  • Easy

All on-trend ice cream parlours have messed around with malted milk, you’ll know it as Horlicks. This recipe is really easy to make and is sure to be a new family favourite.



  • double cream 600ml pot
  • whole milk 300ml
  • egg yolks 6
  • caster sugar 100g
  • Horlicks 75g


  • Step 1

    Put the cream and milk in a pan then bring to a simmer. Whisk the egg yolks, sugar and Horlicks in a bowl then pour over the hot milk, whisking until everything is combined. Pour the mix back into a clean pan then cook over a low heat until the custard thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon. Strain through a sieve into a bowl, cover the surface with clingfilm to stop a skin forming and put in the fridge until chilled. Pour into an ice cream maker and churn until frozen.
