Making ice cream with Lactaid?

I've been getting and enjoying the Lactaid ice cream but before I invest in an ice cream maker, is it possible to use Lactaid milk in home ice cream recipes? just curious -- their selection is just chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, cookies and cream and butter pecan. Adequate, but I crave other stuff too!

  1. No reason why not! I've used Lactaid for any recipe that calls for milk.

      I would just cut back on the sugar a bit since Lactaid has a sweet taste then regular milk. Also most ice cream recipes call for milk and heavy cream. With just lactaid you will end up with a different texture.
