Festive Christmas Ice Cream – the perfect alternative to Christmas Pud.
Guest Feature by Adrian York:
I was very excited to be asked by the lovely people at Currys to review the Kenwood IM200 ice cream maker on behalf of London-Unattached. The challenge was to create a seasonal Christmas ice cream!
Christmas Eve chez York is traditionally spent downing mince pies and Advocaat whilst waiting for the kids to drop off so Santa can work his magic. It’s a magical moment of the year when the world seems to stop and take a deep breath and so it became the inspiration for my Yuletide Ice Cream. It is perfect on its own or to accompany Christmas pudding. The ‘sweet cream’ base for the ice cream comes from the Ben & Jerry’s Homemade Ice Cream Dessert Book.
The Kenwood ice cream maker works really effectively, with some good design touches such as the chute for pouring the ice cream blend into the bowl and is easy to clean and assemble. So I’d like to say a big seasonal thank you to the people at Currys for sending me the machine to review.
Editors Note: Even I am tempted by this lush Christmas Ice Cream. And the Kenwood ice cream maker makes it all seem so easy. It’s a veggie friendly recipe, so why not try!
