Coffee Walnut Ice- Cream

It takes some time, no doubt, but is completely worth the effort. This will probably be the best ice-cream you have ever tasted, more satisfying because you have made it at home! With the stimulating flavour of coffee, and the salty crunch of walnuts, this Coffee Walnut Ice-Cream is something your family will love. Make sure you remember to take it out of the freezer when semi-set, to blend and add the nuts, before freezing again. Once out of the freezer, serve immediately.
