Custard ice cream – Ice cream lovers rejoice. This unbelievably easy to make ice cream is the ticket to summer fun. Decorate with your favorite toppings to add more color to the season.
Hey everyone! Welcome to another fun day filled with amazing recipes. Today, we’re going to talk about a super simple ice cream recipe that also happens to be surprisingly delicious and perfect for summer.
Ice creams never fail to get me excited just because they’re one of my most favorite ways to celebrate summer. Although we are right in the middle of fall (in Australia), we experienced drastic and unusual weather changes over the past few days bringing in summer vibes. And I found the perfect excuse to whip up this creamy custard ice cream.
Imagine your favorite custard with an ice cream makeover. You know, creamy, silky custard with layers of whipped cream and a touch of rainbow sprinkles. A treat for your tastebuds, indeed!
All in all, this is a super exciting recipe to make. First, we’ll make the custard and then fold it into the whipped cream. Custard powder is going to be the base of this recipe. If you’re familiar with making custard from custard powder, this custard ice cream recipe will be easy peasy for you. As you know, it’s the easiest way to make homemade custard.
So, let’s start with the custard. First, you’ll need to mix custard powder and milk together in a bowl. Make sure you get a lump-free mixture. Next up, boil the milk and dissolve the sugar. Now, add in custard mixture little by little to get smooth, lump-free texture. Make sure you stir continuously to create the perfect custard for this custard ice cream.
Continue stirring until you get a thick consistency. The perfect custard will be thick, smooth and silky. You can also add in the flavoring at this stage. I prefer the classic vanilla extract. Play around with different flavors like rose essence, peppermint etc to create your favorite version. Now, let this custard mixture cool down completely before adding it to the whipped cream.
Whip the cream until you see soft, fluffy peaks. Then fold in cooled custard. Remember the custard must be cooled down before adding to the cream. Warm custard mixed with chilled cream is a recipe for disaster.
Pour the ice cream mixture into a freezable container, and freeze for about 6-8 hours. Scoop out, decorate with sprinkles, and enjoy!
