Here are the top best Black licorice ice cream voted by users and compiled by us, invite you to learn together
Homemade licorice ice cream is the best!!! It is absolute perfection! Rich, thick, creamy Thermomix ice cream which tastes even better than a gourmet ice cream parlour.
There are some recipes that I would never attempt without the Thermomix. French style, custard-based ice cream is definitely not a recipe for the faint hearted but the Thermomix makes it manageable. The ability to make an ice cream base in the Thermomix was the feature which sold me on my first TM5.
I’m sure you’re wondering why ice cream making is so difficult. It’s actually not difficult to make if you can keep the mixture at the precise temperature required, and you stir the mixture constantly. That’s why the Thermomix excels at making ice cream!
There are a lot of different ice cream making techniques but I tend to really enjoy the rich French style custard-based ice-creams. This method is most suited to rich heavy flavours like chocolate, salted caramel, cookies and cream and this amazing licorice ice cream. The rich custard makes those flavours taste even more luxuriously decadent.
Licorice Ice Cream Tips
There are no short cuts in making ice cream. It’s all about technique and patience. Happily, we don’t have to do to much manual labour with the Thermomix on the job.
- Two TM bowls are really handy for any custard ice cream recipe. One bowl is used for the milk flavour base and the second to beat the egg yolks until pale and frothy.
- Egg yolk and sugar should be beaten until pale, thick and custard-like.
- When adding the flavoured milk mixture to the egg mixture it’s extremely important to go painfully slow at the start. Adding the hot milk too fast will result in “sweet licorice scrambled eggs.”
- Chilling the finished custard in the fridge prior to churning will allow the custard base to thicken even further giving it a better consistency when frozen.
- The best results are achieved by breaking up the ice crystals as they form which is what a commercial compressor ice cream machine does. If you don’t have an ice-cream machine you can still achieve good results using your Thermomix.
Thermomix Ice-cream Technique
- Once the ice-cream has frozen, remove the container from the freezer and chop the frozen ice cream into large cubes.
- Add half the ice cream cubes to the TM Bowl. Blend 6 sec/Speed 6 (use the spatula to agitate the mixture).
- Repeat if necessary. Once the ice-cream is smooth transfer it to an airtight container and refreeze.
- Add the other half of the ice cream to the TM bowl. Blend 6 sec/Speed 6 (use the spatula to agitate the mixture).
