I’d wondered (before we got our ice cream maker) just how to make organic ice cream. Given that you have a method of making ice cream — that is, turning ingredients into ice cream — it’s not difficult at all. The main issue is getting the organic ingredients.
We’ve been using organic ingredients to make our ice cream — which includes agave as a sweetener (see my article entitled Organic Agave: the honey substitute). I have to say that it’s just delicious. Of course, you could use honey instead or –gasp!– sugar; it’s your choice and we’re not here to dictate what anyone can eat. I will say that, if you use agave, you won’t feel the need for sugar.
Organic Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe
Amount Ingredients 2 cups organic cream or colostrum 1 cup organic milk To taste organic agave (sweetener) To taste organic vanilla 2 organic egg yolks (optional)
Put ingredients in a bowl; whisk to mix, pour into ice cream maker, turn on for 25 minutes (to taste), and you’re done.
There are also ice cream recipes that require cooking; my understanding is that they make smoother ice cream — but the recipe above is pretty darned smooth, and some of the best ice cream I’ve ever tasted.
It strikes me that, if you wish to add fruit flavors, extracting the juice from the fruit and adding it to the ice cream maker in the last few minutes would do it.
