Delicious! I replaced the sugar with equal for cooking and its so delicious (and guilt free!)
I felt it was too sugary the first time I made it, so the second time I used 1/4 c. grade b maple syrup and added 2 ounces 60% dark chocolate the second time. That actually did the trick, and added to the texture. It did change the nutritional profile by about 20 cal extra per person. Oh, plus I used arrowroot starch instead of corn starch because I think it added to the mouthfeel of the final product - it's why a lot of non-dairy ice creams have it in their ingredients list at the store.
Gina Kelly...I haven't made this yet but from what I've read the use of a sugar substitute probably caused the "hardness" problem. I'm sure there may be a fix but I don't know what it is. You might check the Good Eats website as they do lots of food chemistry testing and likely have a suggestion or two.
I was very excited to find a gelato recipe without eggs or cream. I just purchased the Cusninart ICE-70 ice cream maker. I followed this recipe but substituted the sugar with STEVIA sugar powder (only 1/2 tsp because I read you have to use very little stevia sugar compared to regular sugar). I churned the gelato for 30 minutes (suggested time). It came out somewhat creamy but parts of it were very hard and stuck to the bottom of the freezer bowl. I scooped out what I could and put in a freezer tight container. I took this out and let it sit room temperature for about 20 minutes. This was still very hard. The taste was not very good either. If anyone has suggestions on how to resolve this hardness I would appreciate it? Also how to improve the taste?
Better than Ben and Jerrys I made this last night as a healthy-ish dessert for me and my boyfriend. He said it was the best chocolate ice cream that he ever had and I swear I would compare it to Ben and Jerry's despite the fact it is dairy free! I don't have an ice cream maker and wound up putting the bowl in the freezer and whipping in 30-45 minute increments. It took about four hours but it was so worth it! We have enough to last us the week! Pros: Easy, delicious, super chocolatey,
Rich Chocolate Goodness! It's hard to find a light dessert that fulfills my chocolate needs but this one does it...though admittedly it isn't THAT light calorie-wise. It's a nice middle ground option though :) Pros: Great flavor, texture Cons: If you don't like rich desserts this isn't for you
Fantastic!! I could not stop eating this!! I'm a vegan so it's very rare that I come across something that I can eat like this. The consistency was spot on, nice and creamy. The coconut milk gave the flavor some depth. 5 stars! Pros: creamy Cons: a tad bit too sweet
