Glace selber machen: 3 einfache Glace Rezepte Glace selber machen: 3 einfache Glace Rezepte

Summer has arrived and the temperature is rising, making us long for refreshing ice cream. Have you ever tried making your own ice cream creations?

Making ice cream at home not only lets you leave out the granulated sugar, but also gives your creativity free rein. And it doesn't take much. Our recipes don’t need an ice cream maker. Apart from a good (hand) blender, all you need are a few ice cream moulds and wooden sticks and you're ready to go.

What about starting with watermelon ice cream?

Easy, tasty & quick to make. You need: watermelon. That’s it! Blend the fresh watermelon, fill the mixture into ice cream moulds, freeze and enjoy. You can do this with all your favourite fruits.

Special touch & toppings

FFresh herbs such as mint, rosemary, lemon balm, etc. go well with many fruits, while spices such as cinnamon or vanilla add a special touch. And don't forget the toppings - whether crunchy with toasted, chopped nuts or bitter-sweet with dark chocolate. It’s up to you.

Is home-made also better?

The greatest advantage: you know exactly what’s in it and can determine the sugar and fat content yourself. This means fruit instead of sugar and yoghurt instead of cream. Home-made ice cream is even more attractive as it doesn't contain any preservatives and colourants and also has much fewer calories.
