Tips

  • Since the tonka bean Coumarin contains, should not be used too much. But as long as one Normal dosage, it should not be a problem. I take for this recipe approx. 2-3 Millimeter of one bean. It is very difficult to give a general indication of quantity because, in addition to your own taste, it depends on how much of the ice cream is eaten and who is eating it. Please be especially careful with children.
  • Is it a larger or very rigid shapethe wall should first be covered with Edible oil and only then insert the foil. Then the parfait can be overturned more easily.
  • If you have fruit with a cavity like RaspberriesThey should be cut in half beforehand or, in the case of frozen berries, crumbled so that no air holes form in the parfait.
  • As a topping for the parfait fits very well homemade nut brittle. I used chopped almonds.

Other Parfait recipesthat can be easily made in the freezer are for example Marzipan ice cream with amaretto or my vegan basil ice cream.

If you Tonka beans like, then try also my Passion fruit ice creamwhich gets a very special flavor component from the tonka bean.
