I have to confess to a bit of an ice-cream addiction, so this easy recipe suits me perfectly. it requires no churning, so you don’t need an ice-cream machine. it’s lovely on its own, but you can also use it as a base and add whatever flavours you like.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
220g caster sugar
500ml thickened cream
395g tinned sweetened condensed milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Method

  1. Whip the sugar and the cream to soft peaks and then add the condensed milk and vanilla extract and whisk again to form soft peaks. Pour the mixture into a freezer-proof container. Cover with a lid and freeze for at least 4–6 hours or overnight.

Variations

  • Chocolate ice-cream

    Stir in 250 g melted chocolate to the basic mixture, then freeze, as above. Use dark, white, or any kind of flavoured chocolate you like – I’m fond of orange or ginger. You can also add 100 g chocolate chips to add texture.

    Raspberry ripple

    Stir in 125 ml of raspberry sauce to the basic mixture, then freeze, as above.

    Passionfruit

    Stir in 250 g passionfruit pulp (about 12–15 passionfruit) to the basic mixture, then freeze, as above.

    Liquorice

    Melt 200 g liquorice in a microwave, stir into the basic mixture, then freeze, as above.

    Christmas cake ice-cream

    Add ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg, 3 tablespoons brandy, 100 g mixed dried fruit, 50 g roasted blanched almonds and 50 g chopped glacé cherries to the basic mixture, then freeze, as above.
