Every time I decide I will cutoff sugar from my diet, I get tempted and lured by some interesting dessert recipes. When it comes to ice cream, there is hardly anyone who can resist temptations. Ice cream is utterly creamy and melt in mouth delight. This year has been the ‘ice cream’ year for me as I have tried various varieties of it since onset of summer. I am not that fond of eating ice cream except for few selective flavors but my near and dear ones do like it which motivates me to try different varieties and when they give heads up it gives me immense satisfaction. Of course, who doesn’t like all the praises attached with all the hard work you have put in! It really makes my day happy happy.

Today I have brought you the smoothest and creamiest concoctions that can me made right into your kitchen with no effort at all. I could not stress on the fact that it tastes so so much like store bought ice cream. Before I go gaga about this ice cream I just want to let you know I didn’t want to make it in the first place because of its content – Coffee and Chocolate – which are not in my favorite list. Once it was made, I was very pleased and actually liked the taste of it. The secret (or not so secret) about this ice cream is a key ingredient – Mascarpone cheese. I have never tried my hands on with Mascarpone cheese except Tiramisu cake. After the outcome with this ice cream, I think I will try this ingredient more often in my dessert and specially with ice creams. The Mascarpone cheese leads to less or no churn and less work with great results. So let not go much into talking and start with the recipe. Do try it once and let me know your inputs and reviews.

Heavy Whipping cream, chilled
1 cup
Mascarpone Cheese
