Vanilla Icecream with Apricots and Spinning Citrus

Spinning Orange is my click for Jugalbandi's

"Citrus" Click event.

Now to today's recipe:

This is in connection to the
Bloggers Meet we have every month. I got "Dried Apricots" from Sowmya as my Secret Ingredient for the Kitchen Connect event. She gave me yummy Chocolate cookies too:)

To be frank, I dont like apricots because of its smell. So thought a lot, what to prepare for the event. Finally I had it with icecreams ..... I cannot say NO to it ;)

I followed
Srilekha's Vanilla Icecream recipe, with minor changes.

Given below my recipe:

Milk - 1 cup
Full cream milk - 1 cup
Cream - 1 cup
Sugar - 1-2 cups or as required
Vanilla Essence - 2 tsp

Boil milk and full cream milk with sugar and allow it cool completely.

Add cream, vanilla essence to it and blend them nicely.

Freeze them for 8 hours. Blend it in intervals of 1-2 hours.

For a smooth texture, you can add stabilizers available in the market. I didn't add any but blended it nicely so that it is foamy.

Cooking time - 8 hours
Serves 3-4 persons

Serve with processed apricots as below:

Dried Apricots - 8-10
Sugar - 3 tablespoons
Rose essence - 1 teaspoon

Microwave all contents with 1/2 cup of water for 10-15 minutes.

Allow them to cool and have it with icecreams.

Cooking time - 15 minutes
Serves 2-3 persons

I have been tagged by my friends and got some awards too. I would be adding them to my post next week.
