What flavor is more reminiscent of childhood, more replete with memories, than that of the milky, chocolatey sweetness of Milo? Long after we’ve left the schoolroom and put aside the playground, our love for the taste of this delicious drink has crept into some of the more sophisticated concoctions that have been popping out of the country’s finest restaurants. From tortes to cocktails, gelato to the simple pleasure of ice candy, Milo is as versatile as any other kind of chocolate when it comes to being incorporated into recipes—no longer is it limited to the hot or cold cup of comfort you have during your breaktimes. This recipe makes use of the creamy sweetness of Milo in ice cream, and it’s perfect scooped on top of some coffee…or perhaps to top a glass of Milo itself to serve as a delicious companion to a dessert.
- 1 – 1 1/4 cup milo powder
- 1 cup whole milk
- 2 cups heavy cream (> 35% fat)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/8 tsp fine sea salt
- 5 large egg yolks
- 1 vanilla bean (cut lengthwise and scrape seeds)
- Prepare an ice bath in a large bowl with flat surface. Pour the heavy cream into a mixing bowl and place the bowl into the large bowl with ice bath.
- Combine milo powder, milk, sugar, salt and vanilla bean seeds in a pot and warm them up over medium heat until sugar has completely dissolved.
- In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks lightly. Then gently pour the milo mixture into the egg yolks in a steady stream, while whisking constantly.
- Transfer the mixture back into the pot. Return pot to low heat and gently cook (stir constantly) until mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
- Strain through a fine mesh sieve into the mixing bowl with heavy cream. Stir to mix well until the mixture cools to room temperature. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.
- Churn in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer instructions. Serve directly as soft serve from the ice cream maker or chill in freezer in an airtight container until needed. Read here on the best way to store ice cream.
- When serving, don’t forget to top ice-cream with milo powder.
