    I LOVE this recipe!! It tastes like the Dairy Queen soft serve. It’s so smooth! This will definitely be my go to recipe for vanilla ice cream! I’ve made it 3 times already.

    I am so confused. I have followed the recipe to a T and I get nothing like ice cream. It is definitely a milk consistency. I have also tried the recipe used by the woman at Costco (with protein powder, etc.) and it comes out like milk. I see where you recommend freezing it, but when it was demonstrated, the woman didn’t have to freeze it at all. Is my unit defective? This is very disappointing. It seems like the only solution that’s been given is to freeze it or add more ice, when in actuality it seems like the unit is not working as demonstrated.
