Who has a sweet tooth? Mister Christian Grey of Fifty Shades of Grey, that’s who! And vanilla ice cream appears to be at the top of his list (and all over Ana – but we won’t talk about that in this post). Although I love me some vanilla ice cream (preferably in a bowl – but we won’t talk about that in this post), there’s something that I love even more: vanilla bean frozen custard! If you’re not familiar with this decadent treat, think silky, creamy, smooth… (but we won’t talk about that in this post – YES WE WILL!).
Frozen custard is divine! It really is the Queen of Frozen Treats. Like ice cream, the FDA dictates that frozen custard must contain at least 10% milkfat, but it is differentiated from ice cream because it must also contain at least 1.4% egg yolk solids by weight. It can be hardened like store-bought ice cream or remain similar to soft-serve. The taste? There is no comparison. It’s light and bursting with flavor.
Continuing our series Fifty Shades of Grey Inspired Recipes, below you’ll find one for Vanilla Bean Frozen Custard. Try it and let me know what you think. Feel free to toss in some flavoring and skip the vanilla bean if prefer another flavor.
