Makes 1 drink
No-Cook or Other

A bartender friend of mine got me hooked on a liqueur from South Africa called, AMARULA CREAM, and I can't get enough of it.
It's like a fruity, exotic version of Bailey's Irish Cream, & to me it tastes like caramelized fruit (mango, papaya).
My friend said this is the most popular drink made with Amarula. This makes a great after-dinner drink.

AMARULA CREAM is made from the fruit of the Marula tree, that's found in South Africa. The fruit is fermented into a wine that's aged in oak barrels for 2 yrs. It's then mixed with fresh cream.

**Pix isn't mine...(lost mine when moved).


5 oz
vanilla ice cream (about 1 large scoop)
1 1/2 oz
heavy cream, cold
shots amarula cream liqueur
cocoa powder or chocolate shavings, to garnish

Directions Step-By-Step

Place all of the ingredients in a blender. Blend well. Pour into a glass and garnish with a sprinkle of cocoa powder or chocolate shavings (or fruit, if desired).
To kick it up a notch, add a little vodka, brandy or cognac. This will thin it out so it's more like a cocktail, and also cut some of the sweetness.

4 scoops vanilla ice cream
1 cup milk
2 shots Amarula Cream Liqueur

Combine in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass.

Hi Shirlie! I've seen the elephants dance too, but I have a mental picture of a drunk elephant just sitting there and swaying back and forth...LOL

My Chocolate Kahlua Cake recipe is posted here. I modified that using Amarula and a white cake mix, and milk chocolate chips. It was yummy. Served it with vanilla ice cream and hot fudge.

@ Karen.....ha ha ha ha ha!!! I don't know what a drunk elephant does or looks like, or if it sees pink people (LOL!!), but I have seen one dance before (it shakes its head back and forth). I bet that (drunk elephant) would be a sight to see!
Do you have your chocolate cake recipe posted on here? I'd like to try it.

I've used Amarula instead of Kahlua when making my chocolate's very good.

Just a little tidbit of info that has always tickled me about's made from the berries of the Marula tree. When elephants eat the berries, they act "drunk." I think that's why there's an elephant on the box. I've always wondered what a "drunk" elephant does/acts like. Do you think they see pink people? :o) lol
