Gelato alla cannella

Cinnamon ice cream – a winter holiday dessert

Are you still looking for a simple dessert for Christmas?


Try this cinnamon ice cream

It tastes delicious and is easy and quick to make.


If you don’t like cinnamon, you can of course use another spice

For example, cardamom, star anise, tonka beans, or ginger.

You can also prepare this cinnamon ice cream a few days in advance.

Because it has so much cream in it, you don’t need an ice-cream machine. It will also taste good if you just fill it into a long cake mold.


Then simply arrange and decorate it on the festive day.

For example, with cinnamon and dried persimmon or a delicious Christmas cookie!
