This weeks pick was made by Tommi of Brown Interior. I just happened to pick up a new ice cream maker so I was excited to make this! I've never made ice cream before so this was a learning experience. I decided to use mango's instead of the peaches because I saw some frozen mango at Trader Joe's that I wanted to try. I thought that the ice cream turned out ok. It didn't have the mango flavor I was hoping for. Next time I will definitely use fresh fruit instead of frozen stuff. I was trying to be good and use only whole milk so I left out the heavy cream and I think that was a mistake as well. It wasn't as creamy as ice cream normally should be. My ice cream had a strong vanilla flavor so next time I would add less vanilla.
There were a couple of tips that I read that I wish I had known about before making the ice cream. I read somewhere that it's better to have the machine running before pouring in the ice cream mixture. I also was reading that adding a little bit of alcohol prevents the ice cream from getting rock hard, which mine did. So both are good things to know for next time. I will definitely be making more ice cream and maybe even frozen yogurt this summer. I can't wait to try all the possibilities!
