Smooth homemade chocolate ice cream

cutipie721 | Aug 15, 2010 08:59 AM

I'm new to making ice cream at home and I'm excited!! I've made chocolate ice cream three times and I've encountered the same problem each time - it's not smooth enough. When it melts in my mouth, it feels powdery.

I have followed three totally different recipes (Ben and Jerry, Adhoc by TK, Bittersweet by Alice Medrich) and they are all powdery.

I sieve the batter even if they don't ask me to.

I thought the chocolate used wasn't bad (Callebaut).

I made sure the sugar is melted in the hot cream.

Oh the hot cream, could I have over boiled the cream?? Overcooked egg yolk?

I'm lost... HELP please!!
