QUESTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE NO CHURN ICE CREAM
Q: Do I need full fat coconut milk?
A: Yes! Avoid using light, or low fat coconut milk. You want the fat to add flavor to this ice cream
Q: What about other milk? Cow, almond or goat?
A: Ok ok, I never made ice cream with goat milk. I have made it with full fat cow’s milk with success. I have made it with almond milk with zero success because of the low fat content. My tip: make sure your recipe uses a full fat base.
Q: Can I subistutute marionberries?
A: Yes! Use whatever berry you have on hand. Fresh or frozen.
Q: Can I use another sweetener than sugar?
A: Yes, go ahead. Use honey, agave, etc. I like white can sugar because it is mild and I have it on hand.
Q: I don’t have a loaf pan, can I use something else?
A: Yes! Use any freezer safe container. If you use a standard loaf pan, the no churn ice cream will come up about half way. If you want a full loaf pan of no churn ice cream, double this recipe.
Q: What can I serve this ice cream with?
Q: If I don’t churn it, won’t it turn icey?
A: Well, kinda. This ice cream won’t have the consistency like the traditional ice cream. It will be kinda like a slushy consistency. But! Still delicious and great for someone who does not have an ice cream maker. See below for an up-close of the no churn ice cream
Served this solo or with homemade cookies. The best choice: make ice cream sammies with this no-churn ice cream recipe! Perfect (and healthier) for your summer nights. Oh, add sprinkles! Nuts! Chocolate chunks!
