Tried this recipe for the first time yesterday and i must say it was very easy and I added strawberries. it tasted vey nice but could have done with a few more strawberries. I will try it again but use bannanas next time.

I tried this over the weekend with the edition of some homemade lemon curd swirled through it and it was delicious. The tartness of the lemons broke down the 'fatty' taste from the cream. The lemons were home grown which added to the 'specialness'.

This is really good! I put mine in a Mackie's tub (previously my favoirite ice cream) and I can barely tell the difference! I added some vanilla seeds too coz I just felt like it. Looks great, tastes great, and no odd mouth feel like some have commented on. And better yet it was so so easy!

Lovely consistency, really easy. I pureed some blackcurrants, raspberries and cherries from our garden, sieved it to remove pips and added to the cream and condensed milk before freezing. Even my fruit-phobic son loved this! Will definitely make again

Absolutely delicious. Easy to make and everyone raved about it. I used low fat condensed milk and doubled up the vanilla essence. Also used a plastic container for freezing as it was easier to get out. Will make regularly. Used it to accompany strawberries and raspberry and blueberry crumble.

Great recipe, although original is very creamy. I used nestle dulche de leche can instead of condensed milk for caramel flavour and added some munchie bites. Also did lemon and rum and raisin, gorgeous!!

Lovely. Really nice smooth consistency. Had it with apple crumble yesterday. Will try flavouring with chocolate or strawberries when they are in season. I used a whole tin of condensed milk with 600ml extra thick cream (which had been reduced in price) and about half to three quarters of a pint of whole milk. I had to whisk it for about 10 minutes. I ended up with 2 litres of ice cream.

Have just made this ice cream for Christmas. I added milk chocolate drops and white chocolate and have frozen it in small pudding tins. On Christmas day the kids (and big kids who don't like Christmas Pud!) will have their own small ice cream puddings which I will top with some melted chocolate. I added extra vanilla essence, it is quite sweet and rich but my niece tasted it last night and thought it was lovely. Might try it next time with a bit of greek yoghurt or creme fraiche. But it does freeze to a wonderful consistency - definitely no ice crystals.

consistency is ok... no crystals at least and its super simple, but like Cookie01 said - after every mouthful it tastes horribly greasy on the top of your mouth. I won't use this recipe again. give me a coffee tin inside a coffee tin and an egg based recipe any day.
