ice cream made with erythritol

Does anyone have some ice cream recipes that are made with erythritol and not splenda? Thanks.

Let me find my favorite ice cream recipe, Kemi..

Read the whole thread for all the variations..I don't use the PolyD..but the glycerine makes this ice cream smooth and creamy..

Carolyn, this sound wonderful. Two questions...where do I find glycerine? Is it powdered erythritol or granular erythritol? I have both. Also, could you make it a fruity icecream by adding raspberries or blackberries? Thanks.

Kemi:...Glycerine can be found at WalMart in the pharmacy department..or probably at Walgreens. Well, since the cream is heated, you can use the granulated so it dissolves.

Yes, you could make a fruity ice cream of course. I have done this and added some raspberry Davinci's..Make sure your fruit isn't frozen..

Carolyn, I just checked out glycerine and am afraid I can't use it. It is derived from vegetable and palm oil and I don't use those oils. The only ones I use are olive oil and coconut oil.

Is Davinci's syrup sweetened with Splenda? I won't use that. Sorry if I sound so picky but I have to be very careful with what I put in my body as I have diabetes and thyroid problems. Thanks.

Well...skip the glycerine and see what happens and forget the Davinci's..To get more of a raspberry flavor, you could puree some berries and add the whole ones, too.

I'm sure it will be fine.

Did you say to use the granular erythritol, not the powdered? Does granular dissolve better than the powder?
