Loved it! It tastes rich and creamy without all the fat. Just make sure to chill custard before putting in the ice cream maker. I only added 1 tbsp. flour too. This makes just under 2 quarts.

Delicious and creamy. I used 2% milk and I reserved 1/4 cup sugar and put it over mashed strawberries one hour before I made the custard. I then added the strawberries right before pouring into the freezer bucket. Peaches prepared the same way was equally good.

This adds a whole new experience to ice cream. It has a much richer, creamer taste. I did alter the recipe a little, I substituted 1 c. of light cream for 1 c. milk. (Unfortunately, makes recipe more fattening, but a creamer texture.) Mashing fruit was a great idea, I used bananas and the kids loved it.

Pretty good, but I found adding the flour a little superfluous. I've made custard-based ice creams before, and have never added flour. It thickened up a lot sooner than it would have had I left out the flour. I left half of it plain and half chocolate flake. A nice recipe to have on hand, but I think I'll stick with my no-cook recipes, they're easier and taste just as good.
