Carrot Kesar Ice Cream

carrot-kesar-icecream

Summer has arrived and in full swing, here is a recipe to cool the heat. Carrot kesar ice cream is one such delicious summer treat. Making homemade ice creams is easier and tastier than store brought. Last summer, I had prepared carrot gelato, with gelato recipe from my friend Shrikripa. This year a different version with carrot and kesar or saffron flavors. This requires no ice cream maker, no churn and the flavor of kesar adds the richness to otherwise silky, luscious classic carrot ice cream. It’s a pretty simple recipe whip the cream, mix the carrot kesar milk mixture and freeze it. Done and incredibly smooth and creamy ice cream is ready, you would never say no to it. My family and kids loved it. AND my better half says you make better than store brought ones!!!!! Happy me.

Lets see the recipe now

My Notes:

The quantity of kesar or saffron can be increased depending on individual taste.

The quantity of condensed milk can be increased depending on individual taste. We like mild sweet as the carrot also imparts some amount of sweetness.

Use a chilled bowl, whipping rods, ice cubes during whipping of cream.

Use a close tight lid to prevent ice crystal formation during freezing.
