Have you ever wished for everything you eat to be Nutella flavoured? I definitely have. Even though it may not be possible to have Nutella flavoured stew or gravy, nothing can stop us from having Nutella flavoured ice cream. Here are a few really easy recipes for Nutella ice creams and they all taste perfectly heavenly. Try them out and treat your family and friends with the best ice cream ever.
The first recipe on the list is Nutella gelato. This recipe might take a few trials before you get it perfect but the end product is truly fantastic. You will need:
- 2 cups of milk
- 1 cup of thick cream
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 tsp vanilla flavoring (optional)
- 1 and a quarter cups of sugar, and of course
- 1 cup of Nutella
First, the milk, cream and a cup of sugar need to be heated in a pot on a medium flame to make it thick enough to leave a coating on the back of your stirring spoon. Beat the egg yolks into a light frothy mix with a little bit of the milk and cream mix and a quarter cup of sugar added to it. Pour this egg mix into the warm milk and cream mix and add the cup of Nutella into it. You could also add the vanilla in this step. Keep stirring this mix until all the Nutella melts. Once this is done, pour it into a freezer safe container and put it into the fridge. Once this mix is chilled, pour it into the ice cream maker and wait for it to get a semi frozen softy like consistency. Pour this into a freezer safe container and put it into the fridge to harden to a gelato consistency. Scoop it out into ice cream bowls and decorate it as you please and enjoy.
Nutella Ice Cream
The second and much simpler recipe will require no eggs. So if you are a vegetarian or allergic to eggs, this Nutella ice cream recipe is a safe option and it’s just as delicious as the gelato. You will need:
- 1 cup Nutella
- 3 ripe bananas (chopped)
- 2 cups of thick cream and
- 2 tbsp of cocoa powder (optional)
Add bananas and nutella into a blender and run it till it turns into a soft, even puree. Sift the cocoa powder into the mix at this step if you want to add a little extra chocolaty flavour to it. Lastly, add the cream and mix it well into the puree. Pour this mix into a freezer safe container and keep it in the fridge till it is chilled. The next few steps are the same as the previous recipe.
Nutella Ice Cream – No Cream or Eggs
The third and by far the easiest Nutella ice cream recipe of all happens to be the one with no cream at all. Here’s what you will need:
- 1 cup Nutella
- 6 ripe bananas (chopped)
Can you guess how simple this is going to be? Add the two ingredients into a blender and blend it to a fine puree. Pour this mix into a freezer safe container or into Popsicle forms and place it in the fridge till its frozen solid. If you like, you could add additional flavours like cinnamon or cocoa powder into the puree. The bananas could also be replaced with papayas or mangoes for variations in flavour but the classic bananas and Nutella combination is the best.
So these are all the lovely, easy Nutella ice cream recipes you could try out at home. Feed it to your family and friends and watch them devour it with delight.
