Summer is here and ice creams, sorbets and coolers are all we can think about. While going to an ice cream parlour could be a fun outing with the kids, making a tasty treat for them in the house will be something special. Now you can take care of your frozen craving from home.
There are a number of ways to make ice cream at home. One of them is using an ice cream maker, which without a doubt, churns out light fluffy ice creams. Now the lack of space or just the thought of having another gadget on your kitchen counter could be stopping you from buying one. But that doesn't mean you can't make an ice cream.
We have two recipes for you that don't need an ice cream maker. Both the recipes will give you delicious ice cream moments to relish!
Mango Ice Cream

Note: Don't whip the cream too much or it may turn grainy and buttery. This should be consumed within two days or ice crystals will form. Also, the colour of your ice cream will depend on the kind of mango you buy. A deep orange mango will produce a vibrant coloured ice cream.
You could also substitute other fruits for the mango -peaches and strawberries work really well.

This recipe can be used as a base to make a number of other flavours as well. Exclude the Oreos.
For Mint-Chip Ice Cream: 1 teaspoon peppermint extract + 1 cup mini chocolate chips + green food colouring
For Chocolate Ice Cream: 3/4 cup cocoa powder (sifted) + 4 ounces melted cooled chocolate
For Cinnamon Roll Ice Cream: 3 tablespoons butter, melted + 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Tip: The outside temperature is extremely high in our country. Keep the mixing bowl and the products used cold so that the chances of crystals forming in the ice cream are reduced. We recommend leaving your bowl in the freezer overnight so that it's nice and frozen.
If you add things like fudge or any flavouring to your cream and it's not cold, it sinks to the bottom of the bowl melting the ice cream. When it get to the bottom is freezes into chunks, giving your ice cream a gritty taste.
