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
- 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.
