Vanilla Chocolate Almond Ice cream (Eggless)

Today we are starting the 65th Blogging Marathon and i am very happy to pick the Holiday Dishes as the theme for this week.
Ice cream has been a favorite for most of the kids and even us. In my childhood we used to go the beach in Chennai every Friday and have a choco-bar and then come back. My son also is starting to like ice cream, That made me think to buy a ice cream maker at home. I bought the Cuisinart Ice cream maker. We all love the home made ice cream since then.
I try to experiment many flavors in home with mainly fruit based. Since we make it in the home, I avoid adding sugar and substitute it with Maple syrup. None of us could find any difference in taste. I will not mind giving another extra scoop for kids too since the ingredients are limited.

This time i tried Vanilla Chocolate Almond flavored ice cream.
Here goes the recipe

1 Cup Milk
3/4 cup Maple syrup
2 cups Heavy cream
1 whole Vanilla bean or (1 table spoon pure Vanilla extract)
1/4 cup chopped cacao chips
1/4 cup chopped/Silvered Almonds
pinch of salt

In a bowl mix all the ingredients except the cacao chips and nuts and combine well. Refrigerate for couple of hours.
Turn on the ice cream maker and pour the mixture into the frozen freezer bowl, add the nuts and the cacao chips into the bowl.
Let it mix until it thickens for about 20 minutes.
The ice cream will have a soft, fluffy and creamy texture. It can be served right away.
If you want it to be more firm, transfer the contents to a bowl and freeze it for couple of hours and serve.

Maple syrup can be substituted with sugar
cacao chip can be substituted with choco chip.
Nuts can be avaoided based on your taste.

I haven't tried ice cream with maple syrup. That sounds like a great alternate to white sugar. Will have to try in my next recipe.
