Homemade Ice Cream - Best Ideas


Ice cream is the perfect dessert. It’s great to eat on its’ own, but just as good served with a slice of cake. You can buy it in the stores, but we are here to tell you how to make homemade ice cream.

Ice cream is usually made from dairy products, but you can get vegan versions as well which are made out of soy, almond, cashew, coconut or rice milk.

You can make ice cream in different ways, either using an electric ice cream maker or without. It is a little more complicated to make without an ice cream maker but doesn’t let that put you off. Here we will give you some homemade recipes which have been made in both ways.

Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe Without a Machine

The first thing you have to do is freeze a container for your ice cream; a stainless steel container is best as it won’t break. In a bowl stir together 2 cups of single cream with 2 cups of whipping cream. Add a cup of sugar and 2 tablespoons of vanilla extract. Keep stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Freeze this for 30 minutes and then whisk with a hand mixer. Keep doing this until the ice cream is frozen. You will end up with smooth and creamy ice cream.

Vanilla Ice Cream with a Machine

Heat a cup of whipping cream with 3 cups of single cream until it is simmering. In the meantime whisk together 8 egg yolks with a cup of sugar, vanilla extract and a pinch of salt. Pour half a cup of the cream mixture into the egg yolk mixture and keep whisking. Do this a few times and then whisk the whole mixture together for about 7 minutes over low heat. Allow to cool, refrigerate and then put it into the ice cream mixer. Once it’s frozen you will have the perfect vanilla ice cream.
