Three Homemade Ice Cream Recipes

I love making homemade ice cream. I thought I would share some of my personal recipes and see if you like them as much as I do. Enjoy!

*Note: There is a custard recipe at the end which is used for the three flavors. So make the flavor recipe first and then the custard. Then after the two hour chilling time, mix the flavor and custard together and churn.

Flavors:

1. Base Flavor: Dark Chocolate Ice Cream

4 oz. Ghirardelli chocolate 100% cacao unsweetened baking bar, melted

¼ cup heavy whipping cream

¼ cup of white sugar

1 and 1/8 teaspoon or up to 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract (less for bitter, more for sweeter)

Mix together and chill in fridge while you make custard:

*Note: After chilling, microwave base with half a cup of cream until it mixes smoothly. This is because base will be hard and will not mix with cream and custard.

2. Base Flavor: Pistachio Ice Cream

4 oz. shelled pistachio crushed/chopped (no shells)

¼ cup heavy whipping cream

¼ cup of white sugar

1 and 1/8 teaspoon or up to 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract (by preference)

Mix together and chill in fridge while you make custard:

3. Base Flavor: Coffee Ice Cream

3 Starbucks Via single serving Italian Roast packets (or 3 Teaspoons of instant coffee)

¼ cup of heavy whipping cream

¼ cup of white sugar

1 and 1/8 teaspoon or up to 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract (by preference)

Mix together and chill in fridge while you make custard:

Custard Base:

1 cup of heavy whipping cream

¾ cup of white sugar

1/8 teaspoon of salt

6 egg yolks, whisked

2 cups of heavy cream (for after custard is made)

In a medium saucepan or medium-sized pot over medium/medium high heat, add sugar, salt and cream and cook and stir until sugar is melted and mixture is hot. Temper the yolks into mixture: [when cream mixture is hot, add ¼ to ½ of the mixture slowly to the yolks and whisk until eggs are warm], and then add egg yolk and cream mixture back into the pot and cook over medium/medium high heat while constantly stirring until thick or for about 3-5 minutes. Do not let mixture boil or sit unstirred—this will cook the eggs and separated mixture into dark scrambled eggs and gooey milk syrup! CONSTANTLY STIR AND DON’T LET BOIL/BUBBLE OVER!!!!!

Strain custard through a sieve into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap; pressing the plastic onto custard. This must be done to prevent a film from forming on top of the custard which will make the ice cream mixture snot-like. So completely press down onto and cover custard!

Chill the custard and the Base Flavor mixture in the refrigerator for two (2) hours.

After chilling time, mix the custard, Base Flavor mixture and 2 cups of heavy cream together until completely blended.

Churn in ice machine according to machine instructions.

Serve immediately for soft serve ice cream, or chill in the freezer 12-24 hours for harder ice cream.

      I love ice cream too. I also make most of my own food from scratch. I have looked on the internet for a decent homemade ice cream recipe many times and now I have found it.

      Thank you, will definitely be trying these out once I can get to the shops and buy the ingredients.

      Thanks for Sharing. Voted up and awesome

      The custard is used for the three flavors. Sorry about the confusion.

      I love homemade ice cream (and any other ice cream!). These flavors look wonderful; especially the chocolate and pistachio. Can you clarify - there are four recipes & one is custard, are there four separate recipes or does the custard get used in the others. Just want to made certain I don't mess things up when I try them! Voted up and awesome (I'm still waiting for the Yummy Button!).
