How can I make ice cream at home?

Is the temperature where you are slowly rising? In that case, you will need something cold and refreshing to avoid the heat. And ice cream sounds more than good enough, right? However, you may not want to go out just to buy a tub of ice cream but that does not mean that you will deprive yourself of your cravings. Instead, you can make your own homemade ice cream with less than 5 ingredients and no special equipment. Yes, you do not need to have an ice cream maker machine! Here’s how: 

Ingredients: 

2 cups of cold heavy whipping cream 

1 can of cold sweetened condensed milk (your choice of fat-free or regular)

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (optional) 

Instructions:

Using a hand or stand mixer, whip the cold cream on medium or high speed until soft peaks start to form. Stop whisking or turn off the machine, and pour the cold condensed milk into the whipped cream. Whisk again to high until the mixture becomes thicker and stiffer peaks form. Turn off the machine and stir in the vanilla extract. This is your ice cream base. 

You can then freely choose your flavors or toppings. You can add some sprinkles of fruits like strawberries and bananas. Once you finish with your flavors, transfer your ice cream mixture into an airtight container, and freeze overnight before eating.

How do you make homemade ice cream without cream?

A good homemade ice cream should satisfy your cravings. No, you do not need a fancy ice cream maker to make your own dessert. And if you are following a strict diet or currently on a weight loss journey, then do not worry because you can make delicious ice cream even without cream! You just need very little ingredients such as: 

  • 500 ml of milk
  • 5 tablespoons of sugar 
  • Vanilla essence (optional) 

Instructions:

Pour the milk on glass jars and rest in the freezer for a few hours. Pour it into a blender then add sugar and essence, then stir. Do this for a maximum of two minutes until your mixture turns creamy. And that is your ice cream base. Feel free to add your own desired flavorings and toppings (including fruits and nuts!). 

If you want more flavor to your ice cream base, then you can use yogurt. You just need to whisk an egg white for a few minutes until it turns creamy. Then mix into a 500g of low-fat plain yogurt a little at a time. You can add a few tablespoons of honey if desired. If you do have an ice cream maker, you can directly put it in the machine and transfer it to the freezer.
