    Serves: 8


    125g shelled pistachios
    150ml whole milk
    100g golden caster sugar
    500g carton Ambrosia Deluxe Custard, Vanilla with Clotted Cream
    300ml pot essential Waitrose Double Cream, softly whipped
    100g dried cherries, roughly chopped
    100g ginger nut biscuits, broken into small pieces 


    1. Whizz the nuts in a small food processor until finely chopped, then place in a saucepan with the milk and sugar. Bring to the boil, then remove from the heat and leave to cool.

    2. Fold together the cooled pistachio mixture, custard and cream, then stir in the cherries and ginger nut biscuits. Transfer to a freezer container and freeze for 1½hours.
