Everybody loves ice cream. No matter your age, social status or citizenship, ice cream will always have a special place in your heart. The wide range of flavors is one of the best things about it. You can choose the classic vanilla flavor or be bold with candied bacon ice cream. It seems that you can make ice cream out of anything these days.
Homemade ice cream has many benefits. First, you get to personalize the flavor. It’s up to you to decide what you put into your ice cream. Another is that you are certain of the ingredients going into your dessert. You have the power to choose the freshest milk and the tastiest fruit. You can even make sugar-free, low-fat and organic ice cream.
If you don’t have an ice cream maker at home, then your arm and spatula would be your tools of the trade. Here are five easy steps to making your own ice cream:
1) Chill your ice cream mixture over an ice bath.
2) Pour your mixture into a durable freezer-friendly container and place it inside your freezer.
3)Â After around 45 minutes, check on your ice cream. If you begin to see ice crystals form at the edges, remove it from your freezer. With a spatula or whisk, stir it around vigorously until all frozen sections are broken up. Then, place it back into the freezer.
4) Do this every 30-45 minutes.
5) In about 2 to 3 hours, your ice cream would be ready.
It’s that simple to make ice cream without an ice cream maker. Just be sure to really put your strength into whipping up you ice cream and it would come out rich and smooth.
