Serves: 4 

  • 330ml milk

  • 650ml double cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons mixed spice
  • 3-4 broken up mince pies

Prep:20min  ›  Extra time:2hr freezing  ›  Ready in:2hr20min 

  1. Pour the milk and sugar into a medium bowl and whisk until the sugar has dissolved. Stir in the cream and vanilla, mixed spice cover and chill if time allows.
  2. Turn the ice cream maker on, pour the mixture into the freezer bowl and leave the ice cream to churn, 20-25 minutes.
  3. This will produce a soft ice cream. At this point add the broken up minced pies. If you would like a firm ice cream, put the ice cream in an air-tight container and place in the freezer for 2 hours.

The Cheats Way

A tub of vanilla ice cream
2 tsp mixed spice
3 mince pies or 4 it’s up to you, broken up into smallish pieces

How easy is this, just take the ice cream out the freezer and let it defrost until it is pliable, but not too defrosted, transfer to a nice big mixing bowl and mix in the mince pies and mixed spice.
Then you just transfer the mixture back into the ice cream tub and put back in the freezer for a few hours to harden up.
