No Machine Needed: Easy Ice Cream!

icecream1Sure, it may be 20 below where you live, but every day is a good day for ice cream.

Since I only started to enjoy cooking (sometimes) last year, I don’t have any cool kitchen gadgets because I never needed them before. I still have an electric hand mixer and don’t see getting a stand mixer anytime soon.

I don’t have an ice cream maker so I’ve been on the lookout for an ice cream recipe that doesn’t need a machine and bingo, I found one.

I have a strong memory of when I was younger and my mom made homemade ice cream. This wasn’t by any means a regular occurrence but I thought it was the coolest thing and I still remember how good it tasted.

I really suck at letting the little hummingbird cook with me since I can get frazzled easily while cooking. I usually like to be left alone to do my thing. This time I let her help me but she mostly just ate the cream and mini chocolate chips, as did I.

There are so many flavors you can come up with for this recipe; crumbled brownies, nutella, chopped up cinammon rolls, layer the ice cream with chocolate syrup, add crushed cookies, etc, etc.

With the ice cream I made, I used mini chocolate chips and swirled in some peanut butter before freezing. It’s so good! Enjoy!

2 cups (1 pint) heavy cream

1 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk

1/2 -3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

1/2 cup peanut butter

1 tsp vanilla extract

Whip heavy cream to stiff peaks in large bowl. Whisk sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, and vanilla in large bowl. Fold in whipped cream. Swirl in the peanut butter.

Pour into a 2-quart container and cover. Freeze 10 hours or until firm. Store in freezer.

Sure if you’re like me and still have an electric hand mixer, you may think screw this, I have to mix it too long and my hand feels like it’s going to fall off.

Let it. It’s so worth it. Anyway, if your hand falls off, you still have another one.

2 cups (1 pint) heavy cream

1 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

3/4 cups crushed peanut butter oreos

1 bottle magic shell chocolate fudge

Whip heavy cream to stiff peaks in large bowl. Whisk sweetened condensed milk, crushed cookies, and vanilla in large bowl. Fold in whipped cream. Pour 1/4 of the ice cream mixture in a 2-quart container. Layer with 1/4 bottle of the magic shell. Repeat until mixture is layered. Freeze for 10 hours or until firm. Enjoy!
