There is only one thing other than jumping into the pool, river or ocean that can cool you down during a South African summer; it’s ice cream. There are so many great flavours you can add to your homemade ice cream but we went fully South African with it. Our one big export is rooibos tea, which is proudly only grown in our Rainbow Nation. Our No-churn Rooibos Ice Cream is the summery treat you are looking for and you can easily make it at home. You don’t even need an ice cream maker and you probably already have the ingredients and tools at home.

Rooibos (red bush) tea has a very distinct flavour and is widely used in South Africa in all kinds of food and drinks. Its refreshing taste adds to the refreshingly cold ice cream which is made with cream, sugar, water and of course, brewed rooibos tea. The No-churn Rooibos Ice Cream takes about 15 minutes to make but give it at least 12-14 hours of freezing time. Bring out this delicious ice cream after lunch or dinner at your next summer get-together or pool party to keep everybody cool and refreshed.
