....Joke? You do not make icecream with eggs, I guess you could to add protein, heck I might try that next time. I make icecream and eat it daily. I make vegan and sugar free versions. Different every time with different flavors using extracts, nut butters, nut milks, and protein powders. I use them as a meal myself so my methods are quite odd as I strive to load them with healthy fats, protein, vitamins, and minerals.

But I started off with a very simple base recipe years ago I still recall, I was using 1 can coconut milk, 1/4-1/3 cup maple/agave/honey, and flavorings of choice. The goal of making a icecream is to make it rich with fats and sweet.  Depending on what your doing depends on how it goes. I used to make ones with lower sugar using fruit instead of sweetener like

pina colada using 1 can coconut milk, 1 20oz can crushed pineapple (non syrup one), 2tbsp maple syrup/agave/honey, pinch of stevia, and 1-2 tsp vanilla extract (sometimes a bit of rum) blend it fridge for 8 hours then blend again before loading into my icecream maker. Alternatively this one can be put in a spring form pan, ice pop mold, or a pie crust and frozen for 12hours then served might need to be defrosted a bit in this form.

Other forms like sherbet I would blend frozen ripe grapes, melon, etc into a pulp add 2-4tbsp of nut milk to 1 cup blended fruit, 1-2 tsp sweetener and sometimes added 1-2 tsp protein powder to help it set up.

Now days I do HUGE 6L batches with nut milk, coconut flour, coconut yogurt, nut butters, sugar free sweetener, pectin and agar agar gum for emulsifiers with extracts and when ready mix this up with protein powders and more extracts -_- I normally eat about 3-4 cups of this concoction for dinners

I am planning on doing catering soon using the coconut milk and maple blend and a commercial machine.

NOW if your looking for a sugar free, high protein, vegan icecream I might suggest https://winkfrozendesserts.com/collections/wink-frozen-desserts-pints

PM what exactly flavor you looking for, and what your restrictions/goals are I will see about getting you a recipe for icecream if you need it.

Yes.  some people make it with eggs.  They are usually not cooked, so most people don't make it that way.  

YOu can find lots of recipes on the internet.  Not sure what this has to do with Celiac?  I am moving this to the recipe/cooking section

And the key to making a custard base (which is what ice cream with eggs is), is to temper your eggs with the warm milk solution and wisk continually (with no heat) when you add the tempered eggs back to the milk base. Slowly heat, wisking continually, until your custard forms. Do any of this too quickly or hot and you have scrambled eggs in milk.  Gross.  The custard base must be cooled completely (best over night) before churning otherwise it will not freeze properly and you will have large ice crystals. 

But I now do what Ennis does. We can't have milk so I use a combination of coconut milk, cashew butter, honey, sometimes avocado, to make a great dairy free ice cream. Ice cream cakes are our new favorite dessert.

OMG I feel Like a idiot, custard icecream, been years since I made a good custard. Hmm >.< now I am thinking of homemade eggnog icecream, I even have egg nog extract to cheat on it lol. Feeneyja you should swing by and we can go icecream crazy one night making several batches lol. QUESTION, do you think this can be done with just egg whites? Perhaps add nutritional yeast for that nutty yolk flavor? My inability to process yolks limits me a tad but at the same time I like the idea and challenge.

I LOVE ice cream!  When I went gluten free last year, I was disappointed that I was so limited in my options - especially since mint chocolate chip ice cream is my favorite and it has been hard to find gluten free. 

You have several options- you can make ice cream and sorbet with a blender and a freezer or you can buy an ice cream maker.  

Check out this mason jar recipe: http://www.delish.com/cooking/recipe-ideas/recipes/a53547/mason-jar-ice-cream-recipe/

No special equipment needed.

Also, this....

http://www.food.com/recipe/instant-blender-strawberry-ice-cream-365634

So, you don't need special equipment to do this. I have also made strawberry banana ice cream in a blender and honey dew melon sorbet that way (surprisingly yummy!)

