Refreshing Raspberry Ice Cream
We’re using raspberries for this tasty and refreshing ice cream, however, this recipe is so
versatile, you can switch up the berries to make any ice cream flavour of your choice! Our Frozen Raspberries are great for this recipe as they are a mix of raspberry crumb, broken raspberries and a small amount of whole fruit, making it perfect for ice cream making!
- 450g Frozen Raspberries
- 2 tbsp water
- 4 egg yolks
- 150g caster sugar
- 600ml double cream
Preparation time: 20 minutes
- Heat raspberries in a pan for 1 minute on a medium heat. When turned into a pulp, push the mix through a nylon sieve.
- Make a simple custard by adding the cream into a pan with the beaten egg yolks and the sugar.
- Stir the mixture frequently over a medium heat to prevent the bottom from burning. You want the mixture to warm through so that the eggs cook and the sugar dissolves but you don’t want the mixture to boil. Once you have reached this point and the mixture has thickened to a custard consistency, pour into a cold jug and leave to cool down.
- When cool, mix in the raspberry puree and transfer the mix into an ice cream maker (if you have one!) following the manufacturer's recipe timing. If you don’t have an ice cream maker, place the mixture in a plastic container and put it in the freezer. Remove the mix every 30-60 minutes and give it a good mix with an electric whisk. you will need to repeat this process 4-5 times until you are happy with the consistency. Enjoy!
