In honor of summer (sort of) arriving in London this weekend, I decided it was the perfect time to start experimenting with ice cream. I had two requirements for my challenge 1) it had to be SCD legal, ie no cream, milk, yogurt or sugar and 2) it could be made without an ice cream maker because I didn’t have enough patience to wait 24 hours for the bowl to freeze.

I am so excited about this ice cream, it’s delicious, I mean seriously good. The consistency is exactly like normal store bought ice cream and the flavor is light and refreshing and perfect for a hot summers day. This ice cream is also incredibly easy to make, simply throw a few ingredients in a blender and let it whirl. The hardest part will be waiting for it to freeze, but be patient, it will all be worth it in the end.

Here are a few other ice cream recipes that you will enjoy…
