The thought, “margagogo needs a food stylist” is going to pop into your head when you see this picture.

Margarita Ice Cream

But if you taste Nigella Lawson’s No Churn Margarita Ice Cream, you’ll forget how bad this picture looks. Your thoughts will run more along the lines of “Wow”, “Yum”, and “Holy Margarita Cow this stuff is great.”

Then you’ll add it to your Cinco de Mayo menu.

It’s easy to make – making me a fan of both the ice cream and the chef.

First the chef: Nigella Lawson puts great pictures in her books. Yes, I like to see pictures before I decide what I’m going to cook. It helps me to know what I’m aiming for.  And I’m a fan because when she says a recipe’s easy, it is. With my limited cooking skills I’ve been able to repeat her results and wow my friends.

Now the Ice Cream: When I made Margarita Ice Cream for dessert on New Year’s Eve, I got raves from my guests. Some of them aren’t margarita drinkers, some don’t really like sweets and the crazier ones don’t really crave ice cream and one isn’t a drinker at all.  Yet, everyone loved Margarita Ice Cream.

So check out Nigella Lawson’s site for all sorts of good stuff. I copied her recipe here (and did my best to convert measurements but please check them!)

Nigella Lawson’s No Churn Margarita Ice Cream

  • 125ml lime juice (1/2 Cup)
  • 2 x 15ml tablespoons Tequila (2T)
  • 3 x 15ml tablespoons Cointreau or Triple sec (3T)
  • 150g icing sugar or powdered sugar (1 1/4 Cups)
  • 500ml double cream (2 Cups Heavy Cream)

Margarita + Ice Cream = Cinco de Mayo, Summer and Celebration!

Holy Margarita Cow – This Stuff is Great!
