With summer upon us in Australia, the kids and I took the opportunity to make our own ice-cream from a recipe I had stashed away, and it certainly was delicious !!! It really does one good to make your own 'standard favourites' as you soon realise (in this case) just how unhealthy they are.....I LOVE ice-cream, but have been alot more cautious about eating it since we made this....it is now much more of a treat for me, and less of a regular thing. So if you have a spare afternoon this summer, grab the kids and mix up some home made ice cream...fill in your school holidays, and delight your taste buds as a special treat !
