“Basic Recipes for Churning”

published 08/06/2004

ProInexpensive, delicious, reasonably easy, control o...

ConsMake too much and you could put on weight

About four years ago, I paid £10 for a second-hand electric ice cream churn. It's probably the best £10 I have ever spent. When it eventually stops working, it's one appliance I shall replace without any question. Making ice-cream at home is considerably less expensive than buying decent quality...

“The Ice Maidens Cold Front”

published 12/07/2003

ProThey are all yummy

ConsThe recipes use cream so you will be a bloater

Summer is upon as and our house is getting through copious amounts of ice cream. We tend to have fads. Although I do still buy shop bought ice cream, the majority of our ice cream is home made, and there are always at least ten containers of different varieties in the freezer. Last year I...

ProIt's summer

ConsWasps, y'know

This is my own invention, you know. It's an Iced Strawberry-coffee-meringuey-cream beautiful thing. Or, if you'd rather, 'cheat's ice-cream sundae', and, if we're being honest: ' What do you really want to eat for supper in this weather?'. Why do you need to know about this recipe? It's hot. Bet...

ConsTakes a bit of elbow grease

This is the second summer that we have owned an ice cream maker. This is the second summer that scarcely a weekend has gone by when I haven’t spent at least part of the day chucking together the ingredients for some of the sweet and delectable confection. I like ice cream. My family likes ice...

“Perfect Pistachio Ice Cream”

published 01/05/2009

ProTastes absolutely wonderful

ConsHave to have an ice cream maker

I just love ice cream it's just one of those things that is easily eaten and quite refreshing. Even at this time of year I can eat ice cream! Cold yes but lovely and sweet. I'm a fan of most flavours except vanilla. Fortunately my craving paid off and I bought myself an ice cream maker! Oh the...

“Mango and peach ice cream”

published 26/01/2009

ProEasy and simple to make, contains fruit, tasty

ConsNone come to mind.

When the mango season comes around in summer, I become addicted to eating ripe juicy mangoes, as my dad brings home a big box full of mangoes week after week from the Indian grocery store. It becomes my favourite fruit for about a month before I begin to get bored of it. Probably the only time of...

“Red Nose Ice Cream”

published 28/02/2007

ProYummy yummy yummy!!!!

ConsQuite fattening

Red Nose Ice Cream. This is a favourite recipe of mine. If you make any please add a small donation on Red Nose day. It's so simple to make and takes no time at all and unlike ordinary ice cream you do not need to keep stirring it when freezing. Ingredients: 1 pint Double cream 1 can condensed...

ConsSome are fattening, some are tooth-rotters!

Mmm… frozen desserts. For ice creams, you'll have to refer to my previous opinion. Today, we're doing sorbets and frozen yoghurts. You won't need an ice cream maker for any of these, nor any fiddly gelatine or any other clever ingredients. And what's more, they're all easy peasy, nicer than...

Profat free, lovely taste

Consjust the washing up

I love sorbets and ice cream but since having to change my diet and cut out a lot of processed food I've missed iced desserts. Yes I cheat now and again but I do suffer, so I decided to come up with something of my own so I knew exactly what was in it! What you'll need (serves 2 people):- 150...

“Jazzy Vanilla Ice Cream”

published 17/07/2003

ProEasy and cheap

ConsCan be a little sickly

I wonder if you are like me? and get bored easily with the normal things in life? like a little experimenting? Well I was experimenting once again and have a cracking idea to jazz up boring old plain vanilla ice cream. Ingrediants: 2 or 3 tablespoons of icing sugar 2 handfuls of pecan nuts 1...

“Sorbets - yummy delights!”

ConsI honestly can't think of anything

Sorbets are fantastic alternatives to ice cream. They're healthier and more refreshing to eat I find and they really are quite easy to prepare and make. Of course you can buy them in supermarkets, but I personally prefer to make homemade ones as first of all, it's cheaper, secondly, I may as well...

Consvery eatable (is that a word)

As I don't own an ice cream maker when a friend gave me this recipe a couple of years ago I just couldn't wait to try it out and since then I make it on a regular basis, probably every couple of months. OLD FASHIONED VANILLA ICE CREAM 2 X 397g cans condensed milk 300ml single cream 200ml creme...
