Cinnamon Graham Cracker Ice Cream

Husband got me the ice cream maker attachment (for our Kitchenaid Mixer) for my birthday!!  We’ve been wanting one for awhile and what better occasion than my birthday?? 😉  My first batch was pretty bad, I hate a learning curve.  This is my second attempt.

This recipe is from the Penzey’s catalog.

No substitutions were made.

Cinnamon Graham Cracker Ice Cream

1 3/4 c heavy cream
12 oz nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
4 tblsp honey
4 tblsp maple syrup
3/4 tsp cinnamon
2 large rectangular graham crakers, broken into pieces
2 1.4 oz bars chocolate-covered toffee, broken into small bits

Beat the heavy creak in a large bowl until thick (2 to 3 minutes).  Fold in the yogurt, vanilla, honey, maple syrup and cinnamon.  Pour into your ice cream maker.  Add the remaining ingredients a couple of minutes before the ice cream is fully thickened.  Pour into a 1.5 quart freezer safe bowl with a lid and chill until hardened.

If you don’t have an ice cream maker, you can put the original mixture into the freezer-safe bowl and freeze for 2 hours.  Then, stir the mixture and add the graham cracker and toffee bits.  Continue to stir it every 2 hours, for up to 6 hours.  Then chill until hardened.
