If you want to make this recipe even more indulgent, try adding a drizzle of caramel sauce or a sprinkle of sea salt on top of each scoop of ice cream. You can also serve the ice cream in a warm mug with a shot of espresso for a boozy affogato.
If you don’t have an ice cream maker, you can also use a blender to mix the ingredients together, then pour the mixture into a freezer-safe container and freeze for 4-6 hours. The texture may not be as smooth as using an ice cream maker, but it will still be delicious.
For a non-alcoholic version of this recipe, simply omit the rum and add an extra 1/4 cup of milk. You can also experiment with different flavors like chai or pumpkin spice for a seasonal twist.
