Flavoured with vanilla custard powder rather than vanilla essence, this ice-cream has a richer flavour and a smoother mouth-feel as well, thanks to the extra thickening provided by custard powder.
As always, proper proportions of milk and cream work their magic is providing this ice-cream an irresistible creaminess. An abundance of deseeded apricots impart nice tangy breaks in every mouthful of this delicious Apricot and Custard Ice-Cream.
