🍨 Homemade ice cream without an ice cream maker
If you have the room and budget to have an ice cream maker, they are great, but you can make ice cream without them.
Without an ice cream maker you would normally make up your ice cream mixture, pop it in the freezer, then take it out again to whip several times before it is ready ie the churning.
However there is a type of easy ice cream which doesn't need an ice cream maker or hand churning.
🥫 Condensed milk ice cream
The secret ingredient is condensed milk.
It makes a wonderfully creamy ice cream mixture that is whisked before it is frozen, but does not need to be churned,
You just pop it in the freezer until you are ready to eat it.
And the good news is you can now buy vegan condensed milk, which is coconut based.
🥫 Is condensed milk ice cream as good as regular ice cream?
Oh yes, it's just as good and so easy to make.
The only difference in my opinion is it needs to sit a little longer to soften before you scoop it than regular ice cream.
Here are the simple ingredients you need to make this delicious vegan ice cream.
🍊 Can I use orange essence?
No, you are really better to use fresh oranges.
It will give you the best flavour.
For extra flavour, add finely grated orange zest.
🍫 Make it chocolate orange ice cream
You will laugh. I meant to make this ice cream orange choc chip, but forgot to add the chocolate chips.
If you would like too add them, fold them in once the mixture is whipped and ready to pour into your container.
🌡️ Which containers are best for freezing homemade ice cream
Any freezer-friendly container will do.
I tend to use a loaf tin, but you could use a glass casserole dish, re-use an ice cream tub, or just some tupperware.
If your container doesn't have a lid, you could just cover the orange ice cream with cling film.
Just make sure it's suitable to use in the freezer.
