While I've called this ice cream, it is more like a mix between sorbet and ice cream. It is incredibly simple to make, by using a fleshy, ripe fruit, mixed with whipping cream, condensed milk, coconut milk or yoghurt. As these recipes use low fat versions the final product is quite icy (and refreshing on a hot summer day!) For a creamier product, use full fat versions.

If you plan to keep the ice cream for some time in the freezer, take it out 15 to 20 minutes before serving to allow it to defrost a little. We accidentally broke a tupperware container by trying to break apart bits of ice cream!

You can also use the same ingredients to make ice cream pops:

Rockmelon popsicles

Mix the yoghurt and 1 tablespoon of honey and place a tablespoon full in each of the moulds.
Freeze for 2 hours. Meanwhile, blend the rockmelon with the rest of the honey.
Remove the moulds from the freezer and add the rockmelon mixture. Return to the freezer for at least 6 hours.
