Homemade Ice Cream

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.

    • I am trying to find out if going gluten-free can cause low blood sugar. I felt so much better when going gluten-free, but now I feel weak, shaky, tired
    • Gaerty,  thank you for sharing this with me! You want to know something crazy? The night before you sent this I was googling "vitamin deficiencies linked to splinter hemorrhages" and an article came up about vitamin C deficiency. I can't remember the last time I took vitamin C or drank orange juice or consumed anything that has vitamin C on a regular basis. It's crazy that you responded to this post when you did. My splinter hemorrhage is razor thin and looks like it could be shrinking but it's hard to tell. Also it's not growing out of the nail bed. It stated more in the middle of my right thumb nail. I don't take a multivitamin mainly because I can't find one that doesn't trigger my anxiety. Trying to find a good one that doesn't have energy boosters in it like green tea and extra B vitamins (all my B vitamin levels are great). I haven't been tested for low C vitamin levels but I might have to now. I was tested for some of the base ones that most celiacs have issues with, folate, magnesium, B's, E's, and a couple others and all of them came back good with the exception of my vitamin D3 which in November 2016 was 16 and we tested it again in February, it moved up to 26. Still low but moving up. My liver numbers in October 2016 were bad but by February 2017 they were perfect. I had skin rashes, most of those have cleared up over the past 5 to 6 months, by about 85%, since I was diagnosed. This splinter hemorrhage came up about 7 to 8 weeks ago. Like I said it appears to be growing out but I'm still going to get it looked at.  Let me know what your doc says about the vitamin C levels. Also what multivitamin do you take?  Ps: I bought some clementines yesterday.  Thanks for responding!  Spencer 
    • Maybe try a rice based milk, I find the coconut flavoured ones really good with cereal.  
    • I guess they've never felt the political pressure the mainstream cereal producers were under in the age of rickets and pellagra? Plus there's not such a competitive market and its a cost manufacturers would sooner do without if they can, although if Udi's or Genius did start perhaps they'd get more business. I think I'll start eating flax seed again, that was good for fibre I think. I take a vitamin supplement also of course. 
    • Good for you! One suggestion, if you run into another reaction like your Endo, try and ask a question which puts the burden of proof on them, ie: 'Given the positive blood test, on what clinical basis are you excluding celiac?' At least it forces them to be more precise and perhaps exposes any flaws in their reasoning. Although if you reach that stage with a doctor it's probably worth looking for another... If I were a cynic I'd say your Endo had already metaphorically left the building when they were analysing your tests.Your primary seems more on the ball though Best of luck! If and when you go gluten free come back here and there will be plenty of support for you.
