I am using 35% whole cream and 3.25% whole milk to make my home made ice cream and it leaves a greasy aftertaste. How can I improve this?

  • glucose de 46,
  • skim milk powder
  • modified cornstarch
  • sugar
  • cream cheese
  • 35% cream
  • 3.25 milk

    We'd need to see your whole recipe to answer beyond the rather obvious "use less cream or use light cream or half and half rather than heavy cream." Or use a lower percentage if you buy via percentage rather than descriptions (regional variance.) Please find the edit button and include the recipe and procedure. We don't want questions seeking a recipe as an answer, but we do fairly well on figuring out where a recipe or procedure looks wrong, if we have the recipe or procedure in the question. Pre-chilling in the refrigerator before churning can also help. – Ecnerwal Jul 18 '16 at 1:13

    Not a list of ingredients - the recipe, including amounts and procedures. Please edit the question with that information. Cream cheese is also going to tend towards your "greasy after taste." – Ecnerwal Jul 18 '16 at 13:51
  • I have put the ingredients you listed into the question, please edit to add amounts of each and your procedure. – Ecnerwal Jul 18 '16 at 14:00

    From the punctuation in your ingredient clarification post, I'm unclear on what is meant by "cream cheese 35% cream": are you talking about the us commercial food product called "cream cheese" e.g. Philadelphia brand, etc.? As Ecnerwal says, it sounds like a possible source of "greasy aftertaste". For comparison purposes, have you tried any recipes that don't include this ingredient? – Lorel C. Jul 18 '16 at 15:16

I'd find a recipe without cream cheese.

You can make ice cream with all the other ingredients without it being greasy, assuming "glucose de 46" is just glucose. Cream cheese can be greasy, though, so it's almost certainly the culprit. (I suppose you should also check that you're using the right kind, i.e. not using full-fat when the recipe calls for low-fat.)

There's not really a lot of point trying to modify the existing recipe to remove it; you'd have to look at other recipes to get the right ratios anyway, so you might as well just make one of those other recipes.
