No-churn cream-tea ice cream

Need a low-effort, tasty summer dessert? This no-churn ice cream is just what you're looking for. Infused with Earl Grey tea leaves to give a mellow flavour, the chopped strawberries and conserve offer a sweet contrast. Scoop up and serve in luxurious waffle cones for a treat made for pleasing the crowd.

  1. Pour the double cream into a small pan with Earl Grey leaf tea. Gently bring to a simmer over a medium heat, then pour into a heatproof bowl or jug. Cover, leave to cool, then transfer to the fridge until completely cool (this is very important, otherwise the cream won’t whisk).

  2. Pour through a sieve into a large mixing bowl to remove the tea leaves. Whip the infused cream with condensed milk to soft peaks.

  3. De-stalk the strawberries and roughly chop. Crumble the shortbread fingers into the cream along with the strawberries and the strawberry conserve. Fold to combine.

  4. Transfer to a 1ltr airtight container and freeze for at least 10 hrs, or overnight. Serve in waffle cones with extra shortbread crumbled on top. Will keep in the freezer for up to 1 month.
