Eggless No Cook No Churn Tutti Frutti Ice Cream

Hey all….yes..I have been a bit out of it lately…blame the summers..! Yes, please do blame the summers…so that you have an excellent excuse to make yourself some creamy….dreamy ice cream 😍

My No Churn, No Cook and egg free Tutti Frutti Ice Cream 🤗🤗 should cool you down I guess….it certainly did cool us down…scoop after scoop were polished off this last weekend and I have been ordered by my man to make some more ice cream ASAP! I will indulge him😘 I always do…..

Tutti Frutti ice cream recipe Eggless no cook no Churn Tutti Frutti ice cream Polkapuffs Shreya tiwari photography

I prefer ice creams rarely…more of a Popsicle girl..(see my Fruity Volcano Popsicle here …you’ll love it!). But when I do make an ice cream…I make a mean one! It’s always on point! 👌🏼😉 I love ice creams that need no churning machines and fancy equipment….and definitely no fancy ingredients! They need to be simple, easy to put together and they must taste better than the ones at your favourite ice cream place..!

This Tutti Frutti ice cream checks all the right boxes and is big on flavour!! 💃🏻It’s slightly citrusy…..that’s my version. You can go with the classic vanilla flavour or even almond extract would go beautifully. There are infinite options…if you like, add some cardamom flavour or even a bit of saffron (Kesar).

Coming to how to get that beautiful texture which is so creamy and yet has a firmness…. we come across many recipes which are no-cook, no-egg and no-churn but many of these recipes are complicated or call for some preservatives too. I won’t advocate such recipes…I like the idea of making ice cream only because it can be done without any CMC or GMS powders. These are obviously exceptional ingredients to ensure a good textured ice cream, but the challenge lies in making home made ice cream without any of these.

I have used very basic ingredients which are easily available and since it doesn’t need any machine to churn the mixture, a simple wired whisk or an electric whisk can do the magic!

Lets make some ice cream…

Place the the wired whisk or the whisk attachment of the electric whisk along with the stainless steel mixing bowl in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes an hour for them to chill.

In the chilled bowl, take the chilled whipping cream, whisk it for 4-5 minutes using the electric whisk until the cream has soft peaks. It will take about 10-12 minutes manually.

Next add the milk powder and whisk again until it is fully incorporated. Now, pour the condensed milk into the whipped cream and using a rubber spatula, gently fold the condensed milk into the whipped cream. Add the lemon zest next. If you are using the colour, add that colour and the tutti frutti bits. Mix everything gently so the the air incorporated into the cream doesn’t escape.

Pour the the mixture into the tin and cover the tin with some aluminium foil. Set it in the freezer for about 2 hours, it will be partially set by then. Remove from the freezer after 2 hours, remove the partially set ice cream in another chilled stainless steel bowl and whisk it again for 2-3 minutes. Pour the mixture back into the tin and cover it again with the foil. Freeze the mixture for 6-7 hours.

To serve, keep the ice cream in room temperature for 10 minutes before scooping it into bowls and devouring it😉

Tip: I have used the lemon zest to cut the sweetness, the ice cream does taste very mildly citrusy. You can omit the colour or choose any other colour.

Rose and Pineapple Cooler

I can live on cool drinks all year long…😉 Being a teetotaller couple, we are constantly looking forward to trying some new flavours of mocktails and coolers…and more often than not we come across great finds👌😚

Speaking of great finds, I also find it interesting to try and make a new flavour combination right in the comfort of my kitchen! Earlier, I have shared the recipe of tropical iced tea which was a total hit! I make it every summer and we can’t get enough of it😀 I keep myself and the hubby hydrated as we sip on some of the most delicious homemade coolers. I have been told by people who have tried my Fruity Green Tea cooler, that it was one of the best ways to enjoy their green tea!

Coming to this gorgeous beauty that has gotten you all parched is my take on two amazing flavours…tropical Pineapple and the very exotic Rose. Rose, on it’s own is very cooling. I have combined it’s flavours with the sweet and slightly tangy juices of local Pineapples and added my twist to it….😁 The resulting cooler/ mocktail is a bit spicy, has the freshness of summer mint and is loaded with ice! Just the thing you need in these sweltering afternoons.

Rose and Pineapple cooler Non alcoholic summer mocktail Pineapple cooler recipe Polkapuffs recipes Shreya tiwari photography Rose mocktail

Let’s get started….

