One of my amazing fellow food bloggers who I hold in very high esteem who has encouraged me from the very beginning of my blogging, has inspired me for this post. Fae @ Twist and Tango very recently posted a recipe for Ice In Paradise/Yakh Dar Behesht. A sweet Persian dessert that I fell in love with straight away. I knew I had to make it once I had seen it!

I had all the ingredients to go, apart from the clear rose water but I had a dark pink rose syrup that I used in its place. Which now makes it ice in a pink paradise! I have halved the original recipe, as it’s just for my family!

So beautiful and so very elegant, the creaminess of the diamond chilled delicacy just melts in your mouth. Thank you Fae for introducing me to this gorgeous dessert! And for all…

Sweet luxury faluda milk


A cooling refreshing ice cream float in milk laced with sweet rose syrup. Plus the addition of basil seeds which is closely related to the new wonder chia seeds! Also with vermicelli that sinks to the bottom and makes it a treat at the end to scoop out from the bottom of your tall glass!

One of my husband’s favourites when we go to an Indian restaurant. So as he’s feeling under the weather, I knew this large pink glass full of sweet milk and ice cream would cheer him up no end! And I was right lol!



2 tbsp basil seeds
3 tbsp rose syrup
4 tbsp vermicelli mini
Cold milk
Scoop of vanilla ice cream


• Boil the vermicelli for 5 minutes and strain. Keep aside to cool



• Put the basil seeds in a bowl and soak the seeds with enough cold water for 5 minutes


• Pour in the rose syrup into a tall glass add the soaked basil seeds and 2
tablespoons of the boiled vermicelli. Add cold milk to and stir. Place the scoop of ice cream onto the milk to top it off


You’ll definitely need a tall spoon to devour the goodness!

Enjoy! Much love D x
