Toffee Brownie Ice Cream

I made brownies for my son and his friends and had half a tray leftover (always bake extra!) so as the ice cream recipes were going down so well with everyone, I figured I could make an ice cream from the leftovers. It worked! Really well!!

Following the basic method used for some of the other ice cream recipes, I changed and added ingredients to try and get that lovely rich toffee flavour with bites of soft, squidgy brownie throughout. Result!

Raspberry Ripple Kirsch Ice Cream

Definitely one of my favourite ice creams so far, this delicious and very pretty no churn ice cream recipe looks so good. Adding kirsch to it just gives it a little kick but you can leave it out if it’s for all ages.

You probably have most of the ingredients already in the house so why not have a go at making it? It will store in the freezer for a month but it won’t last that long!! It’s delicious scooped into cones or pop a few scoops into a bowl with some fresh raspberries and a drizzle of the left over raspberry sauce for a lovely dessert.

Key Lime Pie

Anything with citrus is always a winner at ours and I’ve been wanting to make a Key Lime Pie for a good while now. My son has been asking for one. He doesn’t eat many desserts so when he asked, I decided to bite the bullet and make one.

It’s full of zingy lime and has a lovely buttery base. Both only need a short time in the oven and some fridge time to be ready. It’s rich and indulgent so I’ll leave that there with you!

We’re not big fans of cream so I was asked to leave it off but finishing this off with a flourish of whipped cream and decorating with some grated lime zest would make it a wonderful centerpiece.

Chocolate Chip Minty Oreo Ice Cream

While doing my shopping, I spotted a real bargain. Packets of Oreo Mint Biscuits for only €1.00 and had to buy them. I figured I would work out some way to incorporate them into a recipe and as it’s summer, I had a go at a no churn ice cream using the biscuits and of course adding chocolate chips, well you would have to … 😉

Make the day before you need it. I use a glass container which is longer than a standard 2lb loaf tin but a plastic or metal container would work well too.

Simple & Quick Banoffee Pie

I’m not a fan of Banoffee Pie but I was asked to make it by my nephew so I went ahead and found a great, easy and quick recipe and it got lots of thumbs up from the tasters so it’s a keeper! I used the Nestle Carnation Caramel tin which speeds up everything.

I used digestive biscuits for the base because with the combination of banana and caramel, you don’t want the base fighting for attention. Let the stars of the show shine 🙂

Strawberry Ice Cream

What else would be the perfect summer dessert than homemade strawberry ice cream?! This no churn, very simple and quick ice cream recipe is from the US and I’ve converted the quantities from cups to grams so you don’t have to 🙂

Fresh strawberries and some strawberry jam give this ice cream the delicious flavour and a lovely marble effect in every slice. You do need to give it a minimum of 12/14 hours in the freezer and then let it sit for about 10 mins before cutting or scooping. I tend to leave all my ice cream in the freezer for 24 hours before using.

Rum, Raisin & Chocolate Ice Cream

An easy, no churn ice cream recipe that’s full of the excellent combination of rum and raisins with the added twist of orange zest and chocolate. Top with some chocolate curls and cool down in style!

Make this recipe in a 1lb loaf tin or your own plastic container, I guessed at a 2lb size but it’s too big. Don’t worry about the rum being strong flavoured as it’s heated with the raisins so you tone it down a bit (but not too much 😉 )

Oh excuse the pictures! The end product photo was left in my eldest son’s hands and his artistic abilities are somewhat limited ….
