This chocolate biscuit ice cream could be the easiest quarantine recipe ever

Grind. Mix. Freeze. Making a sandwich has more steps than this

I believe it was in kindergarten when I first heard the phrase, "you scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream." Good times, those. I always used to think ice cream was made in God’s special factory and sent through a super-secret tunnel to every shop. Little did I know we could make it in our homes as well.

Milk seems to be the key to a lot of wonderful things. Things like paneer, cheese and butter can all be cooked up with the help of this single ingredient. Did you know that even ice cream is basically milk?

It's true. And after mixing milk and a couple of other things together, my mum created her first batch of home-made ice cream.

What flavour? Bourbon. Nope, not the whiskey, but the one found in Indian general stores: bourbon biscuit. A pair of chocolate biscuits with chocolate cream sandwiched inside, and a pinch of sugar sprinkled on top.

That was our primary flavour and good lord, did it taste delicious. It was like the perfect match of two things I loved – chocolate biscuit and ice-cream, all in a single bowl, mixed perfectly together, served as a feast for the tongue.

Chocolate biscuit ice cream

Easy. Simple. Heavenly.


  • 10 chocolate biscuits
  • Milk
  • Condensed milk


  1. Churn all the biscuits in a mixer grinder until they turn into powder.
  2. Add the milk and condensed milk.
  3. Churn again until the mixture forms a creamy liquid.
  4. Pour the contents into a container.
  5. Freeze for 3-4 hours.

  • The best ice cream is made by the Italian ice cafe in my town...they are open now. I missed them so much, like family. But thanks to your mom, I will try some ice cream on my own, thank you 😁

    • Haha, my mum's not very encouraging of alcohol. Although I believe she secretly likes it.

      Will make one with the real bourbon and ask her to try it

  • Might help the Aussie dairy industry.

    An ice-cream shop , that also sold, say apple and apricot pies, out the front of a small town dairy might attract a couple of tourists.
