Food Crowd homemade ice cream


  • 4 eggs
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 150ml of whipped double cream
  • 150ml thick natural yogurt
  • 150ml of sieved summer berries


  1. Place the whipped cream in a large bowl and put to one side.
  2. Separate the eggs. Pour the yolks into a small bowl and the egg whites into a larger bowl.
  3. Beat the egg whites with an electric whisk until really stiff. Add the sugar, one teaspoon at a time, whisking for a few seconds after each addition.
  4. Beat the egg yolks for a few minutes until really thick and frothy. Using a large metal spoon, very gently fold the egg yolk mixture into the whipped cream and then add the sieved berries.
  5. Fold the egg white mixture into the cream mixture very gently — again using the metal spoon.
  6. Pour the mixture gently into a 2 liter plastic container and seal.
  7. Freeze overnight.
  8. Allow to thaw a little before serving. is for every body and mind in the UAE. This magazine is all about moderation, making small changes, little additions and the odd subtraction.
