Now Eric are you indeed saying that the carbonated water would in fact curtle the milk causing it to turn? Just wondering! I will try it!!! Hmmm lets see what happens!I will try mixing powdered milk first! My ice cream I thought was vanilla, is stawberry cheesecake.. but it should be fine as I have strawberries, frozen ones, someone ate the rest of the fresh! I will check it tonight!I will do an experiment send you pics and you post pics ok Neil, then you tell me if my milkshake maker is what your talking about or like gaia said a blender, which I have also!

You could try these experiments for yourself if they still make "SodaStream" machines.

To quote Monty Pyton :  "Blessed are the cheesemakers !".  It is actually from a retired cheesemaker that I got part of the wisdom on dairy processes.  I combined what he told me with what I know about water soluble proteins (which I studied intensively in their function as binders).
The water soluble proteins in milk work as emulgators rather than as binders, but they are just as sensitive to pH changes.
It may be that the results will be slightly different when comparing fresh milk (straight from the cow), processed milk (you buy in the supermarket) or powdered milk.  Processed milk is "homogenized", but my cheesmaker friend tells me there are no additives involved.  It is just a mechanical proces to decrease the size of the fat droplets, in order to prevent the milk from separating into cream and skimmed milk on standing.  And it is possible to make cheese from homogenized milk.  Furthermore, I remember from my African days, when we had only powdered milk available, that you can make a kind of cottage cheese from powdered milk.
But all that is a long way from the carbonated milk Neil was after.
