Smooth Sweet Cream

Smooth Sweet Cream

This recipe uses a texture enhancer called guar gum. It gives great improvement to the texture and result of the ice cream with the added benefit of being able to reduce the fat content. Other texture enhancers require heat to be activated and one of our favorites is egg, which we will be using in the French ice cream and gelato recipes.


  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 0.2 Gram Guar Gum (~Pea Size)
  • 3/4 Cup Milk
  • 1/2 Cup Cream


Mix the dry sugar and guar gum (if they are not premixed, the guar gum will cause lumps in the mixture). Then add the milk and stir until well blended. Lastly, mix in the cream.
