Step 4

Step 4: Add the berry puree to the mixture, folding gently to combine evenly. Tip: For a swirl effect, stir less.

  • I'm new to making ice cream. How do I ensure my whipped cream reaches soft peaks?

    Soft peaks are achieved when the cream holds a peak that slightly droops over. Keep mixing until the cream doubles in size and forms gentle slopes as it drops from the whisk.

  • Can I use frozen berries instead of fresh ones?

    Absolutely! Just make sure to thaw and drain them before pureeing to avoid excess water affecting the texture of your ice cream.

  • How do I prevent ice crystals from forming in my homemade ice cream?

    Ensure your freezer is cold enough, and freeze the mixture quickly. You can also cover your ice cream with plastic wrap before sealing it to minimize air exposure.

  • My ice cream turned out too hard. Any tips?

    Try letting it sit at room temperature for a few minutes before serving. You can also add a small amount of alcohol (like vodka) to the mixture before freezing to keep it scoopable.

  • Can I add mix-ins like chocolate chips or nuts?

    Yes! Gently fold them into the ice cream mixture before freezing. This way, they'll stay evenly distributed throughout your ice cream.

  • What's the best way to store homemade ice cream?

    Store it in an airtight container in your freezer. For best results, place a layer of plastic wrap directly over the ice cream's surface to prevent ice crystals from forming.
