Ice Milk is a smooth, sweet frozen dessert very similar to ice cream. It has less milk fat and fewer milk solids than ice cream.
It is made the same way as ice cream, but is usually made from skim milk. Consequently, it has fewer calories, but is also less creamy.
It also has a lighter texture, because the less butterfat in the milk, the coarser the ice crystals that will form, consequently the mixture has to be beaten more than ice cream to make it smooth.
In America, Ice Milk will be 3 to 6 % milk fat, 11 to 14% milk solids, 12 to 15% sugar.
In Canada, the milkfast content will be 3 to 5%.
