31 Days of MOO No. 20 - You Scream, I Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream

My mother used to joke that my father would eat ice cream for breakfast, lunch and tea, and ice cream and topping for morning and afternoon tea and supper if he was allowed. He loved ice cream.

And that's a love he passed on to me. I adore ice cream. So does Wayne. Strangely enough the kids can take it or leave it. But we like it. I don't buy ice cream, mainly because really good ice cream is expensive, and of course we simply don't need the calories, fat, sugar or other things in commercial ice cream.

Occasionally though I indulge our sweet tooth and make a bowl (or two) of lip smackingly creamy, delicious and decadent ice cream.

Decadent Vanilla Ice Cream

600ml cream (thickened will do, but pure if you can get it and afford it)
300ml condensed milk (MOO works a treat in this recipe)
1 vanilla bean, split and scraped

Beat the cream until very stiff. Stir the vanilla seeds into the condensed milk. Very gently fold the condensed milk into the whipped cream.  Spoon into a freezer safe bowl and freeze until set - at least two hours.

You can add berries or choc bits or honeycomb or nuts, whatever you like really, with the condensed milk to make your MOO Decadent Vanilla Ice Cream even more decadent.
