One of the struggles of ice cream making I’ve found even on day 4 is balancing the integrity of the ice cream itself. That’s fancy pants for saying I add too much stuff. See, store-bought ice cream is always lacking in the good stuff: swirls, brownies, chunks and so on. However, there’s a reason for that: integrity.
Do you want an ice cream that is full of fillings or one that actually fully freezes and you can put in a cone? It’s a fine line. I failed by adding too much jam to the first ice cream I made. I almost crossed the line with this butterscotch ripple from Lick It!. Okay, maybe I did cross it since the butterscotch really did hamper the setting of the ice cream and the husband said it was quite sweet. Hey, this one was for me and I was pleased. The butterscotch was easy to make and the ice cream was quite creamy even if not fully hardened. Another coconut milk base down for the count.
