Make 2 scoops of ice cream

  • 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp raisin
  • 1 tsp orange peel

 Hot Cross Icecream - Great Easter Treat

Directions

  1. Place the Spiced Chai in the boiling water to make the tea.  Let it infuse for at least 10 minutes so the brew is very strong.
  2. Drain the Spiced Chai infusion and pour it into a small pan.
  3. Add jam and stir to mix and let it boil for 10 minutes.
  4. Turn off heat.  Add orange juice.  Freeze this infusion.
  5. Meanwhile, add ice cream and the rest of the ingredients except the apricot into a mixing bowl, stir well.
  6. Freeze the ice cream mixture for at least overnight to let the flavours infuse.
  7. Take both the frozen infusion and frozen ice cream from the fridge.  Break the icy Spiced Chai infusion into large chunks and mix or fold gently into the ice cream (so there are strands of Spiced Chai visible in the ice cream).
  8. To serve, place a scoop of the ice cream in a small bowl and make a cross with two strips of apricot.

 

Spiced Chai is available in Teas.com.au.
