Why does my ice cream have a grainy texture?

I am looking for homemade ice cream that isn't grainy and in addition, does not leave a "slick" film in your mouth. I also, really don't want to add "commercial" additives, which, in my opinion, defeat the purpose of homemade ice cream. Having said that, I believe that the answer (other than vodka) lies somewhere else. I'd love to hear other opinions and if anyone has created the "perfect" homemade ice cream without a lot of additives, I would dearly love to hear it. Also, it is not necessary to go to a health food store to get Xanthan gum. It can be found in any food store that carries the Red Mills line of flours, grains, etc. Check it out....
