Ahoy wonderful ladies, what are we waiting for them. Let us get started with some really easy as well as healthy ice-creams, desserts, and juices.

#1. Fruit Ice-Cream


  • 200g strawberries (as red as you can get), hulled
  • 1 large mango, deseeded and peeled

  • ¼ lemon juiced

  • 3 very ripe bananas peeled

  • 200g condensed milk

  • 600ml double cream

  • 4 kiwi fruit peeled

  • Sprinkles or finely chopped strawberries and mango, to serve


  1. Mash the strawberries, mango, banana in separate bowls.

  2. Add lemon juice into the mashed banana.

  3. Beat the condensed milk and cream in a large bowl until thick and quite stiff. It should look like a clotted cream and divide the mixture between the three bowls.

  4. Add a fruit purée into each bowl.

  5. Transfer each bowl into a freezer container and freeze until solid.

  6. Purée the kiwi sieving out any seeds if you like.

  7. After the bowl mixture is solidified, serve a scoop of each ice cream in sundae dishes and top with the kiwi sauce, sprinkles, or the chopped fruit.

#2.  Strawberry Banana Ice Cream


  • 4 large very ripe bananas

  • 1 lb. strawberries washed and hulled


  1. Peel bananas and strawberries and slice into 1/2 inch pieces.

  2. Arrange the slices in a single layer on a large plate and freeze it from 2 hours to overnight.

  3. Puree the frozen banana and strawberries until the mixture is creamy and smooth. (eventually, both the fruits will come together, only thing is it needs a powerful blender and more patience.)

  4. If you want a soft-serve ice cream consistency, then serve immediately.

  5. If you prefer harder ice cream, then place the pure in a freezer container and freeze.

#3. Mango Banana Ice Cream


  • 2 ripe mangos

  • 1 banana

  • 3 tablespoons condensed milk

  • Optional - A few drops of liquid sweetener of your choice (maple syrup or honey should be fine)


  1. Peel and cut the mangoes and banana into cubes.

  2. Put the mango and the banana pieces on a small baking sheet and freeze (preferably overnight)

  3. Once the fruits are turned solid, place them into the bowl of a food processor or powerful blender. (if the fruits are stuck in the container just run a little warm water over the outside of the container. This will loosen it enough for you to get it out).

  4. Add condensed milk and blend it again.

  5. After a few minutes, you will have a smooth, creamy ice cream. If the sweetness is sweetness is found to be a bit low, add the artificial sweetener/syrup.

#4. Chocolate Ice-Cream Recipe


  • 2 1/2 Cups Milk, full cream

  • 1 Tbsp Custard powder

  • 2 Tbsp Cocoa powder

  • 1 Cup Sugar

  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla essence

  • 1 1/2 Cups Cream

  • For garnish Cherries or nuts


  1. Take the half a cup of the milk and add the custard, cocoa and sugar in it. Mix well.

  2. Heat the half of the milk and till it comes to a boil. Add the custard mixture, and bring to a boil again by stirring continuously.

  3. After it boils, lower the heat and simmer for a half a minute. Turn off the heat and leave to cool.

  4. Once it reaches the room temperature, mix in the cream and vanilla essence and transfer on to a container with a tight lid.

  5. Freeze this container till the ice-cream is almost set. Take out the container and whip up in a blender. Once done place back the blended mixture into the freezer in the same container.

  6. Remember to keep the lid tightly shut, as this avoids crystals from forming. Repeat the step 5 and place the container in the freezer again.

  7. You can adjust the cooling to about two hours after the last blending. Serve garnished with the cherries or nuts.
