Summer is here and we are all looking for a way to cool down in this scorching, lovely weather we have been having.
Home made ice cream is simple to make – incredibly delicious and makes you rethink about buying shop bought ice-cream again.
It’s that simple that even the children can join in with making it. There is no need for a machine – no churning – just simple mixing with a spoon will do
- 1 tin of coconut milk
- 1 tub of double cream
- 4 heaped tbsp of Jim Jam Chocolate spread
- A handful of chopped hazelnuts
Combine the cream and milk in a bowl until smooth
Combine the Jim Jam spread in the mixture with a mixer until smooth
Add in the chopped hazelnuts (for that extra chocolate flavour, swirl in some of the spread into the creamy mixture)
Transfer to a freezer safe container
After 2 hours, take it out of the freezer and mix together
Once frozen (about 4 hours) Take out of the freezer and leave in the room to melt for about 5 minutes.
Now you are ready to serve up
This ice-cream is so smooth and delicious! A little bit of naughtiness but in a guilt free way
Why did I use Jim Jams Spread?
Jim Jams spreads are made up with 83% less sugar – thus meaning it is a healthier choice to feed the family. Instead of using refined sugar they use Maltitol, an artificial sweetener. It is used to replace table sugar because it is half as caloric, does not promote tooth decay, and has a somewhat lesser effect on blood glucose. Not only is it less sugar but also, gluten-free, suitable for vegetarians and diabetics.
The hazelnut spread gives the ice-cream a rich, full-bodied taste. It is creamy and indulgent.
As a family we have dramatically cut down on our sugar intake; not just because of my illness but for the sake of our health and the children’s teeth. Since cutting down, we can see a difference in the children’s behaviour, they are less fatigued and have lots more energy throughout the day. We have noticed that our skin is much more healthier, we feel less full and that our hair doesn’t become greasy as quickly previously before the change of diet.
Jim Jams Hazelnut Chocolate spread can be found in most major supermarkets.
We was sent a jar of Jim Jam spread for the purpose of this review
