1 cup milk

Sweet Cream Base II

2 cups heavy or whipping cream
cup sugar
2/3 cup half-and-half

Sweet Cream Base III

1 cup sweetened condensed milk, cold


************************************************** *********

1 x 15 oz can coconut cream, such as Coco Lopez

************************************************** *********


Sweet Cream Base I

Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more. Pour in the cream and milk and whisk to blend.


Sweet Cream Base II

This simple recipe is made with a minimum of ingredients and requires no cooking. It makes a very creamy ice cream with 25% butterfat, but it does not store well in home freezers, so be prepared to eat it all.

Pour the cream into a mixing bowl. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more. Pour in the half-and-half and whisk to blend.


Sweet Cream Base III

This recipe makes a less creamy, less rich ice cream. Ben likes the slightly "cooked" flavor of the sweetened condensed milk.

Whisk the light cream and the sweetened condensed milk together in a mixing bowl until blended.
