Ice cream to change your life! This is the easiest recipe ever for ice cream and can be adapted to any flavour you like — chocolate, caramel swirl, any fruit!

What you'll need

400g (14oz) fresh or frozen berries

Juice of 1 lemon

55g (2oz) caster sugar

1pt carton whipping cream

405g can Carnation Condensed Milk Light

1tbsp vanilla extract

To serve

Waffle ice cream cones

Serves 12

Place the berries in a pan with the lemon juice and sugar and cook until syrupy (about 5-10 minutes). Cool, then strain the berry sauce through a sieve to remove the pips.

Beat the cream to soft peaks then add the condensed milk and vanilla and beat again to soft peaks.

Pour the ice cream into a freezable container and swirl through the berry sauce.

Freeze until solid (about three to four hours or overnight).

To serve, leave out for 5-10 minutes before serving in ice cream cones!

Tips You can use any berries for this — try blackcurrants, blueberries or raspberries. Adjust the sugar with the fruit according to taste. Or just make a plain base ice cream with the cream, condensed milk and vanilla and swirl through Carnation Caramel or chocolate sauce.
