It looks like Dad has been diagnosed with Type II Diabeetus, so I've been looking at ways to help him keep getting his favorite stuff. One treat he always loves is ice cream, and even though it's got some carbs, the fat content helps the carbs to be absorbed more slowly so that your blood sugar doesn't spike. Since the local stores around here have very little to offer in the ways of sugar-free ice cream, I've started making my own. In a way, that's great for him, since he remembers the old hand crank machines from when he was a kid, and nostalgia is great at his age.

I've tried the "easy method" ice cream that just involve dumping the ingredients in the maker, but I've got to say nothing gives a better taste than starting off with a custard base - milk heated and thickened with egg yolks. It's taken some tries to get it right, but I think it's paying off. The Hershey's Dark cocoa powder and sugar-free dark chocolate bars make for a really good chocolate ice cream.

So take the Quiz and come back and tell us how you did and if you plan on having homemade ice cream this summer - and if so, what flavor you like.

Don't forget the Easy Quiz!

Good luck, and let me know if you have any issues.

I'm in the top ten on both, but it's still early and my rankings are going to plummet.

This is a recipe for gelato, so not sure how it compares to ice cream with respect to fat/sugar content. (The recipe is for 4-6 servings and uses 6 tbsp. of sugar)
http://mymelange.net/mymelange/2007/0​3​/gimmie-gelato.html

I have the source cookbook referenced in the article and it's been years since I made it but I recall it was pretty good.

From the cookbook:
If you don't have an ice cream maker, pour the mixture into a metal or plastic freezer container and freeze until set about 3 hours. Remove from the container and chop roughly into 3 inch pieces. Place in a food processor and process until smooth. Return to the freezer container and freeze again until firm. Repeat the freezing-chopping process two or three times until a smooth consistency is reached.

I've had teh 'beetus for almost 30 years now, and on the advice of my nutritionist and endocrinologist, I budget my carb intake.

So, sometimes I eat nothing but protein and vegetables, and then tuck into a pint of Haagen-Dazs about midnight.

//the replaceable lid is pointless imho
///especially since their "pints" are now 14oz

I recently became finger stickin' good, and I've gotten rid of most carbs in my diet.  I've also lost about 45 lbs so far doing that and walking for an hour every day carrying a 50 lb pack.

My blood sugar stays right where it should be, and my A1C has dropped a bit.

Every once in a while when the local soft serve place has my favorite flavor (lime creme twist), I'll get a kiddie cone, but only when my blood sugar is at or below 125.

But I stay away from bread, pasta, potatoes, rice, etc. for the most part.

Pesto works in cream sauces made for hot food. Why not iced?

I'd consider it to be a variation on garlic iced cream.

No sure about mixing in with sweet.

It might work, but only from some more talented than I.

I don't really think this is a goal I wish to put the time and money into pursuing. I mean, in the end, I *might* get pesto ice cream that's pretty good, and then the problem will be trying to convince everyone else to try it when they're all like bleeech and even if they do try it they'll be like "meh, it's okay" and then never ask me to make it again.

I think it would work, but ice cream doesn't necessarily have to be sweetened as much as it is. Savory desserts are underrated.

That's because you don't make it.
