Stir to blend thoroughly. Prepare in an ice cream maker, according to manufacturer's instructions or make by hand. Place ice cream in a freezer tray and freeze until starting to set around edges. Remove from freezer, turn into a chilled bowl and beat to break up ice crystals. Return to freezer tray and freeze. Repeat twice, then leave to freeze completely.
