Making ice cream
without an ice cream maker

Step 1

Decide on the flavor of ice cream you want to make

Step 2

Find a suitable recipe, get the ingredients, make up the mixture

Step 3

Pour your freshly prepared mixture into a fairly wide bowl and put in your refrigerator to chill for between 1 and 2 hours. How long will depend upon whether you've actually heated up or cooked any of the ingredients when making the mixture.

Step 4

Remove from the refrigerator and put into your freezer for 30-40 minutes.

Step 5

Take the bowl out and check the state of the mixture - it should have started freezing from the outside edges in but not be fully frozen in the centre of the bowl.

Step 6

Place the bowl onto a work surface and beat the mixture well, breaking up any ice crystals and making it smooth again.

Step 7

Put the bowl back into your freezer and wait another 30-40 minutes.

Step 8

Repeat steps 5 through to 7

Step 9

Repeat steps 5 and 6

Step 10

Put the bowl back into the freezer for the final time and check every 30 minutes or so until your ice cream is frozen and ready to eat.

Once your mixture is prepared you can blend/freeze as you prefer:
