I'm taking another lick at making homemade sugar free ice cream. A few years ago I tried recipe after recipe. Before I found a winner, the low-carb craze made even Breyer's safe for diabetics. Storebought was cheaper, too--$2.50 a half gallon on sale cost less than cream, Splenda and flavorings at home.
Besides, Breyer's tasted better! But when I found this tiny half-pint ice cream maker for 99 cents, my frugal scientist couldn't resist. The beauty of the half-pint is three fold:
*If a test batch goes bad, I won't have wasted many ingredients (1/3rd cup cream or milk)
*My husband can't overeat the results.
*I can switch to natural stevia sweetener instead of Equal or Splenda.
I'm always happy to have a homemade alternative, especially if it's better for us to eat. I'll keep you updated on the progress!
