ice cream makerMake gelato at home with an electric ice cream maker.

ice creamIce cream is a passion! Here is my very own mint choc chip ice cream sundae in a waffle basket with fresh fruit.

You can see how to make banana ice cream on video here. Filmed in my kitchen at home, it doesn't get more 'homemade' than that!

Homemade Banana Gelato

½ pint (250ml) whole milk
(soya milk can work just as well if you are catering for anyone lactose intolerant)
½ pint (250ml) water
4 oz (100g) caster sugar
3 ripe bananas
Juice of 1 fresh lemon

Method: Place the sugar and water into a saucepan and stir whilst heating the pan slowly. Bring up to boiling point and ensure the sugar has dissolved. Remove the pan from the heat and leave to cool.

In a separate bowl, mash the bananas and stir in the juice from the lemon. Stir in the milk and the cooled sugar/water syrup made a little earlier.

Transfer into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions. Serves 6-8
