Making traditional ice cream is a rewarding but labour-intensive process. It takes several hours and requires a bit of a knack, especially to produce consistent results. It also requires an ice cream machine, which I don’t have, and you might not either.
So, here’s a way to make instant ice cream which doesn’t require any special kit, a spare afternoon, or a lot of experience. The results are affordable, delicious and healthy too, perfect for a stress-free pudding.
The basic formula is this. Put one part dairy, like yoghurt, with two parts frozen fruit in a food processor or a blender. Add something sweet, like honey or golden syrup, and mix it. That’s it.
