RE: OMG! This stuff will kill you! How many calories in this stuff? Instant heart attack!


get a clue: Sugar is what causes hypertension, not natural fats. Fats heal.

check out traditional diets for the last 10,000 years....

high fat + low sugar (or ferment the sugars before eating)

(the only caveat is you have to distinguish between healthy & unhealthy fats. Its easy- the unhealthy ones are anything manmade like canola, corn oil, etc.)

btw: if you are wondering why everything nowadays is low fat & high sugar, its because cancer/heart disease is hugely profitable.

You might as well write "Carrots kill!" when you end it with a conspiracy based on nothing but paranoia.

OMG!!! Carrots Kill!! :D Don't stab me in the eyes!

Everything is killing us. Your comment is awesome!

I've been making this recipe for awhile! I first saw it on Martha Stewart haha, but it's superbly creamy, smooth and oh so rich. Taste like it came from an artisan ice cream shop. Although, I think it's the bee's knees, I do agree that for my personal taste it's ultra sweet and the condensed milk flavor can be a little overwhelming. So here's what I do to combat this : I reduced the condensed milk to 8-10 oz and add 6-4 oz of half and half or sweet cream depending on the add ins (if I am adding additional liquid I add less half and half and 10 oz condensed milk, this keeps it from being too thin and runny). This cuts the sugar wonderfully. My favorite way of serving this is with meyer lemon juice, about 1/2 cup, added in to the base. Sooooo good. Best lemon ice cream I've ever had. Also good with chocolate pudding cake.

I made this last night and added a mix of 3T instant coffee diluted in a couple tsp of water (blend it in after its whipped) it is amazing

I would like to make a 4 litre pale ice cream how much whipping cream and condensed milk would I need per 4 litres?

I loved this stuff but I will admit it was VERY sweet. I added in around a tablespoon of chocolate syrup and while it did add some flavor, it was still more sweet than chocolate (if that makes any sense). I don't know if adding in something like water would help dilute it, though from what I've read on the comments it seems like you could change the cream or milk to a less sweet version. What would be the best option so you can taste the ice cream and flavor and not be overpowered by the sweetness?

I made this and it is wonderful. Added some dry jello mix, just a little for flavor. Once you try it, you won't care how many calories......keep it a secret tho, your kids will consume all of it!!!

OMG! This stuff will kill you! How many calories in this stuff? Instant heart attack!

Well heavy whipping cream only has 60 calories with not much sugar, and sweetened condense milk only has 120 with again not a lot of sugar.So it not a heart attack plus i tried it and if you put greek yogurt in it it healthier.Plus maybe oreos. So no it's not bad for you and won't give you a heart attack.

Thank you, HelloYouSeemNice, I think I'll stick with the Greek yogurt and maybe coconut palm sugar. Actually, I have already made some ice cream with just Greek yogurt and coconut palm sugar and it was great. Coconut palm sugar is a 1 on the glycemic index so I don't think I did much harm to my body :-) And by the way, You Seem Nice Too !

I tried it and it was AMAZING! I put in a little greek yogurt and some oreos and everybody loved it. Thank you great work :D

Hi, how long does this ice cream last in the freezer??

furlow1 year ago
This was the 2nd time I made this recipe. First time I over wiped the cream and it had a buttery mouth feel, my mistake though. 2nd time it came out great, but I would have to reiterate that it was too creamy, however I had used uk double cream which contains higher fat than us heavy cream. I'm going to try it out using whipping cream which has approximately the same fat content of heavy cream or maybe even something lighter.

Still its a great recipe!

i tried mixing flavors used in shaved ice, blueberry,watermelon and apple (green) it was amazing!

Dammit, I'm trying to loose weight!! :) Cool stuff...pun intended.
I made this last night but after reading the comments about it leaving an after taste from the fat I substituted one of the cups of whipping cream for half n half. It ended up being delicious and probably not as heavy. All my kids loved it and want me to make it again!
I actually made this at home using a hand mixer. Lot of pain and quite a bit of gain.

While it is delicious, it feels a bit thick. I'm a heavy eater, and I feel weighed down after two scoops. Any alternatives to maybe lighten up the ingredients?
doodlecraft (author)  RSUSummoner1 year ago
Way to go! I think it's thick as well...but if you cover it with enough fudge, that seems to help! :) ha ha, kidding.
Not sure how to lighten it...some suggested part milk or half and half instead of whole cream. :)

We don't use any refined sugar at our house & organic icecream is expensive, so I have been making this for a few years now using organic cream & organic sweetened condensed milk. If you want to add flavors add to the condensed milk and add more than you think you will need. When you add it to the sweetened condensed milk it will look like a lot, but remember you are still folding in a LOT of cream which will dilute the flavor a lot. Also, if you are going to add any mix ins, put it in the freezer for an hour then fold in the nut, chocolate chips, cookie dough, brownie pieces, whatever. This way they don't all just sink to the bottom & are evenly distributed. My favorite flavor so far has been key lime (1/4-1/2 c organic lime juice concentrate) with bits of homemade graham cracker praline. Or, oatmeal chocolate chip cookie dough with caramel swirls, a Tbs melted butter+2tsp vanilla+1tsp cinnamon in the condensed milk, then after an hour in the freezer stir in the oatmeal cookie dough chunks & swirl in the caramel sauce (mine is homemade, but you could use the store bought stuff too). We love experimenting with flavors at our house.

We tried this last night at our house and this worked really well as far as consistency and "ice-cream-ness" goes. (It's a word!) But I did feel that the heavy cream left a bit of residue/aftertaste in the mouth from all the fat. I'll try it again but next time perhaps I'll substitute a light cream/half and half. It's also VERY sweet so maybe an extra cup of the cream to lighten it up a bit, though I'm not sure how that would change the setting/consistency. Overall, great recipe!
