Happy Ice cream day everyone! Yes, its National Ice cream day. I too didn't know that untill yesterday. Apparently, it is celebrated on the 3rd Sunday of July. I had this post ready yesterday, but I delayed it for one more day to make it special :).
Ice cream - one such dessert that knows no age limit. I am not a very big fan of it but when I crave for it, the thought just does not leave me in peace untill I have it. I have tried to make these at home many a times, but it just does not get creamy and rich as the store bought ones. It remains as a huge ice cube that is flavoured - difficult to scoop out and nowhere close to what you get from the market. The thought of buying an ice cream maker that I may end up using for few months of summer, has always seemed to be unreasonable. Sheela from Korporate2Kitchen had shared her recipe sometime back and I was curious to try it. With the summer getting to its peak, we had all the more reason to give it a try. I tweaked the recipe slightly while I gave it a try to cut down few calories. Still it turned out to be perfect - just like the store bought ones and the highlight being that, no ice cream maker was required for it.
After dinner, when I offered ice cream to my husband, he was hesitant thinking of my earlier ice cream experiments. But when he ate some, he was all in to go for another round of it :). These days post dinner, he serves ice cream. He just can't wait for me to be done with the dishes to serve him with it :). So, here it is.
