Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream

I have been wanting to have a crack at making vegan chocolate ice cream for ages. So this week I finally took the plunge and made some. This recipe was fairly easy to make and for those of you on a vegan diet, I think you'll really enjoy this one. Personally, I prefer a good old tub of ice cream made from dairy products. Being from NZ, we consumed a lot of milk as kids and I don't think I could ever give it away. For ice cream, it gives your dessert a more creamy texture that I love. In saying ...

Cashew Kulfi Recipe

Kulfi is a traditional dessert from the Indian sub-continent that is similar to ice cream, only denser and more icy. You may not think that sounds overly appealing - after all, that's exactly what you're trying to avoid when making ice cream. I decided to give this kulfi recipe a try anyway as I've heard good things about it. The end result was really pleasing. It was about 40°C in Melbourne when I made this recipe so it was challenging to take a decent photo. But what I discovered was this ...

Panna Cotta Recipe

Enjoy the simplicity of an Italian classic Panna cotta originated from Italy and is a delicious cold dessert made from double cream. It is common to use vanilla bean in this recipe; however, you can easily get creative and add different flavours such as coffee or raspberry.

If you want to make a batch of sorbet and devour it in one sitting, then this recipe works great. Consider lemon juice for balancing flavour Plums can vary a lot in terms of sweetness. If you're using plums that are very sweet, I'd recommend adding some lemon juice to ...

Lavender Ice Cream Recipe

Lavender is a common edible herb that works well in baked foods. It also works very well as a flavour base and makes superb lavender ice cream. Health benefits of lavender You'll be pleased to know that lavender has some great health benefits. I won't go as far to say this ice cream is a healthy snack, but this dairy dessert does contain Vitamin A, calcium and iron. That's better than many other sweet treats on the market.You'll need to keep in mind that this herb can easily become quite ...

Peanut Butter and Pretzel Ice Cream

Having spent 10 days on holiday in New York earlier in 2016, I was really excited to see a new ice cream range launched by Connoisseur here in Australia. During our holiday we visited Bedford-Stuyvesant, a suburb of Brooklyn. I knew the food that comes from this part of New York was awesome. That's why I had to get my hands on a tub of Connoisseur Bed Stuy ice cream. This is a fantastic sweet creamy vanilla ice cream stuffed with a combination of salty peanut butter swirl and choc coated ...
