Homemade No Churn Coconut Ice Cream

Love ice cream but you have no ice cream maker to make some in! No worries. Ice cream can be made without the use of a machine, just with a little patience

Homemade ice cream couldn’t be easier. I have always been a little worried that It wouldn’t turn out as nice as a churned ice cream but I was proved wrong last week when the eldest and I made up a batch for the first time of Coconut ice cream. It was simple to make and tasted incredibly delicious.

Once you master the basics of making ice cream you can then go on to invent your own flavours, becoming more adventurous with the flavour and texture. I have previously tried making ice cream from bananas, which tasted lovely but i wanted to try it another way.

This recipe is so creamy and smooth. You will be making up batches every day.

You will need:

  • A tub to store your ice cream in
  • Hand held electric mixer
  • Tin of condensed milk
  • Carton of double cream
  • Tin of coconut milk
  • 1tsp Vanilla essence

Method:

  • In a bowl pour in the double cream. Using a mixer or by hand whip the double cream until it begins to thicken
  • Add in the condensed milk and whip again
  • Fold in the coconut milk
  • Add in any flavouring or colouring
  • pour into you tupperware tub and place in the freezer

The ice cream will set around the edge first so take it out after an hour and stir to combine it all. Repeat an hour later.

Leave to set over night.

You are now ready to serve up your treat

We added banana slices into our ice cream. For my next batch I am going to try ginger and cinnamon.

Thank you for reading šŸ™‚

Brotherly love

My sons Jak age 9 and Joseph age 4 are always arguing, they argue over everything but they would do anything for each other especially Jak. Being the eldest he is very caring and very grown up for his age, he looks after Joseph and let’s him get away with alot of things.
Today they went swimming and after we went for a Chinese buffet. After jak’
s third plate he asked if he could have some afters which was ice-cream, so off he went helping himself to a huge bowl full of whippy ice-cream. Joseph was still eating his noodles and wasn’t paying much attention to where Jak went until Jak sat back down at the table.
Joseph then looked really sad and offered Jak a noodle, to which Jak wasn’t paying much attention to, so Joseph then said to me
‘I share my food with someone I love’ he repeated this twice and I said to him ‘aaw you good boy’
so I told Jak to take the noodle because Joseph was saying he loved him, once Jak took the noodle Joseph then said to him
‘don’t you love me Jak, are you going to share your food with me now’
Joseph was staring at jak’s ice-cream with very hungry eyes lol
There was me thinking I was witnessing some brotherly love and all along Joseph had an ulterior motive thinking of ice-cream.

He’s not silly my Joseph, lol.
