There is nothing nicer than a cool,
refreshing ice-cream or sorbet for dessert and these recipes are simply
delicious. If you don't have an ice-cream machine you can still make
them easily. Turn your freezer compartment to maximum. Place prepared
mixture into a freezer-proof container. Cover with foil and place in the
freezer and allow to partially freeze. Remove and transfer to a mixing
bowl and beat with an electric mixer to break up ice crystals. Replace
into freezer container, place back into the freezer and allow to
semi-freeze again. Repeat beating process, then freeze until solid.
Place into refrigerator 20 minutes before serving to allow to soften.
Ice creams and frozen desserts will keep
perfectly in the freezer for weeks, if not months - simple ice creams
flavored with mango, toasted breadcrumbs or flakes of chocolate will
delight your family, while Strawberry Mousse Cake and Iced Chocolate and
Nut Gateau are perfect desserts to have on hand for unexpected guests.
