Today's post has no bento. You know what I just came up with an icecream recipe. It tuned out much tastier than I thought. This is probably the best one I've ever made so I wanted to post it before our short summer is over. Actually I think I want an icecream maker! BUT I basically eat iced sweets only during summer so maybe I'm not going to buy it, *maybe*. And as you know, I'm super lazy, always want to make everything in a simple way. This method calls for a food processor for the smooth texture, but no worries, even if you don't have those machines, you could make nice icecream, only stirring icecream mixture by hand is kind of tiring though. And this type of ice cream isn't as smooth as store bought ones, but I'm pretty sure it's worth making it from scratch. The only key point of this recipe is to pick out tasty ingredients. By the way, I thought I would try using jam as a stabilizer. Blueberry jam sounded perfect for flavoring, so yes, it worked great! However, I think you can use any sorts of jam or jelly (for bread) you like. So it would be the best way you can *rescue* abandoned jam from the fridge. I simplified the measurements (as usual) so anybody could make it with ease, (after all that's right up my alley lol). You can adjust the amounts of the ingredients depending on your taste and fridge situation. I used yogurt for improvement of the texture. So should I name this *frozen yogurt* or *yogurt ice cream*??
Simple Fruit Ice Cream Recipe
About 1 cup of your favorite fruit jam/jelly
1 cup heavy cream
2 cups plain yogurt
If you make this without a food processor
Place the bowl of the mix in the freezer. After part of the mix is frozen, remove the bowl from the freezer. Then paddle or whisk well, then freeze again. Repeat this process a few times to make it smooth while freezing. You can use a stick blender if you have.
If your finished product is less sweet than you expected it to be
Serve it with fruit sauce, preserve, or sweetened condensed milk, etc... on it.
