Just mix and chill, no ice cream maker needed for this exotic kulfi icecream!
Yay!!!!! My 200th post celebrating the 4th of July!
And what better way than to celebrate the perfect sunny, warm weekend with Lychee Kulfi decked up in an ice cream cone in red, white and blue! This exotic flavored kulfi will make you the star of the party!
And….shhhh….it is the easiest dessert to make, but will make you look like you slaved over it for hours!
Traditionally kulfi was made by boiling and reducing milk for hours on a low flame/ heat. But this version will take you under 10 minutes of prep work. Then pour and sit back and relax while it chills in the freezer 🙂 This Lychee Kulfi and the Mango Kulfi are my must haves for the summer!
Lychee Kulfi Ice cream
- 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk
- 1 (16 oz.) carton of heavy whipping cream
- 2 (20 oz.) cans of lychee, drained and finely minced
- 3~ 4 drops of rose essence
- Pinch of salt (optional)
- 1 (12 oz.) tub of whipped topping, like Cool Whip, defrosted
- Ice cream cones to serve.
- Small candy like mini m&ms to decorate
- Confectioner’s sugar +few drops of water to stick the candy to the cones
To make the Lychee Kulfi Icecream-
- In a bowl, simply combine the condensed milk, evaporated milk, heavy whipping cream, minced lychee, the rose essence and salt (if using). Beat with a hand or electric beater until mixed well and is frothy. Gently fold in the whipped topping and mix well.
- Pour into a freezing or glass container. Cover well and freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight.
- Meanwhile, to decorate the cones, make a paste of the confectioner’s sugar and a few drops of water. Use as glue to stick the mini m&ms or sprinkles or any candy of your choice. Inverting the cones on a plate makes it easy to stick the candy. Let it dry.
- To serve, scoop the frozen Lychee Kulfi into the decorated cones. Top with additional lychee, if desired.
- ½ cup of mixed ground nuts like cashews+ almonds+ pistachios can also be added to the mixture before freezing.
- This kulfi can be set in the traditional kulfi molds or popsicle molds or small plastic cups with aluminum foil covers and popsicle sticks in them. Make sure to cover them well before freezing
Enjoy! Have a great 4th of July week end ! I am also taking my Lychee Kulfi Icecream to the fabulous Angie’s Fiesta Friday celebrations!
