We are well and truly into summer now and many of us will have been enjoying our favourite summer treat - ice cream! Why not have a go at making your own? It's actually really easy to make. You don't need fancy gadgets or special equipment and you can experiment with new yummy flavours. Get the kids involved too! Helping to make ice cream is a great way to get the kids out of the hot sun and into the kitchen to cool down. What child wouldn't want to make their own ice cream?

This recipe from Canned Food UK is really easy to make and you will probably have most of the ingredients in your kitchen cupboards.

3 heaped teaspoons ground cinnamon
400g can dairy custard
283g can cream
2-3 tablespoons maple syrup (or to taste)
zest of 2 oranges


- In a small frying pan, gently toast the cinnamon for 30 seconds, to enrich the flavour of the spice. Remove from the heat and transfer to a large bowl
- Add the custard, cream, maple syrup and orange zest to the cinnamon and mix well
- Transfer the ice cream to a freezer proof container to freeze for approximately 3 hours until solid, but soft enough to give way slightly if pressed with your finger
- Remove the ice cream from the freezer and transfer to a food processor. Blend the ice cream briefly until just smooth and return to the freezer for 3 hours or until frozen
