Tips for perfecting your ice cream textures
Adding chunks and flavours
For best results, ingredients such as vanilla extract or chocolate should be added directly to the ice cream base, whereas chunky ingredients such as biscuits or nuts should be added immediately before freezing!
Making creamier ice creams
• The more fat (cream), the softer and creamier your ice cream will be
• Liquid sweeteners such as honey, corn syrup or glucose ensure your ice cream has a creamy and stable texture
• A little alcohol such as a fruit liqueur or vodka also contribute to a smoother texture and a tangy taste
• For a softer consisitency, freeze your ice cream in a shallow container covered with plastic wrap
