We made ous CHOCOLATE by adding 1 TBSP dark cocoa powder. We also substituted 2% milk for the half & half. Making a second batch tonight.
What is "whole buttermilk"? Never seen that. Natural and store-bought buttermilk is low-fat.
This master recipe was perfect for tweaking into a satisfying "light" ice cream recipe by substituting reduced fat cream cheese, lowfat buttermilk, and reducing the 1 1/2c half and half to 1/2 cup half and half and 1 cup 2%milk. I also lowered the 3/4 cup sugar to 1/2 cup of sweetener(1/4c plus 2T sugar, and 2T of honey to add a nice flavor and texture element.) The ice cream came out tasting rich and creamy with a lovely, subtle tang. Perfect for topping with toasted pecans.
