How I make my ice creams with only 3 ingredients and no machine

Matcha and Passion Fruit Ice Creams

I love matcha ice cream, so does my daughter. My husband loves passion fruit ice cream and so does my son. Fortunately I worked out this recipe which allows me to split the two main ingredients and make both at the same time. These ice creams are so delicious, easy to make, requires only 3 ingredients and most of all, no ice cream machine needed!

Matcha and Passion Fruit Ice Creams

By splitting up two ingredients, I am able to make both at the same time.

Ingredients

Matcha ice cream

  • 2 tbsp matcha
  • 4 tbsp hot water

Passion fruit ice cream

  • 12 pieces passion fruit

For both ice creams

  1. Mix half a can of the condensed milk with the matcha and mix well using a spatula.

  2. Mix the other half of the condensed milk with the passion fruit juice and mix well using a spatula.

  3. Whip up the whole cream at high speed (I use #5 on my Kenwood) for 10 minutes or until peaks are formed.

  4. Fold half of the whipped cream in the matcha mixture and the other half into the passion fruit mixture.  Mix well.

  5. Pour each mixture in separate containers and freeze at least 4 hours or overnight.

How to make almond spread at home

It’s been a while since I’ve last made Amandalice…that’s what my dear ones call my homemade almond spread (almond in french is amande + Alice = Amandalice). My daughter came in the door after school today and ran into the kitchen all excited, yelling “I smell Amandalice!!!!” and started digging into the jar.

Amandalice is a delicious homemade spread suitable for breakfast or snacks. I love to spread it on toasted french baguettes but it’s basically good with any kind of bread or crackers.

Amandalice (homemade almond spread)

Course Breakfast
Cuisine American, Chinese, French
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 2 jars

Ingredients

  • 600 g almonds
  • 2 tbsp blond sugar
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 25 g honey
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Grill the almonds in the oven at 180°C (350°F) for 15 minutes. 

  2. Leave almonds to cool down a bit.

  3. Put almonds in a food processor and mix until it reaches a purée texture.  This procedure takes time and patience.  Stop once in a while to scrape down the almonds with a spatule as they tend to pile up on the side of the bowl.  You might need to do this up to 7 times, depending on each food processor.  

  4. DO NOT ADD ANY OTHER INGREDIENTS UNTIL YOU’VE REACHED THE PURÉE TEXTURE !

  5. Add both sugars, honey, salt, and vanilla extract and mix again.

  6. Put the spread into a covered jar and can be kept for at least a month in the refrigerator, but at my home, it never lasts that long.

Salad inspiration

My favorite ingredient in this salad is the lentil sprouts. As usual, I bought them at my favorite local organic store called Naturenville in Levallois Perret. This is the only place so far where I can find all different kinds of sprouts. I simply love the texture they add to my salads, a bit of crunchiness and chewiness.
