A sweet treat that will liven up any adult get together or just a casual Thursday night.
(okay Thursday afternoon, stop judging me)
This recipe adds a nice sweet wine and berries to your favorite dessert.
With all the fruit used in this recipe, you can almost argue the amount of calories and tell your friends its healthy!
Note: This recipe can get a little messy and a lot of fun! Make sure to clean the kitchen and not drink too much in the process.
Step 1: Gather Ingredients
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup whole milk
3/4 cups granulated sugar
6 large egg yolks
2 cups of soft rose wine
3 tablespoon triple sec (can be substituted with orange juice)
1 package fresh strawberries
1 package of raspberries
1/2 package blueberries
1 small ziplock bag
1 large ziplock bag
A generous amount of salt
(1 extra bottle of wine just for drinking)
Step 2: Heat Up Cream and Make Your Custard
In a large sauce pan over medium heat, bring cream and milk to a simmer.
While you are heating up your cream, whisk 3/4 cup of sugar and egg yolks until it looks like a weird lemon pudding.
Acknowledge that it's totally fine to accidentally spill half of it on the counter.
Add egg mixture to cream/milk and stir until mixture is thick and yellowish in color (about 5 minutes).
Step 3: Refrigerate
Pour the custard mixture into a baking dish.
Place in the refrigerator for 1 and a half hours to cool.
Acknowledge, that again, it's okay to spill half of it on the counter.
Hannah Montana sang "nobody's perfect" for a reason.
Step 4: Prepare Sangria Mixture
Pour 2 cups of wine and 3 tablespoons of triple sec into a large bowl.
Do not pour yourself a glass of wine because it is only 2 pm and you need to study.
Rinse and dry the fruit.
Cut the berries into bite size pieces.
Decide you deserve a glass because you've worked hard.
Gently place the fruit into the wine and allow to marinate for 1 hour.
Drink another glass of wine while you patiently wait.
Step 5: Strain the Berry Mixture
15 minutes before the custard is done cooling, ladle 1 cup of wine marinade from the berries into a measuring cup to save for later.
Tell yourself you can't drink it even though you've had a long week and wine always helps.
Yes, STACY, I know it's only Tuesday but I'M TRYING.
Smash the berries into small bits using a fork.
Do not start eating the berries because you need them for your icecream.
Strain the berries by gently pressing on them in a strainer.
Okay eat a few because they taste delicious and fruit is good for you!
Laugh/cry about the giant mess you are making.
Step 6: Make the Ice Cream
Pour the custard, a cup of the wine marinade, and the strained berries into bowl and mix.
Step 7: Fill Bags and Shake
Fill a small ziploc bag with the mixture.
Fill a larger ziploc bag with ice and add salt. Take a drink of the leftover marinade because it'll go bad if you don't drink it tonight.
Place the bag of custard/berry mix into the ziploc bag of ice and salt.
Make sure you close both bags well before shaking or Stacy will get mad about the mess you make on the floor.
Cover the bag with a hand towel to help not freeze your hands.
Shake until the mixture it reaches desired consistency. (5-10 minutes of shaking, get that arm workout)
Step 8: Clean the Kitchen and Enjoy Your Icecream
Get out a cute mug, fill with your icecream, top with spiked berries, and take pictures!
You may dig into your delicious icecream and facebook brag to your friends that you actually made something that wasn't microwavable. Enjoy.
