Milk Chai Tea Ice Cream

Chai Ice cream is a delicious Ice cream that has a distinct and refreshing taste. It’s my favorite ice cream I’ve ever made. It’s made without the use of an ice cream maker!

This ice cream with chai has a very subtle chai taste. I served it with an orange juice drizzle to give an extra kick of citrus sweetness that complements the spices of tea brewed with chai, but without the drizzle, this dessert will not disappoint.

I came up with this dessert because I love some zing to traditional desserts. I love chocolate, vanilla, or mint. However, I needed something different. And I’ll be honest; this Ice cream is perfect!

Ingredients For Chai Mixture

Creating this ice cream is essentially a matter of some ingredients. There are two methods you can make this. You can make chai tea using bags or create your chai mix.

Chocolate Chip Cookies without Brown Sugar

If you’re using chai tea bags, you’ll only use 5-6 bags and only a handful of other spices like anise cloves and cardamom.

If you’d like to create to make your own mix for 1qt of ice cream, you’ll require:

  • 2 anise stars
  • 10 cloves of whole
  • 10 total allspice
  • 10 peppercorns
  • 4 pods of cardamom (opened to seed)
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1/4 cup black tea leaves

With the tea bags containing chai, it’s much simpler, and the outcomes are identical.

A lot of people think that chai tea bags won’t infuse the thick cream mix completely. However, by giving them a small squeeze, they’ll let out more flavor.

The entire process of making is simple; just mix the heavy cream, and allow it to cool, after which it is strained.

Reheat the cream and then temper the eggs with the cream. The mixture is cooked until it begins to coat the spoon’s back. After that, it’s time to put it in the freezer. The end result is soft and silky chai cream.

What is the reason for Orange Drizzle?

This chai ice cream has a sweet and warm aroma. To balance it, I came up with the orange drizzle. It’s refreshing and gives an astringent twist.

The combination of orange and chai is great, and chai, Why not make it a part of this recipe? As an alternative to orange could also make lime or lemon drizzle. You just need to replace the juice of orange with lime or lemon juice, then let me know how the recipe worked out!

The orange drizzle could be used in other desserts too. It can be used to drizzle on pies, cookies, cinnamon rolls, cakes, and other desserts that go well with oranges.

Tips to Make Ice Cream Chai Tea Ice Cream

As I said, it is a simple recipe. But, I’ll give you some suggestions for how to create the perfect Chai Tea Ice cream each time:

  1. This recipe relies on mixing heavy cream. Mix two heavy creams and half of the cream into a saucepan along with spices. Bring it to a simmer, then take it from the stove. Add the tea bags of chai and put them in the saucepan. Allow it to steep for one hour.
  2. After one hour, heat the heavy cream for another hour. Don’t boil the cream again. Then you can gently press the tea bags with chai. See the tea bags release their flavor and color in the cream. Repeat the process a few times, making certain that you don’t pierce the bag.
  3. Strain the heavy cream mixture into the clean pot.
  4. Beat the eggs using sugar. Pour in a bit of the heavy cream mixture that is hot. If you pour eggs directly into the heavy cream that is hot, it is possible that the eggs will get curdled. To prevent this from happening, make sure to temper your eggs after the eggs have been tempered and poured into the pan. Let the mixture cook until it starts to get coated on the edge of the spoon.
  5. Remove the mix from the stove and strain it again. This is to ensure that your mix to make the frozen dessert is smooth and free of eggs or spices. Place the mix in the freezer-friendly container and then chill until firm.
