19 Delicious Ice Cream Recipes You Can Make Without A Machine

No churn, no problem.

Posted on

Making ice cream without a machine is way simpler than you might think.

You will need an electric mixer (or a strong whisking arm), but otherwise it doesn't take any fancy equipment. And it definitely doesn't have to involve a ton of bags full of ice and salt. Basically, you just whip cream with condensed milk and any flavorings you want, and then freeze. The mixture freezes to a smooth, creamy consistency that you can scoop just like churned ice cream.
