No churn pomegranate Ice cream ( Helado de granadas)

Love pomegranates and Im sure you noticed that :)

And I love to freeze the juice and seeds for Christmas because in this time are a lot of recipes.
I made this Ice cream some days ago, we are still are in winter but he have some lovely days with a lot of sun.
And you dont need  Ice cream maker.
Anyway if you don't have still pomegranates you can use store bought pomegranate juice instead of deseeding pomegranate.

3 fresh pomegranates or 3/4 cup store bought pomegranate juice.
1 lemon (the juice)
175 g icing sugar
500 ml double cream


Juice two of the pomegranates amd the lemon and strain the juices into a large bowl. Save the third pomegranate to use the seeds before serving.

Sift in the icing sugar and whisk to dissolve.
You can use the whisk attachment of your stand mixer or other.

Add the double cream to the pomegranate mixture and whisk
 until soft peaks form.

Transfer the pomegranate whipped cream to an airtight freezer-safe container and freeze at least 3 hours .

Remove from freezer 15 minutes before serving to soften, then serve in bowls and scatter with seeds from the other pomegranate.
