Where can you get handmade ice cream, made with real fruit that contains no added preservatives or colouring? The answer is Simply Ice Cream.
Made by hand in Kent, Simply Ice Cream is as good for you as real ice cream gets. Don't get me wrong - it still contains plenty of cream and sugar - but if you're looking for the real deal, without any of the nasties, then this is for you.
We were sent four ice creams (coconut; strawberry; raspberry; and mango, passionfruit and lime) to try and two sorbets (lemon and raspberry) to try.
In my opinion, the mango, passionfruit and lime was the best - I absolutely love those flavours and it was sweet, creamy and packed full of tropical flavours. Miss R, 4, loved the raspberry and strawberry but for R, 6, who prefers an ice lolly to an ice cream, it was all about the sorbet. Apparently the lemon sorbet tastes "just like that lime Calippo I had in Spain". The kids are still dreaming about the week this summer when they were allowed an ice lolly with Daddy every day after dinner while I put Baby S to bed.
As well as the fruity ones, the company make a range of nut ice creams and some seasonal flavours such as Christmas pud. Their honeycomb ice cream has won several awards and is next on my list to try!
Simply Ice Cream products are available to buy in a range of shops and pubs and cafes in London and the south east. You can also get them in selected John Lewis and Waitrose stores. See the full list of stockists.
