Blueberry Summer Solstice yoghurt ice cream

23/06/2016 at 23:56

Ah – Swedish Midsummer is upon us again! As plenty of Swedes prepare for the festivities (typically centred around partying, eating and – definitely – drinking), we, too, will turn to Mother Nature for some blue delights. No, I’m neither referring to Smurfs, melancholic love affairs, or pagan frolicking with forest spirits like the Hulder. I’m talking about blueberries!  Blueberries […]

Strawberry Mascarpone ice cream

Imagine my happiness when I got hold of a case of fresh strawberries the other day! A sign of early spring or of globalisation? Possibly both, but in any case, I decided to transform some of the ‘red gold’ into a royal treat – Strawberry Mascarpone ice cream!    Fresh berries deserve a fresh ice cream and in my view, the Philadelphia-style (American style) ice […]

Cookies and ice cream is a great combination: not only because it is tasty, but also because the cookies tend to improve the consistency of ice cream.

Read on!     Oreo cakes were introduced in the US already in 1912, and is nowadays slated to be the US best-selling cookie. Clearly, […]

No summer is truly complete without a good strawberry ice cream! And this is one of the tastier (and easy to make) strawberry ice creams that I have tested – and this regardless of what you normally think about balsamic vinegar!   Philadelphia (or American) style: a perfect choice for fresh fruit-ice creams Italian and French style custard-based ice creams may […]

Coffee Rhum and Walnut ice cream

“Fifteen men on the dead man’s chest– Yo-ho-ho, and a …  a scope of Coffee Rhum & Walnut ice cream?” Admittedly, it seems extremely unlikely that ice cream ever was part of classic Caribbean pirates’ dietary habits. But Rhum surely was! So if ice cream making had been an actual possibility in those days, I  feel pretty confident that this frozen combination of […]

Carrot Cake ice cream

19/11/2012 at 09:58

Or should we perhaps say “Carrot ice cream”? You see, no actual “cake” is required for making this rather original ice cream – only some fresh carrots and the right spices! The final, inviting ice cream flavour is, however, unmistakably carrot cake! And if you like carrot cake, did you know that you are part of a tradition that actually goes back at least to Medieval times? […]
