Amaretto Ice Cream Recipe

This is some of the BEST ice cream I’ve ever made! EVER! I absolutely love this Amaretto Ice Cream with chocolate fudge swirls, mini chocolate chips and Amaretto pecans and I am so stoked that I actually still have some in my freezer! And what’s even better is that it’s real ice cream! Made with sugar, cream, milk, and Amaretto Liqueur.

I have to let you in on a little personal opinion of mine – there is no such thing as “lite” or “skinny” or “fat-free” ice cream. Ice CREAM is all about the cream, the heavy cream! It’s supposed to have at least 10% milk-fat.  If it doesn’t have  milk-fat, it’s NOT ice cream!

Do yourself a favor and skip any and all of the diet ice creams.

I am also not a big fan of no-churn ice creams. Sorry, but I am not a fan of the texture of it. I much prefer the mouth-feel of real churned ice cream.

Just do yourself a favor and get an ice cream maker. You’ll thank me for it in the long run!

I  have this KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment that I love! Yes, it takes up space in the freezer and you need to remember to pre-freeze it in advance, but for the price, I think it’s great.

Now, you get a Cuisinart 2-Quart Automatic Ice Cream Maker but it takes up space, and you still need to pre-freeze the metal bucket, and I don’t think that they make as much ice cream as the KA one.

However, if you’re a serious about your ice cream, you can always go big and get a compressor style maker like this Breville Smart Scoop Ice Cream Maker or this Whynter Ice Cream Maker. I’d love to have one of these!

Make this great ice cream in your ice cream maker and send me a thank you card!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Churn Time 30 minutes
Additional Time 6 hours
Total Time 6 hours 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 C sugar
  • 2 C heavy cream
  • 1 C whole milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 C Amaretto Liqueur
  • 1/4 C Amaretto Pecans

Instructions

  1. Whisk the eggs and sugar until pale and fluffy. Mix in the cream, milk, vanilla, and Amaretto.

  3. At the end of the mixing cycle, add in the mini chocolate chips and the amaretto pecans.
  4. Transfer the mixture into a freezer safe container and gradually add some hot fudge sauce to the layers. Don't mix it in, just add a few swirls as you add the layers of ice cream.
  5. Freeze overnight, scoop and serve.
  6. This ice cream will remain on the soft side due to the alcohol.

From the many recipes I think I will go with this one. Just to confirm, two whole eggs? Usually it's yolks only.

Yep. 2 whole eggs. This recipe doesn't start with a custard base. I've been making ice cream like this for years and it always turns out great!

This is a recipe i can totally get on board with- I love amaretto anything. The amaretto pecans really appeal to me, because I think nuts add the most fantastic texture to desserts, especially ice cream.

Stopping by from Showcase Your Talent Thursdays- thank you for sharing!

It was amazing!! The added pecans were a welcome flavor in the ice cream. I liked that they weren't hard and crunchy, but still gave it good mouthfeel.
