For those of you who make homemade ice-cream do you have a favorite recipie? Maybe one with maple syrup or something instead of refind sugar? Also do you use an ice-cream machine or do you have some other method? We really love the creaminess of ice-cream so I would prefer true ice-cream recipies but hey sherbets and what not are always good too! THanks so much

I've been making Cathe's "Better than ice cream" which you can find if you search in this forum, but basically it's a cup of frozen sliced bananas, a cup of frozen fruit (we like strawberries), a tsp of vanilla, and a splash of soymilk. I make it in my Vitamix and it's awesome. No sugar is necessary (although I've put in a drop or two of liquid stevia at times, when using a tarter fruit, like cherries). The bananas give it that creamy mouth-feel and it's quite satisfying as an ice cream substitute. HTH!

I've modified that recipe as well, and added a bit of cream instead of soymilk and I used bananas, cherries, and a bit of almond , and some organic cocoa powder. I put in a bit of maple syrup as well, and you can add eggs too to help thicken it if they are organic free range.Those are pretty safe.

Oh, yeah, and uh..
: I added a bit of rum to ours

Easy Vanilla Ice Cream

3 cups well-chilled cream (or 2 cream, 1 milk)
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. sugar (or maple syrup)

Whisk together, then freeze in your ice-cream maker.

Cookies and Cream Ice Cream: use the vanilla recipe and add your favorite chopped sandwich cookies during the last five minutes of freezing.

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream: use the vanilla recipe, subbing peppermint flavor for the vanilla. Add desired amount of chocolate chips during last 5 minutes of freezing. You can add a few drops of green food coloring if you like green mint chocolate chip ice cream.

Easy Chocolate Ice Cream

1 cup whole milk
8 oz. chocolate (semi-sweet chocolate chips, milk chocolate, whatever you like)
1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups cream

Heat milk until bubbles form around edges. Combine sugar and chocolate in a blender, blending until chocolate is finely chopped. Add hot milk, and blend until chocolate is melted. Refrigerate completely.

Combine cream, vanilla, and chilled chocolate mixture. Freeze in ice-cream maker.

These recipes came with my cuisanart ice-cream maker. They are super easy and very good. They don't last too long around here!
