With just two ingredients and five minutes prep, this deliciously fruity strawberry ice cream is our quickest and easiest recipe yet, with or without an ice cream machine
Serves: 6
Prep time: 5 mins
Skill level: Easy peasy
Costs: Cheap as chips


    • 340g jar strawberry preserve/conserve
    • 500g carton fresh chilled vanilla custard (preferably a luxury version)
    • Ice-cream cones, to serve


    1. Tip the strawberry preserve into a bowl and beat it until it’s runny, then beat in the custard and freeze the mixture in an ice-cream maker. Or pour it into a suitable freezer container and place in the freezer, beating it regularly, so that it freezes evenly to give a smooth texture and large ice crystals don’t form.
    1. Once frozen, this ice cream should still remain soft enough to scoop straight from the freezer into ice-cream cones. It will also keep in the freezer for up to 3 months.
