Beat the heat this summer with our simple ice cream technique that’s sure to impress. Sous viding precisely controls the temperature of the ice cream base ensuring a creamy consistency and preventing accidental overheating and curdling of the custard. Our vanilla ice cream has a higher salt content for a balanced flavor that’s not too sweet and pairs perfectly with fresh fruit or classic toppings such as chocolate syrup and sprinkles.

Note: We recommend preparing the ice cream the day before you plan to enjoy it.
