Raspberry and rosewater kulfi with toasted almond sprinkles

Kulfi is an Indian ice cream made by evaporating whole milk until it’s really rich and almost caramelised. The beauty of enriching the milk like this is that you don’t need an ice cream maker to churn and break up ice crystals, so it’s an easy pudding to make. We have more individually portioned dessert ideas here.

Chocolate and black pepper gelato

Try our recipe for indulgent and creamy homemade chocolate gelato spiced up with black pepper. Gelato differs from ice cream in the fat content – ice cream is usually made with cream, while gelato is milk-based. The trick to this silky smooth gelato is to add some liquid glucose – this lowers the freezing point so it doesn’t freeze rock solid.
