  1. This is really good! I have to admit I was a little hesitant when I saw the ingredients, but the flavor is great, and my family loved it A great healthy alternative to ice cream!
  2. I am very impressed with this ice cream! I love how the egg is cooked, as I won't eat raw egg. I also loved how light is is...I didn't have to change a thing. Once recipe would be perfect for a 1 1/2 quart ice cream maker as it was slightly too much for my 1 quart. I used mint extract instead of creme de menthe, and used about 1 tsp of it instead of a few drops. The ice cream itself was nice and creamy and stayed somewhat soft in the freezer, although after a week it became a little more icy. A very good ice cream I will definitely be making again!! Thanks!
