    1. Hello, Sven,

      thanks for your question. The recipe does have a slightly higher water content and without a binder it will be relatively hard in the freezer. However, not everyone has the various binders at home and the recipe works just fine for me without a binder. Especially if you eat it the same day 😉 If you still want to modify it to be able to store it longer, I would start with 20g dry glucose, 18g skim milk powder and 1g locust bean gum. But maybe you have already done a test yourself?

      Kind regards
