View Full Version : Ice Cream Idea

03-06-2008, 09:57 AM
I just looked up Alton Brown's ice cream recipe. It's as follows.

1 cup Heavy Cream
2 cups Half n Half
1 cup sugar plus two tablespoons
2 vanilla beans
2 table spoons of peach preserves (no idea why)

Do you think the following would work?

1.5 Cups whipping cream - 11.5g carbs
1.5 Cups calorie countdown milk - 4.5 carbs
Liquid Sugar Twin - No carbs
2 Vanilla beans

I've never made ice cream, and don't have a machine but if this would work I'd be all over it. It should roughly make 1 quart of ice cream and the whole thing would only contain 16 carbs.

I was also thinking to make chocalate I could use calorie countdown chocolate milk. That would up the carbs by about 10 for the whole amount.

No idea, Eileen has a couple of ice cream recipes in here that you could compare notes with. Give it a try and let us know.

Also, for chocolate, don't rule out adding chocolate protein mix and/or cocoa powder.
