    I made this in my new ice cream maker yesterday and it is lovely.

    Great for anyone who doesn't want the faff of warming milk, adding eggs etc.

    375ml milk (full fat best)
    300g tub of double cream
    125g granulated sugar
    50g chocolate dark or milk
    1½ tsp peppermint flavouring
    green food colouring

    Chop chocolate into very small pieces (place in a plastic bag and give a few good whacks with a rolling pin! - I tried putting it in a blender but it made the chocolate too small).

    Pour milk and sugar into a medium sized bowl and whisk until sugar dissolved.

    Stir in cream and add peppermint flavouring and green food colouring. Just add a tiny amount of colouring to start and increase gradually to the colour you like.

    Switch on ice cream maker and add mixture, leave for about 30 mins but add chocolate 5 mins before finishing time.

    I am currently 12,000 miles away from my ice cream recipe book called "Ices: the definitive guide" by Caroline Liddle and Robin Weir:

    It is fantastic. Not only does it include a huge number of recipes, but also a section at the back on the chemistry of ices and how to work out the correct balance of suger and fat for any flavour you want to make. Oh, and the recipes are to die for! No citric acid, no powder mixes, no bottled lemon juice, their recipes are the real deal.

    I'm looking for an ice-cream recipe that's REALLY quick to make.. I'm sure somewhere on here I read ions ago someone made some with sterilized cream but can't find it... from memory they just mixed the ingredients together and popped it into a container and froze it and ta-daa... ice-cream.... quite possible I was wishfully hallucinating on that though :rotfl::rotfl:

    Life....mmmm....still trying to figure that one out but what I do know is if I had all the answers it'd be a hell of a lot easier!!!!!!:p

    A big tin of condensed milk and a big tin of coconut milk. Mix them together in a flat dish and put this in the freezer. Then, every hour or so, move the frozen stuff around the edges into the middle, Eventually it will all be frozen.

    not quite ice cream, but tastes good. takes a bit of planning, and I haven't worked out how to do it with no food processor.

    roughly chop a pineapple and a mango. freeze on a flat tray overnight, sprinkling over a couple of table spoons caster sugar. once it's frozen, put into a blender / food processor with a large carton of natural yogurt and zap until smooth. freeze for an hour or so if it needs to firm up.
