  • 500 ml Soy milk I used Bon soy milk
  • 250 ml Double cream
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 150 g caster sugar
  • 2 tbs Black sesame paste I used Kawari brand


  • Bring the soy milk and cream to a simmer over low heat in a sauce pan.
  • Turn the heat off and set aside.
  • Whisk 5 egg yolks and sugar in a bowl until the colour of the mixture becomes pale and fluffy.
  • Add the black sesame paste to the sugar and yolk mixture and mix well.
  • Gradually pour the warm milk mixture into the egg mixture and keep whisking until smooth.
  • Strain the mixture into a clean sauce pan and place over low heat for 5 minutes, continuously stirring.
  • Leave it in the fridge to chill.
  • Pour the black sesame mixture into an ice cream maker (or you can place it in the freezer and mix it every 2-3 hours).
  • Run the ice cream maker for about 20 minutes, and once the mixture has become thicker, pour it into a container and freeze it until set.


Cooking time does not include chilling ice cream time in the freezer.
Prep time is leaving the icecream makeing bowl in the freezer overnight. 
I used soy milk but it can be replaced by normal milk.