Yield: serves 2

Equipment: mortar-pestle, measuring cups/ spoons, mixing spoons, 2 glass/ bottles of your choice to serve the drink.

Ingredients:

1+1/2 cup fresh or canned pineapple juice

4 tsp rose syrup

9-10 fresh mint leaves

1/2 tsp chaat masala (Indian spice mix easily available in Indian Grocery/ Food Stores. If you can’t find chaat Masala, replace this ingredient with some salt and pepper to taste)**

1/4 tsp ginger juice (grate some ginger and squeeze the juice to add to the mocktail)

ice cubes as needed

Method:

Muddle together mint leaves, chaat Masala** and ginger juice together in the mortar-pestle.

Add two tsp rose syrup in each of the 2 serving glasses/ bottles.

Top the rose syrup up with 1-2 tsp of the mint leaves, ginger juice and chaat Masala** mixture.

Add ice cubes. Lastly, pour the Pineapple juice. The flavours will combine on their own, however, you can give them a quick stir. Garnish the drink with a sprig of mint! Enjoy!

Kiwi Agua Fresca

I know that you aren’t exactly looking for a summer drink in a climate that calls for Pyaaz ki Kachori and a cup of hot, ginger tea!! But when it comes to Kiwi, I can only think of Popsicles or some healthy drink (not too cold as I am still recovering from a bout of viral 🙄 So my Kiwi Mojito Popsicles are out question) and a crisp, fruity Agua Fresca is just the answer for it! Delicious, healthy and pretty….all at the same time 😘

Also, because I am in no mood to go into making anything elaborate that’d keep in the kitchen for long..nope, not happening! Meaning, this one’s too easy 😂

Kiwi Aqua Fresca recipe How to make agua Fresca Summer drink PolkaPuffs recipe

So what’s an Agua Fresca you’ll ask me..well it’s Spanish for ‘fresh water’ and can be made with a variety of fruits for adding a lovely flavour to water. I have made some with watermelons last year..(never blogged that though). This time around, it’s with some juicy kiwis, mostly because I’ve about a dozen of them sitting in my refrigerator and the Mister ain’t a fan of the fruit by itself. So this drink is a good option taste wise and to bring in some colour to these drab, grey rainy days 🤗 And pairs well with some Corn & Paneer Toasties for a quick and filling snack 👌🏼

Let’s see how…

Yield: serves 2-3

Equipment: a blender, measuring cups/ spoons.

Ingredients:

2 nos. green kiwis peeled & sliced (do not de seed)

1 tbsp honey (optional)

3 cups water

Method:

Place all the above ingredients in the blender and give them a go until the fruit is blended completely. Taste for sweetness and adjust. You can add more water if you like a slightly thinner beverage.

Serve immediately and enjoy! This drink tastes best with the crunch of the seeds from the kiwi fruit so do not strain it. But that’s upto you!

Kiwi Aqua Fresca recipe How to make agua Fresca Summer drink PolkaPuffs recipe

You can also place a slice of kiwi and few sprigs of mint to make it all dainty…but then again that’s just me! You’d might as well have this out of the blender jar 😜..who’s to know!?

Mango & Tutti Frutti Ice Cream

My love for a Popsicle is eternal…but I do love a bowlful of creamy, delicious ice cream! Yes I have a rather good collection of ice creams on my blog here…all super tempting 😛

But how could I miss out on sharing a recipe for Mango Ice Cream…the King of fruits😍 this recipe is adapted from my No Churn Orange ice cream recipe with a bit of change… So basically it’s a no churn, no cook, eggless ice cream that requires just 3 key ingredients!

Mango & tutti Frutti ice cream How to make mango ice cream Eggless mango ice cream Polkapuffs recipes

I have added tutti frutti just because I felt like it…it’s completely optional or you can replace it with some chopped nuts or Choco chips…even butterscotch chips!😊 The choices are endless…and you always have the option of keeping it plain.

Since I like the fuss-free way of doing things…this ice cream had to be no-churn! Simply whisk everything well…and dump it in the freezer for 6-7 hours. The texture is beautiful and the flavour is absolutely spot on!

Mango & tutti Frutti ice cream How to make mango ice cream Eggless mango ice cream Polkapuffs recipes

Anyways…let’s get going with the recipe… It’s just a 15 min prep job…and the freezer takes care of the rest.

