It has been warm and my limited freezer space has made it difficult to get out my ice cream maker bowl attachment. What follows are some no-ice-cream-maker-needed ways to enjoy something cold, inspired from various sources on the internet, books and a recipe vaguely based off what came in our CSA box.
Some peaches, peeled & sliced
Freeze until mostly solid
Put through a food processor with a little salt and lemon juice
Serve ASAP, freeze whatever is left (best the first day, after that it gets rock-hard)
Some strawberries washed & hulled
Run through a food processor with 1/4 c. sugar and some lemon juice
Pressed through a strainer to remove any excess seeds
Serve over ice-cream, refrigerate what is left, keeps 3-4 days in the fridge
I attempted to make spaghetti eis, but I don’t think my ice cream was soft enough, it turned into a yummy, melty mess.
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- splash vanilla
- 1 carton heavy cream (small carton)
- 1 cup peanut butter
- some peanut butter cups, chopped
- combine sweetened condensed milk & vanilla, in separate bowl whip cream until stiff
- fold cream into sweetened condensed milk, fold in peanut butter & peanut butter cups
- freeze until firm, eat
I also tossed in a handful of chocolate chips, and left large blobs of peanut butter. The children deemed that it had “too much peanut butter” and next time I think I may add a fudge swirl to balance it out more.
