Jelly and Ice Cream
This was always a staple and a crowd favourite growing up.
Jelly and Ice Cream would be served at every birthday party, without fail.
Jelly can be found at the M&S food stores or online.
Pick your favourite flavour and prepare according to the packet.
Typically, you just heat up the jelly in water over the stove, put it in a bowl and leave it in the fridge to set overnight. So it is super easy to make, why not try a fun shaped mould!
Can’t find any Jelly in the shops?
Make your own like the team over at One Lovely Life!
2 cups of juice. You can use any 100% fruit or fruit/veg blend.
1 tablespoon of unflavored gelatin. (If you are using the sheets this recipe calls for 4 sheets. Scroll down and watch the video below that explains how to make jelly using gelatin sheets)
1 tablespoon of honey or agave syrup
Mix half a cup of juice with the gelatin.
Whisk together and allow the mixture to sit for 3-5 minutes to “bloom.” The granules will plump and the mixture will look like very thick applesauce or take on a lumpy appearance. It might also smell bad..don’t worry this is normal!
Pour the remaining juice into a medium saucepan. Heat over medium heat until almost boiling.
Remove from heat and stir in your honey or syrup and the bloomed juice/gelatin mixture.
Give it a goold old stir until it is dissolved and there are no lumps.
Pour the mixture into your moulds and set overnight.
Ice cream recipe
This is a 3 ingredient, no churn recipe from Foodie Crush. It makes about 10 servings.
It’s the perfect base for you to add whatever other ingredients tickly your fancy!
Peanut butter and banana
Mint leaves, green food colouring and chocolate chips
2 cups of heavy whipping cream
415ml of sweetened, condensed milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
In a large bowl, use a hand mixer to whip the cream until you get stiff peaks. You will know it is ready when you pull out the whisk and the cream doesn’t lose it’s shape. Be careful not to over whip!
In a separate bowl, whisk the vanilla and the condensed milk together. Gently fold in the whipped cream with a spatula. You want to do it slowly and gently so the mixture stays light and aerated.
Add in your tasty extras (if using).
Transfer the mixture to an airtight container and freeze for 4-6 hours.
Serve a scoop of ice cream alongside your jelly and you will have a little taste of nostalgia!
