Summer is around the corner…felt a few waves of heat in the last couple of days. It’s the season to make my homemade ice creams again! 🤓🤗🤗 Yayyy!
All those of you, who have have been a regular around here will know how I adore making my own ice creams! 😍 If you are a fan of fruity ice creams then do have a look at my Orange Ice Cream or try my Custard and Rose Ripple Ice Cream. And if you’re a fan of Popsicles…then look no further😬
Well, coming back to the Grape Ice Cream….why grapes!? Because I had some sitting in my refrigerator and they were slightly sour. I could have easily macerated them with some sugar & vanilla extract…and they go really well with pancakes or any sponge cake. Sounds yummy…isn’t it. But I wanted to try an ice cream with them.
Wondering why the colour isn’t purple…well it won’t be considering the ingredients used here, which includes freshly pressed grape juice. So no preservatives or added colours!! 💃🏻 I took inspiration from the net..and made a few changes here and there to suit our tastebuds. Let’s get started…
Equipment: measuring cups/ spoons, a blender, a freezer-safe container.
2 cups fresh grape juice (use canned if you wish)
200 ml whipping cream (I used Amul)
1 cup sweetened milk powder
1/2 cup castor sugar or more as per your taste
2 tsp lemon juice (optional)
Squeeze the grapes in the juicer to extract their juice and set it aside.
In a blender jar, add the cream, castor sugar& milk powder. Give it a blend. Add the grape juice & lemon juice next. Blend again for a minute.
Pour this mixture into the container you have chosen to set the ice cream in…and put it in the freezer for about 3 hours. By this time, the Ice cream will have begun to set around the edges. Blend it once again for a minute in the blender. Pour back into the container & let this freeze for 6-7 hours. That’s it. Thaw it at room temperature for 5 mins before serving it.
Wasn’t that too easy 😉😉 go ahead…make some!
