    Okay..I have no goats yet but reading these recipes are making my mouth water! LOL I can not stand having to be "pateint" and wait to get goats..lol

    I don't own an ice cream maker so anyone care to share favorite brands?? Or any brands I should steer clear of?

    Goats or no goats, I'm buying an ice cream maker this weekend! ha ha

    Also...my husband's grand ma is lactose intolerant and diabetic...when she heard I was getting my pen ready so I could get dairy goats she was VERY excited and now I have someone to chatter with in person about all these neat things I can't wait to try..but has anyone tried making goat's milk ice cream with artificial sweetener? If so would you care to share the recipe? Granny usually uses Sweet N Low for her sweetener and she hasn't had ice cream in over 9 years so if I can come up with a good one thats sugar free she'll be in heaven!

    I would probably use tevia instead of s-n-l but I know you can do it.

    Suzanne Somers makes a great sweetener called Somer sweet. My gma is a diabetic so she uses that alot. And there is a new baking product that is a 1:1 ratio used the same as sugar that is all natural. Or second was Sondra said Stevia would be much better for her than s&l.

    I recently bought an ice cream maker from Target for $70.00 and I LOVE it. It has a motor and a hand crank so I can use it with either. It is an "Aroma" brand. Has a wooden bucket and is a 4 qt machine.

    Thank you!! I buy Stevia here and have been trying to convert granny to it but so far it's a no go..lol But if I'm the one making the ice cream how's she to know what I used, lol

    I have heard of the Somersweet but haven't tried it yet..so far it gets good reviews from anyone I know who uses it so I may have to order some.

    And thanks a ton for a reccomendation on the ice cream maker...been searching amazon and such and there are tons to choose from..I'll definately look into the one you got from Target. Plus I can get that local, not have to order online so it will fill that "instant gratification" thing for me ha ha

    Not a problem at all. I love the Somersweet, and I ordered a case of it for my gma a couple months ago. It lasts forever and really I can not tell the difference between it and sugar.
