BUT WAIT! I don't have an ice-cream machine!! I made homemade ice-cream in 4 easy steps WITHOUT a machine!! YES, IT'S TRUE!!
Thanks to 50's Housewife on Facebook, I was introduced to Kevin and Amanda's recipe for homemade ice-cream without a machine. Which comes in pretty handy, since I, ya know, DON'T HAVE ONE. Here's how it works. The base for your ice-cream is 2 cups of heavy whipping cream and one can of Sweetened Condensed Milk. The rest is up to you...I decided to make a batch of Lemon Icebox Pie ice-cream (my fav!) and a batch of Apple Pie ice-cream (Hubby's fav!).
Here's how I did it:
Homemade Lemon Icebox Pie ice-cream WITHOUT a Machine
For the Lemon Icebox pie ice-cream. I added 1tsp lemon extract, 3tbs melted butter, and 1/2 cup of graham cracker crumbs to the base recipe.
Beat the cold heavy cream (2 cups) in your stand mixer or with electric beaters or by hand if you are so inclined until stiff peaks form. Basically it will be thick whipped cream.
In a separate bowl, combine the condensed milk and your flavor ingredients. In this case, the lemon extract, melted butter, and graham cracker crumbs. Stir to combine.
Fold the whipped cream and flavored condensed milk together gently so you don't deflate the whipped cream.
Pour into a Tupperware or Ziploc storage container and freeze. Done. Seriously, that's it.
Here's June bursting with excitement when I showed her our "treat" for the night. It's usually a slice of 15-grain bread with a bit of Nutella on it. She was pleasantly surprised.
The next recipe was done a little differently. For the Apple Pie ice-cream, I used 1 small apple, 2Tbs sugar, 2Tbs brown sugar, 1tsp vanilla extract, and 3Tbs butter.
Homemade Apple Pie ice-cream WITHOUT a Machine
Chop the apples into small chunks. Throw in a pot with the sugars, vanilla, and butter. Cook over a medium heat until bubbly and thick. Remove from heat, chill in the fridge. While it's chilling, beat your heavy cream until stiff peaks form, put in fridge until the apples are ready to go.
Once the apples are chilled, mix in the can of evaporated milk.
Fold in with the whipped cream, pour in Tupperware or Ziploc container and freeze.
This is a dangerous concept, no?
