Blender Ice Cream is a great, alternative way to make ice cream at home without any fancy machines! See the how-to in today’s post.
We love homemade ice cream! We usually make it the old-fashioned way with ice and rock salt once or twice a year and it’s a fun activity for the kids. However, we like to eat ice cream wayyy more often than once a year and we have been loving this simple, no-fuss, blender method lately. This 5-ingredient blender ice cream takes the fuss out of homemade ice cream. As an added bonus, you don’t even have to wait for it to freeze!
Start with 5 simple ingredients. If you’re lucky you might already have all of them on hand. You’ll need half & half, milk, sugar, frozen triple berry blend, and some vanilla.
Give it a whirl, until it is uniform throughout and the texture is smooth. You may need to add a little more milk or half & half if necessary to get it to blend completely.
You can serve this right out of the blender for a soft-serve consistency ice cream, or you can freeze it for a few hours if you like a firmer consistency. It’s delicious either way and a perfect quick frozen treat!
It’s the perfect time of year to enjoy this treat. It will cool you down and give you bonus points with whomever you serve it to!
Serves: 4-6 servings
- 1 cup half & half
