Choc Banana Icey Poles

By | May 28th, 2014|Categories: Ice Cream, Sorbets and Summer Treats|0 Comments

Yesterday we had a little melted chocolate left in the tmx and didn't want to waste it. I added 600ml milk, 1 chopped banana and one tablespoon of honey to it. I blitzed on speed 4 for 30 seconds and froze them into icey poles for the kiddies. We made 6 icey poles and drank the rest with afternoon tea but this recipe would make 12 icey poles in my holders.

Cookies and Cream Icey Poles

By | May 28th, 2014|Categories: Ice Cream, Sorbets and Summer Treats|0 Comments

The other day I was on a cookies and cream roll. I made fudge and hot chocolate. From those I made these icey poles. 50g white chocolate melted in the tmx on at 50 degrees, speed 3. Add 10g crushed chocolate cream biscuits. Mix and add 500mls milk and a dash of vanilla. Sprinkle some extra crushed cookies into each mould. Pour milk mixture into the icey pole moulds and freeze. If you want a creamier icey pole make custard [...]

Quick Chocolate Coconut Ice Creams

By | May 28th, 2014|Categories: Ice Cream, Sorbets and Summer Treats|0 Comments

These are very simple yet tasty. Make up a batch of custard from the EDC. Add 50g of dark chocolate and 50g toasted coconut. Mix to combine and pour into icy pole moulds. An even easier version is to melt the chocolate, add toasted coconut and 600-800mls coconut milk. This won't be as creamy but still yummy.

Cheats Passionfruit Curd Ice Creams

By | May 28th, 2014|Categories: Ice Cream, Sorbets and Summer Treats|0 Comments

Originally posted on our Facebook page 26th November 2013. The other day I posted my Passionfruit Custard Tarts. The recipe only called for half a batch of custard and only a little of the passionfruit curd (also posted). Well here is a way to use up the other half of the custard batch and the remaining curd. Combine 3/4 of the Passionfruit curd (about 1/2 - 3/4 cup depending on your tastes) with half a batch of EDC custard. Pour [...]

Nutella Ice Creams

By | May 28th, 2014|Categories: Ice Cream, Sorbets and Summer Treats|1 Comment

I can't take credit for this idea. The concept of nutella and milk to make ice creams has been floating around online for years. I just changed quantities to suit our tastes. Blitz 100g nutella spread and 500mls milk on speed 5 for 20 seconds. Pour into icey pole moulds and freeze overnight. Simple! Banana or strawberries are a great addition!

Cheats Mixed Berry Ice Creams

A yummy treat for after lunch. This is just a batch of cooked EDC custard and a big handful of mixed berries added and blitzed until smooth. Eat as is or pour into icy pole moulds and freeze. You could use yoghurt and a dash of milk instead of custard. I got 12 from the mix.

Another easy treat for Summer! I make a batch of custard from the EDC and once done and slightly cooled I add a peeled, deseeded mango to it and blitz on speed 9 for 20 secs. Pour into moulds and freeze. You could use yoghurt instead or follow the EDC ice cream recipe.

Chocolate Honey Ice Creams

By | February 13th, 2014|Categories: Ice Cream, Sorbets and Summer Treats|Tags: , |0 Comments

I'm trying to cut down on the refined sugar the boys are eating and have been using honey a little more in my cooking. Baby steps!   The boys love these!   This made 18 ice cream moulds. You can halve the mixture and decrease cooking time by 20%.

Watermelon Pear Ice Blocks

These are so basic that I wasn't going to post but Mr 5 insisted I take a photo for my friends!    My boys loooooove these. It seems an odd combination to me but they love them and gobble them down. A nice healthy after school treat.
