Just like DQ Soft Serve Ice Cream!

Gelatin is what gives this ice cream that unique and creamy ‘soft-serve’ texture.

In a small dish, add water and sprinkle gelatin over. Let sit 5 minutes.  In saucepan, warm milk over medium heat until almost a simmer. Remove from heat and stir in the sugar, vanilla, salt and gelatin mixture, stirring until sugar and mixture is smooth. Pour into a large container and chill until cold.

Stir in the cream, cover and refrigerate overnight. Pour mixture into an ice cream maker, and churn for about 20 minutes until thick.

Pour into container, and freeze for 6-8 hours. Press a bit of plastic wrap directly over the surface of the ice cream.

Now all that’s left to do is… enjoy 🙂

    Would this work with other milks (almond, coconut etc)?

    Thank you

      The texture will definitely be different – fat (and sugar!) is really needed in ice cream to give it that creamy, silky smooth mouth-feel – especially for this type of ‘soft-serve’ ice cream. But please let me know how it turns out if you use a dairy alternative!
