This week I got a bee in my bonnet. It happens a lot – I’d say I get a weekly bee and once it is in there I just can’t get it out! Well this week, can you guess what the bee was? Yep, it was to make homemade ice cream with no ice cream maker – no churn ice cream as they call it!
If you have been following here for a while, then you will know I am all about that #nokitchentools life. But alas, this week I caved and bought a hand mixer…I’m so glad that I did because this is my new favourite little toy! I figured that if I was going to make homemade ice cream with no ice cream maker, then I had better have something to help me out! Lucky timing for me, this little KitchenAid Hand Mixer was on sale at Canadian Tire so I scooped it up.
So, how to make ice cream at home? I scoured the internet for no churn homemade ice cream recipes and found that most of them were pretty similar so I went to it. Honestly, I had pretty low hopes with this. I’ve made frozen yogurt before and I am the first to admit that the texture kinda sucked (it was freezer burn-y) so I was half expecting that same icy texture again.
SO happy to report that this no churn ice cream recipe is incredible! The texture is perfect and it is truly truly truly the most delicious ice cream I have ever eaten! The only downside is that it this not an overly healthy option. I always like to offer a slightly healthier option than the norm when I share recipes here, but, since it was my first time making homemade ice cream I wanted to stick with what I knew to be safe. So, if this is your first time trying to make ice cream too, I might suggest the same – these milky products almost guarantee success! Saying this, I am going to experiment with some coconut milk recipes to hopefully make something delicious that has a bit less sugar. For now, I am practicing ‘everything in moderation’ and enjoying this stuff (the real deal!), because it is really darn good! Deeming this a no churn ice cream success!
Okay. Enough chatting, let’s get to the recipe!
