A lot of people go out for food on Valentine’s Day, Dean and I have nearly been together 5 years now and we have never been out for a meal on that day!

Being real foodies we like to make a night of it and cook, Dean normally does the starter, then we share the main course and I do the pudding.  This year we haven’t actually got any plans unless he surprises me! We have been very busy the last few weeks and it’s kind of slipped our minds but I’m sure we will cook something really yummy and have a lovely evening.

At least we have a big tub of Strawberry gelato in the freezer if all else fails 😂.

After the way our Christmas gelato was received I thought this would go down a storm for Valentine’s. It’s great for getting romantic – put a load of scoops in one bowl with two spoons 😉. If you don’t get to eat it all on Valentine’s the good news is that the gelato will last a long time in the freezer.

  1. Staying at home is the best! I’d love to give this gelato a try after a home cooked meal 🙂

    1. Hi Megan thanks for stopping by, you will love this after a home cooked meal it is really refreshing.

  2. Condensed milk in gelato? I’ve never heard of that but what an interesting way to sweeten the ice cream! You should try making Strawberry sortbet if you haven’t already. We made it recently on the blog and it is fantastic!

    1. I always use condensed milk, it works so well and gives it a lovely light but creamy flavour. I will be sure to take a look at your strawberry sorbet, I love a sorbet after dinner it’s so refreshing!
