Stout Ice Cream

Another special thanks to my friend Bev for helping me out with this one. Bev brought this recipe over and it was the perfect day to make it, St. Patrick’s Day! We figured it would be good to make when you are sick of drinking and don’t want that Guinness sitting around in your fridge forever. You probably told yourself the day after that you are never drinking again anyway. Am I right? Okay, so instead of drinking, you can eat….Stout Ice Cream!

This was fun to make. Definitely different than any ice cream I’ve made before. Boiling beer was a first for us. Bev and I agreed that it is a terrible smell after a holiday hangover. Just a warning! We boiled the beer down to, essentially,  a beer concentrate. Getting rid of the alcohol and water content, what’s left is pure stout flavor. Sorry kids, you can’t get buzzed by eating this stuff.

I added chocolate syrup to the ice cream after mixing it and it made it even better. You can leave it out though. For some reason, Guinness concentrate and chocolate just make an awesome combination. I’m adding it to my list with chocolate and orange.

    I have been following your website for several months and I just love it. All of your recipes are unique, easy to understand and easy to follow. I haven’t tried all of your recipes yet, but I have yet to make one that wasn’t just as you said.
    So many websites send you on a hunt looking for things that are hard or impossible to find and some you don’t even know what they are. So THANK YOU again for taking the time to create the site and spend the time sharing your recipes. I can’t wait to try this one and I always look forward to your next post.
