Other tips when making ice cream
- In addition, to make the ice cream more attractive, you can decorate it with fruit rinds such as pineapple peel, watermelon rind, or coconut.
- If you want to take the ice cream from the mold easily, let it sit for 3-5 minutes after taking it from the refrigerator or dip the mold cover in water before removing the ice cream.
- Avoid adding water to the mixture lest it loses the smoothness of the finished ice cream.
- Your ice cream batch will be softer and less frosty as you add too much additional sugar.
