  3. Place the canister into the ice cream maker, ensuring it is firmly settled.
  4. Pack around the canister completely with ice and rock salt. Alternate layers of ice and rock salt until full.
  5. Start churning the ice cream. When the churn stops moving, the ice cream is set and ready to eat.

Please note that the homemade no-cook ice cream must be cold to set properly. Be sure to monitor the ice cream while it churns and add more ice if needed.

Ice Cream Churning

Don’t Let The Ice Melt

It’s essential to keep an eye on the ice cream while it churns. On extremely hot days, the ice can melt too quickly, preventing the ice cream from setting. To ensure optimal results, stay nearby and add more ice as necessary. Consider using a large beach towel wrapped around the ice cream maker to slow down the melting process.

Enjoy your delicious homemade no-cook ice cream! If you have leftovers, store them in the freezer for future enjoyment.

Q1. Can I use low-fat milk instead of whole milk for making homemade ice cream?

A1. While you can use low-fat milk, keep in mind that it may result in a less creamy texture compared to using whole milk. Whole milk contributes to the richness and creaminess of the ice cream.

Q2. Can I substitute the sugar with a healthier alternative, such as honey or maple syrup?

A2. Yes, you can replace the sugar with alternative sweeteners like honey or maple syrup. However, be aware that this may alter the flavor and texture of the ice cream. Experiment with different sweeteners to find the taste you prefer.
