This ice cream can be a drink or the real-deal, spoonable ice cream variety. The tartness of the pomegranate molasses makes this drink a refreshing summer treat. It’s a great way to use up some of those perfect in-season strawberries too!
1/2heavy cream swirled with about 2 teaspoons pom molasses (0ptional)
Strawberries to garnish (sliced, chopped or just placed on the side of the glass)
Place strawberries, pomegranate molasses, sugar, salt, and vanilla bean in blender or food processor(affiliate link), stir it around for a minute, then let rest for at least 1/2 hour at room temp, then puree until smooth. Put through a fine-mesh strainer (optional) for a very smooth drink. Mix in half and half, and heavy cream to combine.
Transfer to quart container, cover, and place in the fridge and chill overnight, for best results.
Add the mixture to ice cream maker, (be sure to leave enough room for the rum, which you will add at the 15 mark) and churn for about half-hour. Keep in eye on it and at about 15 minutes add the rum. (Follow your ice cream makers instructions and don’t overfill the vessel, it will expand a little bit, so don’t fill to the top)!
Using a whisk or hand mixer, whip the cream to stiff peaks. Swirl in the pomegranate molasses and top your drink.
*Pomegranate Molasses is an intensely flavored tart syrup made from the pomegranate fruit, not to be mistaken for the typical molasses found in stores, this one packs a tangy punch and is delicious!
