On and off summer really takes it toll on us. At times its really hot and gets hard even to go out in the afternoons so, something cold is the only option to keep us cool. Its rare that we buy ice creams from the store , actually i still love the ice creams we get back in India , the flavor is so different from here ; be it even a simple Vanilla Ice Cream.
This time when my parents planned on a visit here i asked them for a bottle of Butterscotch Essence back from India. So, i have been making this for so many times from then on. I tried omitting Butterscotch essence and adding in Vanilla Essence and a tiny pinch of orange colour and it almost tasted and looked the same too.
My mom being a great fan of Butter Scotch Ice cream , i'm happy to serve her the same flavor here too. Its great to cool off ourselves with this super easy Ice cream.
Im trying to keep my blog live with giving in sneak peeks in between ...hopefully !!!
Anyway enjoy your summer peeps !!
