Andrew’s Easy Ice Cream

For 6 small servings you need:

1 (300ml) bottle of cream

1/4 can sweetened condensed milk

1/4 cup icing sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Andrew’s ice cream is very rich and sweet, with a lovely flavour.It is easy and simple to make and you don’t need to beat it a second time, or do anything complicated to it at all.

The recipe makes around two-thirds of a litre – you would need to make three times this recipe to make about two litres. See if you can compare with the cost of bought icecream.

Beat the cream until it is floppy thick – not too thick. Add the condensed milk, icing sugar and vanilla. Beat until well mixed, and a little thicker, then pour into a container with a lid and freeze it.

You don’t need to eat big servings of this special ice cream.

Rachel’s Pineapple Rice Cream

For 4 to 6 people you need:

1/2 cup short grain rice

3 cups of milk

1/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 (450g) can crushed pineapple

1 cup of cream, whipped

This is a rice pudding with a difference! You are sure to like it – try it when you want a really delicious rice pudding!

Bring rice and milk to the boil in a saucepan. Turn the heat down very low, cover and cook for about 45 minutes, until the milk is absorbed.

Remove from the heat and add sugar and vanilla. Leave to cool. When cold, fold in the drained crushed pineapple and the whipped cream.

You can eat it straight away, or you can cover it and keep it in the refrigerator for several days. Eat it for breakfast!
