As a child we all have enjoyed having Milkmaid in some or the other form. Milkmaid sweets, kheer etc were a part of growing up, but do you know that it is also great for making ice creams.
If you want your homemade ice creams to be creamy and sweet just as good as the market ones, then try these lip smacking recipes.
Being a homemade version, it is preservative free and your kids will love having something which they saw being made in front of them….
Chico Milkmaid ice-cream– De-seed and puree 250gm chicoo in a blender. In a bowl combine 1/2 tin of milk-made with 200ml milk and 250gm of fresh cream, mix all the ingredients well and freeze for 2 hours.
You can also use a blender to mix all the ingredients to make it fluffy. Now add chicoo pulp, mix well and freeze for 4 more hours.
Tropical Mango Ice cream– In a bowl whisk 1 cup fresh cream and keep the bowl chilled by placing a container full of ice and ice cold water under the bowl in which you will whisk the cream.
