Thermomix Playdough



  • 320g water (boiling hot from jug)
  • 100g cooking salt
  • 1 tablespoon cream of tartar
  • 280g plain flour
  • 15g coconut oil
  • Food colouring to suit
  • (Depending on the brands of ingredients used you may need to add more flour)


  1. Put Salt in TM bowl and mill Speed 9, 3 seconds. Depending on the brand of salt you use you may need a little longer – you want it to look like a fine powder.
  2. Put cream of tartar in and then add water. Heat for 3 minutes at 60 degrees on Speed 3.
  3. Once finished, look to make sure that all your salt has been dissolved, give a little stir with the spatula and heat for a further 2 minutes at 60 degrees on Speed 3.
  4. Add flour and mix for 20 – 40 seconds or until well combined on Speed 3.
  5. Add coconut oil, set dial to closed lid. Interval Speed 1 – 2 minutes – you are looking for small pebble like consistency.
  6. I then like to add food colouring in a separate bowl and knead together as I find if I knead in the Thermomix it dries out too quickly – that being said wear some disposable gloves if you don’t want rainbow hands!

Suggestion: Once kneaded to the colour consistency you want, you can wrap the dough in baking paper and then pop it in a zip lock bag until you find some suitable pots to put them in.
