Saturday treats: Decadent amasi cookies ice cream and chocolate mousse

For those with lactose intolerance or dairy allergies, look away. These sweet and satisfying desserts, amasi cookies ice cream and chocolate mousse are decadent versions with some local ingredients.

The amasi cookies ice cream recipe will produce a velvety, creamy ice cream from the cream, a local favourite amasi (sour milk) and condensed milk. Start this recipe early in the day to have it set either for lunch or dinner.

For the mousse get more chocolatey flavours by adding a cup of chocolate Steri Stumpie drink or any other sweet dairy drink.
