Valentine’s Day Ice cream


Valentine’s Day Ice cream
Spoil the one you love with this easy dessert which looks as though hours of preparation are behind it. Taking just 20 minutes to prepare and four hours to freeze with no pesky whisking required, there will be plenty of time left to get ready for a romantic Valentine’s night in. We’ve used Viva strawberries from Spain, which are super-sweet and in season Feb-April.
Serves: 8
  • 500ml good quality custard
  • 400ml double cream, lightly whipped
  • 1 vanilla pod, split
  • 500g Viva strawberries
  • 4tbsp caster sugar
  1. In a bowl, fold together the custard, the whipped cream and the vanilla seeds scraped from the pod. Take 400g of strawberries, and blitz together with the sugar. Stir into the custard mix. Chop the rest of the strawberries and add to the mix, folding through.
  2. Line a 1ltr loaf tin with cling film and pour the mixture in, or pour into individual ramekins. Freeze for a minimum of four hours. When ready to serve, take out of the freezer 10 minutes before you want to eat, and serve with fresh strawberries.
