  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 300 ml thickened cream (whipping cream)
  • 6 ripe nectarines; pitted

  • nectarines, , cherries, pomegranate & passionfruit ,or top with whatever you like


  1. Add the nectarines to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. A few chunks will be fine.
  2. Line a loaf tin with plastic wrap allowing the sides to overhang. Add the eggs, yolks and honey to a bowl of an electric mixer. Whisk on high speed until it is thick and creamy. It should have almost doubled in size.
  3. Now place the bowl over a pot of simmering water and whisk for 5 minutes or until it has doubled in size. Add the nectarines and whisk to combine.
  4. In a separate bowl, add the cream and whisk until soft peeks form. Add half to the nectarine mixture and fold through. Add the remaining cream and fold through ever so gently.

  5. Pour into the tin and freeze overnight.
  6. To serve turn out onto a serving plate and top with fresh fruit.

Recipe Notes

I don't own an electric hand-mixer so I whisked by hand over the simmering water. You could use a hand mixer if you have one.
