DESSERT RECIPE

Frozen Vanilla Cream

Frozen Vanilla Cream

Let’s go on with this smooth creamy dessert with a vanilla flavor. Not really an ice cream, nor a custard… It’s something in between, but I can tell you it’s delicious and refreshing! These individual desserts in small glass jars are perfect to end a light summer lunch on the patio. I hope you’ll enjoy the recipe.

Ingredients list for Frozen Vanilla Cream

For 4 jars:

  • 7 ounces (200g) heavy cream

Easy Vanilla Cream recipe

Cooking Instructions

1. Split the vanilla pod lengthwise and scrape the seeds.

2. Put the milk, cream, sugar, vanilla pod and seeds into a saucepan. Bring to a boil, and then remove from the heat quickly.
3. Take 3-4 tablespoons of the hot liquid and pour over the sifted cornstarch in a small bowl. Mix well to obtain a cream and pour into the hot milk after removing the vanilla pod. Stir constantly during this process.
4. Put back over a low heat and bring to a boil, continuing to stir carefully. Boil for 3-5 minutes until the cream is thickened.
5. Let cool, stirring occasionally, and cover with plastic wrap to avoid the formation of a small skin. Store in your freezer until ready to serve.
