Tried this recipe and was really surprised that it turned out so well , the texture was similar to what I get from the commercial ice cream, be forewarned though, this has a pretty strong ‘milk’-ish flavour, but I guess one could replace the fresh milk with chocolate or strawberry flavoured milk to get some variety.

Ingredients A

  •  3 egg yolks
  • 60g castor sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 150g fresh milk


Ingredients B

  • 200g Whipping Cream


Method :

  1. Mix A until well combined. (Pix  showing egg yolks + sugar +vanilla essence and in the process of adding milk to the mixture)

2. Put the bowl containing mixture A in a pan filled with boiling water ( Double boil )  and stir for about 10 – 15 minutes until thicken . Remove from heat and leave to cool. Sift the mixture.


 3. Beat B until stiff ( until you terbalik (upside down)  the container also the mix will stay in the bowl).  Add A into B and stir well.

Pour into container and freeze overnight or until set. Mine set in ~ 10 hours


 I had ice cream + fresh pineapple for breakfast the next day..what a terrific way to start the day

    Wah Pegasuskl ….looks so simple to make and looks like vanilla ice-cream u get from the supermarket ….must ask my wife to try ….does it taste better than the magnolia/walls vanilla ice-cream??

    Oooi G&G, the texture is pretty good, taste wise, it has very strong milk-ish taste, i guess u can add dried fruits etc into it also guarr… the most expensive ingredients would be the whipping cream- get those packed in the paper carton ( which would be much cheaper) instead of those in steel canister.

    Hello pegasuskl,

    Thank you very much for the recipe. hehe. I would certainly try to make the ice cream with my wife and children but will put in lots of milo powder to avoid the milk-ish taste. One question though, how much of boiling water is to be used? Also, on separate note, any nice place to eat healthy vegetarian food minus all the oily and fried “flour” (in the likes of “duck”, “chicken” etc) items normally on their menu? haha

    Hi Cash, thanks for dropping by, tell me how your milo ice cream turn out ! as for the boiling water, you are suppose to place mixture A ( step 2 above) which is in a bowl ( use steel bowl), on the boiling water, i.e. ‘cook’ the ingredients on the boiling water and not add boiling water into the ingredients.

    As for vegetarian meal, you can try ‘Mama Sayang’- a Nyoya style vegetaraian shop located in Old Klang Road ( use the search function on this blog and search for ‘mama sayang’ for the review and details)

    Hi Pegasuskl,

    Well, we have tried making two versions during the weekend; milo and the baking chocolate mixtures. Both turns out well and great but most of us prefer the baking chocolate flavour as it taste less milk-ish. We also cut down on the sugar content to about 50 gm.

    One minor problem though, I notice that we need to thaw the ice-cream for about 15 minutes before we can scoop it up.(maybe it is because we did not whip the cream until it sticks to the bowl as recommended becoz it seems impossible).

    Overall, it is a great recipe! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe and your recommendation to visit Mama Sayang! Will certainly give it a try soon.

    Have great week ahead!

    Hey Cash, glad to hear that the ice cream turned out well. I am not sure why it takes so long to thaw ..err…?
    On the whipping cream, did u use an electric mixer ? if yes, should not be a problem to beat them until they become stiff lerr.
    Hope that u will enjoy your meal at Mama Sayang !
