Why does my ice cream have a grainy texture?

Mila | Aug 21, 2006 05:18 PM

I made two ice creams this weekend, one French vanilla based custard with cream, milk and egg yolks and the other was chocolate with whole eggs and 1/2 and 1/2.

I have the basic model Cuisinart

and the bowl had been frozen over 24 hours.

The bowl was quite full for each and I took it off at 25 minute mark and it was a bit slushy. Sort of soft peak whipped cream texture.

Any tips for ultra smooth ice cream would be most appreciated.
Thanks.
