Re: Has anyone made vanilla ice cream in their Vitamix?

I don't want to burst your bubble but I think the presets are not the way to go.

 

I made peach ice cream this weekend.   The peaches were frozen, some I had cut up from earlier in the season.   I added maybe 1/3 cup of sweetened condensed milk and let it run until I could see  the four "bubbles".  Came out perfect.   

 

If you use the preset you must use their directions & ingredients for success.   What did your recipe call for?    Frozen fruit?  Ice? etc.

 

For example, the soup preset will not work for you if you get all your ingredients out of the refrigerator.    They must be at room temperature.

I just bought the new vitamix with the variable speeds and presets. Trying to make ice cream on the preset but no luck, just slushy. Tried the variable speed settings but still no luck. Any tips?

I had completely good luck winging it on the presets. Your Mileage May Vary.
