Cream ice cream, homemade and super creamy

In the ice cream parlors you cannot miss the cream ice cream. One of the great classics. Creamy, delicious and with that unmistakable flavor. Although things change when we make it at home. Because? We encourage you to do it, you’ll see how you’re going to discover the real flavor of cream.

We are going to use only three ingredients to make the cream ice cream: cream, of course, egg whites that will help give it a more airy texture and, finally, sugar. A point to note before continuing: egg whites must be pasteurized for food safety reasons. Otherwise, if we keep unpasteurized ice cream with egg whites for a long time, even in the freezer, we run the risk of it becoming dangerous for consumption.

It should be noted that it is a fairly high-calorie ice cream flavor, even homemade, so you should consume it in moderation. Although if you prefer, to make it lighter, you can replace half of the cream with evaporated milk and add it when you are integrating all the ingredients.

Another point to consider is sugar. The amount that we propose makes a sweet cream ice cream come out at its right point. However, you can always reduce it to your liking. Also, if you get inverted sugar, which is an ingredient that helps make ice cream creamy, we give you the tips for use.

How to make cream ice cream

First of all, mount the whites. To do this, we put them in a bowl and beat with some rods. We can do it by hand or with an electric mixer.

When the whites are almost completely assembled, add the sugar. In the event that we are going to use inverted sugar, it is added later.

Now it’s the turn of the cream. We are going to beat the same with some rods by hand or by machine until it is almost assembled. For a better result, the cream should be very cold, just taken out of the fridge and if we can, the utensils should also be cold.

Once the egg whites and the whipped cream, we are going to integrate the egg whites with the cream. First we add ⅓ of the whites to the cream and beat well. If we had invert sugar, we’ll add it now. We incorporate another ⅓ of the whites and this time we remove it with a silicone spatula with enveloping movements from bottom to top. We repeat the operation.

Put in the fridge and let it cool for a couple of hours. Then we put it in the fridge and program it to make the shortbread between 30 and 60 minutes, until the machine’s rods stop. We put in the freezer for a couple more hours.

Keep the cream ice cream in the fridgeDamian Serrano

If we did not have a refrigerator, instead of putting it in the fridge, we put it in a container with a lid and directly freeze it for 2 hours. Then we beat the mixture again and freeze again. We repeat this step every 30 minutes about 3 or 4 more times. With this we make sure that the ice cream does not crystallize so that it is creamy, with almost the same result as with the machine.
