I thought I'd share a simple but oh so tasty recipe with you.
Last Christmas I was given an ice cream maker (yay!) as I'm a huge ice cream fan.
So I've been on a bit of a journey to find the best ice cream recipes out there.

This one was a mix up of a few recipes and ended up becoming a low fat recipe (win-win eh?)
So here it is, My Rocky Road Ice Cream 

1½ cups skim milk
200g condensed skim milk (sweetened)
¼ cup cocoa powder
1 tbsp boiling water
¾ cup light cream
1 tsp vanilla bean paste (or 1 tsp Vanilla Essence)
1 cup marshmallows, chopped
½ cup Allen's Ripe Raspberries
1/4 cup chopped peanuts
Dissolve cocoa powder in 1 tbsp boiling water.
Combine milk, Condensed Milk, cream, cocoa powder and vanilla together in a bowl; mix well.
Refrigerate mixture until completely chilled.
Pour Mix into Ice cream maker and churn according to manufacturer’s instructions
Combine marshmallows, raspberries and peanuts in a bowl.
Once finished churning stir through the marshmallow mixture.
It's so quick to make and tastes super yummy!
It kind of has the same flavour as a Chocolate Paddlepop - Definitely more on the cocoa side of town.

So tell me, 
What's your favourite ice cream flavour?   


  1. It was delicious! :)
    Except the candy raspberries go super hard in the freezer, so you've gotta watch your teeth!

  2. I can't choose a favourite flavour =P I love too many flavours of ice cream but chocolate would be one of my favourites =] I've never made ice cream before, but it sounds really fun!Your rocky road ice cream sounds really yummy- I haven't had rocky road ice cream in ages!

  3. Making icecream is really fun - and you don't even need a machine.
    Of course you could also make it easy by just creating flavours using store bought icecream as a base - that's how I started :P

  4. My favorite? well I would have to say chocolate! but I have been studying the craft of making ice cream, more complicated than I thought.

    I made SourSop Ice Cream with lilac flowers you can see it on my blog, it was gone the same day I made it!

  5. Sounds intriguing, I'll have to check it out! :)
