Making ice cream at home allows for healthier options, such as using natural sweeteners, fresh fruits, and even dairy-free alternatives.
Ensure all ingredients are well-chilled before use. This helps in achieving a smooth and creamy texture.
The freeze bowl should be completely frozen, ideally for 24 hours, before making ice cream.
Getting the right balance of liquids and solids is crucial for the perfect texture. Too much liquid can make the ice cream too hard, while too many solids can make it difficult to freeze properly.
Experiment with seasonal fruits like strawberries, mangoes, or peaches for a fresh and tangy twist.
Get adventurous with flavors like lavender-honey, matcha-green tea, or salted caramel-pretzel.
Pair your homemade ice cream with complementary items like fresh fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, or sauces.
Store leftover ice cream in an airtight container in the freezer. To prevent ice crystals, place a piece of wax paper directly on the surface of the ice cream.
