4. Crack the egg yolks into a bowl (keep the white for meringues) and whisk in the sugar with an electric whisk. Whisk them together for a few mins till the mix turns pale.
5. Slowly trickle the cream mix into the eggs and sugar, whisking as you add it. Once all the cream is added, stir in the beetroot purée.
6. Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions to churn. No ice cream mixer?
