If the answer’s ‘yes, yes, yes’ then grab a copy of Jude’s Ice Cream & Desserts. From simple, refreshing treats (orange lollies) and sorbets like mango and passion fruit or summer peach, to fluffy buttermilk pancakes with roasted apple, toasted oats and ice cream, there’s temptation on every page – dig in and enjoy! The many ice cream variations (Earl Grey; beetroot and ginger – yes, really!) include several for vegans, but it’s the desserts we fancy most. How about cinnamon pavlova with winter fruit; Julia’s double chocolate brownies or, by far our fave … collapsed espresso chocolate cake, served with ice cream. Yes, yes, yes! From shakes and smoothies to sauces and DIY cones, when deliciousness calls, this is the book you need. Kyle Books, R378.
Orange lollies recipe
(Makes 4 x 85ml ice lollies)
Juice of 5 – 6 large oranges (roughly 500ml); a squeeze of fresh lime juice
(Note: You will need 4 x 85ml ice lolly moulds and flat lolly sticks)
Mix the fresh orange juice with the squeeze of fresh lime juice, tasting and adjusting to your liking. Pour into lolly moulds until each one is 3/4 full. Place moulds upright in the freezer for about an hour before pushing sticks into each mould. Freeze for a further 3 hours or preferably overnight. Remove moulds from freezer and briefly dip them into hot water, then gently pull lollies out of the moulds and serve immediately.
