Updated on July 19, 2012

Ice-cream is a great sweet treat that is very versatile. You can serve it on its own or to accompany a variety of different desserts. There are lots of different ways to make ice-cream and hundreds of different flavors to choose from. Ice-cream can be made in a number of different ways. This first recipe is a bit of a cheat, but it tastes delicious.. I've chosen to make it with blueberries but you could use any frozen fruit you like.

Instructions

  1. Put all the ingredients into the bowl of a food processor with steel blade attached. Make sure the cream is really cold and the blueberries are straight out of the freezer.
  2. Pulse for 10-15 seconds until everything is combined. Serve immediately.

Ingredients

  • 300 ml heavy cream, (chilled)
  • 350 g frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 cup superfine sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Honey and Raspberry Ice-cream

To make this ice-cream for 4 people, you will need:

  • 300 mil heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup superfine sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsp honey
  • 1/4 cup fresh raspberries.

Start by making a custard by heating the cream in a pan until it is just coming to the boil. In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolks and add the sugar. Whisk until it becomes light and fluffy. Now, add a little of the warmed cream, whisking vigorously to prevent the eggs from cooking. Gradually add in the rest of the cream and whisk well. Now return the cream and egg mixture to the pan and heat, stirring continuously. When it thickens enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon, remove from the heat. Stir in the vanilla, honey and raspberries. Allow to cool to room temp and then refrigerate for 1 hour. Pour into ice-cream machine. Switch on to low speed and in 20 minutes, your ice-cream should be ready to serve.

This has a slightly different flavor to it but if you like condensed milk, you will love this ice-cream. To serve four people you will need:

  • 300 ml half and half (single cream)
  • 150 ml condensed milk (chilled)

Simply mix the ingredients together thoroughly, pour into ice-cream machine and mix until set (around 20-25 minutes). I like this on pancakes with fresh strawberries.
