For a maximum result, consider using a high-speed mixer when mixing the ice cream ingredients. If you don’t have a mixer, you can also use a blender. Or, you can also use a whisk. But, due to you having to mix it fast in relatively a long amount of time, this will probably make your hands sore very quickly, and as a result, the mixture won’t thicken.

3. Replace Iced Water with Milk

To make an ice cream with Pondan Magic Ice Cream, you will need a cup of ice water. However, if you want a more dense texture that;s highly nutritious, you can replace the ice water with 150 cc of cold fresh milk, or with 1-2 tablespoons of full cream milk powder that’s added into 150 cc of ice water. In addition, you can also add fruit jam so that the texture will become more creamy.

4. Add Flavoring Powder
