Ice cream is not a treat that you can immediately satisfy if you do not have it already in your freezer or have a nearby sari-sari store in your area within walking distance. Good news is that you don’t need to make ice cream from scratch nor do you need to wait for it to freeze.
If you have the ingredients to make these easy ice cream treats, you can satisfy that ice cream craving in minutes! You don’t even need a whisk or even need to freeze the treat before enjoying it.
You may know of these treats as milkshakes or simply shakes or even smoothies. The big difference is that this is made super thick that it is almost like a soft-serve ice cream. You also don’t need actual ice cream to make it. You can make it without and use frozen fruits instead to make it ice cold. You can use the cream and the fresh fruits, chocolate, or even better, frozen fruits to make it taste better.
Here are the ingredients you need to make this easy ice cream idea:
- • frozen fruits
- • a sweetener like sugar, to taste
- • chilled whipping cream
We scoured supermarkets and found that there are many frozen fruits in the frozen food section, especially frozen berries. Grab one of these or use fresh fruits and freeze them overnight. Bananas are especially fantastic as ice cream!
Once you have your ingredients, to put all of these ingredients together into ice cream, you’ll also need a blender. That’s all you need to make this brilliant recipe from Diethood.
Want to try it out? Here’s what to do:
- 1 In the jug of a blender, add frozen fruit.
- 2 Add sweetener if desired.
- 3 Close and process until the fruits are chopped or pureed.
- 4 Add chilled whipping cream.
- 5 Close and process again until smooth.
No frozen fruit? Try fresh fruit and ice cubes. You can even use a fruit jam or even a chocolate spread for a chocolate treat.
You can even use milk instead of cream and make shakes that you can drink instead to keep you cool in this heat! Let these blender ice-cream ideas be your new favorite summer treat!
