I have an icecream maker and make homemade icecream. Any tips to make it less 'icy' and more creamy.
This is my recipe:
300ml pure cream
300ml full cream organic milk
3 tsp vanilla extract concentrate
some dark chocolate peices

I'm surprised it's icy with that recipe OP. Are you making and then eating? Or freezing before eating?

I use a custard base to make it more creamy and less icy.... So I make a basic custard recipe on the box.... Milk, sugar and custard powder.... Then I cool in the freezer til it's chilled then I blend in the ice cream maker with puréed fruit to flavour.

There is a guy called David Lebovitz who has awesome ice cream recipes on his website. My Cuisinart came with a recipe book that is also online and I see the basic recipe I use has twice as much cream as milk, which I guess would make it less icy.

I use a custard base, with lots of egg yolks. I find that much richer and creamier than a milk/ cream base.
It is a bit more work though.

Re: Homemade icecream
I don't have an icecream maker, but here is an awesome icecream recipe I got from a friend that doesn't require one:
-peel banana (over-ripe is best)
-wrap banana in gladwrap & alfoil & place in freezer
-leave for a day to freeze
-remove from freezer & blend in blender or food processor until creamy
-serve & eat immediately
I think I might try adding some cream & vanilla extract next time to see if I can re-freeze it & keep some in the freezer...

I make mine in the kitchen aid with this basic vanilla recipe (just add fruit or extras at the end) but if you want extra creamy ice cream replace the milk part with more thick cream (35% fat) the more fat the creamier it will be!
600ml full cream milk (I use A2)
6 large egg yolks
¾ cup castor sugar
1 fresh vanilla bean, spilt in half and seeds removed.
300ml thickened cream
