Sweet vanilla roasted pureed plums folded through creamy no-churn perfection and frozen. Drizzled with salted caramel sauce and candied hazelnuts, these popsicles will see you through the change of season in perfect fashion.
For the roasted plums
600g (approx 13) plums, halved and de-stoned
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste
Pinch of salt
For the no-churn ice-cream base
600ml whipping cream
397g (1 can) condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla bean extract
40g (1/4 cup) salted caramel sauce, optional
Chopped hazelnuts optional
- Turn your oven to 180C/350F
- In a medium bowl, toss plums, sugar, vanilla extract and salt then stir till plums are coated. Lay cut side down on baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
- In a blender, add your roasted plums and whizz until fully pureed. Push puree through a sieve and discard skin.
- In a medium bowl, using electric beaters, whip your cream until soft peaks form. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, mix together the condensed milk and vanilla extract. The fold in the whipped cream.
- Pour the pureed plums (once totally cooled) into the whipped cream mixture and fold through creating ribbons of colour or fold through thoroughly until well combined.
- Pour into your popsicle moulds or a freezer safe container and freeze until full set
1. Use store bought caramel sauce (totally acceptable) or create a jar of your own. Recipe found here.
2. To release the popsicles from their moulds, run the moulds for a couple of seconds under hot water.
3. To store in the freezer: release all the popsicles from the mould and individually wrap in baking paper and then store in an airtight container or ziplock bag.
4. To make candied hazelnuts, I tossed them in to toast them for a couple of minutes and then added to the pan a tablespoon or two of maple syrup and brown sugar and let them simmer for another couple of minutes. Then I let poured them on baking paper and let them cool before chopping.
