I heard about wine ice cream a few months ago and set out to figure out how to make it on my own. I am happy to say, I have developed a recipe that is super easy (no ice fream freezer required!) and delicious!
1 cup moscato wine
2 cups whipping cream
1/2 cup sugar
Put ingredients in a blender and blend until it starts to thicken.....round 2-3 minutes. Pour into freezer container and freeze. Easy peasy!
Now, this isn't as smooth as a regular ice cream, its a little crystalline because of the wine, but the flavor is fabulous, especially with the addition of some fresh fruit.
I tested it with half and half, and it still works OK, but it feeezes harder and more crystalline. Heavy cream is good too, but tends to leave a fat residue feeling in your mouth. Whipping cream is just right and it doesn't freeze too hard.
