Yesterday was so hot that when we tried to make ice cream, we couldn't. The gel filled container was defrosting faster than the ice cream mixture was freezing. This left me with the unfrozen ice cream mixture and four sweaty kids who had been counting on ice cream. I put a tray of ice in my blender, poured the ice cream mixture over it and gave it a whirl. The result was essentially a thick shake and it was delicious.
We skipped the chocolate chips added a few other things to the recipe this time just for the sake of variety. I tossed in 1/4 cup carob powder, a handful of chopped walnuts and a few sprigs of mint. The mint really gave it a refreshing taste.
