Nougat and pistachio ice cream


  • 600ml double cream
  • 250g condensed milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 2 heaped tbsp of pistachio cream (we used Fabbri)
  • 160g nougat, chopped into chunks, plus extra to garnish
  • chocolate-dipped ice cream cones, to serve (optional)


  • STEP 1

    In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, or using electric beaters, whip the cream, condensed milk, vanilla and a pinch of sea salt flakes until it is thick, stiff and holds a peak.

  • STEP 2

    Fold through the pistachio cream and nougat pieces, then transfer to a freezer-safe container. Cover and freeze overnight or for at least 5 hrs.

  • STEP 3

    Scoop into chocolate-dipped cones, drizzled with a little more pistachio cream and dotted with extra nougat pieces, if you like.
