Yuzu Choc Chip Ice Cream Inspired By Stracciatella

Using stracciatella gelato for inspiration I decided to combine my yuzu flavour base with roughly chopped chocolate. This yuzu choc chip ice cream flavour is so unique, and so good, and I hope you will try it.

I am having a run of ice cream recipes on the blog. But only because I had to test the recipe until I was 100% happy with it. First I made an orange curd ice cream and I was super happy with the flavour. But the ice cream base was a bit fatty. Not wanting to use the same flavours, I decided the next batch would be a chocolate and ginger gelato. This process was a disaster from start to finish. I forgot to turn the paddle on when I put it into the ice cream churner and so it froze in place. I only realized this once I had put the base into the machine so I had to pour it out. Not wanting to wait for the churner to unfreeze completely, be cleaned and then refrozen, I just waited for the mixture to melt.

And then attempted to churn my ice cream with a half-frozen churner. And that did not work! I just gave up, poured the mixture into a freezer container and put it in the freezer. An hour later I took it out of the freezer to mix, spilling some of it all over my wooden counter tops. This meant a clean up session late at night! Not a good evening at all, and the result was another great flavour, but this time with an icy texture. Using the same base recipe I made this yuzu choc chip ice cream. The base recipe is now perfect and finally I can say I am happy. What unusual ice cream flavours would you like to try?

  1. It’s ice cream recipes like your Yuzu Choc Chip Ice Cream that make me want to go out and get an ice cream maker. I’m thinking that Yuzu would contrast well with the chocolate.
