Do you want to find out about a delightful dessert? Well, you came to the right place because we are about to make this Jamaican rum and raisin ice cream recipe.

Bragging On This Jamaican Rum And Raisin Ice Cream Recipe

Let me tell you how good this recipe is. I hate raisins with a passion, but for this recipe, I will make the exception.

Granted, I can also eat this ice cream without the raisins, but that is one of the beauties of this recipe. If you do not like raisins, then do not add them and this recipe is still great.

What I like about this ice cream is the sweetness combined with the bold flavor of the dark rum.

The flavor of the dark rum does have a bit of bitterness to it, but the sweetness that the ice cream provides balances everything out.

Does Rum And Raisin Have Alcohol?

Everything involving rum will more than likely have alcohol in it. Furthermore, yes, rum and raisins have alcohol in them.

The only situations using rum with no alcohol are recipes involving cooking the alcohol out of the rum and rum flavor drink that do not have alcohol in them.

Can You Eat Rum And Raisin Ice Cream When Pregnant?

Unless you find some rum that does not have any alcohol in it, then you will not be able to eat this Jamaican rum and raisin ice cream recipe while pregnant.

Why Is The Jamaican Rum And Raisin Ice Cream Recipe The Best

I could give you a simple answer and say that this recipe is the best ice cream recipe you will make because it has alcohol in it. That is the easy answer, but there is more to it than that.

The balance between the dark rum flavor and the sweetness you will get from ice cream complement each other so well.

Additionally, the raisins play a vital role in the ice cream’s flavor as well.

Wow, I never thought that I see the day that I would give a compliment to anything with raisins in it, which speak volumes of how astonishing this recipe is.

How Do I Substitute Condensed Milk For Ice Cream?

If you do not want to make homemade ice cream with condensed milk, then here is what you will do.

Throw the condensed milk away and replace it with nonfat milk.

On the contrary, there are tons of superb recipes using condensed milk, including this Jamaican rum and raisin ice cream recipe.

Therefore, throwing away the condensed milk may not be the best idea. When I said “throw it away” I do not mean that literally, but I have to clarify just in case.

Back to the nonfat milk and why it is a good substitute for condensed milk.

Mixing the nonfat milk with sugar, margarine, and boiling water will give the substitute milk the same thickness and richness that condensed milk has.

Is There Rum In Rum Raisin Ice Cream?

If the recipe is named Jamaican RUM raisin ice cream, I would think that there is some type of rum in the ice cream.

As I mentioned before, the ingredients complement each other well, and rum is vital to that. Not only are the flavors balanced, but you will also not be able to get the same richness from artificial flavoring rum.

Furthermore, if you are worried about consuming too much alcohol, then I have some great news to share with you. This is your recipe to make, therefore all you need to do is add a splash of rum.

Doing this will give you that rum flavor without having you too drunk.

Can You Get Drunk Off Rum Raisin Ice Cream?

I came across this question on Google, and the answer I have seen says that you cannot get drunk eating ice cream with alcohol in it.

Spoiler alert, I disagree with this take. The reason why is that regardless if you are eating ice cream with rum, or drinking the rum, you are still consuming the alcohol.

Yes, the ice cream may be diluting the alcohol, making the alcohol weaker, but any chaser can do that.

If I am drinking rum straight, and I add some orange to my beverage, then that drink will be weaker in comparison to my original drink.

On the contrary, this take would be valid if the recipe involved heating up the food, which is the exact opposite of what you need to do for this ice cream recipe.

As the temperature gets hotter, the alcohol begins to expand and can evaporate at a quicker pace. At this hot temperature, the alcohol will eventually evaporate altogether.

Is Rum And Raisin Ice Cream Jamaican?

Rum and raisin ice cream can definitely be considered a Jamaican dish. I mean, this is the Jamaican rum and raisin ice cream recipe after all.

Also, this type of ice cream is enjoyed all over the Caribbean.

What Goes With Rum And Raisin Ice Cream?

The typical topping that goes with any other ice cream will also go well with the Jamaican rum and raisin ice cream recipe. Personally, chocolate syrup is awesome with this recipe.

Is Rum And Raisin Ice Cream Nice?

Of course, this ice cream is nice. I would not make this recipe if it was not nice.
