Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine Guinness, cream and milk in a large saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat.
  2. Whisk the egg yolks and sugar in a large heat-proof bowl. Slowly add the hot Guinness cream, whisking constantly until well-blended.
  3. Strain back into the saucepan. Cook over medium heat about 6 minutes, until it thickens and coats the back of a spoon. Do not let boil.
  4. Set a medium bowl inside a large bowl filled with ice water. Pour the custard into the medium bowl. Stir occasionally until the custard is cold, about 30 minutes. Change the ice as needed.
  5. Pour into an ice cream maker and freeze per manufacturer's instructions. Pack into an airtight container and place into freezer until firm, about 4 hours.
  6. Serve with chocolate-covered pretzels.

I'm sure this tastes good, but that's quite a bit of cholesterol and saturated fat for just one serving of ice cream. Where's the low-fat version?

This had an excellent flavor and was pretty easy to make. A little sweet with a nice mellow Guinness taste. Thanks for posting. I will make it again.
