In the tall glass of a blender we put the milk, the yolks, the sugar, the cornstarch and we will scrape the inside of the vanilla pod. We beat for a few seconds with the mixer until a homogeneous mixture is achieved. If you do not have a mixer, this can be done by hand with some rods.
Strain the mixture through a strainer for a glass bowl or a microwave-safe material, and cook in this order: 3 minutes at 800 W, stir, 2 minutes at 800 W, stir, 1 minute at 800 W, stir.
