“Life is like an ice cream cone, you have to lick it one day at a time. ”― Charles M Schulz
So summer is all set to bid its goodbyes for the year and the rain gods have been more and more generous with us off late , I thought its a great time to share a couple of frozen desserts I have up my sleeve. Ofcourse my ice cream eating remains blissfully unhampered by the weather forecasts- Infact I like eating iceceam even more when its raining !
This blueberry swirl ice-cream is so simple , no fuss and comes together so quickly. I got the idea from a food magazine whose name eludes me now. I will not sit here and tell you this is the best ice-cream you’ll ever have . But for a homemade ice-cream with no eggs and which requires no machine – it is pretty darn delicious!
The ice-cream base is one made with sweetened condensed milk and heavy whipping cream . A tried and tested combination that in different proportions is all over the internet. Blueberries are cooked down with a little sugar to make a syrup that is then swirled into the vanilla ice cream base. You could leave out the fruit or you could sub with other berries or fruits of your choice . But the tartness of the blueberry and the deep purple ripple against the white ice-cream worked for us!!!
This ice-cream is rich and smooth , and the blueberry swirl adds that little oomph to it! What more should I say.. its ice-cream ! How can it NOT be good!
The only thing I don’t like about ice creams is taking pictures of them! However fast I move (and i am usually not a fast mover!) , it WILL go all melty on me before I get a decent click! Its like the Murphys law of ice-cream and photography!
