I don't make ice cream often. When I do I do not want to be faffing about with putting ice cream machine bowls in the freezer for a minimum of 24 hours before hand. I am just not that organised most of the time. So when I do make ice cream it is a version like this or one involving cooked meringue. This one made 3 500ml tubs and starts with a base of
450ml double/whipping cream whipped to firm peaks
1 tin of condensed cream whipped into the whipped cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
This in itself would be lovely just frozen in a container for 6-8 hours or overnight. But Luke wanted oreo ice cream so we added extras to it
We melted and cooled 250-300g of dark chocolate and let it cool so it wouldn't melt the cream. We did this before we even whipped the cream.
And chopped half of a pack or Oreo cookies. We made 3 tubs of ice cream but only one had Oreos in it.
we stirred in the chocolate when it was evenly mixed in and 2 of the tubs were portioned out and labelled Oreos got stirred into the rest and a few reserved for the top.
So simple yet so effective. OH and son are very happy and I have bribery in the freezer for days I need brownie points ;o)
Don't like chocolate how about lime and coconut? Stir together
1 tin condensed milk
1 tin coconut milk
zest and juice of 3 limes
stir together thoroughly place in an airtight container and freeze as above.
