This no churn ice cream has all the flavours of a classic Mexican cocktail making this a great ice cream treat for adults.

I have made the margarita ice cream recipe from Nigella Lawson a low carb ice cream by using a low carb sweetener and orange extract. This is an easy recipe to make as it does not require an ice cream maker but is just as smooth and creamy.

How to make a Margarita Ice Cream

Make sure you use a good quality heavy cream. In the UK I would use cream called double cream. This is thicker than whipping cream and in some countries is called thickened cream. If all fails use whipping cream.

To make this margarita ice cream it is as simple as mixing the ingredients and whipping the cream. Chill until firm and eat. The tequila helps ice crystals from forming and makes a creamy ice cream for adults.

    Are you sure on the 3 TABLESPOONS measurement of Orange Extract? That seems like a like of extract, like an entire bottle. Sounds like a great recipe.

      Yes Pat. It’s correct. I make my own orange extract which may be a bit weaker so you may want to add a bit at a time and taste it first. The unhealthy version uses Cointreau!
