Treat me: Passionfruit Ice cream

Passionfruit must be the best thing about autumn. Just when you think there are no more fruit treats to be had until strawberry season starts again, these dimpled purple eggs start appearing. About this time four years ago I remember the Boy Wonder coming home from work with a small brown paper bag under his arm. In it were six passionfruit and they made our London flat smell like the tropics. At £1 a pop, we savoured each one like they were made of gold.

Passionfruit Ice cream
This is another iteration of this ice cream recipe – possibly my most favourite yet. It takes minutes to make and tastes almost good for you. This uses about six passionfruit – if you’ve got lots of them then you could make a simple syrup (two parts passionfruit pulp to one part caster sugar, bring to boil, simmer for five minutes) and drizzle it over the top.

150ml (about 1/2 a cup plus 2 Tbsp) passionfruit pulp
175g icing sugar
500ml cream

Mix the passionfruit and icing sugar together in a large bowl. Pour in the cream. Whisk until soft peaks form.
Pour into a lidded plastic container and freeze for at least four hours. Let soften for five minutes out of the freezer before serving.

Have a great weekend, everyone x

    How lovely, I can't wait until it is warmer enough here (and with the forecast at the moment it is going to be a long time!) to eat icecream. I had never thought of using icing sugar either. Genius suggestion!

    Oh you, with your passionfruit ice cream. It's FREEZING here! But I love passionfruit, the best I ever had were in NZ, over here they can be a bit bitter and tasteless. But this ice cream looks delicious, a taste of summer/autumn, I can't wait!

    I adore passionfruit. I was first introduced to it when we were wooffing in Australia a long time ago and a load of these weird brown wrinkled things were littering someone's garden – I was smitten at first taste. I haven't had ice-cream though.
