Vanilla Ice Cream with Clementines in Cinnamon Syrup
Refreshing dessert which combines citrus, a hint of spice and the sweetness of ice cream!
Summer is officially here! It has been around 30-32 degrees here in Shanghai. Sunny days, rare blue skies. Such a nice weather.
Summer goes hand in hand with well, ice cream! This recipe is a little “fancy” way to serve your gelato for a nice dinner with friends.
The refreshing flavor of the clementines comes from combining citrus with a hint of spice!
Ingrediens (serves 4):
- 2 cups vanilla ice cream
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 8 clementines (or oranges or tangerines), peeled and sliced
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- fresh mint
Wash up the clementines
Peel and slice them
In a saucepan bring water, sugar and cinnamon stick to a simmer until sugar dissolves
In a large bowl arrange the sliced clementines, pour in the syrup and let it sit for a few hours (overnight better)
To serve divide the clementines between 4 bowls. Add 2 scoops of ice cream per bowl, pour the syrup and decorate with some fresh mint
Serve it right away!
