Making Ice Cream Without Using Sugar

A friend asked me recently how to make sugar free ice cream.

To be honest, I knew there was more than one answer, the most obvious being to use artificial sweetners. However, I don't favor that option - I would rather use natural ingredients if possible.

Honey and maple syrup are the obvious subsitutions but the texture of the ice cream can be effected if you don't redress the balance of solids in the ice cream ingredients. As with most things in cookery, a little experimentation is usually required to get the balance right but the reward of your patience is an exciting new way to make ice cream!
