White chocolate and rose water ice cream

No excuse is needed to take the Roll-Royce of ice cream machines, the Magimix Le Glacier Turbine, out for a spin. This time we set about pairing a classic white chocolate ice cream with Nielsen-Massey’s rose water and to our delight we found it to be a winner. One of our mums even thought it was the best ice cream she’d ever tasted (thanks, mum). Here’s how to make it.

Ingredients (serves 8):

4 egg yolks
250ml full cream milk
250ml double cream
75g caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
270g white chocolate
1 tsp rose water or to taste

We used the Magimix Le Glacier Turbine Ice Cream Maker


1. Chop up the white chocolate.

2. In a mixing bowl, mix together the egg yolks and sugar with a whisk.
3. Heat up your milk so that it is almost boiling.
4. Pour the milk into your yolk/sugar mixture and then transfer back to your saucepan on the stove.
5. Keep stirring so that it doesn’t get gloopy. Don’t let it boil. It should be a custard consistency.
6. Add the vanilla essence and the chocolate. Stir and then let it cool.
