Apricot ice cream is a delicious ice cream and tastes tangy with a sweet touch. It has a sweet and sour flavor and a smooth texture. It is easy to make and has simple ingredients.
I remember eating apricot ice cream as a kid. That nostalgia led me to make this ice cream as an adult. Let me tell you, and I was not disappointed. It took me a few hit and try recipes to get the one I used to eat as a kid. But I finally did figure it out and that is the recipe I’ll be sharing.
To make apricot ice cream, make a fruit mixture by heating apricots, lemon zest, cinnamon and sugar in a pan. Then, blend it. Chill for some time and then, add whipped cream, whole milk and vanilla extract. Blend it again and leave it to chill. Take it out and serve.
