Needless to say I have even less time in the kitchen. Oh, he is very good and sits by the back door, for about 5 minutes. Once he becomes bored with that he wants to go "outside" every 5 minutes or starts tormenting the cats. (Don't get me started on the "barking" as soon as I get on the phone.) LOL
So when I was in the mood for ice cream, I had to think fast. I had seen a quick ice cream on TV, but I could not remember who actually did it. All I could remember was that their was about 1/2 cup of juice, 1 cup of Confecctioners' Sugar and 2 cups of heavy whipping cream. That was good enough for me.
The interesting part of this method is that you whip the whole thing together, to incorporate air, then toss it in the freezer. The idea is the same as making traditional ice cream with a dasher, which incorporates the air, and ice, just a little less hands on. Perfect when you are in a hurry.
So, if you are ready to embark upon a no fuss no muss path to Iced "whipped" Cream deliciousness, this one is a winner. Granted, the texture is a little more like an Ice Milk, but I like a slightly "icy" texture to my ice cream. I find it more refreshing., especially since I am making Key Lime. YUM.
My only regret is that I did not save out a slice of lime for a garnish... oops. It simply takes too many key limes to get 1/2 cup of juice. Alas, there were none left.
