  • I am allergic to milk. I can use coconut milk combined with soy or almond milk in place of the half and half, but can I leave out the sweetened condensed milk?

  • Tried this and was the best mint chocolate chip ice cream I’ve ever had! Even threw in 1/4 of an avocado as suggested by a blendtec rep and it made it even creamier!!

  • Can you use regular ice cubes instead of whole milk cubes? If so, should i use less ice cubes and maybe more half and half or condensed milk?

    Doni on

  • You can but it won’t be as sweet. You could also try replacing it with coconut cream.

  • Can I substitute milk cubes for eggnog cubes?

    Annie Lee on

  • You can but you’ll want to add more milk which, in turn, may require more ice cubes.

    Blendtec on

  • You can but mint and eggnog flavors don’t taste the best mixed. If you left the peppermint extract out, it would probably be pretty tasty! We recommend trying the eggnog cubes as a substitute for milk cubes in this recipe: http://www.blendtec.com/rec…

  • Everytime I make ice cream with my blendtec, it never makes the correct ice cream texture. I follow the instructions carefully but it never turns out like ice cream.

    Betty Beirne on

  • This recipe is perfect! No modifications needed. Just follow and enjoy – we sure did!

    Lisa Bernadette on

  • This is refreshingly delicious but very soupy. I follow the recipe directly to the "T" and after freezing it still doesn’t come out thickly softserve. What am I doing wrong? I blend in my twister jar.

    JourneyNC on

  • It will come out more like a soft serve but you can freeze it for a few hours until it hardens up like ice cream you’d buy at the store.

    Blendtec on

  • This is refreshingly delicious, but I have yet to get it more creamier. It is somewhat soupy after 2 tries with this current recipe using the Twister Jar. Any suggestions as I have frozen it after blending.

  • I am so blown away. What a great idea- spinach vs food coloring dye. Not only do you avoid the dye, you sneak in something good for you. I can’t wait to try this.
