    I made this, but didn’t get to eat until the next night. But it’s so hard and I can’t get it out of the mason jar! Help!!

    • LowCarbingAsian

      Hi Paula! Unfortunately, that’s what happens with the mason jar ice cream when over-frozen. The only thing you can do is wait for it to thaw.

  2. Hello! How much is considered a serving? 1 cup?

  3. Hi, is it best after 3 or 4 hours of freezing?
    Btw, I made the coconut macadmia chocoate chaffles this past weekend and they were a HUGE hit!

    • LowCarbingAsian

      Hi Angela! It’s best right around 3 hours depending on your freezer. If you leave it in for too long, it becomes really hard to scoop out. And glad you like the coconut mac choc waffles!
