Fruit Mince

  • 30 g sultanas
  • 30 g dried apple
  • 30 g dried cranberries
  • 30 g dried apricots
  • 150 g water
  • 50 g orange juice
  • 2 tsp orange zest
  • 20 g spiced rum
  • 20 g brandy
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder


  • 50 g sugar of choice we recommend raw sugar, increase to 100 g for sweeter
  • 200 g pure cream pouring cream
  • 200 g milk
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


Fruit Mince Method

  • Add dried fruit to mixer bowl. Chop for 5 sec/speed 6/MC on. Scrape bowl down.
  • Add remaining fruit mince ingredients and cook for 20 min/100°C/speed 1/MC off. Allow to cool completely.

Gelato Method

  • If using granulated sugar, add to dry bowl. Mill for 30 sec/speed 7/MC on. Scrape mixer bowl down.
  • Add remaining ingredients [except fruit mince] to mixer bowl. Cook for 7 min/70°C or 160°F/speed 3/MC on.
  • At this stage, you can either churn your mixture in an ice-cream maker and add fruit mince mixture at the end of churning time or freeze in standard ice cube trays. Once frozen, blend for 1 min/speed 9/MC on or until combined—using spatula to help combine. Insert butterfly and whip for 5–10 sec/speed 4/MC on with the fruit mince mixture or until smooth. Return to the freezer if required.


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. We recommend a light coloured sugar for the best gelato colour.
Alcohol Free: Replace alcohol with extra orange juice.
Dairy Free/Paleo: Replace cream and milk with 400 g or 14.1 oz coconut milk.
Egg Free: Omit eggs and follow the thermal cooker method only.
Super Skinny: Use low-fat cream and milk.
