Tiramisu Ice Cream

A while ago you may of read our blog post on planning our friends birthday surprise BBQ, if you haven’t head on over here first 🙂 Foodspiration In a short clip on the Youtube video you see two flavours of ice cream.  One is milk chocolate ice cream and the other is this amazing spin on our favourite dessert, the tiramisu.


We were slightly worried how this would turn out, but oh boy we had no reason to be! This is basically a creamier and frozen version of the dessert and we couldn’t love it anymore. In our own personal opinion it’s a lot easier to make!


The flavours that always stand out to me, are the subtle mascarpone cheese, coffee infused Lady Fingers, and a dusting of cocoa powder.  Well this Tiramisu Ice Cream recreates all of those flavours perfectly.  If you did want to make this a little bit healthier, try using coconut milk and coconut cream instead!

  2. Meanwhile, whisk the egg yolks in a heatproof bowl until smooth.  Add the sugar and salt and whisk until fluffy.  Gradually and slowly, pour the hot milk into the egg mixture whilst whisking continuously to prevent the egg from scrambling.  Return the saucepan and place over a low heat, stirring frequently until the custard thinly coats the back of a wooden spoon.  Do not allow to boil.

  5. Put the sponge fingers on a plate and drizzle over the syrup.
  6. Using a spoon fold in the mascarpone into the cooled custard, then stir in the marsala. Pour the mixture into a ice cream maker and add the kahlua and churn according to instructions.
