  1. For the ice cream, put the cranberries in a saucepan with the caster sugar and 50ml water. Simmer for 3-4 mins. Allow to cool. Blitz the remainder with 2 tbsp of condensed milk to make a purée.
  2. Whip the cream with the condensed milk and vanilla extract until thick peaks form. Stir through the crushed meringue nests.
  3. Put half the ice-cream mix into a 2ltr freezer-proof container. Dollop over spoonfuls of the cranberry purée using half the mix. Top with the remaining ice cream mix. Dollop spoonfuls of the remaining cranberry purée on top. Zigzag a skewer or the tip of a knife through the mix to create a ripple effect. Freeze for 5 hours or overnight until solid.
  4. To make the cranberry sauce, simmer the cranberries and sugar together with 50ml water for 3-4 mins. Blitz until smooth in a food processor or blender. Pass the sauce through a sieve, then stir in the condensed milk.
  5. Scoop the ice cream and serve with a drizzle of cranberry sauce.
