Print

Ingredients

  • 2 (13.5-ounce) cans full-fat coconut milk
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons arrowroot starch
  • 1 Tablespoon bourbon
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla paste or extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • 3 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¾ cup fresh cranberries
  • 3 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons bourbon

Instructions

  • To Make Ice Cream: Shake cans of coconut milk well. Combine contents of cans, maple syrup, arrowroot starch, bourbon, vanilla and salt in a large bowl or container. Chill for 1 hour or until cold. Transfer contents to the container of an ice cream maker and churn according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  • To Make Candied Pecans: Combine pecans, maple syrup and cinnamon in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Cook together, stirring occasionally, for 2-4 minutes or until mixture bubbles and gets sticky. Transfer mixture immediately to a piece of parchment paper to cool, spreading mixture out as evenly as possible. Separate into smaller pieces once cooled, if necessary.
  • To Make Candied Cranberries: Combine cranberries, maple syrup, and cinnamon in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Cook together, stirring occasionally, for 2-4 minutes or until mixture bubbles and gets sticky. Transfer mixture immediately to a piece of parchment paper to cool, spreading mixture out as evenly as possible.
  • To Make Maple-Bourbon Toffee: Combine ½-cup maple syrup and 2 tablespoons bourbon in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook for 4-5 minutes to reduce mixture. Mixture should now measure 1/3 cup. Set aside to cool.
  • To Assemble: Transfer churned ice cream to a 9-inch loaf pan. Add cooled pecans and cranberries; swirl through with a knife. Working quickly, drizzle maple-bourbon mixture over ice cream and swirl through with a knife (this mixture will harden a bit when it hits the ice cream, resulting in a toffee). Cover ice cream and place in freezer for 4 hours to overnight, until frozen through. Allow ice cream to sit for 5 minutes to soften before scooping
