eCreamery made a special appearance on Good Day Sacramento’s live morning show on Wednesday March 4th.

The Good Day crew wanted to create their own custom flavor that represented the personalities of the live morning show hosts.

Our chef started with our refreshing Mango sorbet as the base flavor and mixed in almonds and coconut flakes, because apparently the crew is all “a little nuts!” The delicious treat was finished off with rainbow sprinkles, because Good Day Sacramento covers “everything under the rainbow!”

 

Congratulations to Another Ice Cream Contest Winner, Jo Anne from California!

We have a March winner!  We will send Jo Anne S. four pints of her custom creation to share with friends and family. Congratulations Jo Anne!

Homemade eCreamery Ice Cream

Yes! We are so excited to be officially launching our eCreamery Gourmet Ice Cream Flavorings line.

Ice Cream Flavoring

Make eCreamery Ice Cream at Home

Our new gourmet flavoring line allows you to rule the scoop, even more than before. We’re turning the churning over to you. Our gourmet ice cream flavorings are deliciously compatible with all homemade ice cream machines.

The Four premiere flavors are:

3 Cocoa Bean Chocolate

Vanilla Bean

Buttered Caramel

Tiramisu Cappuccino

So, in addition to being able to purchase these gourmet ice cream flavorings we are also giving you what we think is the World’s Best Ice Cream recipe. Each jar has a very quick and easy recipe on it which makes wonderful ice cream but we wanted to take it one step further and let you in on some of the secrets that the pros use. Follow along below as I make our Tiramisu Cappuccino Ice Cream at home!! The entire project from start to finish officially takes 24-28 hours. I’ve given you directions below on how to occupy all 28 hours but not all of them include ice cream making related tasks.

The World’s Best Ice Cream Recipe

Below, I made Tiramisu Cappuccino but you can use the same method below to make all 4 flavors. Just sub in your favorite!

eCreamery's Tiramisu Cappuccino Gourmet Ice Cream Flavoring

Essential Utensils:

1 Cup Measuring Cup
Tablespoon
Whisker
Medium Sauce pan
Medium Bowl (warmed liquid)
Large Bowl (for possible ice bath)
Rubber Spatula
Frozen Storage Container for Your Ice Cream or (eCreamery Ice Cream Containers)
Plastic Wrap
Ingredients:
1-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1-1/2 cups whole milk
1-1/2 cups nonfat skim milk powder
1/4 cup sugar
4 TBSP eCreamery’s Tiramisu Cappuccino
Before you get started:
Most likely the bowl from your at home ice cream maker needs to be frozen. I’ve tried speeding this process along and there is no good way to do it. It needs to be in the freezer for 24 hours. If it’s not, you will never get the ice cream you desire. If you are throwing it in there now, PERFECT! Keep reading. This will give you time to make your ice cream base a day ahead, too! This is called the “The Aged to Perfection World’s Best Ice Cream Base Preferable Solution” you’ll find it below. Let me recap. Put your ice cream machine’s bowl in the freezer. Go ahead and put your Frozen Storage Container for your World’s Best Ice Cream in the freezer as well. Follow the directions below and make your World’s Best Ice Cream Base and put it in the refrigerator, make dinner, drink some wine, eat dinner, watch a tv show, go to bed and sleep for 12 hours. The next day is entirely up to you. Please spend it however you see fit but return to making the World’s Best Ice Cream at about the same time as the day before or a least 24 hours later. I wouldn’t be so picky but I want you to make the World’s Best Ice Cream so I am trying to give you every single tip that I can. You’ll thank me later.
Making your World’s Best Ice Cream Base:
Combine your whole milk and heavy whipping cream in your medium saucepan. Your burner should be somewhere between low to medium. You know your stove better than I do so heat as your heart desires. Please make sure you continually whisk the contents until the temperature has reached 170° Fahrenheit or warm enough to coat the back of a spoon but DO NOT BOIL! Boiled cream is not what we are going for here. A nicely heated creamy milk base is the key. It will allow us to easily incorporate our dry ingredients. Yum!

Heating your milk and cream

As soon as you hit 170 F, pull your heated base from the burner and whisk in your nonfat skim milk powder, sugar and eCreamery’s Tiramisu Cappuccino Gourmet Flavoring.
Mix in the flavor!
Keep whisking until thoroughly incorporated. At this point you’ll want to pour your base into a refrigerator safe container. We always, always use a spatula to make sure we scrape every last bit into the next container. That’s potential ice cream your rinsing away if you don’t!!
Cool it Down
From here, you have 2 options.
The Ice Bath Approach aka Burn & Churn:
Remember in the beginning when we talked about the 24 hour thing? If your bowl was already in the freezer before you read that, I grant you permission to use the Ice Bath Approach. This method will cool your base the quickest. Create an ice bath with ice and water in a larger bowl than the one you poured your base into. Submerge the base into the ice bath and refrigerate. It should take about 2 hours to get down to the optimum temperature of 40 degrees. You will then be ready to freeze according to your ice cream machine’s directions. There is another option for the patient at heart, below. Even I can be patient for the World’s Best Ice Cream.

