Strawberry and salted nuts ice cream

Serves: 4 - 6
Total Time: 20 mins + 6 hrs, to chill


  • 250ml (1 cup) double-thick/ thick cream
  • 150g icing sugar, sifted
  • 500ml (2 cups) fresh cream, whipped to soft peaks
  • 100g mixed salted nuts, roughly chopped
  • seeds of 1 vanilla pod
  • large pinch salt
  • 500g fresh strawberries, mashed + extra, to garnish
  • fresh mint leaves, to garnish



Use a free-standing mixer or an electric handheld beater to whisk the double-thick/thick cream and icing sugar together until thick and smooth. Fold in the freshly whipped cream, salted nuts, vanilla seeds, salt and mashed strawberries.


Transfer the mixture to a freezer-proof bowl and freeze until firm, about 6 hours. Remove from freezer about 10 minutes before serving.


Enjoy scoops of the ice cream garnished with the fresh strawberries and mint leaves.
