You only need 3 ingredients, a high-powered blender and a freezer to make this amazing no churn, dairy-free watermelon ice cream. Naturally sweet watermelon is so refreshing on a summers day, and the coconut milk creates an irresistible creamy texture and adds tropical flavours.
To sweeten things up a little, we used AB Products Vanilla flavoured syrup. This syrup is a gem that originates from Paarl, where chef Abé Conradie developed a range of syrups and sauces for use in restaurant kitchens, and available at Pick’n’Pay, SPAR, and Checkers for use at home too. AB Products are used commercially to flavor desserts, coffee, smoothies, etcetera, and perfect to use at the comfort of your own home to swirl over or in desserts like ice cream, sorbets and milkshakes.
The ice cream takes about 3 hours to prepare, which is mostly waiting time, so this could well be your easiest dessert ever! The blending halfway the the freezing process eliminates the need for churning of an ice cream maker, and the result is a super soft and creamy ice cream!
Add all the ingredients to your Omniblend jug (the 2 liter jug with the tapered shape works best for this recipe). Blend from low-to-high for 60 seconds. Transfer to a loaf pan and place in the freezer for 2 hours and then remove. Break the frozen mixture into chunks and place back into the blender. Blend on high speed, using the tamper through the lid to push the ingredients into the blades until a creamy consistency is reached. Place back in a loaf pan or container and freeze for another 30 minutes to an hour to firm up.
Serve into bowls and enjoy!
