Fig, Vanilla Bean and Dark Chocolate Ice-cream

At our beautiful country cafe and chocolate shop, we serve nine different varieties of handmade ice-cream. As with our chocolate production, our ice-cream is made in small batches with quality ingredients. As always, we love to showcase local, unique and interesting ingredients.

Here’s the recipe to one of our most popular ice-cream varieties, which we first shared with ABC Radio Canberra as part of their local producer showcase!

The star of this ice-cream is the incredible fig jam by local producer Hundred Acres Produce. Jodie and her family, also part of the Canberra cool-climate wine region, grow the most beautiful figs and have a wonderful range of fig products.

We use single source dairy products from The Little Big Dairy, based in Dubbo and definitely recommend that you source the best quality milk and cream for this recipe. 

This is an easy to make ice-cream recipe that produces great results, every time. For best results, we only suggest attempting this recipe with an ice-cream churner as the churning is a vital step in achieving the correct texture. 



750mL heavy cream (35% fat)

1 cup caster sugar

350mL full cream milk

1 vanilla bean

1 jar Hundred Acres Produce Fig Jam

200g good quality dark chocolate, chopped finely



Using an electric mixer, whip the cream, vanilla bean scrapings and sugar on medium speed until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture has slightly thickened (it's important not to overmix at this point, as you don't want to incorporate too much air and volume at this stage!)

Turn the mixer to low speed and add the milk, mixing until just combined.

Pour into your ice-cream churner and churn for 30 minutes or until you have achieved your finished consistency. While churning:

  • Add the fig jam
  • Add the finely chopped dark chocolate


 Set until frozen, scoop and enjoy.

As with all of our ice-cream and chocolate, we make this variety with no added preservatives. Please consume within two weeks for best enjoyment - if you can wait that long, that is!
