Update - ice cream - no machine

Thanks to the several of you who were interested enough in this to leave a comment. I just repeated the recipe with a flavor variation, and, more important, a simplification. I was using the mixer (hand-held) pretty much as frequently as I would stir a batch of granita or ice milk. Turns out it was not necessary. This time the ice cream mix got buzzed up just 3 times. Details below. Below is the plan in two sections. First, the basic ingredients and, second, the variations to yield a different flavor.

Ice cream base
16 oz heavy cream
16 oz fat free half-and-half
16 oz fat free sweetened condensed milk
2 Tbs vanilla extract
1 vanilla bean, sliced lengthwise, insides scraped into mixture

use only 1 Tbs vanilla and
2 Tbs orange extract
zest of an orange, very finely chopped
2/3 package Pepperidge Farm Milano cookies, broken or chopped into small pieces
2 heaping Tbs low sugar orange marmalade (mine was Smuckers)

Put cream, half, etc., condensed milk, 1 Tbs vanilla extract, 2 Tbs orange extract and bean scrapings into a round 8 cup Tupperware container. Mix together with a whisk. Place in the freezer.

1 1/2 hrs later, mix together with hand-held electric mixer, paying attention to the side where it will be at its thickest. Place back in the freezer for 2 hours.

Mix again with electric mixer, then stir in marmalade and Milano cookie bits. Allow to freeze completely, about 2 more hours.

Your ice cream looks so creamy even without using the ice cream maker! Well done!

Will have to try this. I like that it's not loaded with sugar!

Jenn said...

As I have told you before, I am a HUGE fan of creamsicles... I cannot wait to try this!

this is so helpful! I can't afford an ice cram maker but I love homemade ice cream!

This will come in handy since our ice cream maker requires the bowl to be placed in the freezer for 24 hours first. Hard to be spontaneous with that kind of prep time

MMmmmmmmmmmm!!! We've been on an ice-cream making kick this summer, with the machine our friend gave us. Probably explains why we've also been on a running kick this summer! ;) (So I can eat more ice cream!)

You are very thorough! I hope your salad turned out well. I'm sorry it has taken me so much time to get back to you. We've been in Charlotte and time was very hard to find. Have a great weekend. Blessings...Mary
