Q: Is this product
Trim Healthy Mama friendly?
A: YES! In ½ cup serving of our prepared ice cream there is approx. 1 NET CARB in the Vanilla flavour and 2 NET CARBS in the Chocolate! Enjoy your ice cream and lose weight at the same time!
Q: Can I use a lower fat content cream in the recipe?
A: Usually No. You have to be able to whip the cream to get the desired volume.
Q: Why is there icy liquid on the bottom of the ice cream after I freeze it?

A: You can now buy 35% Lactose Free Whipping Cream! I have now seen at least two different brands in the grocery store.
Q: How long does it take to freeze?

A: It is delicious and you can eat it before it reaches the freezer. It tastes like mousse.

A: We have tested it by keeping it as long as eight months in the freezer and it still tasted great!
Q: Can I substitute Cool Whip, Nutri-Whip, or Dream Whip for the 35% whipping cream in the recipe?
A: No, because they all contain sugar and would make the ice cream too sweet!
Q: Can I use just one half the package of powder mix at a time?
A: Yes you can. Just cut the amount of water and cream in half as well.
Q: Are there any preservatives in the powder mix?
A: No there isn’t.

Q: Can I use this product if I’m gluten intolerant?
A: Yes there is no gluten in the powder mix.
Q: Can I use my blender to make the ice cream if I don’t have a hand mixer?

Q: Can I take this on a camping trip?
A: Yes you can, but if you like it frozen then you need some way of freezing it.
Q: Can I add extra liquid flavouring to the powder mix when I’m whipping it?
A: If you want to add any liquid (ie: Maple Syrup, Coffee, Liquid flavouring, etc.) then just substitute it for some of the water the powder mix calls for.
Q: Do I have to store the powder mix in the refrigerator or freezer?
A: No, just on a shelf or drawer will do.

A: At least two to three years.

Q: Do you have any sugar-free products?
A: Yes, it is made with Xylitol. See our Products page.
Q: Why didn’t the mix whip up into peaks like it’s supposed to?
A: If the whipping cream is too old then it won’t whip properly. Take your carton back to the store and they should replace it for you. I have had brand new whipping cream not whip and it was the manufacturer’s fault.
Q: Is the ice cream still edible if it didn’t whip up like it’s supposed to?
A: Yes, you just won’t have as much volume, but it is still very edible.
Q: Do I need to put the mixer blades or bowl in the freezer ahead of time to make the mixture whip better?
A: You don’t have to, but it does make the cream whip up better.
Q: Can my friends who live overseas use this powder mix?
A: Yes, anyone who has access to a cow and it’s cream can make great Mousse. If they can freeze it—they will have great Gourmet Ice Cream!
Q: Can I use this powder mix as a gift?
A: Yes! It is a unique gourmet gift at a reasonable price. Great for giving a co-worker on any occasion, or slipping it into a gift basket. Using it as a Christmas Stocking stuffer is also a popular choice.
