If you don't mind adding some honey, it will help the texture. It's an invert sugar so it lowers the freezing point -> easier to scoop + less crystallization. Alcohol has a similar effect. A tablespoon or so of vodka can help. You can... (more)

I modified it a bit to fit the ingredients I had on hand (and had no ice cream maker) but was still pretty good, tasted nice.

I just checked out the recipe as well. It calls for two whole vanilla beans or 4 "Tbsp". Now, normally in recipes it is written either "Tbs" for Tablespoon, or "tsp" for teaspoon. I think this is definitely a typo, because 4 Tbs = 1/4 C. I have... (more)

I have an old ice cream maker and was wondering if I could use it to make Paleo ice cream. Has anyone tried this? Presumably, it would consist largely of coconut products with fruit and veggies mixed in. Is it prohibitively expensive?

I guess it's because it does tend to contain a lot of sugar. It's also really easy to eat a lot of, I guess because of its texture/consistency and mouthfeel. The fact that it contains high quality cream doesn't change the fact that you're eating a... (more)

The mouth-feel of ice cream comes from the amount of air fluffed into it. Try using liquid nitrogen to make it more "airy."
