We all love ice cream, but have you taken a look at the ingredients in your favorite brand lately? It's full of things that I can't even pronounce, and the less chemicals that our body ingests, the better, in my opinion.
Mother Earth News has some great articles on their site, but I want to direct you to the "Still" freezing part of the article. The process is called "still freezing," because (as the name implies), it just kind of sits still in your freezer. This is different than an ice cream maker, which continually stirs your concoction and keeps ice crystals from forming. While your best still-frozen dessert will never be as smooth as one that is "stir frozen," making ice cream in your freezer provides a fun adventure.
