The Whole Scoop

This recipe is super simple. If you have a great churner, you don't even really need to infuse the vanilla and sugar into the cream. Give the ingredients a good blend and you will find you get a pretty similar result.

This eggless ice cream base is very clean tasting, if you use a great vanilla (need I stress, Heilala is my preference?) then you will enjoy it a lot just like this.

Officially it is called Philadelphia ice cream, and came about when the locals back in the day in Philly (clearly) got rid of the time consuming custard making for ice cream. This base is awesome with muted flavours, like vanilla, but like all the other base recipes that we are showing you in the course, it can be treated to an upgrade with just about anything. The texture once fully frozen is a lot harder than French Vanilla ice cream.

All throughout Philadelphia there are ice cream shops proudly selling this ice cream in all the flavours you can imagine, but it has also become known as New York Ice Cream, or as we have called it, American Style Ice Cream. It can be made entirely with the Thermomix. We have written that version HERE.
