Orange Ice Cream

Included in the latest Gourmet Traveller magazine is a recipe for a Chocolate Tart served with a scoop of Orange Ice Cream on the side. It looks really delicious, but the recipe is a little too complicated. However, I have simplified it using the TM and the result is fantastic and so easy to prepare.

Home made ice cream is a cinch to make - and you don't need a fancy ice cream maker either. I like to use unhomogenised full-cream milk and free range eggs - if you use good-quality ingredients your ice cream will look and taste so much better. Serve this with the Chocolate Tart (recipe coming up next) or in a bowl on it's own. YUM

3 egg yolks
250g cream
280g milk
150g sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract (or vanilla bean paste)
pinch of salt
rind of 1 orange
2 tablespoons of orange marmalade

  1. Place all the ingredients into the TM (except for the orange rind and marmalade). Cook for 5-6 minutes/80 degrees/speed 4.
  2. Place the mixture into a stainless steel bowl and stir through the orange rind and let it cool.
  3. Place the bowl into a freezer for 5 hours, or until firm.
  4. Remove the ice cream from the freezer and place into the TM bowl. Mix for 20 seconds/speed 9, using the spatula to assist if necessary.
  5. Transfer the ice cream into a container (that has an airtight lid) and gently stir through the marmalade. 
  6. Return to the freezer to set.

Makes about 1 litre.

    1. It is a wee bit tasty (and kind of crazy to be making in this cold weather that we are having at the moment). The kids do love it though. xx

  2. Oh, this sounds delicious! I have ordered my Thermomix, and it's due to arrive tomorrow. I can't wait! I follow your other blog and found this one when you suggested looking for a biomedical doctor for my Hamish. Thank you :) Jen x

    1. Hi Jen - You'll find once you get the hang of it, you'll be using it all the time. Most recipes are very easy to adapt, and in fact are easier to make with the TM. I hope H is doing well. xx
