Vanilla Ice-Cream

Vanilla Ice-Cream

Oe la la ... vanilla ice-cream! Home-made ice-cream! A very good recipe to quickly steal someone's heart. This is a very basic vanilla ice-cream recipe that can be transformed into various assorted flavors of ice-cream. The best part of it is that you can play so much with the flavours, it's absolutely fantastic! My favourite is vanilla flavour, made with vanilla pods and vanilla essence and the cinnamon flavour that goes well with the chocolate brownies. I also use this vanilla ice-cream recipe together with my milk tart recipe and gooseberry compote. The texture of this vanilla ice-cream is soft, smooth and silky! I have also made Cinnamon (this is divine with a chocolate dessert for those who love cinnamon!), Litchi and coconut, a berry (strawberry and blueberry), orange,cofee,  brandy, chocolate, rooibos etc. The ideas are endless, the list can go so much on...Blueberry flavour, granadilla and peppermint can also make a perfect ice-cream for those who love that particular flavours! With this vanilla ice-cream you can eat spoons full just as it is, on cones or combine it with wonderful baked winter desserts or splendid summer desserts. It is easy to make, freezes well and once you started making this ice-cream you can be assured that you will look twice in the supermarket to buy ice-cream unless it is Woolworths great quality. We all grew up with ice-cream in the house. I remember I helped my dad making a kind of own variation consisting of nuts, red cherries and marshmallows with normal vanilla ice-cream from the shop that we kept out to unfreeze a bit so that we can add all favourites to it. So go ahead and start making your own vanilla flavoured ice-cream or any other flavour of yours! And add a lovely dessert snack such as a tuille biscuit to your trio of ice-cream in a martini glass!
