This is a Public Service Announcement. Go forth and make ice cream because it’s waaaaaaay easier than you might think! Two ingredients plus whatever flavours you care to throw at it, and no ice cream machine needed. Thanks once more to the wonder that is Nigella Lawson for the coffee ice cream recipe, but the other flavours I’ve made up using what I happened to have around. Easy peasy.
300ml double cream
175g condensed milk
2 tbsp espresso powder
and 2 tbsp coffee liqueur
A big handful of fresh cherries
and 1 tsp almond essence
Half pack of chopped Oreos
Any kind of liqueur
Cookie dough lumps
Anything you can think of
- Put the cream and condensed milk into a large bowl and whip together using an electric hand whisk until soft peaks form.
- Stir in the flavourings, then scrape into whatever kind of freezable tub you feel like using.
- Leave in the freezer for 6 hours, and that’s it!
