Notes

  1. Coconut milk, almond milk, or milk can be substituted for macadamia milk.
  2. Vegetable glycerin can be left out out it is used purely to make the ice cream extra creamy and soft to serve.
  3. 1/2 tsp of guar  gum is added to help maintain a soft scoopable consistency.
  4. Another tip to keep ice cream soft and stop forming ice crystals is to store in a zip lock bag with the air removed.  You can do this by placing the bag over your ice cream container, place a straw in the corner of the bag and zip up to the straw.  Suck all the air from the bag and quickly remove the straw and seal.
