I scream you scream we all scream for an ICE CREAM!

If there is one thing that does not change for us since childhood, it definitely is our love for ice cream. It only grows instead. It is ironic how ice cream is a companion of depressed individual (girls usually resort to ice cream after a terrible break up) and in some cases it just adds to the mood of celebrations. Did you know the U.S. produces the most ice cream in the world and in fact they have a day assigned (3rd July) on which they celebrate national ice cream day. If we all love ice cream so much, then why don't we prepare it at home? Probably because, to many it seems like a tough task to make it, right? Well... not really. Without the use of fancy ice cream maker machines one can easily make ice cream. All you need is a freezer, a blender and a ceramic or glass bowl. Easy right. So, what are we waiting for, let's get started.

Making Ice Cream without using an Ice Cream Maker

Ice Cream on Sticks

You Will Need...
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • Bowl of whipped cream
  • Small glasses
  • 5 ice cream sticks
  • Vanilla essence
This is a very simple recipe to make ice cream on sticks. I have taken orange juice here, you can go in for any flavor you like. It could be strawberry juice, pomegranate is a good option and so is cranberry. Whatever juice you decide; pour it in small glasses and place a stick in there. Refrigerate it until it is converted into ice. Now, to the bowl of whipped cream add a few drops of vanilla essence and beat it, until it develops a thick consistency. Pour it over the ice candy and enjoy it to the fullest. Ice candies would serve as a very good dessert idea for your kid's birthday party as well. They are also a healthy option, as they have less fats compared to the normal ice cream.

Quick and Easy Ice Cream

You Will Need...
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 can condensed milk (sweetened)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup grated dark chocolate
  • 1 bowl chocolate chips
In a large microwave bowl, combine grated chocolate, butter and 1 cup condensed milk. Microwave the bowl at full power for about 10 seconds. Then stir. If the mixture hasn't melted properly, continue microwaving until it melts completely. Make sure you keep it for 10 seconds every time, because there is every possibility that the mixture might burn. Once the mixture is infused into each other properly, let it cool. The amount of butter in here can vary as, it is the ingredient that gives the ice cream its creamy texture.

In a separate bowl whip the cream until stiff peaks are formed. You can use an electric mixer, it just makes the whisking part easy. Once you reach the desired consistency, spoon the mixture out and combine it with the chocolate mixture. Gently fold the mixture. (Folding is a way of combining the various ingredients to attain a certain texture). Add chocolate chips when you are done with combining it well. In the meanwhile just freeze a shallow bowl in the freezer.

Place the mixture in the cold bowl and freeze it for an hour. Check it after an hour, it will start freezing at its edges. Now, remove it and break up the partially frozen mixture and stir well until smooth and creamy. Repeat this process some 5-6 times every 30 minutes so as to not let the ice cream turn into ice. The point is to freeze it until firm but not hard as ice. However, avoid over beating it, as that would harden the entire mixture. If in case the mixture becomes too hard, place it in the refrigerator until it becomes smooth again. Enjoy the creamy yummy ice cream.

You can have several variations to the above ingredients, you can add fresh chopped fruits instead of chocolate chips, or caramel sauce, or even chopped nuts taste fantastic. If you do not relish the chocolate flavor much, omit the chocolate part from the above method and add vanilla beans or an espresso coffee to have the respective flavors. Enjoy!!!
