Banana-Malt Ice Cream

If you love bananas and malt drinks then you should try this recipe at home, which can serve up to 4 people or 2 really drooly ones. Again, I used my Philips ice cream maker for this. Here's what you'll need:

200 g bananas
70 g castor sugar
2 tablespoons powdered malt (I use Horlicks)
1 egg yolk
5 1/3 fl. oz. full cream milk
1 3/4 fl. oz. cream

  1. Puree bananas together with malt in blender. Then store puree in fridge.
  2. Beat egg yolk with sugar and a bit of milk (about 50 cc) until mixture is light and frothy.
  3. Add in cream and beat the egg yolk mixture again until all is combined.
  4. Gently heat up the rest of the milk in a saucepan, stirring constantly. Do not boil!
  5. Slowly pour the hot milk into the egg yolk mixture and stir at the same time. Make sure the mixture is properly combined and the sugar is dissolved.
  6. Pour egg yolk mixture into saucepan and gently heat on a low flame for about 2 minutes. Stir constantly and do not allow to boil.
  7. Remove saucepan from heat and let cool. To speed this process, put saucepan in a shallow pan filled with ice cold water.
  8. Once saucepan has cooled down, put it in the fridge.
  9. Assemble your ice cream maker without the cooling container as per the instructions provided with your unit.
  10. Take your cold banana puree and egg yolk mixture out of the fridge.
  11. Mix your cold banana puree together with the egg yolk mixture until well combined. Then put the mix in something you can easily use for pouring.
  12. Remove your cooling container from the freezer and insert into your ice cream maker unit.
  13. Switch on your ice cream maker and slowly pour in your ice cream mix.
  14. Let your ice cream maker operate for 45 minutes and you will then have some really flavourful banana-malt ice cream.
