No-Churn Pomegranate Ice Cream



Summer is here in California, so this was high on my list of treats to make. After seeing this in Nigella Express and not owning an ice cream maker (yet anyways), I thought this would be perfect! I went out on a search to find pomegranates, but never saw them. So I used pomegranate juice, and seeds that I found at Trader Joe's. For this recipe, 3/4 C juice (Am I missing something here? The recipe calls for 3 Cups of juice in the list, but 3/4 C when mixing it) I zested 2 limes and added the zest in with the juice. I found this to be almost dry and crumbly when scooped, but don't let that fool you! This is cool and creamy and with the lime, is just fantastic!

No-churn pomegranate ice cream (with fresh pomegranates)
• 2 pomegranates
• 1 lime
• 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
• 2 cups heavy cream

No-churn pomegranate ice cream (with pomegranate juice)
• 3 cups of pomegranate juice (Pom)
• 1 lime
• 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
• 2 cups heavy cream


Fresh pomegranates
Juice the pomegranates and the lime, straining the juices into a bowl. You will have approximately ¾ cup of pomegranate juice. Reserve the pomegranate seeds for garnish.
Add the powdered sugar and whisk to dissolve.
Whisk in the cream and keep whisking until soft peaks form in the pale pink cream.
Spoon and smooth the ice cream into a rigid plastic container with a tight-fitting lid and freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight. Scatter with pomegranate seeds when you eat it.

Pomegranate juice
Use three quarters of a cup Pom and a quarter cup of lime juice. Add the powdered sugar and whisk to dissolve.
Whisk in the cream and keep whisking until soft peaks form in the pale pink cream.
Spoon and smooth the ice cream into a rigid plastic container with a tight-fitting lid and freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight. Scatter with pomegranate seeds when you eat it.
