Rasberry Ice-cream

No hassle, no nonsense ice-cream

This is a very quick and easy method to make delicious ice-cream. No need for a fancy list of ingedients or complicated instructions... gone too is the need for an ice-cream maker!

125g Rasberries
250ml Greek yoghurt
250ml Cream
100g icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla essense

Mash the rasberries in a bowl, don't dream of throwing away the juice. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Transfer to a plastic container and freeze. After a few hours, remove from the freezer and mix again; repeat a few times until the ice-cream is ready. Don't leave it too long in the freezer (ie serve and eat just as soon as it's ready, say 12 hours) as it will get icy.
