Carrot Cake Ice Cream

The other day I was challenged by my cousin to make carrot cake ice cream, and here it is! This dessert has the tang and creaminess of cream cheese frosting plus the warm spices of a traditional carrot cake. One taster yesterday said that it tasted like I made a carrot cake  and placed it in the freezer (this recipe is way easier and gluten-free!)

1 3/4C 2%Milk

3/4C Sugar

1/2tsp Cinnamon

1/2tsp Ground ginger

1/8tsp Nutmeg

8oz Cream cheese, room temperature

1/4tsp Vanilla extract

1 1/2tsp Lemon juice

1/2C Grated carrots

pinch of salt

Heat 1/2C milk, sugar, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg is a small saucepan until the sugar dissolves. Place the cream cheese in a bowl and whisk until smooth, add the warm milk mixture and again whisk until smooth. Whisk in the remaining ingredients and pour into an ice cream machine.
