Ingredients:

  • ½ cup (125ml) cream, well chilled 
  • ½ cup (100g) castor sugar 
  • 2 tsp (10ml) vanilla essence (optional)  
  • 1L box custard, chilled  

 

To assemble:  

  • 1 cup (250ml) cream 
  • ¼ cup (60ml) castor sugar 
  • 1 tsp (5ml) vanilla essence  
  • 6 plums, cut into wedges 
  • 6 nectarines, cut into wedges 
  • 1 packet (200g) Nutticrust biscuits, crushed 

 

Method

  1. Whisk chilled cream, sugar and vanilla to stiff peaks. 
  2. Whisk a third of this mixture through cold custard, then gently fold through remaining mixture – doing it in two parts keeps the cream aerated.  
  3. Spoon ice-cream mixture into a freezer-safe bowl and freeze for 2-3 hour. 
  4. Whisk to break up any lumps and freeze again for 4 hours, or overnight. 
  5. To assemble, whisk cream, sugar and vanilla together to medium-stiff peaks. 
  6. Spoon cookie crumbs into the base of serving glasses. 
  7. Top with fruit, ice-cream, whipped cream and a sprinkle of cookie crumbs.
