Ovaltine Ice Cream
Here comes the rain..
But that's only to be expected here in Vancouver. As soon as September hits, it's all doom and gloom rain. Or it's rain in the morning and a beautiful sunny day in the evening. It's funny because you can tell at what time any given person has left their house just by what they're wearing.
Since I lose on average one umbrella per week, I needed to go umbrella shopping today.
Umbrella shopping is always the most depressing kind of shopping. It just reminds you that summer is nearing it's end..or just that we're in one of the 10 months where it rains constantly. But in this case, it's the first one, and frankly, I'm not ready to say goodbye to summer just yet.
And so, this recipe was born.
I would have never heard about Ovaltine had it not been from my mom. She is not one to enjoy sweet things, so she doesn't usually try any of my baking, but she really likes Ovaltine. I remember a while back, I made Eggless Ovaltine Cake, and my mom actually liked it. So again, in an attempt to make her taste something I make and actually like it, I made this ice cream.
And it worked! She tried this ice cream, and ate the whole cup I gave her. Success! I'm so excited because this is rare. On the occasion that she does try my desserts, she usually passes it back to me telling me she doesn't really like sweet things. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that this ice cream is bitter. It just has the perfect sweetness balance.
So to celebrate the end of summer and picky eaters everywhere, I present to you this Ovaltine ice cream recipe.
What you'll need:
-1 cup whipping cream
-1 cup milk
-1 cup half and half
-10 tablespoons sugar
-1 cup ovaltine
1. In a medium saucepan, combine all the ingredients together on medium heat. Stir constantly until sugar is melted and ovaltine is fully mixed in.
2. Let cool and place in the refrigerator for a few hours, preferably overnight.
3. Pour mixture into your ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.
4. Place the ice cream in an airtight container and freeze until ready to serve.
