so i've been experimenting with the ice cream recipes in my blendtec cookbook that came with the blender. So far everything I make is turning out like a smoothie but just a thick version. So i freeze the concoctions then it results in something like granita. I'm thinking of the obvious answers to this questions like "duh, it's a blender not an ice cream maker" but then why on earth would they include recipes? is this as good as it gets?i guess my next step is to take the frozen mixture after the freezer and put it back in the blender?
