Macadamia, Raspberry Ice Cream Log recipe from Duck Creek Macadamia
2 litres (4 cups or 34 ounces) ice cream, softened (vanilla or chocolate ice cream)
2 cups macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
300g (10 ounces) frozen raspberries (save 1/3 cup for serving)
150g (5 ounces) nougat
Extra roughly chopped macadamia nuts to serve
Line a 20 x 10cm (4 x 8 inch) loaf tin with parchment.
Place ice cream into a large mixing bowl.
Add macadamia nuts, raspberries and nougat to ice cream, using a spatula, gently fold through until just combined.
Press ice cream mixture into lined tin, level top with spatula.
Cover top with parchment, place in freezer to allow ice cream to refreeze.
This is best left overnight, or until ice cream is firm to the touch.
Remove ice cream log from tin with the baking paper.
Serve slices of log with extra chopped macadamia nuts and frozen raspberries.

What is lurking inside beauty products? We should all take the time to read the ingredients of the cosmetics that we cover our bodies with to avoid chemical overload, potential health risks and to ensure that no animals have come to harm for our beauty. It is quite scary stuff, that is why we love the new Beauty Department’s natural tanning product Summer and Man Tan, developed by Nadine Monley a makeup artist who has a strong belief in the benefits of natural beauty products.
