Chocolate Hazelnut Ice Cream


This months Kavey Eats Ice Cream Challenge is CONDENSED MILK! Now that’s exciting and brings back some delicious pre-ice cream machine owning dessert memories.

Lime & Pomegranate Ice Cream

recipe(1)I’ve owned an ice cream machine for a while now but always forget he exists, the poor bugger!

But the ultimate level of yum was Lime & Pomegranate Ice Cream and that’s what I’ve decided to share, so here’s my recipe and plenty of pictures!
