Low Fat Ice cream? Ice cream made without cream? Is that even possible?
When Sunita announced Cinnamon to be this month’s spice, I wanted to come up with something different. Most desserts have a fruit, especially apples, and cinnamon in some form or the other. In Indian cooking, cinnamon is used in north Indian cooking, but would not be a main ingredient, but used along with other spices as a part of garam masala or otherwise. Then the option was to bake something with cinnamon in it. So I spent most of December hoping a lightbulb would flash. It was only a couple of days back, while reading someone’s post about an entry sent in for the event, that I realized I didn’t have much time left.
So I came up with Cinnamon Almond Praline Ice cream! The credit for the basic recipe I am using goes to my friend Gauri who introduced me to this. Technically, this might not qualify for an ice cream as it has no cream!! It has no eggs either but as far as I am concerned it is made from milk and looks and tastes like ice cream. So this is how I made it.
