Instant Ice Cream

Posted by Bee & John on August 9, 2011 at 12:40 AM

I heard that it might work... but I was sceptical.  Ice cubes and powdered milk.... riiiiiight!


However, I fell into a bad bit of headspace today and bought some ice cream.  I know, I know.... but it was the ice cream of my childhood!


Yuk.  Well, it was nice - but it was fluff!  It was like the fluff from the top of a cappuccino - only cold!


So - I went and tried the thing that I heard worked... but with scepticism.  I put in a handful of frozen raspberries, 3 heaped tablespoons of full cream milk powder, 2 tablespoons of (TM ground)  icing sugar (which I have ready for my slushy/sorbet emergencies) and a bunch of ice equivalent to 3 times the amount of milk powder I put in.  Speed 9 for 20-30 seconds.


Delish! It worked! Tasted MUCH better than my "going-back-to-childhood Ice Cream!".  Tasted REAL for a start!


Few LESSONS to remember though: 

 

  1. First, the frozen raspberries and the ice made it VERY dry so I put a peeled orange in for some liquid.  It ended up being a bit soft then because I put in too much liquid.  Add liquid if needed but bit by bit.
  2. Secondly - because the first lot of ingredients I tried were so dry - the powder didn't get dissolved properly.  No problem, I just gave it a good stir with my spatula and then wizzed it again for a few seconds.

LOL - thanks Helene - I may only have been with my wonderful John for 5 years.... but it took him 5 minutes to learn that I am NEVER wrong!

Thanks for sharing your 'lessons' with us Bee. This is all good-to-know and will help me avoid making my own mistakes... errrr... I mean "lessons'. I haven't tried this yet but can't wait to give it a go. I don't keep milk in the house so the dried version is going to work out just great, I'm sure. Thinking I may forgo the sugar and use maple syrup as the liquid. Oooh, I may just go to the store right now for some of that dried milk! Thanks again ;-)
