Creamy, soft texture, the flavor of your choice and no annoying ice crystals in it. Did I just describe the perfect ice cream for you? Then you are in the right place because this 3-ingredient, 15-minute ice cream recipe is just what you need! IF you are wondering what Naturals ice cream is, it is a brand of ice cream available in India. Popular throughout the country, Naturals ice cream is known for the unique flavors it offers. Served on freshly made hot waffle cones, Naturals ice cream is in a teenager’s words, “something to die for!” 🙂

With the temperatures in Atlanta flirting with record highs, all I want to do is bathe, eat and drink ice! However, I must not over indulge in ice cream this summer, I thought to myself.  Just as the logical right hemisphere of my brain made this decision in its sternest possible voice,  the left hemisphere of my brain very creatively sketched up a scoop of ice cream. And my, oh my! What a sketch it was. Crisp texture, creamy melt-y scoops with bits of fig and fig swirls in it here and there. I could even see the brand ” Naturals”. My left brain is sure talented, I tell ya’ll!😁 My decision to stay away from ice cream long forgotten; I found myself counting the numerous ice cream flavors available at Naturals on my fingertips. Tender coconut, jackfruit, anjeer, sitaphal.. Plop! I heard a drop of drool hit the ground when I was awakened from my ice cream coma! (OK guys! Chill! I am exaggerating. I didn’t really drool over my floor. I cannot say that about the floor of my mouth though.)

My strong-willed, all rational right hemisphere had only one logical solution to offer now. “Go for a run and clear your thoughts ” ……

Gotcha! Joke of the year! Going for a run? Nah! Clearing my thoughts? No way! “Go to the store and get figs and cream and get going on the Naturals ice cream right away”! That sounds more like my brain eh? (Yours too?!😂)

Naturals Ice cream recipe with anjeer bits (figs)

So, I did. I dropped by the store almost immediately, grabbed all of the ingredients required and got back home. Actually, let me just correct that. I grabbed the THREE INGREDIENTS required to make the ice cream and got back home. You read it right! Just THREE ingredients to make this unique, you-will-never-find-it-in-a-store (except Naturals in India, of course!) Anjeer ice cream.

Now, I have no uncle or grandfather, or friend’s friend’s friend working in Naturals who secretly handed over the recipe to me. But, my recipe was inspired from my intense craving for Naturals ice cream, so much so, I decided to title this post, Naturals Ice Cream with real Anjeer . Did the ice cream live up to my expectations you ask?  All I can say is I have a better than Naturals ice cream, loaf of ice cream in my freezer right now! Err… almost true except that the loaf is more like a slice because it is all gone in a day!

Here is the recipe for:

Naturals Ice Cream with Real Anjeer

NATURALS ICE CREAM WITH REAL ANJEER (FIGS)

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 7 hours, 15 minutes

Serves: Makes 12-15 full scoops

NATURALS ICE CREAM WITH REAL ANJEER (FIGS)

Ingredients

  • 1 pint ( 2 cups) Heavy Whipping cream
  • 14 Oz (1 ¼ cups) Sweetened Condensed milk
  • 1cup Dried slices of figs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Add the figs to boiling water. Cook for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat.
  2. Strain, cool and blend the figs to a coarse puree.
  3. Whip the cream to soft peaks using a blender on medium speed.
  4. Mix the vanilla extract, the fig puree and condensed milk together.
  5. Add a portion of the whipped cream into the condensed milk mixture and fold it in. This will help loosen and lighten the condensed milk which will enable better mixing of the remaining whipped cream.
  6. Add the remaining whipped cream and fold it all in with a gentle hand until you have a smooth but fluffy and uniform ice cream mixture.
  7. Pour the mixture into a tray. Cover the tray with plastic wrap so that the film touches the top of the ice cream leaving no gaps. This will prevent crystallization.
  8. Put it in the freezer for at least 6 hour or overnight until the ice cream freezes thoroughly.
  9. The creamy soft ice cream is ready to be served.

My Take:

Things I would probably change next time around:

1) I would use lesser amount of figs, may be 3/4 th the quantity mentioned because I would like a few more spots of plain ice cream.

2) I would probably reduce the quantity of condensed milk (slightly) or add another 3/4 cup of whipping cream because I like my ice cream less sweet than this.

However, I recommend trying with the recipe measurements to begin with and make changes the next time as per your taste.
