Berrylicious ice cream recipe and a giveaway for you

As the weather warms up the kids tend to ask for
something cold and yummy to enjoy after school.

Reading the ingredients labels on ice cream I feel at
a loss trying to figure out what all those numbers mean, I mean really, it’s
just ice cream, how many ingredients need to be in there after all.
I love to try and make everything from scratch so why not ice
cream, well I had a go and using an ice cream maker made it really quick and
easy.

Here’s a basic recipe I made using a Cusinart ice
cream maker
Berrylicious ice cream
 
Author:
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 1 litre
Ingredients
  • ¾ cup whole milk
  • ½ cup sugar or honey if you prefer
  • 1½ cups cream
  • 150grams mixed berries, thawed and slightly mashed with a fork
Method
  1. Using a mixer or hand whisk, mix milk and sugar in a bowl for a few minutes until sugar has dissolved
  2. Add cream and mix until combined
  3. Turn the machine on and pour the mixture into freezer bowl, and let it mix until thickened, about 25 minutes.
  4. Once the mixture starts to thicken, add the berries and continue mixing for another 5 minutes. The ice cream should have a soft, creamy texture. If a firmer consistency is desired, transfer the ice cream into an airtight container and place in the freezer for about 2 hours.
  5. Remove from freezer about 15 minutes before serving
Notes
Recipe can be doubled to
make 2 litres of ice cream

 

 

I haven’t used an ice cream maker before so watching
my cream, milk and sugar transformed into a creamy ice cream was very exciting.

The machine was easy to use and could be used at any
time the family felt like ice cream, as long as the freezer bowl was chilled in
the freezer for at least 12 hours.

The only downside I found was with the noise it makes,
it is like having a mixer working the entire time, so midnight ice cream making
would not be ideal.

 

As summer approaches us here in Australia it is
perfect for that healthier ice cream or frozen yoghurt for the family. I’m
definitely looking forward to trying out a variety of flavours.

To welcome summer and to celebrate my return here I have one cuisinart ice cream maker
to give away thanks to ebay.com.au
