Things you will need:
1 cup whole milk
¾ granulated sugar
2 cups heavy cream
1 vanilla bean
¼ teaspoon salt
60 grams of water-soluble unflavored CBD
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 large egg yolks
To start preparing this amazing ice cream, first you will need to mix in a saucepan 1 cup of heavy cream with milk, salt and sugar. Then cut the vanilla bean in half lengthwise and scrape out all the seeds, before adding it to the saucepan. Mix the contents well by stirring regularly on medium heat.
With the help of a thermometer, check and ensure that the contents of the saucepan are at 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Just before it begins to boil, remove the sauce from the heat. Let the contents steep for at least 20mins.
The next step is to whisk the egg yolks in a medium bowl. Gently pour the warm milk mixture into it and be sure to constantly whisk the mixture. Once the mixture is well blended, set it back on medium heat, while continuing to whisk with a spatula. The mixture will eventually thicken enough to coat the back of the spatula.
You will now need to remove the mixture from the heat and strain it through a fine strainer into a large bowl. Add to it the remaining cup of cream and whisk it gently to combine. Once the contents are well blended, next you need to add the magic ingredient. Add the water-soluble CBD and vanilla extract to the milk mixture and blend it well.
Now you need to place the bowl with the contents into another bowl filled with ice and let it chill. Cover the bowl with the milk mixture with cling film and set it overnight in a refrigerator. Next day you transfer the chilled contents into the ice cream machine to churn. Be sure to churn the ice cream gently, and then freeze it again overnight in a bowl.
As we all know Ice Cream comes in various flavors and you can add any flavor of your choice while preparation. You can use strawberries, mint, chocolate or any other flavor you fancy.
Serve in a bowl or have the tub to yourself, you are now ready to enjoy a delicious bowl of CBD infused vanilla ice cream!
