Sharing is caring!

Skinnymixer’s Classic Vanilla Ice Cream features in the Sweets section of the cookbook The Healthy Mix Dinners 2.

Recipe is perfect to create any combination of ice-cream flavours you like in your Thermomix and ice-cream machine… it is especially delicious with the Roasted Balsamic Strawberries from SkinnyEntertaining mixed in!

I recently asked the Skinnymixer’s Facebook community if they would like me to blog a simple base ice-cream recipe that can be used to add any flavours you like in. The overwhelming answer was YES PLEASE! 

A few years ago I got the Breville Smart Scoop Ice Cream Machine and fell in love with making my own low sugar ice-creams for my kids plus dairy-free versions for me! 

Please feel free to mix in fruits or other toppings when churning/mixing the ice-cream. Keep in mind that adding too much fruit will add water content to the mix and make it less creamy.

If you are looking for a special flavour, I already have a few ice-cream & gelato recipes published:

Thank you Betty Wong for saving the day and photographing the Ice Cream for this recipe while I recover from surgery xx

Betty’s Tip: I made a Baileys & Choc Almond version after the plain vanilla one for the photo. Add the Baileys and crushed choc almonds towards the end of churning to avoid it going too icy.

  • 120 g sugar of choice - If you prefer it a bit sweeter, increase to 150 g. We recommend caster sugar, however this can be done with coconut sugar, raw sugar, or xylitol for a low carb variation. Light coloured sugar will produce the best colour.
  • 600 g pure or pouring cream - (without gelatine)
  • 230 g milk
  • 6 egg yolks - from XL eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract


  • If using granulated sugar, add to dry mixer bowl. Mill for 30 sec/speed 9/MC on. Scrape mixer bowl down.
  • Add remaining ingredients to mixer bowl. Cook for 9 min/90°C/speed 3/MC on.

Ice-cream machine method

  • At this stage, you can either put it in a container, cover directly on the surface of the custard with cling wrap and refrigerate for a few hours before churning your mixture in an ice-cream maker OR follow below Thermomix method.

Thermomix method (no ice-cream machine to churn mix)

  • Freeze in standard ice cube trays. Once frozen, blend for 1 min/speed 9/MC on or until combined—using spatula to help combine.
  • Tip: When it comes to blending/whipping time, you may find your mix melting faster if it is a hot day. Watch your mix and stop it early if needed and return it to the freezer.


Dairy Free/Paleo: Replace cream and milk with 800 g Ayam light coconut milk.
Egg Free: Omit eggs and follow the thermomix cooker method only.
Super Skinny: Use low-fat cream and milk.
Store ice cream in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 14 days. The ice cream will become very firm after freezing overnight, so remove from the freezer and allow to stand at room temp. for 5-10 min before serving.
