I made two flavors using this base mixture, which I followed to the "t". Added 1/2 a small jar of Nutella to mixture while it thickened on stove. To other batch I replaced 1 cup of the milk with coconut cream (not coconut milk) and 1 whole vanilla bean I scraped the seeds out from and cooked pod with base: then strained. When gelato was almost done churning I added 1/2 c toasted coconut and 1/4 cup shaved milk chocolate. The Nutella mixture seemed very creamy and smooth PRIOR to churning in comparison to the coconut. The coconut had an "eggy" taste Prior to churning. However, the Nutella gelato had an odd grainy texture after churning, but the flavor was really good. The coconut was amazing, did not taste "eggy" anymore and nice and smooth after churning. I did add 1/2 c more heavy cream while it was churning as it seemed way to thick. I don't know if it would be better to add nutella AFTER heating the base, or maybe the coconut was smooth because I added extra cream? I will try it again and adjust my rating if it makes a difference.
