Homemade Ice Cream without an ice cream maker - Mascarpone Ice Cream

In early March, I made one of my favourite desserts, tiramisu. As there was some leftover “preparation”, I took the opportunity to make a homemade ice cream without using an ice cream maker.

This ice cream is our favourite, very fragrant and unctuous and not too sweet: to eat and cry for more!!

I promise you that this homemade ice cream is super-fast and, above all, it’s too yummy!! After you have tried it, you will never buy industrial ice cream again!

You can enjoy it with any of these toppings: raspberry coulis, melted dark chocolate, whipped cream, chocolate chips, crushed grilled walnuts, raisins macerated in rum… or like me, with macerated strawberries in syrup.

So here we go. Ready to start?

Ingredients
500g mascarpone
4 eggs
100g sugar
1 untreated lemon (zest)
*Optional: 250g fresh strawberries

Preparation
In a bowl, mix the egg yolks with 50g of sugar until frothy; then add the mascarpone and the lemon zest.

In another bowl, beat the egg whites with the remaining 50g of sugar, then stir them gently, with a spatula, into the rest of the preparation.

Once finished, pour the preparation into a Tupperware and place the preparation in the freezer. Every 30 minutes, for 3 to 4 hours, remove the ice cream from the freezer and mix with a spoon. Thus, the ice cream remains smooth and does not form unpleasant crystals.

*Optional: wash and cut the strawberries in four, add 2 tbsps. of freshly squeezed orange juice and 1 tbsp. of sugar. Reserve in the fridge.

Et voilà, job done.

  4. I have seen many no-churn ice cream recipes using sweetened condensed milk but never mascarpone. Wonderful to learn this and I bet this was such a silky ice cream. Love your suggestions on how to enjoy it. Great use of leftover ingredients!

  8. That does not sound too hard. And delicious. Today I will go to the market and buy some sorbet, maybe several flavors. So good for this hot weather we are having.

  9. The mascarpone ice cream sounds divine! I really like mascarpone frosting on cakes so I am sure that I would love the ice cream as well, and it is such a perfect flavor to serve with juicy strawberries.
