      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Add into the mixing bowl butter, yolk, zest, glucose, lemon juice, salt and only 100g of sugar mix 20sec/sp4 mc on

    Scrape down the sides, lid and mc on 5mins/80º/ps3

    Pour the hot liquid through a strainer and into a 2nd clean TM bowl, or into a sepatate bowl discarding any lumps that's collected. Wash and dry mixing bowl if not using a second TM bowl

    Add hot liquid and 100g sugar into TM bowl and mix 20sec/sp2 mc on, scrape down the sides and mix 1min/sp2
    Add cream and milk mix 20sec/sp4

    Freeze lemon curd into a shallow container (the lemon curd should be only about 2cm high, this will help for the next step)
    freeze for 6 to 8 hours

    Churning your ice cream

    Cut your lemon curd into 2-3cm pieces and add into the TM bowl,
    churn for 1min/sp6 mc on (well, I do peek though the hole, it's very exciting)
    Repeat if needed, making sure all of the ice cream has been completely churned (blended)
    Pour ice cream into a ice cream tub and freeze for minimum of 4 hours.

    This ice cream is perfect on waffles, pancakes or just straight out of the tub!

    ***NOTE: If you found it too lemony, reduce the zest by half and only add 100g of lemon juice.

Mixshop has two great ice cream container.
I highly recommend

'Glide-A-Scoop' insulated ice cream tub. These slender containers each have a 1.4L capacity and features a non-slip base which steadies the tub, guiding the perfect scoop.

'Ice cream pots' each hold one litre of ice cream. Made from quality freezer-safe and food-safe BPA-free polypropylene, with a non-stick smooth interior, they’re super strong and durable for reusing again and again. And dishwasher safe for easy cleaning too.

    MMM... refreshingly tart, sweet and creamy lemon curd ice cream. This was prefect for my morning pancakes. I'm glad I didn't need an ice cream maker and I could just use my Thermo. GREAT RECIPE.
