Homemade Ice Cream
0

7 posts in this topic

I have been experimenting with making homemade ice cream. First few times it tasted good but was to grainy and icy and only two of us would eat it. So on a quest to make a creamier product I used this recipe http://www.food.com/recipe/ice-cream-no-eggs-93725

Ice Cream (no Eggs)

Ingredients:Servings:

12 12 12Servings Size

1 (14 ounce) can eagle brand sweetened condensed milk (NOT evaporated milk)

2 tablespoons vanilla

2 cups half-and-half cream

2 cups whipping cream, unwhipped

Change Measurements: US | Metric

Directions:

1 In a large bowl combine ingredients, mix well.

2 Pour into ice cream freezer container.

3 Freeze according to manufacturer's directions.

4 Freeze leftovers.

5 FRUIT ICE CREAM:.

6 Reduce half-n-half to 1 cup.

7 Add 1 cup pureed or mashed fruit (bananas, peaches, strawberries, etc.) and a few drops of food coloring, if desired.

8 Proceed as above.

After some reading I modified the recipe a bit. I decreased the vanilla extract to 1 tablespoon and proceeded with the rest of the recipe as is. Then to get a more creamy, less grainy texture I added in the following to the icecream mix: 1 package unflavored gelatin dissolved in 1/2 cup warm water (I slowly added the gelatin as I was wisking to avoid big clumps) then add this mixture to 1 cup of hot milk (again as I was adding the gelatin mixture I added it slowly as I was wisking). I then added the whole mixture into the original icream mix while the mixer was running with the wisk attachment. Put it in my icream maker and I got lovely icecream. Even after it hardens it scoops out well after it sits a few minutes. From what I understand the gelatin helps the fats distribute more evenly and prevents large ice crystals from forming.

So the possibilities are endless with this recipe. The first time I didn't have half and half so I substituted 1 cup whole milk mixed with 1 tablespoon melted butter for each cup of the half and half. Tonight I made mint chocolate chip by replacing the vanilla in the recipe with 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract and 3/4 teaspoon mint extract and adding in 1 cup of mini chocolate chips. If I keep this up I'm gonna get fatter. :o:P:lol:

I wondered where you've been! :D

I was on vacation in PA the last two weeks of June and had no computer access at all. That wasn't a bad thing though. We all communed with the farm, river and nature. I asked my mom if I could have the ice cream maker she had when I was a teenager. She hardly used it so I brought it home. Been having too much fun experimenting and eating. :D

OMG!! I made homemade cookies and cream icecream and it was fantastic!! I had two happy kids and I was pretty excited to eat it since it has been probably over four years since I had any. I made a regular batch of vanilla and then folded crushed Kinni Too chocolate sandwich cookies in it. I really need to quit experimenting..my thighs are not going to like me later. :P:lol:

One of my favourites is browned butter vanilla bean ice cream with pralines. Gorgeous! And another is strawberry balsamic.

That is next on the list. Both boys want me to make it. I never liked it so it will be just for them.

    • puffiness in face
      The puffiness in my face went down a lot after I went gluten free. Old photos shock me sometimes now! Your doctor should be able to test you for food intolerance? Here in UK I did tests for wheat, nut, mustard etc. You can do a blood test and there's also skin prick tests I think, am sure others here would know more.  Good luck    
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      Here in the UK I can't eat Lay's owned Walkers crisps as even the ones without gluten ingredients can cause a reaction. I read it was something to do with their production processes. Looks like others have same problems too:  
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Don't apologise! Not needed here at least where people know exactly what you're going through. As Cyclinglady says, you're now in a grieving process for the former, carefree attitude to food you've now lost. You may find this helpful in understanding the psychological journey you're on: http://psychcentral.com/lib/the-5-stages-of-loss-and-grief/ It WILL get better. Eating cleanly is very good advice as you heal but you can then find the replacement snacks and treats that are safe to eat.  I now know which chocolate bars are ok, which brands of crisps (chips) are safe etc.  I don't drink now, but I did find there were some fantastic ciders that I could tolerate and you've always got wine! In fact one of the weirder discoveries post gluten was that my past (vicious) hangovers were far more about gluten reactions than the alcohol itself. A cider hangover is a breeze in comparison All the best!  
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      I ate some baked lays last night and felt very sick all night and haven't been feeling great all day today. Other than that I didn't eat anything different from what I normally eat and there was no risk of cross contamination with anything.. These were the only thing I had that was different. They're labeled gluten free so I figured it would be okay, but I started feeling sick pretty soon after eating them. I'm not sure if it's another ingredient in them or what (and i know it's not the soy).. Has anyone else had a reaction to lays potato chips?
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Welcome Ashley! Here are the current tests.  The DGP versions seem to work a bit better than the TTG in small children.  So, ask for the complete panel (and get it all in one stick....my 15 year still hates to get blood drawn ! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your doctors are wrong!  They must be reading old medical text books.  Not all kids or people have failure to thrive!  You can even be symptom free!. I was anemic and had no intestinal issues when I was diagnosed.  celiac disease affects everyone differently and that's probably why so many folks are not diagnosed. Your kids (parents, siblings too) should be tested every few years (sooner if symptoms develop) per all the leading celiac researchers/doctors if a first-degree relative has celiac disease (like you!)  celiac disease can develop at any age! Hope this helps!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
