I like cooking in phases as on most days it is a necessity to be got through. I finish my cooking by 9 in the morning, leaving the day free to paint. But wanting my family to have nutritious, balanced, and healthy meals I do most of my own cooking. This enables me to be sure that the right quantities of oil are in the food. This fetish has also enabled me to cook in quantities and freeze it. The argument is that I lose some nutrients and frozen food is not healthy. My choice is between clean, homemade food versus commercial, packaged, and preserved food. The recent controversy with Maggie led a friend to send me a list of banned chemicals in various food products. One of them was emulsifiers in ice creams which can lead to cancer. I remembered that I  used to make ice cream without emulsifiers or chemicals for my own children when they were growing up. So here goes – this is and was a favorite with my children.


1 liter full cream milk
2 large mangoes pulp
3 cups sugar
1 lemon – Juice
2 cardamom powdered – optional
1/2 liter Cream

Boil 1 Litre full cream milk and keep aside to cool

Pulp of 2 big mangoes

Churn mango, milk, and sugar in the jar to a smoothie. This is very thick. If you like more sugar you can add it.

Add the juice of one lemon. You can also add fresh cardamom powder.

Pour into containers to put into the freezer. The containers should have covers. I have used bread boxes.

Put all of it into your chopper jar and blend. You have to be quick as you don’t want your mixture to melt. It must remain thick and creamy. You don’t want any lumps.

Take your Cream and put i into a metal dish. Place the dish in a larger dish with ice cubes to keep the cream cold.

Pour back into the ice cream tins and freeze. Once set your ice cream is very soft and ready to eat.

This makes approximately 2 kg of ice cream.
