Ingredients for sinners … Continue reading Creamy Greek Yoghurt Ice Cream
I know what you’re thinking. But really, it’s one of the best ice-cream flavours I’ve ever tried – and believe me, I know my ice-creams.

You will need: … Continue reading Horseradish ice-cream
My first taste of this delicious treat was at a friend’s house this New Year, and she was kind enough to make a copy of the recipe for me. This ice cream is so quick and easy to make that I just had to share it with you all. It’s really yummy with tarts, crumbles, stewed fruit or even just on its own. Ingredients: 60g … Continue reading Honeycomb Ice Cream
