    You do need a good quality blender for this to work! DON'T add water like revirwer below....... she's right, it'll never set. If fruit gets stuck, add little dashes of the cream and dislodge with spatula when machine is turned off! The healthy alternative is add honey, not sugar and low fat natural yoghurt! Any frozen fruit will do..... but not peaches! I've tried them and they are too weak a flavour and make insipid ice-cream! Mango, lime zest and tiny pinch of fresh, chopped mint is the best.... use cream or yog and sugar or honey! Delicious!  -  17 Jun 2011


    Hmmm. well, my blender got stuck, so much jiggling was required. I had to put some water in the thing in the end. Poured more cream in because of the water. and currently it hasn't set! Its been in the freezer for over and hour!!! It tastes lovely. But it hasn't set yet! So 5 minute ice cream not really!!!  -  19 Jun 2010


    This recipe is really good. Did dinner for 9 yesterday so doubled the recipe. Really quick and easy. Everybody really loved it. All want the recipe. Thank you for this. As another poster said, you do need a good quality blender, if yours can do ice, it should be fine.  -  30 Jul 2017
