The flavor and consistency of this ice cream was fabulous! It didn't get all hard and icy in the freezer either. I gave it four stars because it is ultra sweet! I like the other aspects of the recipe so much, I will play with the honey amount and see if I can get the same consistency and flavor without so much sweetness.
Edited on 3/15/2012: I have made this a dozen times now. I have found by cutting the honey completely in half we get the perfect sweetness. This is my favorite ice cream recipe!
I can't be sure, but this may well be the best ice cream I've ever made. The only change I made was to use fat-free condensed milk, in an entirely futile attempt to lower the fat a bit. But otherwise I kept it the same ... I hardly ever use heavy cream when making ice cream, but I'm glad I did! I used maple syrup instead of honey, and it was absolutely, unbelievably, over-the-top scrumptious. Pure, sweet maple flavor, wonderful texture. The good news is that a little goes a long way, so that even though a half cup is 4 WW points, it's worth every one of 'em -- and I didn't feel the need for more. Thanks so much for posting this!
