  • Yield: 8 1x


  • 2 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 4 egg yolks (brought to room temperature)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Nutella


  1. Using a fork, whisk together egg yolks and sugar in a medium-sized bowl until the volume doubles (becomes frothy) and the color becomes a light yellow. Set aside.
  2. Add the milk and cream to a medium saucepan on low-to-medium heat. Blend the milk and cream by slowly mixing using a wooden spoon or whisk until a foam forms around the edges.
  3. Next, add the egg and sugar mixture to the saucepan with milk and cream. Continually stir until well blended and the mixture coats the back of a wooden spoon. Add the Nutella. Lick your spoon.
  4. Pour the mixture through a sieve or fine strainer into a bowl. This will remove any solid pieces of egg and create a more smooth even texture. Cover and chill the gelato mixture for a minimum of four hours.
  5. Finally, add the gelato mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Serve straight from the ice cream maker or spoon into a container, cover and freeze.┬áMakes 1 pint.
