Amarula is a very new flavor for me and one I would never have tried probably if not for ZWT4. I quite enjoy it and it us of course well suited for this cold and creamy ice cream. Made a half batch of it. This is not overly sweet...we served it with fried plantains for a very sophisticated adult dessert. Thank you for posting.

Really smooth, creamy and good textured ice cream. Made it in an ice cream maker. Not that sweet and amarula flavor was only a hint.
