Homemade Ice Cream Troubleshooting

MsJunsu | Jul 5, 2012 09:13 AM

Hi! I have a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker that I bought from Costco and have tried making homemade ice cream twice now (first time was a horrible error) and the second time I followed a recipe and it turned out okay for the most part, but I noticed small bits of wax/fat that my sister deemed utterly unacceptable (esp. as it left a waxy film on the roof of our mouths and tongue). I was wondering if this was a result of the recipe (ingredients and/or method)? Also, is there was a way to better 'homogenize' (or avoid the formation of the bits of fat in) homemade ice cream? Has anyone else come across this problem?

Ingredients I used:
200 mL Oberweis (homogenized) Whole Milk
100 mL Trader Joes Heavy Whipping Cream (recipe called for 36% fat Whipping Cream, but I couldnt find anything that specifically labeled the cream as such)
Brown Sugar
Matcha Tea

Methods (very briefly):
Whip the cream until firm
Add milk/sugar/tea mixture and stir lightly
Add to ice cream maker
