Always on the lookout for exciting new flavour combinations, local handmade ice cream makers, Baboo Gelato, is launching hot cross bun gelato for the Easter holidays at their kiosks in West Bay, Lyme Regis and Morcombelake. Made with real hot cross buns, this deliciously smooth, creamy and subtly spiced gelato is the perfect Easter treat. What a great way to get the kids out for a run about on the beach and enjoying some fresh sea air during the holidays? Each kiosk will be open every day from 12-5pm during the school holidays (6th-23rd April).
Baboo Gelato love to encourage all visitors to their kiosks to sample the different flavoured gelato and sorbets on offer, and even fussy eaters are tempted to try new tastes, such as damson ripple and passionfruit sorbet, which recently won a Taste of the West Gold Award. There are usually at least three sorbets on offer at the kiosks too, so dairy-free diets are well catered for.
The team make their gelatos and sorbets by hand using the finest ingredients that are locally sourced where possible, including organic milk from a dairy just outside of Bridport. Much of the fruit used in their recipes comes from founder Annie Hanbury’s own garden, or from local farms and suppliers. The results speak for themselves, and Baboo has recently won multiple Taste of the West awards for a number of their gelato and sorbets, including Golds for their Vanilla gelato and Mint Choc Chip gelato, which is made using Summerdown peppermint from Hampshire.
You’ll find Baboo Gelato at the beachside kiosks in West Bay (kiosk number 5, second closest to the bridge) and Lyme Regis (kiosk number 3, Marine Parade), plus the brand new Morcombelake trailer at Felicity’s farm shop. Baboo is also available in select farm shops, delis and restaurants in the South West, including the River Cottage Canteen. Flavours are available on a rotational basis.
