Thermomix Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe

Thermomix Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe

Talking about ice creams, are you a classic flavours lover? Then you cannot live without the Vanilla Ice Cream, really irreplaceable!

I must admit when I was a kid I did not like vanilla flavour, at all. All those small black dots looked strange to me. Now that I prepare this recipe with my Thermomix I changed my mind, and I think this ice cream is really good, especially if matched with something appropriate.

But what is vanilla, in reality? I discovered it is a plant, a Mexican orchid whose fruits are vanilla sticks. However, before they reach that sweet flavour we all know, they are subjected to a long process. You never stop learning, that is true! :-)

Vanilla is very much used in cooking, especially in cakes and biscuits. Only a few of them now do not contain vanilla sugar (or more commercial vanillin which is a synthetic product and I do not like it!)

This ice cream brings out the best of this sweet fragrance!

You may combine this recipe with every other ice cream recipe. I suggest some delicious fruit ice cream - peach or strawberry - or chocolate, hazelnut and rocher. Find your perfect combination!


- 2 Vanilla Pods
- 600 g Full-Fat Milk

How to prepare Thermomix Vanilla Ice Cream

Halve the vanilla pods lengthways and put them in the TM bowl with milk, whipping cream, sugar, egg yolks and salt. 8 Min. 90°C Speed 2.

At the end of cooking remove vanilla pods.

Pour the mixture in a mould. Cover with cling film.

Let it cool then freeze for at least 10 hours.

Move it to the fridge 15 Min. before serving. Cut it into pieces, put it in TM bowl and mix 15 Sec. Speed 9 then 30 Sec. Speed 6 stirring with spatula. Et voilà, ice cream is ready!

My Advice

You can use three egg yolks only if you prefer.
