by Diana Lee

Low Carb, sugar free homemade ice cream is a luxury dessert for all occasions. I have developed 50 different flavors of ice cream using various oils, extracts and flavorings. Amaretto Peach, Banana Cream, Butterscotch, Cheesecake, Chocolate Mint, Eggnog, Grasshopper, Lemon, Peanut butter Dough, Raspberry, Vanilla, and Watermelon are just some of the flavors. You will also find sherbet and yogurt ice cream recipes, frozen desserts, floats, shakes and sodas. Miss those sweet after dinner drinks, well now you can have a Brandy Alexander, Pina Colada, Strawberry Daiquiri, and several other alcoholic drinks with the right combo of ice cream and alcohol. All recipes show protein and carb counts for your information and all are under 15 carbs per serving and most are around 5 carbs. Per serving.

I was disappointed in this book -- it was formulaic, with every recipe including a brand-name of gelatin, dried egg-white protein, and liquid sweetener. There is some suggestion on how to substitute these two products, but not enough detail to get the reader headed in the right direction. More alternative basic recipes, or more detailed explanations of substitutions, would have been helpful.

She could have printed one basic recipe, and made a matrix of additions with adjustments, in one or two pages.

Author also relies heavily on use of flavor extracts, instead of natural or whole ingredients. (I understand this can lower carbs, but).

Unfortunately this book is worthless to me.
It's interesting but it's not earth-shattering. I've had mixed results with the flavors, I'm not big into the artificial sweetener aftertaste and unfortunately had that with every batch. Some good ideas though! I guess it was just written before so many newer sweetening products were available.
In my ice cream maker it takes a lot less time than my regular Ice cream recipes. If you eat it right away the taste is good. However if you put it in an ice cream container for later get your hammer & chisel ready!!!
Making sugar-free ice cream is not easy. Sugar performs several functions; in addition to sweetening, it also helps to prevent the concoction from freezing rock-solid. Ms. Lee created an ice-cream recipe which incorporates powdered egg whites. They are costly (a small canister was $8) and I thought the results were not very good. Every recipe in this little book is just a variation of the one recipe.
Although I want to support anyone in the low-carb community, I can't recommend this book.
I am never disappointed by Diana Lee's awesome cookbooks and recipes. She fine points low carb food so well as to eliminate all the disappointments found in some other recipes I have found. (ie: texture, taste, etc.) I own all of her cookbooks and have never been disappointed in one recipe of hers that I have tried!
Diana has done it again with "Low Carb Ice Cream...Drinks and Desserts".
She begins with 3 pages of tips on making the best of your ice cream from freezing, and storing ideas to to explaining the ingrediants, where to find them and what they do. She even includes her email address should you have any questions and is awesome to respond to anyone who should need any advice or have questions.
Diana's new cookbook consists of 5 chapters packed full of yummy low carb recipes: Ice cream (over 50 recipes), Sherbet and Yogurt Ice Cream (10 recipes), Frozen Desserts (9 recipes), Drinks (24 recipes), and This and That ( 9 recipes)!
I especially love the sherbet recipes as I personally have an egg allergy and prior to this book, low carb ice cream was not in the cards for me.
My non low carb family LOVES the ice cream recipes and prefers the richness and flavor to the real thing! (I'll convert them all yet!)
hint:(if you write to Diana privately to request a cookbook, she'll even autograph it for you! .... )!!!!!!!
Thanks Diana for yet another in what I hope is a long string of "the BEST" low carb cookbooks available today!!
I own both of Diana Lee's other cookbooks and am happy with her new one as well. The ice cream is great tasting and easy to make. I don't have the worries of the sorbitol found in the other "low carb" ice cream you can buy in the store and the flavor is also much creamier since the alternatives seem to tout the low fat content which we don't want as low carbers! I'd highly recommend this book as well as the two others.
I already own both of Diana Lee's other books and was very pleased when she came out with this new one. I am happy to say that I was not disappointed. I am enjoying all the recipes and happy to see that the texture of the ice cream is close to the real thing! Love being able to have a delicious after dinner drink like Brandy Alexander without all the carbs! Thanks have done it again. T. Frields.
