Making endless flavours of Icecream at home without an Icecream Maker is possible & its the easiest dessert you can prepare in Summer & delight the family / surprise your guests ...
Get a big tub of Plain Vanilla (store bought) Icecream. Scoop out about 4 cups of icecream in a big bowl & let it soften at room temperature.
FRESH FRUIT FLAVOR OPTIONS
For every 4 cups of icecream, you can add about 1 to 1.5 cups of fresh pureed fruit.
Mango, Strawberry, Raspberry, Kiwi fruit, Chickoo ... any family favorite fruit can work.
Clean the fruit & cut 2 cups of the fresh fruit in a bowl. Add sugar equal to the amount required to sweeten that much fruit.
Mango will need less sugar, Raspberry/Strawberry will need more (so taste after mixing)
Let the fruit & sugar combination sit at room temperature till the plain vanilla icecream softens.
Once vanilla softens, blend the fresh fruit + sugar combination in a blender. Add it to the softened icecream.
You can finely chop nuts of your choice & add too .. Some good options are Elaichi powder, Cinnamon powder, walnut, almonds, kaaju, pista (any combination that your family likes alongwith fresh fruit)
Mix everything thoroughly well. Put the blended fruit icecream in an airtight container to set again.
After 12-18 hours, serve delicious fruit & dry fruit flavored scoops :-)
You can also add about a cup of chocolate chips to make your own chocolate chip icecream.
Crush chocolate cookies (like Oreo) & add for a cookie kind of flavor
The possibilities & combinations are endless to explore when you use this method of Icecream making.
Get readymade Cones from the market & serve the delicious scoops on cones.
Or in a sundae glass, add different flavors, pour chocolate syrup over it, insert a wafer biscuit & a flavorful sundae is ready to eat !!!
Prepare & enjoy !!!!
