No Churn Lemongrass Ice Cream Recipe

There’s something about the lemongrass flavor that I really enjoy. It’s used extensively in South East Asian cooking which makes it particularly appropriate that I made this on a trip to Thailand. Lemongrass in a savory dish is one thing but combined with sugar its amazing! You have to like lemongrass to enjoy this flavor… Read More »

Keto Cookies & Cream Ice Cream Recipe

I made this for my family as no less than three family members were doing the keto diet at the time and I was basically torturing them each week with my regular ice cream batches and photos. The Keto diet is very restrictive on carbs so that rules out any normal ice cream recipe that… Read More »

No Churn Tamarind Ice Cream Recipe

I conceived of this recipe while on a trip to Thailand where tamarind is a common ingredient in dishes and you also see candied/sugared tamarind snacks in 7/11. Tamarind has quite a sour flavor so I thought it would make an interesting combination with the sweetness of ice cream and, I must confess, I was… Read More »

No Churn Dragon Fruit Ice Cream Recipe

‘Dragon Fruit’ is an interesting looking fruit with a good but subtle flavor. They’re commonly found in South East Asia and that’s where I first came across them but they’re actually from Mexico originally (officially named ‘Pitaya’). There’s two main types, one with white flesh and one with pink or red. The skin of both… Read More »

No Churn Coconut and Granola Ice Cream Recipe

Who doesn’t love a big bowl of healthy (or not so healthy) granola in the morning to get your day off to a good start? I know I do but I have a sensitivity to lactose so that generally rules out milk (although ice cream isn’t as bad). I often have mine with yoghurt which… Read More »

No Churn Pandan Leaf Ice Cream Recipe

Pandan leaves are used extensively as an ingredient in South East Asian cuisine, including Thailand where I was when I made this batch. They’re also used to make a tea which you might be given if you go to a traditional Thai massage shop, after your sessions is finished. My Thai friend gave me fresh… Read More »

The world’s most popular soft drink combined with the world’s most popular dessert, what do you get? Coco cola flavoured ice cream! This is an easy no churn recipe I created to try this ‘match made in heaven’ combination. Did it work? Not really. I made it from Coke as you can see in the… Read More »

No Churn Lemongrass, Chilli & Ginger Ice Cream Recipe

This was my first batch of homemade ice cream on my latest trip to Thailand so I wanted to make something interesting and different with some local flavors. My Thai friends were a bit skeptical at first, mostly to the prospect of ice cream with chilli, but I think most of them were pleasantly surprised… Read More »

Mini Ice Cream Christmas Puddings

I made these for Christmas last year (2017) and they turned out to be pretty tasty but a lot of trouble to make and, as such, didn’t look as good as I’d hoped. Still, nice to do something a bit different with my ice cream making for this recipe. Yes, I know they’re not that pretty… Read More »

No Churn Thai Tea Ice Cream Recipe

You’ve probably come across this beverage in your favorite Thai restaurant or in the street food stalls in Thailand itself. It’s a fantastic way to cool down and power up in the heat and humidity of South East Asia. Typically the drink consists of strongly brewed Thai Tea (the most popular brand is Pantai) served… Read More »
