Hilary asks: Do you have any tricks to lighten up your favorite ice cream?


Always try to buy and use the highest quality ingredients you can buy and afford. Things like pure vanilla extract, good quality chocolate, ripe in season fruit, etc., make a huge impact. It doesn't a huge amount of great quality ingredients to give you rich tasting batch of ice cream.

Coconut milk. I'd like to use it more, but not sure about the higher sat fats and calories. It can form fairly big crystals, but if you add toasted coconut and bittersweet chocolate chips, no one notices. But again, high sf & c.

Coconut milk, corn starch, soy whipping cream?

Do you put the buttermilk, condensed milk and gelatin all into the mixture or are you just referencing three separate ingredients that could be used but separately? Thank you!
