I haven't made any ice-cream for about 3 years. I used to do the full "make the custard, then let it cool, then add the cream & flavours" thing, but this year ds wants to have a go.

Do any of you have any simple quicker recipes we can use ??

Dime Bar Ice Cream
4 full sized dime bars (plus extra to sprinkle on top)
600ml single cream
6 egg yolks
125 g caster sugar
1. Break the Dime Bars into pieces and put into a food processor and blitz till finely ground, like glassy sand. Tip out on to a plate and put in the fridge.

2. Warm the single cream. Whisk the yolks and sugar, then pour, still whisking, the warmed cream over the egg mixture. Transfer to a saucepan and cook till a velvety custard. Cool then chill and, before pouring into an ice cream machine, fold in the processor pulverised Dime Bars. Serves 8.

250ml milk
1(425g) tin cream of coconut, such as Coco Lopez
350ml double cream
100g desiccated coconut (optional)

Combine the milk and cream of coconut in the container of a food processor or blender, and mix thoroughly. Stir in cream and desiccated coconut.
Pour into the container of an ice cream maker.

Cream of coconut is NOT unsweetened coconut milk or cream. This will taste yuk, if you dont use Cream of coconut
