  • Step 1

    Add all of the ingredients of the ice cream to a medium sized non-stick pan. Place over a medium heat until the sugar has completely dissolved and the mixture begins to bubble. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 1–2 minutes, whisking constantly, until the mixture thickens slightly.

  • Step 2

    Remove saucepan from heat and pour mixture into the tub, place a layer of clingfilm over the mixture and gently smooth over. This will prevent a skin from forming on top. Place the tub in an ice bath to cool completely. Once cooled, place storage lid on the tub and freeze for 24 hours.

  • Step 3

    Once frozen, remove tub from freezer, remove lid, then place tub in outer bowl. Install paddle into outer bowl lid and lock the lid assembly on the outer bowl. Place bowl assembly on motor base and twist the handle right to raise the platform and lock in place.

  • Step 4

    Select ICE CREAM. Once the programme has finished, using a spoon, create a 4cm wide hole that reaches to the bottom of the tub. Add the quartered mini mince pies to the hole and process again using the MIX-IN function.

    5. Once processing is complete, remove the ice cream and serve immediately.


    For extra Christmas flavour add in 1 tbsp candied mixed peel to the mix in!
