We choose the right ingredients

We don’t skimp on the fat: whole milk and full cream, with a minimum of 30% fat! You can whip the whipped cream and add an egg white to add air. As for sweeteners, we prefer honey or glucose syrup.

We opt for an ice cream maker or turbine

It is an investment that is worth it! After making the preparation, just pour it into the tank, let it run for 20 to 40 minutes, and you’re done! It can be kept in the freezer until its tasting.

We prefer yogurt

Are you missing milk or cream? Don’t panic, we use yogurt! For “frozen yogurt”, a real summer star, all you need is a blender, yogurt and sweetener (optional). It can be personalized with fresh and dried fruit, chocolate chips, muesli, citrus zest… For more creaminess, choose Greek yoghurt.

We bet on fruit

Do you know the “nice cream”? This frozen recipe is made from a single ingredient: frozen banana! Mixed, its texture is comparable to that of ice cream. It is available according to your desires: with pieces of chocolate, oilseed butters… As for frozen red fruits (strawberries, raspberries…), mixed with sugar and liquid cream, they are transformed into sorbet.

ice cream molds

Choose the right molds

For sticks, we favor silicone moulds, which are easy to unmold and clean, horizontally for one for a simple and hassle-free filling. Otherwise, keep empty yogurt pots or use ice cube molds or verrines.
