Owning an ice cream maker means you can create specialty ice cream flavors at home, for a fraction of what you'd pay at your local ice cream shop. This almond ice cream is a real treat, bursting with chunks of raspberries, slivered almonds, and dark chocolate pieces. Source: Diabetic Living Magazine

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk together almond milk, egg yolks, honey, and cornstarch in a medium saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until the custard coats the back of a spoon (do not boil). If necessary, strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl to remove any lumps; stir in almond extract and salt. Cover and chill for 8 to 24 hours.

  • Pour the chilled mixture into a 1 1/2-quart ice cream freezer. Freeze according to manufacturer's directions. Stir in raspberries, chopped chocolate, and almonds. Transfer the mixture to a 2-quart freezer container. Cover and freeze for 4 hours before serving.


Equipment: 1 1/2-quart ice cream freezer, 2-quart freezer container
