The arrival of spring is the announcement of good weather, and with it, refreshing meals are desired. What more refreshing than an ice cream? If the ice cream is also homemade, it will usually be healthier and more appetizing. That is why Miguel, author of Green Peppers , presents us today with a recipe that you will surely love: vanilla ice cream. He prepares it with the help of the Kitchen Aid and its ice cream accessory , which as you know makes the process very simple.

A few days ago I told you about my experience with Kitchen Aid . If you read the article, you will know that I am totally satisfied with this machine .

The last accessory that I have acquired is the ice cream maker (the Kitchenaid ice cream accessory ), and the truth is that I am loving it. I have used it to prepare some healthy and refreshing fruit slushies and also this vanilla ice cream that has nothing to envy to the commercial ones. Also, by preparing our own ice creams, we know exactly what we are eating. No additives or preservatives and we can also control the amount of sugar we use... So there are no excuses for not daring to prepare homemade ice cream!

I recommend you prepare the homemade ice cream in small quantities, since if we keep it for a long time in the freezer, it will crystallize and its texture will not be as appetizing.


320g whole milk

1 vanilla pod

130g sugar

4 yolks

1 pinch of salt

400 ml cream 35% mg


1. In a saucepan we put the milk. Open the vanilla pod and scrape out the seeds with a knife. We incorporate them into the milk together with the pod.

2. We bring the milk to a boil and remove it from the heat. Let infuse 30 minutes.

3. In a bowl, mix the yolks, sugar and salt.

4. Remove the vanilla pod from the milk and add it to the bowl where we have mixed the yolks.

5. Return everything to the saucepan and heat over low heat, stirring with a silicone spatula until the mixture reaches 80º. Be careful not to boil or it will cut you.

6. Remove from the heat and add the cream. Let cool and store in the fridge tightly covered until the next day.

7. Put the Kitchen Aid ice cream maker in the freezer. Remember that it must be cooled for at least 15 hours before using it.

8. The next day, mount the ice cream maker in the KA and add the mixture to prepare your ice cream. Let butter on low speed for about 15 to 20 minutes. You will see how the ice cream is acquiring an absolutely wonderful creamy texture.

9. Pour the ice cream into a container and store it in the freezer for 1-2 hours. In this way, it will end up getting the right texture.
