  • ice cream churner
  • Immersion or stick blender (optional)


  • 2 cups (500mls) thickened cream *or heavy cream or heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup (250mls) full fat milk (about 3.5%)
  • ¼ cup (60gms) tighly packed brown sugar *or light brown sugar
  • ¾ cup (90gms) Milo
  • 2 teaspoons (5gms) tapioca starch
  • ½ flat tablespon (15gms) glucose syrup *optional. You can substitute with the same amount of light corn syrup or dextrose powder.


  • Put the milk and cream into a small pot.
  • Measure the tapioca starch into a small bowl. Add about two tables spoons of the milk and cream mix and mix well to form a slurry.
  • Add sugar, milo and glucose syrup if using to the milk and cream and mix well.
  • Stir well, heat until just starting to bubble then down down low.
  • Add tapioca starch slurry and stir in. Heat for a further couple of minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool. If you are having trouble getting the milo to dissolve in properly you can blitz it very carefully with a stick/immersion blender.
  • Pour mix into a heat proof jug and cover. Chill in fridge for two to four hours until cold.
  • Put your ice cream container in the freezer to chill. If using a self churning ice cream machine put it on ten minutes before churning to chill, other wise take the churning bowl out of the freezer right before churning.
  • If the ice cream mix has settled a bit while chilling give it a good stir.
  • Churn the ice cream. It will be the consistency of soft serve when its done.
  • Transfer to chilled container, cover and freeze for four hours, or until firm.
  • To serve remove from freezer, scoop and enjoy! Fabulous on its own or with some extra milo sprinkled over the top. Delicious!


Milo is an Australian milk flavoring with chocolate, malt and vitamins.  It is popular in Australia, New Zealand, South America and many parts of Asia.
If you can't get milo you can substitute with drinking chocolate with some malted milk powder.
