Homemade ice cream is intimidating to many but they are super easy to make and tastes delicious. Commercial ice creams stabilisers like plant gum are added for the texture but, we don’t need any of those to make creamy ice cream.
I love the taste of fruit ice creams and especially the seasonal fruits. There are couple outlets that sell these seasonal fruit ice cream but I wanted to make them as natural as possible. This Sitaphal ice cream became an instant hit with family and friends.
You do need an ice cream make or a blender with an ice cream option, If you don’t have one, no worries there is tip to make this delicious ice cream using your regular blender.
Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Makes : 1 kg ice cream
Sitaphal/custard apple pulp : 2 cups + 1/2 cup
Fresh cream: 2 cups
Milk powder : 2 cups
Sugar : 1 1/2 cups
Add all the ingredients in a blender except the 1/2 cup of Sitaphal pulp and blend. (Blendtec takes 45 seconds). If you are using a regular blender, blend until the mixture is smooth. If you have a churner, pour the ice cream into it and put it in the freezer.
Pour the ice cream in containers, add the pulp and mix. Freeze it for 6 hours or overnight.
**If you don’t have an ice cream machine, take the ice cream out of the freezer 3 hours to break sown ice crystals, whisk and return to the freezer until frozen.