Yield: easily serves 4

Equipment: a electric whisk (manual whisk works too), a large stainless bowl, a rubber spatula, a Tupperware or an Aluminium container to set the ice cream.

Ingredients:

200 ml Amul whipping cream

1/2 cup icing sugar

pulp of 3 medium sized Alphonso mangoes

1/2 cup mixed tutti frutti (optional)

Method:

You will need to keep the stainless steel mixing bowl and the manual whisk or the electric whisk attachments in the refrigerator for about 30 mins to chill before you use them.

Then, add the cream to the chilled bowl and whisk it well until you achieve soft peaks. I have used an electric whisk so it took me about 4-5 mins to get the task done. If you’re using a manual whisk, you may need 10-12 mins for the cream to have soft peaks. But be careful to not over whisk the cream, because it may split.

Mango & tutti Frutti ice cream How to make mango ice cream Eggless mango ice cream Polkapuffs recipes

Next, add the mango pulp & icing sugar to the whipped cream and whisk these together for a minute or two or just until everything has combined well. Lastly, add the tutti frutti or anything you wish to add & fold it in using a rubber spatula or leave it as it is. Pour the mixture into an aluminium bowl or a Tupperware/ any freezer safe container and freeze it for 6-7 hours or overnight.

Before you serve the ice cream, let it thaw for about 5-7  mins at room temperature and then scoop out the ice cream!! That’s it😀

Mango & tutti Frutti ice cream How to make mango ice cream Eggless mango ice cream Polkapuffs recipes

Notes:

If you don’t have Amul whipping cream, you may use any other brand or even non-dairy whipping creams.

You can add more icing sugar as per taste. The reason we use icing sugar here instead of regular sugar is because it helps setting the ice cream with a perfect texture.

You can use canned mango pulp too if you don’t have fresh mangoes available.

Hope you try this soon 😋

Love,

Fruity Green Tea Cooler

Summers have arrived and how!? The heat kills me and all I want to do is sip on something chilled. But my hubby & I, we are both teetotallers, so I  try to make some healthy, non-alcoholic drinks when at home..😍 

Last summer too, I had shared some easy to do mocktail recipes over at Summer Siesta.  You may even find some of the most delicious ice creams there! 👌

Watermelon mocktail Green tea refresher Fruity Green Tea Cooler Polkapuffs recipes Summer drinks Kids recipes

As I have said above, that we are a teetotaller couple….well that’s not entirely true because…I don’t even drink tea or coffee!! Yes, that’s right, I DON’T! Never have needed the kick from caffeine to wake me up every morning or to get rid of a bad headache. When most people learn this fact about me, they are surprised and try to convince me otherwise and stuff…LOL!! Makes no difference to me 😝

But I always make a large mug of tea and that’s just for my hubby…who loves his ‘chai’, proper with ginger and lots of milk! To be honest, he’s the one who taught me how to make a ‘decent cup of tea’. I’d never be told to make any at Mom’s as I never drank any so nobody trusted me to make it well! Hahahah…and I never complained😹😹

So coming on to my Fruity Green Tea Cooler, it’s delicious with a hint of grassy flavour that it gets from the green tea…but it’s dominated by the fruitiness it gets from one of my favourite fruits! 😋 Besides, it’s too easy to make and will compliment everything summery…🍹🍹🍹

Let’s see how….

Serves: 2

Equipment: a blender, a saucepan, measuring cups/ spoons.

Ingredients:

2 cup chilled de seeded & chopped watermelon

1 nos. green tea bag (I used Lemon & Honey)

1 + 1/4 cup water

1/2 tsp lemon juice

honey to taste

ice cubes as needed to serve

Method:

Brew the green tea with warm water. Let cool down completely. Then chill this green tea for about 30 mins.

Once this is chilled, add the green to the blender along with lemon juice, chopped watermelon & honey. Blend all these for a minute until everything is blended well. That’s it, add ice cubes if you like & enjoy!

Now, doesn’t that look absolutely charming! I guess having something as healthy as this is much better than grabbing a can or two of cola!!

Fizzy Orange Popsicles

Yes! My love for Popsicles is very evident…I cannot resist Popsicles! 😛 And Orange Popsicles happen to be favorite ever since I was a kid. It’s so tangy, citrusy and yet deliciously sweet! Just what these relentless Summers need! 

