Have you ever had some leftover fruits that are good to eat but you know nobody wants and you just can’t seem to throw away? Well, my mom either froze them for later use or made juice out of them. Me? I decided to make Ice Cream! With this simple & flawless recipe, you will blow everyone’s minds with your creation. What’s good about the recipe is that you can almost use any kind of fruit you’d like, you can even add whatever crosses your mind from nuts to leftover brownies! The secret is in making the perfect base, then throwing in whatever crosses your mind. There’s absolutely no need for an expensive ice cream maker. All you need for this recipe is a regular mixer, a saucepan and preferably a glass container with a lid. But then again, if you don’t have one, you can use any deep, rectangular, square or circular tray and just cover with cling film when in the freezer.

Now enough with the talking, here’s the recipe!

Directions:

  1. In a small saucepan, add your cherries (or desired fruit) over medium heat with 1 tablespoon of water and 1 teaspoon sugar & stir until sugar is dissolved (sugar is optional, according to sweetness of fruit). Allow to boil for a few minutes until natural juices are extracted and slightly thickened.
  2. Remove from heat & allow to cool in the fridge.
  3. Beat cream over high speed until stiff peaks are formed, be careful not to over-beat!
  4. Add condensed milk, vanilla & gently fold using a spatula.
  5. Add Chocolate chips & again, gently fold.
  6. Take out your fruit & add to mix, keeping some of the fruit & sauce aside for garnishing.
  7. Gently swirl in your fruit until evenly distributed & colour streaks are visible in your ice cream.
  8. Pour your mix into glass container.
  9. Top off with the remaining fruit & sauce (GET CREATIVE!)
  10. Freeze 4-5 hours or until completely frozen.
