Tips for Perfecting your Ice Cream Textures
Adding Chunks and Flavors
For best results, add ingredients such as vanilla extract or chocolate directly to the ice cream base. Other chunky ingredients such as cookies or nuts should be added immediately before freezing.
Making Creamier Ice Creams
• The more fat (cream) you have, the smoother and creamier your ice cream will be.
• Liquid sweeteners such as honey, corn syrup or glucose give the ice cream a creamy, stable texture.
• A touch of alcohol, such as a fruit liqueur or vodka also contribute to a smoother texture and a tangy taste.
• For a softer consistency, freeze your ice cream in a shallow container covered with cling wrap.
