Tahini Chocolate Chunk No Churn Ice Cream

Tahini flavored ice cream filled with dark chocolate chunks and garnished with toasted sesame seeds. 

Tahini Chocolate Chunk No Churn Ice Cream

This tahini and chocolate chunk ice cream is so easy to make because it is no churn... no ice cream maker required. You actually make this ice cream in the food processor, including whipping the cream.

I love the flavor that tahini adds to this ice cream. After making peanut butter no churn ice cream as well as cookie butter no churn ice cream, I was pretty sure that a tahini version would be a success. 

What actually is tahini? 

Tahini (affiliate link) is made from ground toasted sesame seeds. It has the consistency of natural peanut butter and the flavor is mildly savory, and like peanut butter, is delicious in desserts. 

I found some in the tiny kosher section of my supermarket. You can also find it in Middle Eastern grocery stores. 

Five years ago, no one knew what tahini was, and now it's everywhere. I bought some to make blackeyed pea hummus, and loved using it. You can use it like most nut butters, and you'll love its creamy consistency. Keep an eye out for more recipes using tahini in the future.

Stir in some chopped dark chocolate into this ice cream and you have a flavor marriage made in heaven. 

You can serve it in a cone or in a bowl, and garnish it with chocolate sauce and toasted sesame seeds. My adult taste testers loved it with the sesame seeds while my grandsons loved the chocolate sauce.

Ingredients in this ice cream:

You will need cream cheese, vanilla extract, salt, heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk, and a little bourbon. 

In addition, you will need tahini, some chopped dark chocolate, and toasted sesame seeds for garnish. I also love drizzling some chocolate syrup over the ice cream before serving. 

This ice cream is sooooo delicious! 

Tahini Chocolate Chunk No Churn Ice Cream ingredients

How to make this no churn ice cream: 

First, process cream cheese, vanilla, and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Next, add the cream and process until you have stiff peaks. 

I love that you can use your food processor to whip cream! Plus, it only takes 30 seconds. 

After that, add the sweetened condensed milk and tahini, and the bourbon, and process. Pour the mixture into a cold loaf pan and stir in chopped chocolate. Freeze the mixture overnight.
