British farm produce...
A season into milking sheep Top Paddock Dairy decided to make ice cream. Thirty-eight recipes later they now have a naturally nutritious sheep milk ice cream called Friezee.
Keeping the ingredients to a minimum for the allergy sufferers, it's gluten free and has no artificial sweeteners, colours or additives, less is more!
Many samples were made, tested on family, friends and unsuspecting people in the local pubs.
Sheep milk is an undiscovered marvel it's like gold top cow's milk. Friezee has the same creamy taste as all the other ice creams with the added benefit of being naturally high in vitamins and minerals.
The texture of Friezee is more of a cross between sorbet and ice cream which gives it a lovely light creamy feel, which appeals to kids and adults alike.
We made many samples and tested them on friends, family and unsuspecting victims in the local pubs, nobody picked that it was sheep milk - which must be a good thing as when you say it's sheep milk people automatically associate it with goats milk, in fact sheep milk is more like gold top cow's milk than goats milk. It has the same creamy taste as all the other ice creams with the added benefit of being naturally high in vitamins and minerals, the texture is more of a cross between sorbet and ice cream which gives it a lovely light feel.
Another benefit is that those who are dairy intolerant may be able to eat sheep milk ice cream as the fat molecules are smaller and more easily digested.
How did you come up with the name? I hear you ask. Well, Matt and I were milking the sheep one morning and throwing a few ideas about the parlour when I (yes me - the blonde one) said, 'the ice cream is very cold and the sheep are Frieslands and if you mix the two you get FRIEZEE!' For a while we were just going to call it 'sheep milk ice cream', but that's a bit dull so Friezee it is.
Now you know all about it you'd better go and try it!
