Preparation time: 30 minutes.
For those seeking convenience without compromising on the authentic taste of Italian ice cream, we recommend TooA mixes. Made with 100% natural ingredients, our mixes come in a variety of flavors, from classic to fruity. Simply select your desired flavor, add it in the basket, and let it sit for 20-30 minutes. Customize your treat with our assortment of toppings, including Italian hazelnut cream, candied cherries, Sicilian pistachio granules, and more.

Preparation time: 7-8 hours.
1.Choose the Right Ingredients: The quality of the ingredients is essential to obtain delicious ice cream. Always use fresh, high-quality ingredients. Opt for whole milk, fresh cream, fresh eggs and seasonal fruit for best results.
2. Prepare the Ice Cream Base: The ice cream base, also called "custard", is the heart of the recipe. Heat the milk and cream in a saucepan over medium heat and gradually add the sugar. In another bowl, lightly beat the eggs and slowly add them to the milk and sugar mixture, stirring constantly. Cook over low heat until the mixture thickens slightly. Make sure not to boil the ice cream base.
3. Add Extra Flavors and Ingredients: Once the ice cream base has cooled, you can add flavors such as vanilla extracts, melted chocolate, fresh fruit or dried fruit. Make sure the added ingredients are at room temperature and well mixed into the ice cream base.
4. Cool the Mixture: Before pouring the mixture into the ice cream maker, make sure it is completely cooled. You can place it in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or even overnight. A cold mixture helps achieve a creamy texture during the freezing process.
5. Use the Ice Cream Maker: Pour the cold mixture into the ice cream maker and start the freezing process according to the manufacturer's instructions. Typically, it will take about 20 minutes to get well-frozen and creamy ice cream.
6. Store Ice Cream: Once the ice cream has reached the desired consistency, transfer it to an airtight container and place it in the freezer for at least 2 hours to harden further.
7. Serve and Enjoy: Once the ice cream is completely frozen, serve desired portions and enjoy your homemade ice cream! You can add toppings like chocolate chips, fresh fruit or caramel sauce for an extra pop of flavor.

By following these simple steps, you can make delicious, creamy ice cream right in the comfort of your kitchen.
