In This Recipe
  1. Assemble the ingredients in a food processor or blender and puree. Then chill the mix thoroughly. If you do not want heat you could use a sweet paprika instead.
  2. Pour into an ice cream maker and process according to the maker's directions. Serve right away (or store in the freezer and then let soften for serving).
  3. Garnish with a daring sprinkle of Hungarian hot paprika or Aleppo chili pepper flakes.
