Thank you so much for this recipe....I am on a sugar free diet and have not been able to enjoy ice cream in years....I used 1/4 cup of Splenda instead of sugar with one teaspoon of vanilla....This recipe is great...God bless you...:)
I didn't really like this ice cream. To me, it was very sour and full of ice crystals. To fix this problem, I invented Granny's Ice Cream II. I used only 3 egg white instead of 4 and I used 1 cup of vanilla yogurt instead of sour cream. Thus, I omitted the vanilla. It tasted much better and tasted more like real ice cream.
This recipe was amazing. I added mint extract, green food coloring and chocolate chips to make a chocolate mint ice cream and everyone loved it. I am now in the middle of making a cappucinno ice cream with instant coffee and cocoa.
I liked this a lot! I have to admit I was skeptical--I mean, sour cream in ice cream? No need for an ice cream maker? But it was very easy and yummy, just as Daphna said. The only change I would make is that I would add a little less sugar. My personal preference is for a less sweet ice cream, but otherwise, it was great! Thanks. (Hubby loved it, by the way...)
You'd never guess this was made w/o an ice cream freezer. The flavor and texture are wonderful. I added candy pieces to it and also 2 Tbsp. of cocoa for chocolate ice cream. I also made it low-fat by adding fat-free sour cream and used powdereded egg whites instead of raw ones. Unbelievably creamy for low-fat! Just don't do like I did and make the mistake of not stirring it enough.
This was surprisingly good! I used half sour cream & half vanilla yogurt & added mini-chocolate chips. I made sure to stir it every 30 minutes & it came out pretty creamy. I'm going to make up another batch this weekend & make the rum raisin this time.
I made this using 3/4 c "whippin' whites" rather than regular egg whites, 1/3 c splenda for the sugar, Light Sour Cream and I added 2 tsp espresso powder. It was wonderful! My husband, who's favorite ice cream is coffee, thought it was comparable to the full fat, full sugar ones I've bought. I plan on using this recipe with peaches next. And, after that, with cocoa powder and natural peanut butter. Mmmm!
Wow, this turned out better than I thought it would! I used free range egg whites, fat free sour cream and Splenda. For mocha ice cream, I used the two teaspoons instant coffee and two tablespoons of my own homemade sugar free chocolate syrup. I had a small helping as did my kids but my husband finished off the rest. Super easy, super good. I can't wait to try more flavors.
