Making ice cream at home

[Editor's note: Topic selected and edited for Portal publishing]

I have tried to make ice cream at home with 3 little ones recently. We have great fun. :)

It tasted very nice and smooth.

But don't keep more than 2 weeks as no preservative added.

Ingreadient:

greenQ. Do you use a hand whisk or the electronic ones? Will the former work? I have a hand held one (electronic) but the whisk itself is partly bent...not sure whether can work or not!

You can try for it, mincy.

I enjoyed the process of making this homemade ice cream with my kids. So do them. Of course may be they found a chance to taste a little bit of the yummy chocolate/milk mixture, whipped cream and chocolate chips when they help me to stir or mix it. :wink:

Can easily get most of the ingredients except the non-dairy whipping cream. I only found it at Phoon Huat.

Hi Andaiz,

I use electrical hand held whisk. I think the hand whisk can be used too but taking a bit longer for the sugar to be dissolved.
