Fulfill Your Ice Dream with These Homemade Ice Cream Recipes
With the upcoming National Ice Cream Day on July 18th, we have listed down some easy homemade ice cream recipes for all our readers with a sweet tooth. Making homemade ice cream is a luxury treat since the possibilities for z personalizing tastes and experimenting with new component combinations are infinite. Try producing ice cream in a blender for a simple way to make your ice cream. It just takes a few minutes to prepare the mixture and an hour to freeze it, so you can have any flavor of ice cream in under an hour. While homemade ice cream can be chilly at times, there are a few ingredients and methods that can help prevent this, resulting in a smoother, creamier frozen delicacy at home.
Simple Steps to Make Ice Cream in a Blender:
- Milk, ice cubes, sugar, and vanilla essence are all you need to make basic ice cream. For a fuller texture, some recipes call for heavy cream.
- Blend all of your ingredients in a blender (like the Acekool Blender BC1), exactly like you would for a smoothie or milkshake.
- Place the mixture in a freezer-safe container and freeze for about an hour. If you like a soft-serve texture, you won't have to wait nearly as long to enjoy your ice cream.
- Clean-up will be simple, which is nearly as thrilling as the ice cream itself. Simply store the materials, clean the blender, and run the dishwasher.
- If you have any leftovers, keep them frozen for later use.
5 Popular Ice Cream Recipes (Made Using a Blender)
Orange Ice Cream
This is the recipe to use if you don't have an ice cream machine and want to create lemon or orange ice cream.
- Fill the blender container with the cream and milk, as well as the sugar.
- After that, add the orange juice and zest and blend for about 30 seconds, or until everything is thoroughly combined. Avoid processing for too long, or the end product will turn to orange butter.
- Place the mixture in a metal pan and freeze for approximately an hour.
- Remove the frozen mixture from the freezer and whisk it with a spoon.
- Repeat this process two more times (twice in two hours.) The mixture will start to resemble ice cream in texture.

Berry Ice Cream
Two-ingredient ice cream is just frozen berries and heavy cream mixture into a soft-serve consistency. This delectable delicacy tastes just like ice cream, but without the additional sugar, eggs, or the need for an ice cream machine.
- Heavy whipping cream and one bag (10 ounces) of frozen berries (or any other frozen fruit) are required. Fresh fruit may also be used, but it must be chopped into 1 to 2-inch pieces and frozen before creating the ice cream.
- Fill the blender halfway with frozen fruit. Sprinkle the sugar on top of the berries in the blender if using.
- The only process/pulse the fruit until it is roughly chopped.
- Pour in the heavy cream and process just long enough to combine everything. As required, scrape down the sides with a spatula.
