Cook’s Tips

  • For those who are lactose intolerant substitute cream and milk for coconut cream and coconut milk.
  • Fresh lemon juice gives a much fresher, lemony flavour. Bottled lemon is very often diluted or “bulked up” with less expensive juices and preservatives.
  • For a less creamy ice-cream, use less cream and more milk (gelato) but keep the total quantity of dairy/egg ratio the same i.e. 500 g dairy: 4 egg yolks.
  • If using whole eggs in the ice-cream, the ice-cream will have a slightly icy texture
  • If using low fat products, your ice cream may have a slightly icy texture, not creamy.
