Prickly Pear-Ginger Ice Cream

This ice-cream has  a unique and delicious flavour, and is also very easy to make.


2 cups cream

3/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoons grated ginger

1 cup prickly-pear juice (from around 3 fruits)



  1.  Remove the skin from the prickly pears (careful about the spines!!), and place in a blender with a little water.  Blend to a smooth puree.  Pour into a sieve above a bowl, to remove the seeds.  You will have to use a spoon to help seperate all the juice.
  2. Mix all the ingredenients in the blender.  Blend well!
  3. Pour into a container and place in the freezer.  Stir time to time as it starts to freeze , for example, exver 1 1/2 hours until it is hard.  (This will help the ice-cream become soft).  Don’t forget to stir it!  Enjoy!
