FAQs & troubleshooting
Can I make a larger batch?
You can double the ingredients to make a larger batch of mango sticky rice ice cream.
My ice cream has ice crystals.
It's possible the ice cream melted too much before freezing, or your churning container wasn't cold enough.
Tip: Place the container that you plan to store the ice cream in into the freezer to chill beforehand.
Ensure that your churning container is frozen solid (a minimum of 8 hours or longer).
Can I make it vegan?
Use a coconut cream and coconut milk or plant-based milk to make it vegan.
