right? So easy, in fact, that I may just have to bite the bullet and give this recipe a try tonight. Wish me (and my stomach) luck!

Not in the mood for ice cream tonight? These recipes for cinnamon roll banana bread or Nutella fluff may be a better substitute for you.
