When my ice cream maker broke a few months ago, I was absolutely devastated! Adam and I had so much fun last summer making our own ice cream! I mean, I know that I could buy a new ice cream maker that isn't super expensive but honestly since I started making no-churn ice cream I feel confident not even needing one! 

Lately, I've been feeling pretty icky. Between being sick and dealing with stress, I've had some weird food cravings to go along with the emotional rollercoaster I've been riding. Keeping along with my new year resolution to snack smarter, I made this yummy, no-churn vanilla hazelnut ice cream. It's light, refreshing, and incredibly easy to make (with only a few ingredients). 

Light Vanilla Hazelnut Ice Cream (No Churn)
*makes 4 servings, overnight recipe

  • 1/2 cup of International Delight Simply Pure Vanilla coffee creamer
  • 1/2 cup of International Delight Simply Pure Hazelnut coffee creamer
  • 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup of low-fat milk
  1. In a small saucepan, heat the coffee creamers and sugar over medium heat. Whisk often and stop once it starts bubbling around the edges of the pan. Turn the heat down to low.
  2. Beat an egg in a separate bowl and pour about half of the heated creamer into the beaten egg. Whisk well as you pour it in.
  3. Pour the egg-creamer mixture back into the saucepan and whisk until it starts to thicken on low heat. This may take about 5 minutes. 
  4. Turn the heat off and pour the contents of the saucepan into a bowl. Allow it to cool in the refrigerator for about 3-4 hours (do not freeze yet). 
  5. Remove the bowl from the refrigerator. Whisk in the milk and prepare to put it into the freezer.
  6. Prepare a freezer-safe container to fill with ice cream.
  7. Pour the contents of the bowl into your freezer-safe container. I prefer to use disposable aluminum bread loaves with the plastic covers!
  8. Freeze overnight and it's ready to enjoy the next day!

Adam and I enjoyed a few scoops of our Light, Vanilla Hazelnut Ice Cream while we were catching up on our favorite shows earlier this week. Some of our favorite shows have come back for a new season and we've been really trying to hold back from streaming all of the episodes at once (which feels almost impossible--the urge to just watch the whole season is tempting for sure). 

Sometimes we have just got to indulge ourselves by relaxing for a few hours to watch our shows cuddled together on the couch. 

Indulgence is a funny thing--if I convince myself that it's okay to eat something, then it doesn't feel like an indulgence. But at the same time, when I whip up some light ice cream (like this vanilla hazelnut ice cream), it still tastes like I'm indulging even though I know I am still snacking smarter than some of my other choices in the past.

Speaking of indulgence, these International Delight Simply Pure coffee creamers have become a new staple in our house! I have been enjoying baking with these creamers to add extra flavor, and lately, they have been my go-to creamers for my every day cold brew iced coffee as well. 

Even though these coffee creamers are usually meant for our morning coffee, I can't help but experiment and find new ways to incorporate them into recipes! Since International Delight Simply Pure coffee creamer is made with real milk, cream, and sugar it serves as a great substitute for some of my baking recipes.

Be sure to be on the lookout for International Delight Simply Pure at Walmart--that is where I picked up ours (and some stores even have a special in-store display). After you've got your creamer, check out some of these other recipes that feature coffee creamers on the International Delight Simply Pure website!

  3. What a great idea to use creamer to make hazelnut ice cream! I could imagine sitting on the couch watching tv at night with a bowl of this ice cream...and a decaf coffee, of course! #client
