Frozen Fruit Terrine

Layers of cookie crust, creamy custard, and various fruits come together for this colorful dessert terrine.


  • 5 ounces plain cookies
  • 5 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 1/2 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons condensed milk
  • 3/4 tablespoon powdered gelatin, dissolved per box instructions
  • 1/2 cup caster (superfine) sugar
  • 1/3 cup plus 1 1/2 tablespoons pomegranate juice
  • 1 orange, zested and peeled
  • 7 ounces raspberries
  • 7 ounces blueberries
  • 7 ounces strawberries


  1. Prepare a loaf pan with plastic wrap, allowing extra to hang over the sides.
  2. In a food processor, blitz cookies until fine. Add melted butter and pulse until combined. Transfer to prepared pan and press down to form a crust. Place in freezer.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk the cream into soft peaks, then fold in the condensed milk. Remove crust from freezer, add custard mixture and use a spatula to smooth. Return to freezer.
  4. In a small bowl, combine gelatin powder and water and set aside until dissolved.
  5. In a saucepan over medium heat, add sugar, gelatin and pomegranate juice. Whisk to combine. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat and let cool.
  6. Slice orange into wedges and add to a mixing bowl. Add berries and stir to combine. Remove terrine from the freezer, and add fruit in a layer over the cream mixture. Pour the gelatin mixture over top. Return to freezer until set, about 4 hours. Slice and serve with extra custard.
