  • About

This ice cream is an Italian take on the classic of strawberries and cream. It tastes like a summer’s afternoon, no matter what time of the year you eat it...


  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 450 ml whole milk
  • 220 g


This ice cream uses the base bianca. Cut the vanilla pod in half and scrape out the seeds with the tip of a knife. Put the pod and seeds in a pan with the milk and sugar and heat gently until it reaches 85°C (just before it simmers). Fill a large bowl with ice, set a smaller one inside it to create an ice bath and then pour the sweet milk into this smaller bowl to cool. Discard the vanilla pod.
