Mastiha & Rose No-Churn Ice Cream

This creamy no-churn ice cream is flavored with mastic gum (mastiha) and aromatic rose water. Both flavors pair well together and are an elegant dessert to serve on a warm summer’s day. My favorite topping is sour cherry preserves along with some crushed salted pistachios, but, a dark chocolate drizzle would be great too!

This creamy no-churn ice cream is flavored with mastic gum (mastiha) and aromatic rose water. Both flavors pair well together and are an elegant dessert to serve on a warm summer's day. My favorite topping is sour cherry preserves along with some crushed salted pistachios, but, a dark chocolate drizzle would be great too!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cold heavy whipping cream
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon rose essence water
  • 1 teaspoon mastiha (mastic gum) crystals plus 1 teaspoon granulated sugar

Instructions

1

Grind mastiha crystals along with the sugar in a mortar and pestle or in a food processor until a powder is formed.

2

Combine the condensed milk along with the ground mastiha and rose water in a mixing bowl. Whisk to combine.

3

Pour the heavy whipping cream in the bowl of a tabletop mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Add the vanilla extract and whisk until the cream holds stiff peaks. About 3 -4 minutes.

4

Fold 1/3 of the whipped cream into the condensed milk mixture to lighten it.

5

Whisk the lightened condensed milk mixture into the whipped cream. Be careful not to deflate the mixture by whisking for too long.

6

Transfer the cream into an ice cream container or an 8-inch loaf pan. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze overnight or at least 6 hours.

7

Serve with your favorite toppings.

    Absolutely delicious recipe; a smooth, creamy dessert with subtle aroma and taste. I recently served this as an accompaniment to a home made tiramisu birthday cake and it was greatly enjoyed and commented on! Thank you for an original and exotic ice cream recipe, Dimitra. Next time I prepare a batch I will add a bit more mastiha and rose water, for a stronger ‘hit’ of these wonderful flavours.
