This is a cleaning the fridge ice cream.
The strawberries has been in my freezer for many many months. More than 9 months, I guess. And a punnet of blueberries almost on the brink of being totally dried up by the fridge, half a lemon left from a rhubarb juice, a carton of half finished yogurt and a bit of whipping cream left in a large carton.
What better way than to use them all up in an ice cream. So I made this up.. and the outcome was really good. But weirdly, this melted faster than my Blueberry Ripple Yogurt Ice Cream, although this version contains more gelatin. The actual fact is that this version contains more cream than the former version. Maybe that’s why.. maybe.. I’m saying maybe.
I also made some into popsicles
