Rum-Macadamia Ice Cream

One of my favorite Hawaiian treats is a snow cone, and at Tobi’s Shaved Ice they take it to the next level with a scoop of Macadamia Nut ice cream.  I’ve been dreaming about that ice cream since I got back home and due to the fact I posted workout tips yesterday, I figured it best to find a “low fat” ice cream alternative.

Thanks to Cooking Light I found a great recipe for Rum-Macadamia Ice Cream  using low fat ingredients… so grab your ice cream machine and whip up this fun treat!

  • 3 1/2 cups 2% Milk
  • 1 cup half & half
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 (14 oz) can fat free sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons dark rum

Combine first 4 ingredients and stir with a whisk. Pour milk mixture into frozen ice cream maker and follow directions according to the maker. Stir in nuts and rum during the last 5 minutes.  Transfer ice cream to a Tupperware and freeze at least 4 hours.  Spoon into a serving bowl and be transported to a sandy beach!

Note: This treat doesn’t have the “standard” rich and creamy ice cream texture, but is more like a frozen Pina Colada-ice cream hybrid.  It is so amazingly refreshing and the perfect poolside snack… and for 234 calories for a 1/2 cup serving you can’t go wrong!