Fizzy Orange Popsicles Homemade Popsicles Polkapuff Popsicles Easy summer Popsicles How to make Popsicles at home Summer desserts Frozen dessert recipe

Look at that colour….😻 So bright and inviting. Every kid’s favorite flavour…Orange!! But I do like other flavours like Rose, Mango or even Kiwi! So many flavours to choose from this Summer!

Fizzy Orange Popsicles Homemade Popsicles Polkapuff Popsicles Easy summer Popsicles How to make Popsicles at home Summer desserts Frozen dessert recipe

It’s very common to have Orange Squash/ Crush at home during summers…mix it with some chilled water and add a few cubes of ice. I do it too! So, the other day while sipping on some Orange Squash, I wished it was an Orange Soda instead of just plain squash…and that’s when I thought of freezing it for a few hours! That way I’d get to enjoy it as a Popsicle! 😬 One can easily incorporate other flavours of their choice. After all, it takes just 2 ingredients!! 

Yield: 3-4 Popsicles

Equipment: Popsicle moulds, a jug, spoon, ice-cream sticks.

Ingredients:

Club Soda …as needed per person 1/2 a glass approx

Orange Squash/ Crush…as needed per person 6 tbsp. approx. (you can adjust this)

Method:

In a jug, combine the squash along with soda very quickly so that the fizz from the soda remains fresh. Add a little extra squash as it gives a nice sweet flavour & a bright colour. Fill the popsicle moulds, cover with foil or Popsicle caps and freeze for 3 hours. Remove the moulds from the freezer, the Popsicles will be 50%- 60% frozen by now, place the ice- cream sticks in each Popsicle. Cover with foil or popsicle caps. Freeze for another 3-4 hours to freeze completely. Let these thaw for a few mins before you unmould and enjoy! 🤗

White Chocolate Treats

Ok…so this sounds mushy at the very best..but I did make some Chocolates for my hubby this Valentine’s 💓😍 lol! And he found them cute too 💃🏻

Well…to be honest…I wouldn’t really call it ‘making’ them…unless that’s what we are calling using ‘leftovers’ these days 😁😜

Homemade chocolate Polkapuffs

Why leftovers you may ask….well. I had some odd, broken pieces of Morde’s white Compound in my refrigerator post icing my Eggless Red Velvet Cupcakes. Also had some coloured sugar sprinkles lying around…so thought of using these along with my silicon chocolate moulds to make something quick! 😬😬…hence these Treats😊 Let’s get started….these take approx 30 mins to get ready …actually ready to eat!! Cool..ain’t it!?

A few pointers to keep in mind…

Do not try to melt the Compound Chocolate in the microwave…it could burn it as the chocolate is very delicate. Use a double boiler as far as possible.

Do not stir the the chunks of Compound Chocolate while it melts…that can make the melted chocolate very grainy.

Yield: 7-10 pieces

Equipment: a deep saucepan, a heat proof bowl (preferably borosil/ Pyrex), measuring cups/ spoons, silicon Chocolate moulds in any shape.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup chopped Morde White Compound

sugar sprinkles or sugar balls as needed

Method:

Heat water in the saucepan until it starts to boil, then place the heatproof bowl over the saucepan in such a way that the base of the bowl does not touch the boiling water below in the pan. Next, keep the chopped compound chocolate in the bowl and maintain the flame on it’s lowest possible level. Let the compound melt slowly and do not stir it.

Polkapuff homemade chocolate

While the compound melts, place the sugar balls/ sprinkles in the chocolate moulds, just a thin layer covering the base only.

Next, check the compound chocolate that is melting, it should be almost melted by now. Remove the bowl from the top of the saucepan. Stir the melted compound chocolate just once. It must be smooth and lump free.

Next, add 1-2 tsp of the melted compound chocolate over the sprinkles placed in the moulds. Fill the moulds to the top. Do the same for all the moulds and place them on a tray. Place this tray in refrigerator or the freezer for about 10-12 mins. They will be completely set and hard by then. When you break the chocolate in half, you should hear a ‘snap’! That’s the sound of a perfect homemade chocolate.🤓🤓😬

Follow the same recipe for Dark chocolate compound or Milk chocolate compound too. 😊

They keep well for 3-4 days under refrigeration.

Polkapuffs homemade chocolate

I made a small batch of 7-8 pieces! Do try these out…
