White Chocolate Raspberry-Swirl Ice Cream

The ice cream maker has been getting a workout lately. I finally purchased Dave Lebovitz’s “The Perfect Scoop”, and pretty much want to make every single recipe covered in it’s pages. But this white chocolate ice cream with a raspberry swirl was practically singing to me when I was thumbing through the book. I had to make it immediately!

It might have had something to do with the fact that I had a bunch of good white chocolate left over from Christmas, and that it’s summer – and the berries have been unbelievably gorgeous and irresistible. Whatever the reason, I’m so glad this got churned in our kitchen. The white chocolate lends and extra layer or sweetness and richness, but the tart raspberries cut right through it. I also liked the fact that the raspberries were mashed with a fork, and then added as-is – as opposed to being puréed and strained.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. After multiple days of rain, we’re hoping to get some sunshine. The boys have been itching to get back on the boat or to the beach all week long. Keep your fingers crossed for us!
