Used different ingredients. Try omitting the lemon and adding vanilla extract (I added approx 1 teaspoon) for vanilla ice-cream. I also added small chunks of vanilla fudge. The basic recipe could probably be made into a variety of flavours - experiment! - 20 Sep 2010


Delicious!! Makes you wonder why the shop-bought ice-cream has to have so much rubbish in it! This recipe is so much easier than usual ice-cream recipes that involve whisking or stirring after a few hours. - 12 Sep 2010


A favorite with my friends. Refreshing on a hot day or just basically scrummy anytime.... Easy to make too. - 23 Apr 2012
