It is SO hot in Delhi and I hate it. The only thing that helps me survive this heat is ice-cream. And as I always say, the ice-creams made at home are the best! Have you tried making it as home yet? It is much easier than you think it is. I make this ice-cream using the Kitchen Aid ice-cream maker attachment but I have no-churn ice-cream recipes as well. Oh and some sorbets and coolers to make you feel better this summer. You can take a look at them here-

Coming back to this ice-cream, it is one of my favourites. Perfect for time when I want both cheesecake and ice-cream!


  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 cups double cream
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • beans from one vanilla pod
  • 1/4th cup fresh strawberries, finely chopped
  • 1/4th cup crushed digestive biscuits



  • Chill the Kitchen Aid Ice Cream Maker attachment in the freezer overnight.
  • In a saucepan, whisk together milk and granulated sugar until the sugar melts.
  • Add cream and mix well. Add vanilla beans. 
  • Pour the mixture into a container, cover and freeze for 2 hours.
  • Pour the mixture into the ice-cream maker and churn at low speed for  15 minutes.
  • Carefully fold in the strawberry pieces and crushed biscuits.
  • Transfer the mixture into a freeze safe container and freeze until firm.
