  • 1/4 teaspoon saffron threads
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup vanilla sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla salt
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Over medium heat, bring milk to a low boil with saffron threads in it. Once it boils set it to simmer, cover and let it sit for 30 minutes.
  • Allow milk to cool off a bit. You can just transfer it to a bowl or stick in the fridge for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • In a mixer combine the saffron infused milk, vanilla sugar, and vanilla salt. Mix until sugar dissolves.
  • Add the heavy cream and vanilla and mix until well blended.
  • Cover this and stick in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours.
  • Now transfer this liquid to your frozen ice cream maker bowl, set it on the ice cream maker stand, and turn on for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • You can eat it right away or pop it in the freezer. Just remember to take it out 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
  • Serve with a smile!
