Homemade Vanilla Icecream...

QUICK VANILLA ICECREAM
1.5 cups full cream milk (I think it is about 15 years since I bought full cream)
1.25 cups cream (not the thickened kind - hard to get on a Sunday in my town!)
1/2 cup caster sugar (not in picture)
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
~
My special freezer bowl was put in the freezer yesterday. I whipped all the above ingredients together in a normal bowl for about 2 minutes then had to refrigerate the mixture for 2 hours.
~
Now place the mixture in the special freezer bowl and start whipping for 15 minutes...
~
This was at about 8 minutes...
~
This is at the 13 minute mark...
~
and this is after 15 minutes of whipping and freezing ...

Brianna wanted Clinkers crushed up and mixed through it so I dolloped out a bowl for me which I will have with strawberries later tonight...
~
Did you eat Clinkers as a kid - suck all the chocolate off then try to guess what colour you had in your mouth?
~
Clinkers are green, yellow and pink - how funny that the first half of the bag that I tipped out and hammered into smithereens were only green and yellow (?) ...
~
There were pink ones in the second half that I crushed...
how good does it look?
~
I am super impressed with the gadget so far and can't wait to give a mango/passionfruit sorbet a go but that might be next Sunday - diet wise I can't keep trying all these yummy things!

  2. Clinkers and homemade ice cream looks delicious. I often put crushed Maltesers in my ice cream but I'll have to try Clinkers next time. I also love that you put Rolo's in your cookies too, another of my favourite lollies.

  3. Joolz I always find with clinkers that the majority of them are green as I don't like the green ones as much as the pink and yellow...or maybe they are trying to tell me I shouldn't be eating them:0)

  5. Is that freezer bowl made especially for your mixer? Is it a KitchenAid mixer?

    I am finding it hard to read your blog now you have changed the background.....just thought I'd mention it.....

  6. Oh my goodness!!! Clinkers! How I loved them, especially the green ones. I haven't had them since I was a kid. I have an ice cream machine but all the recipes I have come across have a cooked vanilla custard as the base. Way too much work! Your ice cream looks divine!
