  • Ingredients:
    • 100 g blackcurrant puree (see note below for preparing the puree)
    • 450 ml heavy cream (33-35% fat)
    • 200 g sweetened condensed milk
    • Optional: freeze-dried berries or nuts for added texture
  • Instructions:
    1. If you're making the puree from scratch, simmer the frozen blackcurrants in a saucepan for about 10 minutes, then pass through a sieve to remove the skin and seeds.
    2. In a large bowl, whip cold heavy cream until soft peaks form.
    3. Gently stir in the sweetened condensed milk and blackcurrant puree until well combined.
    4. Pour the mixture into a container suitable for freezing. Freeze for at least 4 hours, stirring the ice cream every hour to help break up ice crystals and ensure a smooth texture.
    5. Optional: Before freezing, add some freeze-dried berries or chopped nuts for additional flavors and textures.

Enjoy your refreshing and creamy blackcurrant ice cream, a perfect treat to beat the heat!
