Praline Ice Cream has to be one of my very favorite ice cream flavors I’ve been making this summer. I know it is going to be one of those that extends well into the fall and holiday season, too.
Making this praline ice cream does take just a bit longer than many of the other ice cream recipes that I’ve shared with you, but boy is it worth it! You start by making my family’s favorite Southern Pralines. I recommend that you make these babies when you have just eaten so that you won’t be tempted to eat them well before you need them for the ice cream!
But hey, luckily those Southern Pralines are easy as can be to make so another batch is just a few minutes away. Right? You just gotta do what ya gotta do!
Speaking of which, excuse the few photos I have of this ice cream. Little Buddy helped hold the ice cream cone long enough for me to take my photos for this recipe. After each photo, he’d say, “now can I eat it?”
“Just another photo or so and then you can.”
“Now? I think you’ve got plenty.”
And you know, I knew you’d understand. Eleven year old boys and ice cream cones don’t wait long.
Here’s my Praline Ice Cream recipe. Hope you love it.
- 1 recipe Southern Pralines
- 2 cups whole milk
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Prepare Southern Pralines as instructed in that recipe. Set aside to cool. While cooling, begin preparing ice cream base.
- Mix together milk, whipping cream, sugar, salt and vanilla. Pour into container of ice cream maker and prepare as instructed by ice cream maker.
- Roughly chop Southern Pralines and add into ice cream maker container when ice cream is almost ready. Alternately, you can simply mix praline pieces into the ice cream once it has been made.
- Place in an airtight container in the freezer for at least an hour to get more firm for serving.
