Freeze ice cream maker insert per mfg. instructions. In a sauce pan or double boiler whisk the eggs. Then add the water, half cup of almond milk, sugar and salt. Whisk continuously while heating the mix to thicken and pasteurize the eggs. Remove from heat and cool, cover and refrigerate until chilled, best if left overnight. Dice, cube or mash your favorite ingredient and chill. See the list of ideas below.
