I don't have an ice cream maker, but I've seen recipes for frozen custards and other treats that don't use them? Wondering if that's possible and if so do you have a recipe?
Lately, I've been into No Churn Ice Cream recipes, even though I have an ice cream maker.
You can make any ice cream recipe without an ice cream maker using this method. It comes out nice and creamy. http://www.couldntbeparve.com/2011/11/coffee-ice-cream-and-how-to-make-great-ice-cream-without-an-ice-cream-maker/
If you add a small amount of gelatn or possibly pectin if it is a dairy free recipe, it will sta creamy. Also a nice amount of half and half or heavy cream with some egg yolks will help keep it from getting too icy if its not churned. I made the naked chocolate ice cream from food52 by drbabs, and this ice cream seems like it would do well without being churned because the base is sooooo rich and delicious! Hope this helps!
If you have a KitchenAid, I have a fabulous ice cream maker attachment/bowl that whips up beautiful ice cream in a flash. I managed to get two of them for my birthday, and really, who needs two ice cream makers. The spare is for sale, if you're interested!
I recently had Nigella's No Churn Expresso Ice Cream at a friend's house, and immediately made some for our household. It is delicious, and you can easily substitute liquids and ingredients for other flavors. http://www.nigella.com...
I have a delicious tasting strawberry yogurt 'ice cream' posted. Doesn't get any easier.
