Hey there guyss!

Spent the first two weekends this month with a friend and we made ice cream together. It’s remarkably easy and if the temperatures where you live are anything like ours (in the Caribbean) right now, then you’ll be needing some ice cream this week. This is a safer (because you know all that’s in it), cheaper option. It’s also easy to make any flavor you want just by switching up the additions. Also there are different ways to make ┬áice cream and this is just one easy recipe. Enjoy!

  • 2 tins of evaporated milk
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1 cup of (brown) sugar (also half a mug/13 tablespoons)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence (optional)
  • 35/36% heavy whipping cream
  • chocolate biscuits

skip the crushed cookies if you want plain vanilla. photo credit:


  1. Separate egg whites from yolks (store egg whites in the fridge for use during the week)
  2. In a medium/large saucepan/pot, add egg yolks + 2 tins of milk + sugar and whisk until mixture combines.
  3. Place pan over medium heat cooker and heat for 10 mins. Stir throughout this time to prevent lumps from forming.
  4. When custard begins to froth lightly, turn off heat but continue stirring for a couple more minutes.
  5. Cool custard by placing pan in bowl of cold water.
  6. Whisk whipping cream in large bowl (preferably with electric hand mixer) until mixture thickens noticeably. Add vanilla essence here.
  7. When custard cools, combine with whipping cream and stir until completely mixed.
  8. Freeze for at least 24 hours. Add broken up cookie bits when ice cream is halfway frozen to prevent cookies sinking to the bottom.

Have you ever made ice cream? How do you make yours?

Have a lovely week!
