Carb Counters Thickner vs. Glucomannan Powder

I've been trying different coconut milk ice cream recipes and ran across Kevinpa's. Has anyone tried it and how did you like it?

I also wondered if I could use my glucomannan instead of his Dixie Counters Thickner? I think he called it Not/Sugar?

Thanks so much!

Glucomannan works a bit differently- it may take some experimenting. I'm new to glucomannan. The NotStarch thickener is guar gum and xantham gum if I remember correctly. I use straight guar gum sprinkled out of an empty spice jar. It takes a minute to thicken so I sprinkle it over the top, mix it in, wait a minute and then see if it needs more thickening.

I want to try using alcohol for keeping it spoonable. I've read or seen it somewhere that it keeps it from getting rock hard. I now make 2 servings at a time for that reason.It might have even been it a thread.

I've never tried gluc. in ice cream. I think it's worth the try. Let us know how it goes if you try it.

I tried putting in alcohol but it still turned out hard as a rock. Does your cashew yogurt ice cream turn hard Esther?

Ice Cream + alcohol

There is a recipe in Carolyns blog. Low Carb Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe | All Day I Dream About Food

I haven't tried it yet, but it looks great.
