Creating the Ice Cream Base
Start by preparing the velvety ice cream base that will serve as the foundation for our flavors. Gather 34 fl oz (1000 ml) of whole milk, 2 1/8 cups (400 g) of sugar, 1/4 cup (30 g) of corn starch, and 34 fl oz (1000 ml) of heavy cream (35% fat content). In a large pot over medium heat, warm the whole milk until it reaches a gentle warmth. Add the sugar and stir until completely dissolved. In a separate bowl, dissolve the corn starch in a small amount of milk. Once the milk in the pot reaches a boil, carefully add the corn starch mixture and continue cooking for an additional 10 minutes, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens. Remove the pot from heat and transfer the milk mixture to a bowl. Allow it to cool for a moment before placing it in the freezer for 20 minutes. In another bowl, beat the heavy cream until it forms soft peaks. Gradually add the cooled milk mixture while continuing to beat. Cover the bowl with cling film and freeze it for 2 hours to achieve the perfect ice cream base consistency.
Delectable Strawberry Ice Cream Flavor
To infuse our ice cream with the delightful taste of strawberries, take one-third of the prepared ice cream base and place it in a bowl. Add 5.3 oz (150 g) of strawberry syrup to enhance the flavor. For a vibrant hue, incorporate a few drops of red pastry color. Lastly, add a touch of strawberry flavoring to intensify the strawberry essence. Mix all the ingredients until well combined. Transfer the mixture to a separate bowl and place it in the freezer for at least 8 hours, allowing the flavors to meld and the strawberry ice cream to solidify.
Creamy Banana Ice Cream Flavor
For a tropical twist, take another one-third of the ice cream base and place it in a bowl. Add a few drops of yellow pastry color and the desired amount of banana flavoring to achieve the perfect balance of sweetness. Mix the ingredients thoroughly to ensure a consistent flavor throughout the ice cream. Transfer the mixture to a separate bowl and freeze it for at least 8 hours, allowing the tantalizing banana flavor to develop and the ice cream to reach its optimal consistency.
Nutty Pistachio Ice Cream Flavor
Indulge in the rich and nutty notes of pistachio with our final ice cream flavor. Take the remaining one-third of the ice cream base and place it in a bowl. Add 1 1/8 cups (150 g) of finely grated pistachios to infuse the ice cream with a distinctive flavor. To achieve a visually appealing green color, incorporate a few drops of green pastry color. Mix well to evenly distribute the flavors and colors. For added texture, sprinkle in 2.8 oz (80 g) of raw pistachios and 0.7 oz (20 g) of chopped raw pistachios. Stir gently to combine. Transfer the pistachio ice cream mixture to a separate bowl, ensuring the pistachio pieces are evenly distributed, and freeze it for at least 8 hours to allow the flavors to meld and the ice cream to set.