The Aged to Perfection, World’s Best Ice Cream Base Preferred Method:

Are you going for the World’s Best? If yes, than follow these directions: Cover your ice cream base with a lid or plastic wrap and refrigerate for 24 hours. Now, follow the directions above for what to do for the next 24 hours. :) When you pull out your Aged to Perfection Ice Cream base it will be separated. You will need to whisk it until it is a cohesive color and mixture.

Whisked and ready to pour ice cream base

The fun part! I have a super fun Candy Apple Green Kitchen Aid Mixer with an Ice Cream Attachment. It helps me make the World’s Best Ice Cream. I’m sure your ice cream machine will be the perfect assistant as well. Turn on your ice cream machine and pour in your World’s Best Ice Cream Base. Again, use your spatula to get every last bit of base into the frozen bowl for churning.


Get your Ice Cream Bowl Ready!

Churnin' Churnin' Ice Cream Love

Now the big question, how long do I churn? The amount of time it will take your ice cream to churn will have to do with the temperature of your bowl, the temperature of your base and your ice cream machine. Churning will probably last between 20 – 30 minutes. The real test will be the consistency of the product. Check out the picture of what to strive for:

Churned and ready to Freeze

Grab your spatula and your Frozen Storage Container for Your Ice Cream from the freezer and transfer your churned World’s Best Ice Cream base into the bowl. Make sure you scrape all of the ice cream off of the ice cream paddle. Set it aside on a plate and lick it clean later. Oh yes, now would be a good time to get in a little taste test.

My Frozen Storage Container for Freezing My Ice Cream

Your churned ice cream should be thick enough that you can stick your spatula in it and it stands on it's own. Get it?

All you’ll have to do now is freeze your ice cream. Pop your churned World’s Best Ice Cream in the freezer, let it harden and then roll it back out and ENJOY!! It should make about 2 pints. Eat it all at once. Just kidding!! Share the love so everyone knows that you make the WORLD’S BEST ICE CREAM!!!!

Jessica Prince wrote to us back in August and here’s what she had to say:

I just got the most incredible gift – this ice cream is AMAZING!!!! ITs called the xoxoxo J.B.Prince xoxoxo -its coffee and sea salt gelato ice cream with brownie pieces and chocolate chips – its the best gift EVER!!! but there was no note, no gift card – I have no idea who its from!!!!! please email me who got this gift for me! i need to thank someone but i have no idea who it could be!!!! please let me know ASAP! thank you – what an amazing gift! all my best and thanks, Jessica Prince

Whoops!!! Did we forget to include the card? Did the mailman have to know what this cold box of goodness was so he opened it up and stole the card? Yep, that’s probably what happened. That’s what we’ll assume considering each order at eCreamery is checked once, twice, three times to make sure we are shipping what was intended. We never make mistakes ;)

The card that was intended to accompany the gift read:

JESSICA!!! I know I’m early but you know how I’m horrible about waiting when it comes to giving gifts. HAPPY BIRTHDAY. I hope you like the flavor. I chose flavors and mixes that reminded me of you!!! XOXOXO Happy Birthday XOXOXO ~your friend

We let Jessica know what the card read and who it was from and this is what she had to say:

Dear ECreamery,

This is the best gift ever!!!! I am a major ice cream lover…and I like to think I am a pretty good ice cream critic! Not only is this the cutest gift idea, but also the packaging is beyond adorable and the ice cream is AMAZING! Its really creating your dream flavors and it actually tastes like a dream!!!! Thank you for this great idea, this great product, and this great company! I can’t wait to give this as a gift for someone soon….after all, I know how wonderful it is being the recipient! All my best and thanks and more! Jessica Prince

Best Ice Cream Birthday Gift Ever

Custom Birthday Ice Cream Flavor: Premium Coffee & Sea Salt Gelatos with Dark Chocolate Chips & Brownie Bites Custom Name: xoxox The J.B.Prince xoxoxo

Hi Abby!

Here is a picture I took and shared with everyone!!!! I have one pint left as I am saving it to share with my best friend as she is the one who surprised me with this amazing gift! We are both new doctors – graduated from medical school back in June! And although we live in the same city, our schedules provide very little free time! So as much as I love the ice cream and its so hard keeping one pint untouched in the freezer, nothing is better than eating incredible ice cream with an incredible friend!!!! So when my bestie and I can plan a time to hang out, that’s when the ice cream will be finished! I cc’ed her to this email! What an incredible birthday gift!

And when we do meet up, we will be sure to take a picture or two!!!!

Thanks for everything! Xoxo, jp

In the meantime, Jessica sent us a pic of her and her bestie on Graduation Day! Congrats girls!! Thank you for letting eCreamery be a part of your friendship. These are the special moments that we love being a part of.

Jessica received a Custom Ice Cream Birthday Gift from her Best Friend

Best Friends on Graduation Day!
