I really really like to eat ice cream. Apart from biscuits, ice cream is probably my biggest diet downfall. I like it so much I started to make homemade ice creams. They are hard to beat and you can make some really amazing treats, and know that they are made from real food and free from any unnecessary extras.
I like ice cream so much I bought an ice cream maker, and if you are serious about ice cream they are really useful. Mine has never made a bad ice cream and together we have made all sorts of ice creams. Making ice cream is a great way to make use of in season fruits, and there is something amazing about homemade strawberry ice cream. My eldest boy really enjoys making ice creams with me… and as a kids activity its slightly less messy than baking! We don’t bother with the custard based ones, I tend to be more into the quick recipes where you chuck in milk, cream and your other ingredients and churn for 30 minutes.
However, you don’t need an ice cream maker to make delicious ice creams,
