when i've been using my ice cream maker, which is a cuisinart kind with the frozen bowl that spins around a stationary plastic baton/scraper, to make soy-based and yogurt-based treats, there seems to be a ton of waste from the scraper not pulling all the frozen parts off the sides and bottom of the frozen bowl. i can't remember the problem being this severe with egg custard-based ice creams (but maybe i just don't remember). is it a texture/consistency issue with the new ingredients I'm using? would adding cookies or nuts to the mix help break up the side-frozen bits? is my blade somehow ill-fitted all of a sudden? anyone have a tried-and-true solution?
