Frozen vanilla custard is a thing of wonder. It’s the creamy goodness of custard and the cold frozeny goodness of ice cream.
It’s so easy to make and your flavoring options are endless. If you can come up with a flavor idea, you can make it a reality. Frozen vanilla custard is a nice jumping off point, simply because who doesn’t like vanilla? A monster, that’s who. I apologize if you’re not a vanilla fan, you’re not a monster, you’re very pretty, witty, and bright.
There’s certain recipes that I struggle to write about and it’s not because they’re dull or bad, but rather it’s a bit of a mic drop. All I want to say is, this is amazing, try it now versus trying to sell you on the prospect. Frozen custard is significantly creamier and denser than traditional ice cream. It’s a lot more like Turkish or Middle Eastern ice cream, maybe even a gelato, in it’s consistency. Definitely the opposite end of the spectrum from sorbet. I love putting edible flowers, nuts, or even a little granola on it.
Like ice cream and custard, this will melt quickly so plan for it if you’re going to serve it at a picnic or party.
