Figs walnuts and honey gelato cup

Plain gelato Cup (italian home-made ice cream)

varied with caramelized figs , walnuts and honey.



Yesterday I tried this combination I had in mind for a while to delight some friends I invited for dinner.

The only precaution is to prepare caramelized figs and then let them cool for a moment, because otherwise gelato (ice cream) will  melt quickly!

The combination of warm caramel with cold gelato ( ice cream) is excellent, try it!


  • Plain  gelato (italian home-made ice cream) dose for about 5/6 people:

½ l. of milk
65 gr. of liquid cream
125 gr. of sugar (if  available  replace 50 gr. of sucrose with dextrose)
15 gr. of milk powder
3 gr. of stabilizer
Pinch of salt


Mix all dry ingredients together and start stirring.

Add all liquids and, after a good mixing, pour everything in a saucepan adding one vanilla pod (cut length wise with a paring knife) and finally bring the mix up to 85 ° C (pasteurization) with the help of a thermometer.

Allow the emulsion to cool down.

Turn the ice cream maker , add the emulsion and let stir for about 30/40 min.

Let stand in the freezer for about 1 hour .

  • 6 figs
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of acacia honey or wildflower
  • 8 walnut kernels


Place sugar and figs cut into wedges in a saucepan over medium heat to caramelize, then add honey and crushed walnut kernels.

Take a nice cup and  place some spoonfuls of caramelized figs and walnuts with honey at the bottom .

Add 3 scoops of gelato (ice cream) and garnish with the same sauce.

Enjoy it before it melts!

Stay tuned,
