Perfect treat while watching Wimbledon

Summer is here! The smell of freshly cut grass is in the air and the atmosphere is rich with the possibility of sporting victory. For this year's Wimbledon, why not help yourself through the stress of it all by eating bucket loads of this here ice-cream? Massive plus: it really is a doddle to make. 

 

Makes 1 tub of ice-cream
You will need:

  • 600ml double cream 
  • vanilla essence
  • 397ml tin of condensed milk
  • an electric whisk
  • ready-made meringues
  • strawberries, husked
  • a potato masher or a fork

Step 3

Keep whisking for approximately 3 minutes until your mixture looks like this. It should be the consistency of thick whipped cream. We found that the stiffer our mixture was whipped, the better it froze.

Step 4

Tip the cream into a loaf tin or freezer-friendly container. In a separate bowl, mash the meringues and strawberries together using a masher or the back of a fork (and your pent up frustrations). Fold the strawberry mixture into your whipped cream to create a lovely ripple effect.
