How to Make Ice Cream Without a Machine

Jules Clancy with some good news. You can make wonderful ice cream at home without an ice cream maker.

Simple Lemon Ice Cream

Ever dreamed of being able to make amazing ice cream at home? Thought about investing in a fancy ice cream machine, but struggled to justify the expense? Well, the good news is you can make wonderful ice cream at home WITHOUT a special ice cream maker.

A few years ago, I spent a lot of money on an ice cream machine. And while we had some good times together, I knew there had to be an easier way to make the luscuious ice cream treats I love so much.

So after much trial and error, I came up with a method for making ice cream, without my machine. It works a treat. So good in fact that I’ve since ditched my bulky machine, and now just make ice cream this way. All you need is a home freezer and a whisk to whip cream. So what are you waiting for?

Lemon Ice Cream
 
Feel free to play around with the citrus, lime would be lovely, if a little more expensive. This recipe has quite a lemony tang, if you’d prefer your lemon to be a little more subtle, you could easily reduce the juice down to ¼ cup.

    I’ve dreamed of that silky homemade ice cream. But I don’t have an ice cream maker, my kitchen is so tiny and no place for it. Thank you so much for sharing this. I can’t wait to try it.
