Hello and welcome to my ice cream site!
I’m Nate: a kiwi, enjoying life and making ice cream in the beautiful city of Melbourne.
Back in 2015 I discovered the enjoyment that comes from making homemade ice cream for myself, friends and family. In truth, it was mostly for myself 😉 Since then, I’ve spent a lot of time working on improving my ice cream making skills and I add all my best stuff to this website.
What are the recipes I make here
- Ice cream
- Pretty much any dessert is fair game.
My recipes are kept simple and focus on the quality of the ingredients. Fresh milk and cream, strawberries, vanilla beans, organic cacao. Fresh, in season ingredients will take your ice cream from zero to hero.
How to make ice cream the easy way
Most of the ice cream I make is with an ice cream machine so I recommend you get yourself one. You can get a cheap one from Cuisinart for around $100 and they are well worth the money.
The ice cream machine you can see pictured is a Breville Smartscoop which is the one I use. It has a lot more features like setting the hardness of the ice cream and keeping the ice cream cool when it’s finished churning.
If you don’t have an ice cream machine you can still make frozen desserts. You simply follow my recipes to make the base. Then instead of adding to the machine, put it straight into the freezer. You’ll need to remove it as it starts to harden so that you can whip it until smooth. Then keep freezing until hard.
