I love presenting my kids with something that makes them go ‘Wow’ and this is definitely one of those recipes.
It’s sweet, creamy and refreshingly cold, everything you want in a summer dessert! Homemade ice cream is super easy and satisfying to make, getting creative with your favourite flavours is exciting, why not try making a banoffee pie version of this recipe by replacing the frozen berries with frozen bananas?
(makes 4 large or 6 smaller servings)
300ml double cream
200g frozen berries (I used strawberries and raspberries)
150g fresh mixed berries, halved where required
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp flaked almonds (optional)
1 tbsp pistachios (optional)
Mint leaves (optional)
Oat Wafer (optional) find the recipe here
- Whip the double cream and honey together until it forms stiff peaks, put to one side.
- In a blender or food processor, place the frozen berries and yoghurt and blend until it forms into an ice cream consistency, you want to catch the mixture just as it turns into ice cream to retain its thickness, this is usually around 30 seconds to a minute depending on how powerful your machine is.
- Put 6 tablespoons of the double cream and 6 fresh berries to one side before constructing your Knickerbocker Glory.
- Working quickly, place a couple of fresh berries in the bottom of your glass followed by a couple of tablespoons of ice cream followed by a dollop of the double cream. Repeat these layers until your glasses are full.
- Top with the saved double cream then sprinkle over flaked almonds, pistachios, mint leaves and your saved berries. Finish off with an oat wafer and serve immediately.
