Nielsen-Massey Vanilla and my Ice Cream Maker Major Malfunction

Comments Off on Nielsen-Massey Vanilla and my Ice Cream Maker Major Malfunction


Our summer weather has actually been rather mild. Not too hot at all. I have a feeling we will be hit with intense heat pretty soon. I like to make my own ice cream every now and then. It takes a little prep and pricey ingredients but you can’t beat the fresh taste, plus you know exactly what is in it. I am thrilled to have tried a recipe sent to me by Nielsen-Massey Vanilla. They make the best tasting vanilla!

I gathered my ingredients to make Coconut Vanilla Ice Cream. Sounds good doesn’t it? It really does not take many ingredients at all. I never thought of using Coconut Milk for making ice cream. Following the directions, step by step, the ice cream was in my ice cream maker and started its churning. I have one of those “drum” type makers that you freeze solid before preparation. The ice cream mixture tasted superb so I could not wait for the finished product. Churning away….churning…..churning….screeching……screeching…..silence…dead stop. okay. Nothing is happening. I have a drum full of ice cream mixture and a machine that has given up.

Plan B – I placed the entire drum with the partially frozen mixture in the freezer. I kept checking it, stirring it, and after a few hours, I actually had ice cream. It turned out pretty good. I loved the taste and would make this ice cream again – that is if I have a new ice cream maker.

What made my ice cream so delectable? Of course it had to be the Nielsen-Massey vanilla! The recipe takes one tablespoon of the rich Nielsen-Massey Pure Vanilla Extract. In my baking and recipe needs, I always reach for the premium vanilla extract knowing I will have the sweet warm creamy vanilla flavor only Nielsen-Massey Vanilla can provide. Did you know that one tablespoon of vanilla extract is equal to one vanilla bean?
