Delicious Ice Cream Recipes

No ice cream machine? No worries.

Most of these recipes assume that you have an ice cream machine at home. If you don’t have one you can still make these desserts. Simply follow the instructions to make the ice cream base then add directly to your freezer instead of churning in an ice cream maker. Remove the ice cream after half an hour and whip it until smooth. Now place back in the freezer to continue hardening. Repeat the whipping step every half hour until hard. The final result will be really good ice cream!
