How to make fior di latte ice cream at home with an ice cream maker

Today the simple and quick recipe for homemade fiordilatte ice cream with the ice cream maker: creamy, Delicate and as good as that of the ice cream parlor. See how it's done and what consistency you'll get in this VIDEO RECIPE you can find on my YouTube channel.

Which ice cream maker to use to prepare fiordilatte ice cream

Making fiordilatte ice cream at home is really easy: You just need to have an ice cream maker. It doesn't matter what kind of ice cream maker it is, But to prepare fiordilatte ice cream you need. As you know, They basically exist 3 types of ice cream maker: The hand-cranked ice cream maker, with the bowl that must stay in the freezer and the movement manually operated by hand crank. The self-refrigerating electric ice cream maker, that cools itself and processes the ice cream by itself, consuming a lot of electricity. And the non-refrigerating electric ice cream maker, whose basket has a double bottom containing a coolant and which must be cooled in the freezer before using it. I have this type of ice cream maker: my Kenwood stand mixer also comes with a basket to make ice cream. I have a great time: The only limit is a quantity: It is better not to exceed one kilo of product, otherwise the processing is complicated.

The ingredients to prepare fiordilatte ice cream at home

The ingredients to prepare fiordilatte ice cream at home are very few: High-quality whole milk, liquid cream (the one to be assembled that you find in the refrigerated counter), sugar and vanilla. Non-vanillin, for charity. An excellent vanilla, Bourbon or Tahiti: You can use the berry whole and engraved, powder or liquid extract.

I recommend boiling the milk with the sugar and vanilla the day before making the ice cream and leave the mixture overnight in the fridge, so that it becomes icy. This will greatly reduce the processing time of the ice cream, and will make the scent and taste of vanilla more intense.

It takes 20 to 30 minutes to make an ice cream, depending on the quantity. Be patient and you'll get a perfect ice cream, Creamed, creamy, firm and completely smooth and free of ice crystals.

You can enjoy the homemade fiordilatte ice cream as it is or use your imagination. You can add pieces of dark chocolate to create a stracciatella-flavored ice cream, Garnish it with melted chocolate, strawberries or other fresh fruit. Or with del HOMEMADE SALTED CARAMEL.

Homemade fior di latte ice cream

Homemade fiordilatte ice cream is really very simple to prepare. Put in the milk, sugar , a pinch of salt and vanilla pods, powder or extract in a saucepan and heat until almost boiling. This will serve to dissolve the sugar perfectly and extract the scent and flavor from the vanilla.

Transfer the milk to another container, allow to cool, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or, better, all night. I suggest you do this simple operation the day before preparing the ice cream .

How much milk mixture, sugar and vanilla will be cold, Whip the cream with an electric whisk, as you can see in the VIDEO RECIPE. Then, Add the cold milk slowly, mixing it using the whisk at the lowest speed. You will get a practically liquid mixture with a little cream that emerges on the surface.

Pour the mixture into the ice cream maker and operate it according to the instructions of your type of ice cream maker. After 20-30 minutes, You will get a perfectly firm and creamed fiordilatte ice cream. Place your ice cream in a container, preferably made of aluminium, Cover with plastic wrap and store in the freezer. Enjoy your fiordilatte ice cream as it is or garnished with fresh fruit, Caramel, melted or dark chocolate. Use your imagination!


You can store the fiordilatte ice cream in the freezer for about a week. Always remember to keep it at room temperature for a few minutes before serving.
