i hear apple is good. One of the best handmade ice creams i ever had was with good peppermint chunks in some super fat creamery.
Try salty things that set off the sweet and fresh to balance the super fat.

This is my favorite kulfi recipe, the one negative review notwithstanding. That reviewer is an idiot, imo.

It's quick and you don't have to cook anything though you do have to chill the ingredients ahead of time- I just keep them in the fridge year round just in case.

I skip the strawberries.

You can use the same base recipe for cinnamon ice cream, too, which I like with apple pie and things like that.

Also, you can use non-fat sweetened condensed milk and evaporated milk and I haven't really noticed the difference. Probably because of the half quart of whipped cream :)

Something with cheese and berries... mascarpone or ricotta, maybe, and mixed berries... like strawberry, blueberry, rasberry?

We make mexican hot chocolate ice cream in the fall with plenty of cayenne. It's awesome. If I remember, I'll post the recipe when I get home tomorrow.

Honest to god, five minutes earlier I came across this slightly squicky CNN poll. On the front page. In the middle of the largest financial upheaval of my life. OMGWTFCNN

I've got one of those, and I'll tell ya it's hard to beat just fresh squeezed orange juice.

Was it a competition with fresh squeezed orange juice? Kind of apples and pears there. Yeah, fresh squeezed is totally delish.

But kulfi!!! oooooh!

At the place I work, my boss (a chef who worked at MANY big restaurants and hotels) picks things off the shelf to make ice creams, sorbets and gelatos. Olive Oil sorbet is surprisingly good. Green Tea ice cream was yummy. Espresso even better. Blueberry gelato was delicious. Creme brule was decadent. etc, etc, etc.

Go freakin nuts
