There are several ways to make ice cream at home.

  • First blend all of your ingredients together, then freeze and serve.
  • You can go traditional by building a base with ingredients like whole milk, condensed milk or heavy cream for a rich flavour profile, or you can opt for low dairy options that utilize almond milk, oat milk or coconut milk to get a creamy consistency that’s lower lactose.
  • To make it your own, you can always mix in extra toppings later like cookie crumbles, brownie chunks, fudge, salted caramel or whatever else your heart desires. (Sugar-Free Naturally)
  • Make sure the mixture has thickened enough to coat your spatula before it’s ready to freeze.

PROS AND CONS OF MAKING ICE CREAM IN A BLENDER
Making homemade ice cream in a blender is one of the simplest ways to put together a classic frozen treat at home.

  • It’s quick and simple
  • It doesn’t require advanced knowledge or skills in the kitchen and it’s delicious
  • However, using the more straightforward blender recipe above, you may not get the same kind of slow churn as an ice cream machine. You’ll get more rapid blending, which can result in a slightly different texture than typical churned ice cream.
  • To avoid over-mixing your blender ice cream, look for a blender with a built-in setting that’s capable of starting the motor at a slower speed to pull ingredients carefully into the blade, then quickly increasing to the selected speed to avoid splatter.
