Creamy ice cream anyone?
One of my favourite weekly indulgences is a scoop of good quality gelato at my local gelato store. The weather lately has been extremely hot, and all i have been craving is some creamy ice cream to cool me down!

  • If you have an ice cream machine, pour mixture inside and follow manufacturers instructions.
  • If you don’t, wait for mixture to cool then pour into loaf pan and place in freezer. To avoid it from becoming icy, mix your ice cream every 15 mins with a spoon for the first hour or so.
  • If this is too tedious, pour cooled ice cream mixture into ice cube trays and freeze. Once frozen, blend the cubes into a smooth ice cream texture
