No churn elderflower ice cream with lime is light, refreshing, a delicious change from standard ice cream flavours and doesn’t need an ice cream machine.
Summer means ice cream season; a single scoop of homemade ice cream is a delicious way of giving a full stop to a meal without overindulgence, particularly if it’s a home made ice cream like this lovely no churn elderflower ice cream with lime.
No churn ice creams mean that you can enjoy all the benefits of home made ice cream: knowing the ingredients that have gone into the final dish, being able to experiment with your own flavours, and tuning the level of sweetness to your own palate, without the disadvantages of having to have an ice cream machine taking space in the cupboard or freezer.
We made this ice cream using our homemade elderflower cordial, but it works equally well with a ready made bottle. Serve with some fresh raspberries and crushed up ginger biscuits.
If you are feeling the heat and need to cool down in this gloriously hot spell we are having then I highly recommend my no churn elderflower and lime ice cream – which does not need a fancy machine – just an electric whisk to make. It is my debut recipe for UKTV’s Good Food Channel, who also interviewed me in their favourite bloggers series. If you want to know more my interview is here and I am in great blogging company with many of my favourite sites also featured.
No churn ice creams are very easy to make; elderflower and lime combine to make a really refreshing dish.

If you over whip the cream and have firm peaks, whip in a little milk to soften it.
