Mix on medium speed then lower the blender to the lowest speed and keep it running to create a vortex.

4Blend

Slowly pour dry ingredients into running blender.

Turn the blender to the highest speed for 10 seconds, then shut it off.

5Reduce

Add mixture and vanilla bean pod to saucepan over medium-low heat and bring up to 170°F / 77°C and hold it there to denature the whey protein, hydrate the gums, and reduce the mixture.

Once the mixture coats the back of a spoon, remove from heat and transfer to a sealable heat-resistant container.

6Chill

Place in a refrigerator to allow the flavors to develop fully and cool down to 40°F / 10°C - approximately 4 hours.

7Churn

Remove vanilla pod from container and discard.

Transfer mixture to a pre-chilled ice cream maker and run the ice cream maker until the ice cream is fully thickened.

8Freeze

Transfer ice cream into a sealable container and freeze for at least 4 hours (ideally overnight) before serving.
