Summer is here and cold things are more than welcome for everyone in the family. Popsicles is probably the favorite dessert or even snack for the heat. Though I have been making a lot of desserts and posting them here, I realized I never posted an Ice-Cream! And recently Lebice sent me a popsicle kit, I knew I was making something delicious for the blog.
As it is the first ice cream recipe coming on the blog, I thought I would start with a really basic recipe; Vanilla Ice-Cream. We both love the white ice-cream, both the one we used to enjoy in India and the creamy ones we get in the US. The ice cream there was made from real milk, sugar and seasoning. Here, I see it is more of cream and condensed milk. I made this the American way, super creamy and made from just those two ingredients and some vanilla extract. The result was awesome and to jazz things a little bit, I dipped a few in chocolate and added sprinkles to a few.
Coming to the popsicle maker, the one in this post is by Lebice. I ordered mine from Amazon. There are six popsicle moulds, a tray to keep the moulds upright, a tiny funnel to pour in the mixture to the molds and a cute little brush to help clean all the cream when you are done making. I loved this set for all kinds of popsicles and the best part is the cup like bottom of the mold that can hold all the melting popsicle water/milk without staining the clothes. It is so nice that a small modification like that makes life easier! Not to forget that the mold is perfectly smooth, making popsicles that are just like the candies from India! Easy to use, easy to clean and nice bright colored sticks.
So waste no more time and read on. The recipe is super easy, and needs just THREE simple ingredients to make. Surprise your family with vanilla popsicles and have a great summer.
Heavy Whipping Cream 2 cups
Condensed Milk ¾ cup
Vanilla Extract 1 tsp
Chill the bowl and hand mixer for ten minutes. In the bowl add whipping cream. Whip till you get soft peaks.
Then, add the condensed milk and vanilla extract. Beat again to a homogenous mixture.
Add the mixture to the popsicle molds. Alternatively add to a pan. Freeze for 4-6 hours.
To create a chocolate coating on top, melt chocolate candy in a bowl. Dip each popsicle into the chocolate and add nuts or sprinkles. Serve!
