Kenwood ice-cream maker
Okay, this isn't so much a recipe as a tip. Shop-bought ice-cream is becoming a bit of a pain of late. It's not so much the diabetes restrictions (after all, it's not that bad for carbs) but the lurking presence of wheat-stuff in popular ice-creams. So, we bought a Kenwood model on Amazon. It's a simple model where you keep the metal bowl in the freezer and when you want some ice-cream, attach the motor and paddle to the top and hey presto, 20 minutes later you've got ice-cream.
The recipes are flexible in that all you need is cream, sugar (and you can adjust this), and whatever fruit you have lying around.
We've tried banana, mango, strawberry, raspberry, and chocolate (with and without mint). They've all be brilliant but it's hard to beat the mango and the raspberry (unless you're a chocoholic). Don't forget a splash of lemon or lime juice.
Best bit is the kids can really get involved (nothing sharp to harm). We get gluten-free cones from to make a real treat of it. You can freeze your work if you can't down it all in one sitting - this hasn't been necessary often!
Cleaning is easy (not dishwasher proof) and you put the bowl back in the freezer for the next time.
