Used different ingredients. I wanted to make a chocolate ice cream, so I omitted the vanilla and put 5 teaspoons of cocoa powder in with the milk before mixing all the ingredients together. I tasted it before I froze it and must say that it did not taste overly of chocolate, but as it froze the taste of chocolate came out more! The end result was it tasted like chocolate ice cream, even my dad liked it so it must have been alright! I guess if I put more cocoa powder in then it would be more chocolatey. - 13 Mar 2010


Used different ingredients. I added ginger biscuits and it was a treat, it gave it a crunchy texture very yummy. - 04 Apr 2011


using single cream instead of double cream does not make it healther..that just removes some of the fat that would have kept you fuller for longer - 08 Jul 2012
