There's nothing quite like fruit and ice cream for dessert, especially in summer and especially when you've made it yourself!

3 large egg yolks
1 cup of caster sugar
600mls of cream
150mls of milk
berries/chocolate chips or a tin of caramel

Beat the egg yolks and sugar until they're a pale colour and quite fluffy. Stir in the cream and milk and make sure it's mixed in well.

For a berry flavoured ice cream - mash the berries with a little apple juice and stir them through the ice cream mixture.

Sprinkle a handful of chocolate chips into the mixture and stir them through.

Or drop blobs of caramel into the mixture and stir that through. 

Pour the ice cream mixture into a freezer-proof container and freeze fro one hour.  Stir the mixture to break up the ice crystals then re-freeze until the ice cream is firm.

You may need to leave the ice cream out to soften a little before you try to serve it or it can be heated for just a few seconds in the microwave if you need it in a hurry.
