The journey to exciting, preservative and additive free ice-cream is just ahead. All you need to do is figure out what you’re going to make. If you’re short on ideas, you can try your hand at any of these:
- Ice Cream Cakes – Customise your ice-cream birthday cake by making your own creamy treat. Best of all, as the mixture result is quite soft; you can pour it into a metal mould of your choice for a unique and professional-looking result.
- Ice Cream Sandwiches – A childhood classic that even adults will enjoy, you can nestle your favourite ice cream between biscuits or wafers for a nostalgic treat.
- Frozen yoghurt – It’s never been easier to create your own unique twist on this popular, healthy dessert. Consider adding berries or citrus flavours to your mix, to help cool you down on a summer’s day.
- Ice cream – There are so many different and interesting variations you can use to make this classic favourite both original and tasty. How about vanilla ice cream with peanut brittle and milk chocolate chunks? Or even adding crushed up biscuits with a swirl of freshly brewed coffee?
- Sorbet – Take charge of this dairy free alternative and go wild with your flavours. From timeless classics like lemon or mango to something more exotic like a peach and basil infused delight, you’re only limited by your creativity.
- Milkshakes – After making your own foundations for ice-cream or frozen yoghurt, add a little bit extra milk or coconut water to produce milkshakes or fruit smoothies. And for a touch of diet-busting decadence, add toasted marshmallows or mini donuts.
