In some parts of the world, summers are there and some like us are hoping for it to arrive soon. So when it’s spring or summer we all scream for Ice Cream. So today I am sharing a completely new Ice Cream at least for me, 4 Ingredient Gulkand Ice cream, which I made on the go.

Yes, I literally made it on the go. I was all set to make my 3 ingredient Chocolate Ice Cream for my kids as the earlier batch was over. But guess what, after I whipped the cream, I realized I do not have any condensed milk. Phew yes, I am one of those, who remove the ingredients on the go at times. I know, I need to improve here. Now what, What shall I do with the cream which I have whipped?

I had a can of evaporated milk in my pantry crying to make something out of it. And since I was looking for something which would replace the creamy texture of Milkmaid I decided to use milk. Now after my successful baking of Eggless Gulkand Muffins, I was already working on ways to incorporate this more into my recipes. So I thought why not add some Gulkand to this? I do make pan (betel leaves) flavored ice cream and I was sure this will taste delicious too.

What is Gulkand

Gulkand is an edible Rose petal Jam. Consumption of it is believed to help the body in this warm summer weather. You can read more about Gulkand in my post on Eggless Gulkand Muffins.

Ingredients used in 4 Ingredient Gulkand Ice Cream

Evaporated milk is used here instead of Milkmaid. One can use Milkmaid too, in that case, replace the Milkmaid with evaporated milk and honey.

Fresh cream is whipped to add a creamy texture to the ice cream.

Honey is used as a sweetener. One can replace it with granulated sugar or a sweetener of choice.

Gulkand or Edible Rose Petal Jam is the main ingredient of this Ice cream.

Recipe process of 4 Ingredient Gulkand Ice Cream

Fresh cream is first whipped to a smooth peak consistency. It would add air and slightly increase in volume. Next Evaporated milk, honey, and Gulkand are gently folded into the Ice Cream.

When mixing Gulkand be careful as it has a tendency to form lumps. Also, you need to mix it gently as you do not want the air from the whipped cream to deflate too.

Gulkand has some sugar, so I added honey as a sweetener. As said earlier, one can replace it with a granulated or sweetener of choice.

Once everything is added mix and freeze it for 6-8 hours. The ice cream would be roughly set after 6-8 hours. Remove it and give it a nice mix again. This will help mix the solid Gulkand particles which might have settled down.

The end result would be a silky, rich, and luxurious Gulkand Ice cream. We enjoyed this along with our friends and we all were craving more. I have already made another batch of the same.
