Summer is the perfect time to get creative in the kitchen with cool, refreshing eats. Even if turning on the oven is the last thing you want to do in a heatwave, you don't have to go without dessert. The ice cream maker is an incredibly useful kitchen tool in the summer for churning out a vast array of frozen desserts without breaking a sweat. Skip the usual chocolate and vanilla this time and opt for an unforgettable treat: margarita ice cream! This drink-inspired dessert is served in a salt rimmed glass and garnished with a slice of lime for the full sweet, salty, and tart experience of the cocktail. Since alcohol and salt are the two main ingredients in a margarita and also happen to melt ice cream, orange extract is used instead of triple sec so the tequila, flavor, and creaminess needn’t be diluted.

Dairy Free Vegan

Serves

Preparation

  1. Combine all ingredients together in a bowl and mix thoroughly with a whisk (no heat necessary). Freeze in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions.

Hi Kara, Just leave out the tequila. The agave nectar, lime, and orange nectar should give you that familiar margarita taste!
