Rose Ice Cream

In the lead up to Father’s Day I decided to make something for my dad.  Initially I had no idea what to make but I wanted to make something specifically tailored around his taste.  In the past I have bought him rose syrup which can be found in most supermarkets and is great for mixing with still or sparkling water to make a fresh floral drink.  With this in mind I decided to try making a rose ice cream having had it myself for the first time on a visit to Nissi Restaurant.

I had heard of ice creams being made with evaporated milk so I decided to give my own version a go and hope for the best.  Luckily the result was amazing so I decided to share with you my fabulous recipe.  This is a simple cheats version and the results as I said were spot on.  Although you are not constantly whisking you need not fear a mouthful of ice crystals, be comforted in the knowledge that this will result in a gorgeous creamy ice cream no matter how bad a chef you feel your are.


2 x 410g tins evaporated milk

200g caster sugar

5tbs rose syrup

3tbs rose water


Pour the evaporated milk into a metal bowl or freezer safe glass bowl and freeze for 2.5 hours.

Whisk well for 5-6 minutes with an electric hand whisk.

Throw in the rest of the ingredients and whisk for a further 5-6minutes.  By this stage the mixture should have doubled at least in size from the original height.

Place in a plastic container, cover with the lid and freeze overnight.

This ice cream will be smooth, creamy and have a gorgeous rose flavour.

You can adapt the recipe to make various flavours, I hope to be making a few more flavours soon!!!
