Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Freezing Time: 3-4 hours
Serves: 4-6


  • 600ml double cream
  • 397g can condensed milk
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 3 limes, 2 zested, all juiced
  • 60ml gin
  • 150g raspberries, to serve


Step 1: To begin, whip with cream until it starts to thicken, then using the Morphy Richards Total Control Hand Blender gently whisk in the condensed milk, honey, most of the lime zest, all of the juice and the gin. 

Step 2: Next, pour into a shallow container and freeze for approximately 3-4 hours or overnight until firm. Don’t worry! The gin stops it from freezing solid so you don’t need to stir the cream as it is setting.

Step 3: 10 minutes before serving, remove the ice cream from the freezer so that it can slightly cool. Top with the remaining lime zest and raspberries to serve. 

Ice cream can be frozen for two months.
