Need fresh cranberry recipes? Make this Dairy-free Maple Bourbon Ice Cream with Candied Cranberry Toffee Swirl for dessert!

Today we're kicking off a #CookWithCranberries campaign with bloggers from our Healthy Aperture Blogger Network and the Cranberry Marketing Committee. The goal is to share several fresh cranberry recipes with all of you over the next couple of weeks and inspire you to use them when entertaining! Are you hosting or attending a Friendsgiving celebration this year? It's a growing trend that's all about celebrating Thanksgiving with your closest friends, either on Thanksgiving or during the weeks before or after. 

Fresh cranberries would be a great addition to almost any dish you're planning to prepare! They're a good source of vitamin C, fiber and antioxidants and their tart flavor profile makes them perfect for both sweet and savory dishes! Added bonus? They freeze really well! So buy an extra bag or two for your freezer and use them throughout the next year!

If you find a delicious way to use fresh cranberries this holiday season, be sure to snap a photo, share on social media and enter the Cranberry Friendsgiving Photo Contest for a chance to win over $4,000 in prizes in categories like food, drink and decor!

Dairy-free Maple Bourbon Ice Cream with Candied Cranberry Toffee Swirl

Yield

serves 12

Ingredients

  • 2 (13.5-ounce) cans full fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons arrowroot starch
  • 1 Tablespoon bourbon
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla paste or extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 3 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup fresh cranberries
  • 3 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons bourbon

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. Chill for 1 hour or until cold.
  3. Transfer contents to the container of an ice cream maker and churn according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Transfer mixture immediately to a piece of parchment paper to cool, spreading mixture out as evenly as possible.
  8. 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.
  9. To Assemble: Transfer churned ice cream to a 9-inch loaf pan.
  10. 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.)
  11. Cover ice cream and place in freezer for 4 hours to overnight, until frozen through.
  12. Allow ice cream to sit for 5 minutes to soften before scooping.
