8 secret recipes celebrities want you to try
1. Barbara Streisand’s Instant Coffee Ice Cream
Everyone knows how to do ice cream in a bag at home, but American actress-filmmaker Barbra Streisand’s unique recipe is a lot classier – and tastier too.
Making ice cream without an ice cream maker can get messy, but Streisand’s recipe takes an effortless 45 minutes. Her recipe comes complete with ingredients for a complementary nutty chocolate sauce, which pairs nicely with the flavor profile of instant coffee.
Streisand’s a genius on-stage, but her recipe shows some creative thinking too. Her use of marshmallows for consistency and flavor in the ice cream is particularly interesting.

5. Meghan Markle’s Zucchini Bolognese
Marrying into the British royal family was a revolutionary act for Meghan Markle, and so is her Bolognese pasta recipe. Unlike the usual fair, Markle’s recipe uses melted zucchini as the base for a rich pasta sauce.
To make Markle’s Zucchini Bolognese, you’ll need most of the standard ingredients like olive oil, grated Parmesan cheese and onions. Because the sauce is essentially liquid zucchini, the dish demands a whopping 4 hours to prepare. Quite a lot of effort for a dish that’s fit for royalty.
