Velvet Ice-Cream

Ingredients: Velvet Ice-Cream

  • 1.5 lb
    whole milk
  • 3.5 oz
    sugar
  • 0.5 oz
    Yogurt powder
  • 1.1 oz
    dextrose
  • 0.2 oz
    stabilizer
  • 6.3 oz
    Callebaut Velvet

Preparation: Velvet Ice-Cream

  1. Premix the stabilizer with part of the sugar. The sugar will help the incorporation of the stabilizer into the rest of the preparation later on.
  2. Heat the milk, the dextrose, the yogurt powder, and the sugar together.
  3. When the milk is at 40°C (104°F), add the stabilizer mixture into the saucepan and bring to a boil.
  4. Once boiling, pour on top of the white chocolate and blend well using the immersion blender.
  5. Transfer the ice-cream mixture into an ice-cream turbine. Note: some yogurt powder mixed with milk might curdle. To fix this, bring the mixture to a boil or blend with an immersion blender. It is good to use a yogurt powder that is acidic enough to balance the sweetness of the white chocolate. All types of ice cream turbines or a Pacojet will work.
  6. Once the ice-cream is ready, transfer it into a piping bag and fill the molds. When piping, put the tip well into the cavity in order to ensure that the mold will be completely filled and without any air bubbles.
  7. Place in the freezer until future use.

Velvet Mousse

Ingredients: Velvet Mousse

  • 4.4 oz
    whole milk
  • 0.9 oz
    Gelatin mass (1:5 gelatin powder 200 bloom + water)
  • 4.4 oz
    Callebaut Velvet
  • 8.8 oz
    Heavy cream 35% fat
  • 2.1 oz
    Passion fruit gel

Preparation: Velvet Mousse

  1. Whip the cream on high speed until the preparation holds soft peaks.
  2. Bring the milk to the boil.
  3. Once boiling, add the gelatin and mix until completely incorporated.
  4. Pour over the chocolate and mix well.
  5. Add the passion fruit gel and blend well using the immersion blender. The reaction between the lactose of the milk and the acidity of the gel will help adding texture to the ganache. The temperature of the ganache should be 28-30°C (82-86°F).
  6. Add the whipped cream in two different additions and mix until obtaining a smooth texture.
  7. Transfer into the piping bag, cut a small tip off to control the flow and fill the molds. When piping, put the tip well into the cavity in order to ensure that the mold will be completely filled and without any air bubbles.
  8. Remove the excess mousse with a palette knife.
  9. Place the molds facing upwards directly onto the vibration table to ensure that no air bubbles remain in the molds.
  10. Pour the remainder of the mousse onto a 5 mm (0.2”) frame and flatten the surface of the mousse using a scraper and a palette knife.
  11. Freeze both the molds and the frame until solid enough to be unmolded.
  12. Once solid, unmold the silicon mold.
  13. Using a spray gun filled with a non-crystallized mixture made of 50% cocoa butter and 50% white chocolate, immediately spray onto the mousse to create a velvet effect on its surface.
  14. Spray gold powder.
  15. Remove the frame using a knife and cut small discs with a 1cm (0.4”) piping tip.
  16. Place the discs back into the freezer and the mousse into the fridge until the final assembly.
