In the hope of some more sunshine making an appearance...we made some strawberry ice cream.
All you need are some frozen strawberries, a little cream and a few spoonfuls of icing sugar. I have to confess that it isn't my recipe. You can find that over here. But, it was super easy and quick to make.
To blend the ingredients I used our Braun hand blender - the hand held plunger, rather than the whizzy container. I am not entirely convinced that it was man enough for the job as our ice cream was not as smooth as we would have liked. Maybe I froze the strawberries for too long? I don't know, but it was delicious!
Our ice cream looks a little melted, that is because I kept whizzing it to try and get it smoother. So, don't over-whizz yours, unless you like melted ice cream.
Do you think that this idea would work for mango or banana or some other fruity ice cream?
