ISO ice cream recipes

  • 9

So, now that I have my KA ice cream maker attachment, I've made some of the Cook's Illustrated vanilla (I figured that was a good start) and wil probably try some chocolate next; however, does anyone have any good ice cream recipe sources to suggest?

  1. Search for Carb Lovers ice cream reports on this board. She's made some delicious looking/sounding ice creams and gelatos!

    1. I just used our new ice cream maker tonight. It's a Cuisinart 1 1/2 quart. I made what I called an Almond Joy ice cream. Here it is:

      2/3 cup flaked coconut
      1/3 cup white sugar
      1/3 cup xylitol (you can eliminate this and use all sugar if you want; I was just trying to cut the sugar a wee bit)
      1 cup lite coconut milk
      1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
      1/2 teaspoon chocolate extract
      1 teaspoon almond extract
      1/3 (scant) cup cocoa powder
      2/3 cup skim milk
      1/3 cup half & half
      1 1/4 cups heavy cream

      Put all ingredients from coconut through cocoa powder into a blender and blend for about a minute. Pour in the milk and half & half and blend it for about 15 seconds. Add the cream, and only blend (on low) for 5 seconds.

      Pour it all into the ice cream container and process as your machine directs.

      I would have done toasted chopped almonds, too, but I was in a hurry. :)

      1. Oh, luv2bake! That's my next recipe. Thanks.

          yay! Let me know how you like it. We thought it was scrumptious.

        2. I highly recommend "Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream & Dessert Book" (Amazon has it for 9.99). It offers all sorts of ideas, talks about fat content (i.e. using whipping cream vs. half & half), adding alchol,fruits and what freezes well etc. Even if you don't use it for the recipes - it is an excellant guide.

          1. Thanks, I'll look for that.
