One Ice Cream a Day Keeps the Hot Weather Away

As we are now firmly in the month of August, the warm weather here in the UK might be approaching to its end (now I might just have jinxed myself with the unpredictability of British weather lol.) With the scorching hot weather, I have completely lost count with the number of ice creams I had eaten in the past months. 😛🍦🍦🍦 But, have you ever tried to make your own ice cream at home? With homemade ice creams, you are free to create any flavours you can imagine and the sky is the limit!

Ice cream is essentially a flavoured, frozen custard, and it is actually a lot more straightforward and easy to make than one may think otherwise (at least in my case lol.) All you really need is a plastic box and a freezer, alongside some stirrings to do and a bit of patience. The first flavour I made is one of my absolute favourite – mango! 😋😋 You can check out my recipe below, and it is also adaptable for other ice cream flavours!

What is your favourite ice cream flavour? 😉

Mango Ice Cream


300g single cream

100g caster sugar

350g mango puree

250g double cream

1 tbsp lemon juice


  1. Heat single cream at a lot heat, the stir in sugar until it has completely dissolved.
  2. Pour the cream in a container, then add in the mango puree, double cream and lemon juice. Mix using a whisk until well-combined.
  3. Place the ice cream in the freezer for about 3 hours, or until semi-frozen. Use a fork to fold the ice cream evenly, starting from the edges.
  4. Place it back to the freezer to freeze overnight, or until it is completely frozen before serving.

      1. Depends on the time of year. Love making fruit sorbets: lemon, lime, mandarin, mango, raspberry, blueberry, apricot, basil. Ice creams include coffee, chocolate, strawberry, vanilla, cheesecake, pain d’epice, brown bread, rice pudding. It’s easier when you’ve an ice cream maker.
