So you got an icecream machine for Christmas? Here are a few luscious frozen desserts which are suddenly super easy to make at home
Liquorice ice cream
Homemade liquorice icecream is divine, made from store-bought liquorice straps. Patience is required when melting the liquorice in the cream but it is well worth the effort.
Blackberry ice cream ripple
This easy icecream uses a mix of ready made custard and cream and summer's blackberries which are stirred through as a ripple.

Pumpkin and pecan ice cream
This could almost be labelled a health dessert! Pumpkin is a such a versatile vegetable and, with a few spices added to the base custard, it makes for a tasty treat. Toasted pecans are incorporated at the end. You could also try other flavours such as prunes or dates, soaked for 10 minutes or so. The possibilities are endless and the texture of this icecream is scrummy.
Eggnog ice cream
Allow 24 hours to make this rich boozy homemade icecream goodness. You can make this several days or weeks in advance of when you wish to serve it. Let it sit out at room temperature for 5 minutes to soften slightly before serving to make scooping easier.
Caramelised pineapple with coconut and lime sorbet
Slip into island time with this delicious zesty sorbet that goes so well with the sticky pineapple.
