Hazelnut gelato

Hazelnut gelato (home-made italian ice cream).


Welcome back,

hazelnut is by far my favorite gelato flavor.

I like it so much that it sends me almost into a trance and I can not exactly explain why.

In this  recipe I use the “Piemontese” hazelnut paste, i.e. the type “Tonda Gentile delle Langhe”, that is the one used to make the famous “Gianduiotti” chocolate.


 ½ l. milk
65 gr. of cream
125 gr. sugar (if available, replace 50 gr. of sugar with dextrose)
15 gr. of milk powder
3 gr. of stabilizer
Pinch of salt
2 tablespoons hazelnut paste
10 hazelnuts whole or in pieces


Mix all dry ingredients together, then add milk and cream and continue  mixing well.

Pour everything in a saucepan  and bring the mix up to 85 ° C  (pasteurization) with the help of a thermometer.

Allow the emulsion to cool down  then add the hazelnut paste  stirring constantly.

Stir for about 30/40 min, at this point add the hazelnuts and let the ice cream maker machine stir for a few more minutes .

Let stand in the freezer for about 1 hour .

Enjoy your gelato!
