Adding Tara Gum for a Smoother Ice Cream

Chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, or mango… No matter the flavor, we all can agree that ice cream is simply perfect. It’s cool, creamy, super-delicious, and just a pure delight to eat. Speaking of perfection, have you ever wondered what gives your favorite ice cream that dreamy, melt-in-your-mouth feel?  Its Tara gum.

Super Creamy Yummy Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe

This is a simple and easy to make, no-cooking recipe with the most delicious vanilla ice cream you have ever tasted. The secret to super creamy yummy ice cream is to use heavy cream, half-and-half or milk with a higher percentage milk fat, such as whole milk. If the ice cream is made with a lower percentage of milk fat, it will become icy. Adding Tara gum is the secret ingredient.
