Ice Cream, Love

Triple Vanilla Ice Cream Sundaes – Recipe!

Print Friendly

Who doesn’t love a good ice cream sundae, especially made with homemade vanilla ice cream?  I call my vanilla ice cream Triple Vanilla because I use the seeds inside the vanilla bean, the pod itself and a splash of vanilla extract.  The vanilla flavor is super intense and you can load your sundae with anything you desire.  In my case – waffle cups (homemade if possible), hot fudge sauce, slivered almonds and my bourbon pomegranate sour cherries!

It is so fun to have friends over and create these little vanilla gems, what could be better?  You can add chunks to your Triple Vanilla Ice Cream before it is done processing, to resemble chocolate chip ice cream or chocolate cookies to mimic, cookies and cream.  But, if you are a vanilla purest, leave it just the way it is – triple vanilla.

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups whole milk

1 1/2 cups heavy cream

5 large egg yolks

2 vanilla beans

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

3/4 cup sugar

pinch of salt

1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum

dark chocolate cookies, optional

hot fudge sauce, homemade or store bought

slivered almonds

waffle cups, homemade or store bought

bourbon pomegranate cherries, recipe on my blog

To Prepare:

1.  On the stove top in a medium saucepan, combine the milk and cream.  Split the vanilla beans in half and remove the seeds.  Add the seeds and pods to the milk and cream mixture.

2.  Add a splash of vanilla extract and turn the heat on to medium.  Heat the milk and cream mixture until simmering, about 4 minutes.  Stir occasionally and turn the heat down if cream begins to stick to the bottom.

5.  After the cream mixture is simmering, turn off the heat and let it steep for 7 minutes.  Remove the pods from the cream and discard.

6.  Turn the heat back on to low and heat for 1 minute.  Temper your cream — by very slowly adding a few tablespoons of hot cream to the eggs and whisking to warm.  Repeat this process twice more.

7.  Add all the egg mixture into the cream mixture and stir.  Continue to cook until the ice cream base is thickened, about 4 more minutes.  You should be able to draw a line on the back of your spoon or spatula.

12.  If you want to add cookies, wait until the ice cream is soft serve.

13.  Or if you are a purest and want to keep it Triple Vanilla, leave it alone.  Remove the ice cream from the processor and place it into ice cream containers.  Store in the freezer to setup at least 2 hours, if you want scoopable balls.
