Nigella's No Churn Pomegranate Ice Cream



Pomegranate's are divisive in our house, Andrew and I love them, taking ages ferreting out the juicy seeds, however my husband and daughter don't enjoy this particular experience at all, this recipe unites both sides of the divide. My Daughter has no idea that this is made with pomegranate juice, if so she wouldn't eat it, so to her it's the "pretty pink ice-cream" and it tastes too good not to have a least one bowl!!
I love all no churn ice cream because they're really simple and no different from the machine made stuff. This is smooth and sweet well worth trying. It is so easy to make that this post has more pictures than words!!

Serves 8

Ingredients
2 Pomegranates
1 Lime
175g Icing Sugar
500ml Double Cream ( I used two 284ml cartons Elmea Double Cream, so my ice cream is slightly paler)

Method
Juice the pomegranates and the lime and strain the juices into a bowl (very satisfying work this!).



Add the icing sugar and whisk to dissolve.


Whisk in the double cream and keep whisking until soft peaks form in the pale pink cream.


This is a perfect recipe for little helpers!!


Spoon and smooth the ice cream into the air tight container of your choice and freeze for at lease 4 hours, or overnight (I used an air tight 1.5ltr tub with a lid).


Scatter with some pomegranate seeds before you eat it.
