Wasabi Ice Cream (Wasabi Aisu)
- 2 Egg yolks
- 1 tbsp Water
- 110g (4oz) Superfine sugar
- 2 tbsp Grated fresh wasabi or 1½ tbsp Wasabi paste (or add less )
- ½ tsp Vanilla extract
- 300ml (10 fl oz) Whipping cream, chilled until very cold
- 100ml Cold fresh milk (to be added for using ice cream maker only)
- ⅛ tsp Salt
- Prepare a bain-marie, which can be a stockpot filled with water until one-third full and set over low heat until water is hot but barely simmering.
- Combine egg yolks, water and sugar in a metal mixing bowl, then set on top of bain-marie. Beat mixture constantly with a whisk for 7-9 minutes or until mixture is thick, foamy and hot to the touch. Regularly scrape bowl's sides and bottom so every bit of the mixture is evenly beaten.
- Remove bowl from bain-marie and continue beating for 2 minutes more or until mixture has cooled almost to room temperature.
- Beat in wasabi and vanilla, then cover with pastic wrap and refrigerate for 10 minutes or until slightly cold.
- Combine whipping cream and salt in a clean bowl and whip until thick and floppy but not fully stiff. Fold cream into wasabi mixture, a third at a time, folding just until incorporated after each additon.
- Scrape mixture into a metal cake tin or plastic container, cover and freeze for at least 4 hours. Stir with a whisk after 1 hour, and every 30 minutes after that, to break up large ice crystals.
- ** If you're using an ice cream maker, skip steps (5) & (6), add whipping cream and milk into the wasabi mixture and stir well to combine and let stand in the fridge for two hours or until the mixture is very cold.
- Pour the chilled mixture into ice cream maker and process according to the manufacturer's instructions. Churn for about 30-40 minutes till soft ice cream is formed.
- Spoon the soft ice cream into a container and freeze for 3-4 hours before serving.

Hope you enjoy this cool and ‘hot’ ice cream as much as I do ;DD
What a creative way to enjoy ice cream. I love the way you plated it. :o) super cute
Wow that is daring, my friend. But I think with my love of all things spicy I'd enjoy this very much.
Never had wasabi in dessert before! Definitely intriguing and very creative 🙂
wow i would love to try this… 😀
Oooh, I love this! I had this once in a restaurant in Paris and wanted to make it at home. When I surfed the net for a recipe, I found a funny video with someone just freezing directly a vat of wasabi then serving to their enemies :-)This recipe looks brilliant and must try your version. Lovely photo, too!
I enjoyed looking at it but don't know if I am going to like it:P the wasabi went up to my nose once and that had stopped me from trying to take wasabi in large doses since! I am quite wary of wasabi in everything lol!
Such a cool ice cream flavour! So special!
I can see lots of challenges and adventure eating this creamy yummy ice cream. This is new to me.
Annocoo, this is the most unusual thing that I have aver heard, and now I am as well wondering how it would taste like hahaha..Looks amazing, as any vanilla ice cream would, and I lovee Wasabi..I am totally confused, I am thinking of the taste..:))))Thank you for sharing, your presentation is always beautiful as well as your pictures!