My husband bought me an ice cream maker for Christmas which helped.  If you have an ice cream maker, you can increase your options. 

My favorite so far is this Mint chocolate chip:

1 cup heavy cream

1 cup whole milk

1/2 cup sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp peppermint extract

pinch of salt

1/2 cup chocolate shavings or mini chocolate chips

Stir the milk, cream and sugar together until sugar starts to dissolve. Add the remaining ingredients and put in the ice cream maker.

We have made grapefruit sorbet, salted caramel custard, coconut chocolate chip, strawberry. chocolate chip, pecan praline, egg nog, vanilla, sugar free versions too. 

Good luck!  Sometimes I'm annoyed by making it myself and sometimes I like the option of making my own yummy options!

Ennis, Egg yolks are what make custard based ice creams. But you have me thinking. I make a frozen peanut butter pie where I make a Swiss butter cream frosting with added peanut butter. It tastes amazing. For my kids with lactose issues, butter isn't a problem (just fresh milks and cheeses), so I add butter to the whipped cooked egg whites then room temperature natural peanut butter. So I think that heating the honey and whites in a double boiler, then whipping and adding any solid fat would work. Then freeze (no need to churn because the whites and fat provide you with structure).  

For Father's Day I made a chocolate brownie (cashew butter base) in a spring form pan, scooped out the center of the brownie leaving just a shell, added the peanut butter filling described above and topped with reserved brownie bits, froze that, then added a chocolate avocado ice cream and topped with chopped homemade dark paleo chocolate chunks...It was terrific!

What industrial ice cream maker do you use?  I'm tired of making small batches of ice cream.

MK4800 I had it on a trial/rental for a bit trying to purchase one now. Things pretty good, and the cheapest on the market. If you order from the factory it cost $995 ($650+$345 s&H) I started a fund raiser from my bakery for it.   As for retail if you order on Amazon or Ebay your looking to pay $1100-1400 for it.    If your really interested I can give the sales rep your email and she can contact you about getting one. https://www.mkkchina.com/product/ice-cream-making-machine/

My plans when I get my own is to use it for catering, markets, and events. I found it on rental from a company out of Houston and tried it. Then looked into purchasing one.

Darn. That's a bit much for me (even though I do have a big family).  I guess I just need to keep going with the small batches.

They make special containers for you to freeze iceceam in. The stuff from a soft serve will stay scoop able in them for 24-48 hours, Becomes a tad harder after that. If you set the consistency to max and prep in a cold house with prefrozen containers and pull fill immediately it makes more of a hard ice cream that keeps good for about 72+ hours scoop able.  So you could go from making it daily to once every 2-3 days and still have some everyday.

You've opened up a great discussion here, peterfc.  Most illuminating.  

I remember when I lived in Oz back in the 1980s there were three frozen custard outlets around Sydney.  I think, from memory, they only sold about three flavours - vanilla (plain), strawberry and chocolate.  But the ice cream was absolutely delicious.  

I think ice cream made with a custard is a great way to enhance the nutritional value of the stuff - and possibly reduce the fat content to boot?  Brilliant.

This all makes me want to break out my ic maker and see if I can recall how to use it. Very inspirational!

I just opted out of that Mk-4800 found a cheaper more marketable version for the markets. Keeping it under wraps til we get it done. PS you and find fully automated 1.5-2liter hard serve ice cream machines on ebay in the $200 range that do not require freezing a bowel or ice. There are smaller 1 liter options that require you to freeze a bowel to make it for under $100 even soft serve versions, hell saw with with syrups included for $45

That reminds me of the time I was in rural California and someone asked me if I was German :D 

They're speaking the beautiful South Western Ireland version of English. If you ever get the chance you should go there. It's one of the most beautiful parts of the world and the people are lovely. Albeit they maintain a sadistic pleasure in spinning tall tales to confuse hapless English visitors to their pubs... :lol:

I'd love to visit! I'm half Irish and half English and would so adore to see Ireland. I loved England when I visited a million years ago. People were so kind.
