I think it is best to bring something cold and refreshing (and super simple!) for today’s Fiesta Friday 21, seeing as the heat is back and the fruit season is here. I enjoy bringing a new recipe every week to Angie’s party. Today another team of wonderful co-host ladies, Elaine from Foodbod and Julianna from Foodie On Board  🙂

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 400g of frozen raspberry
  • 200ml of light cream (15% M.F)
  • 90g of sweetened condensed milk
  • Fresh mint leaves

Procedure:

  1. In a blender add the frozen raspberry and mix.
  2. Pour the light cream and the sweetened condensed milk and mix again.
  3. When all the ingredients are mixed.
  4. Serve immediately in small individual glasses and decorate with fresh mint leaves.

This recipe is easy, and no need for an ice cream maker!

Yesterday I did a mango flavored and today I opted for raspberry. It’s fresh, creamy and perfect for a hot summer.

P.S: If you like sweet ice cream, add more condensed milk or sugar (taste with a teaspoon the mixture before serving if you want more or less sweet). Raspberry is a sour fruit, I prefer when it’s sour 🙂

Bon Appetit.

  1. This is indeed very easy to do, Linda!! Thank you for bringing this – the heat is driving me nuts… this could help bring back my sanity. 😉 Happy FF to you!

  2. C’est un super moyen pour faire de la glace sans machine spéciale ! Et ça a l’air vraiment délicieux. J’adore la glace à la framboise ! Et quelle couleur magnifique. Ca fait envie !

    • Merci, Darya. C’est vraiment rapide a faire et a servir aussi. Les framboises sont un peu acides, moi personnelement j’aime beaucoup mais si tu preferes la version un peu plus sucree rajoute plus de lait sucre condense. En general, j’evite toujours de rajouter trop de sucre et c’est drolement bon. Bon weekend avec ton Grand 🙂

  4. Your photos are amazing Linda – and what a stunner of a recipe – so simple and so quick. Congratulations on your feature last week too, by the way! Happy Fiesta Friday!

    • Thank you so much, Selma 🙂 We really need something fresh, fast and cold here in Dubai. Simple fruits not too much sweet with a little sour taste. Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Fiesta Friday!

  5. Linda! Your pictures are amazing and so is this delightful treat! Wow…your ice cream came out so wonderfully, and raspberry? Yum!!

    • Thank you very much my Dear Lori 🙂 We really love this kind of desserts at home, something fast to do and cold. I know you like honey maybe you should add honey instead of condensed milk! Have a nice weekend 😉

  6. This looks and sounds sooooo goooood….. I love that you don’t need an ice cream maker, and you don’t have to put it back in the freezer and wait …. I tried making homemade mint chocolate chip ice cream this year (without an ice cream maker) and it was a huge flop- but it sounds like you can’t go wrong with this!! Great pics too, thanks for sharing!!

  7. Oh my Linda, this is something I can do! I don’t own an ice cream maker and keep frozen berries (and fruit) on hand for smoothies. Never occurred to me to use condensed milk and cream with the fruit to blend up a nice frozen treat. I love your photographs!

    • Thank you very much, Seana 🙂 This ice cream is fresh, a little sour with the addition of raspberry fruit and if you want more sweet add more condensed milk or sugar. Mix and eat immediately 😀 Have a wonderful weekend!

  8. Looks lovely, Linda. Is the texture more like sorbet or ice cream? I am guessing sorbet because of the pictures (which are so pretty!). I always wonder if it’s truly that easy to make ice cream, and you’ve proven it is!

    • Thank you very much for your nice comment, Ngan 🙂 I cannot say it’s like a sorbet (sorbet contain sugar and water), it’s more like gelato, soft after mixing. Sometimes my translation drives me crazy 😀 It’s very good, fresh and a little sour but you can add more sugar if you want.Very often, I mix fresh mint with all the ingredients. Have a wonderful weekend xx

  9. Wow, wow, wow, Linda! The biggest gift you have brought to us tonight is a recipe for ice-cream that is so easy!! I for one don’t make ice-cream because it involves so much stirring, or a machine! You have changed my world! (Well, my ice-cream world) And will you look at how fast it is disappearing? Gorgeous photographs too! 🙂

    • Thank you, Julianna 😀 You know me, I’m a lazy mama with fast and simple recipe. Do let me know how it turns out. It’s nice to see you co-hosting with Elaine. Have a happy supper Fiesta Friday!

  10. Lovely pictures Linda and I didn’t know it was so easy make ice cream. I will have to give it a try for sure 🙂 I was wondering if it would be fine to add some porto or another kind of liquor- what do you think?

    • Thank you Platedujour:) It’s simple, raspberry brings a sour taste. I don’t drink alcohol 😀 but it’s certainly a good idea to add any liquor for more flavor. Enjoy your weekend in France!

  11. Linda…this is so beautiful! I just made a raspberry sorbet last week for a guest post coming up…and the color was exactly this… so pretty!! I’m loving the fact that there is no ice cream maker necessary… nor is there any freezing required (except for using frozen raspberries!) That’s just crazy wonderful!! Instant gratification!! I need to try this! Your photos are absolutely gorgeous…and I can just taste the creaminess combined with the raspberries… delicious. Wonderful post! ❤

    • Thank you so much for your kind comment, Prudy 🙂 It is easy to prepare: frozen fruits, you can add heavy cream instead of light cream and more sweet if you want. I’m waiting for your guest post, certainly beautiful and tasty…Have a nice week ❤

    • Thank you, Justine 🙂 Crossing my fingers it turns out great if you try it (and not another flop), also it is quite sour tasting, so if you like a sweeter taste, you should definitely add some sugar! xo

      • oh glad you told me lol, it wasn’t a flop last time, honesty its just our taste buds, for others it would be fab and as i say i need to actually get used to less sugar :0

  12. Linda, one more beauty from your kitchen. Fresh, healthy, simple and cool. Just what we need this summer. Best part is no anxious waiting for the freezer time 🍦🍒

    • Thank you Sally 🙂 Yes, so simple (and very quick), perfect for those moment of absolute heat during the summer! I’ve heard about Vitamix, I have considered buying it, would you recommend it (as I have never tried it)? Also, the teens may want a bit of sugar in the ice cream (as it is currently sugar-less and quite sour from the berries!). x

  13. Linda, I’m reading this from Malaysia, and the weather is so hot and humid I would love some of this! I like raspberry and lemon things slightly sour, so the recipe sounds perfect!

    • Thank you Saucy 🙂 The ice cream/gelato sounds perfect for hot and humid weather. We are in the same boat (it is hot in Dubai too). Enjoy your trip in Malaysia, beautiful scenery and excellent food, lucky you are 😀
