IMG_7842

Hey everyone..

Finally, Pune has some drizzles. Finally ;) .. makes me so happy. But then I miss my Mumbai, big time.

I had kept the recipe ready for a May post, but got delayed and I never got to post it. Well who says ice creams are not for a rainy day :D

We both love eating ice creams so now days we usually have ice cream in the refrigerator once a week. G loves his vanilla and strawberries. While I try a lot of chocolates and fruit based. Saying that I am very picky when it comes to Chocolate ice creams. Most of them aren’t that good, locally. But the strong chocolate flavored ones are to die for. I also am a big fan of a natural fruit based ice creams. I loveee chikoo ice cream! Big time and then would be Tender coconut.

Making ice creams was such a time consuming task, this was the thought that always kept going in my head. Probably the old methods which I’d seen kept me away. Too bad, no? But after I picked this recipe…. voila! So, so easy… I feel like making ice creams every day.. hehe.. Very hassles free job & pretty quick too.

So why wait, go ahead and try to make your loved flavors at home.
