Stir Up Oh-My-Stars-Good Recipes in Five Minutes or Less

From the first sizzling summer I remember to well into adulthood, warm weather gatherings meant hauling out the crank-driven ice cream maker and a big bag of rock salt. Dad let us kids crank while the going was easy, but as soon as the shaft began to stiffen, he'd take over with his big, strong arms. We'd all hover around, waiting for that first fluffy taste of ice-cold vanilla cream. Nothing so good!

Nowadays, we can make ice cream in counter-top appliances like the gorgeous, brilliantly red ice cream maker from Cuisinart, which is my personal choice of maker.

The Instructions in a Nutshell

It takes less than five minutes to stir up a batch of old fashioned vanilla, mint chocolate chip, pineapple sorbet, strawberry cream, or almost any other flavor.

  1. Chill bowl beforehand.
  2. Stir ingredients together. (That’s the 5-minutes-or-less part.)
  3. Chill for an hour.
  4. Relax 20 minutes while the machine does the work.
  5. Eat!

First-time using an ice cream maker like mine? You’ll find step-by-step instructions with pictures after the recipes.

Why Organic?

We use organic ingredients to avoid GMOs, to avoid hormones in our dairy products, and to protect the soil, water, and air, as well as the workers who plant, tend, and harvest the food we eat.

2) Creamy Frozen Yogurt

The yogurt gives the ice cream that delightful frozen-yogurt tang and makes it all the creamier; plus, you and your family benefit from the good enzymes and bacteria it contains.

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 1 hour 20 min
Ready in: 1 hour 25 min
Yields: 6 one-cup servings

Ingredients

  • 1 C plain, whole-milk, live-culture yogurt
  • 2/3 C raw organic cane sugar
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 1 Pint organic heavy whipping cream
  • 1 T organic vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Whisk the sugar and salt into the yogurt until dissolved.
  2. Add the cream and vanilla extract, stirring to combine.
  3. Chill covered, 1 hour, up to 24 hours.
  4. Freeze 20 minutes in ice cream maker, as directed in the how-to section earlier on this page.

Concerned about BPA and pthalates in your food?

Store your leftover ice cream in easy-to-scoop glass tubs. This set gives you three scoopable glass options for saving the leftovers. The tubs, with their silicone lids, freeze well, although you do have to handle any glass jar more carefully than plastic.

I store leftover ice cream in these scoopable glass containers

Anchor Hocking TrueSeal Glass Food Storage Containers with Lids, Green, 6-Piece Set
Anchor Hocking TrueSeal Glass Food Storage Containers with Lids, Green, 6-Piece Set

I tried various jars before I found these, and they are by far the best solution for ice cream.

Do remember, when freezing in glass, to leave a good 1/2-3/4 inch clearance at the top for expansion.

 

3) Gumdrop Confetti Ice Cream

This is a fun confection the little ones especially enjoy. I use Whole Foods Organic Gummy Bears from their bulk food section. The flavors absolutely pop when you bite into a piece, making the ice cream a treasure hunt for the best bites.

If you find the gum drops sticking to your blade, try dusting them with a little sugar periodically while chopping.

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 1 hour 20 min
Ready in: 1 hour 25 min
Yields: 6 one-cup servings

Ingredients

  • 1 C Whole Milk
  • 1/2 C Raw Sugar
  • Pinch Salt
  • 1 Pint Whipping Cream
  • 1 T Vanilla
  • 1/2 C Finely Chopped Gum Drops, plus 6-12 whole gumdrops for garnish
  • 2 T Raw Sugar
  • 1 t Orange Extract (Optional)
Little hands like to sneak tastes of the gumdrops while you're chopping, so watch that knife!

Instructions

  1. Whisk together milk, sugar, and salt till all is dissolved.
  2. Add cream, vanilla, and orange extract (if using) to milk mixture, and whisk till combined.
  3. Cover and chill 1 hour, up to 24 hours.
  4. Meanwhile, chop gum drops to very small pieces, dusting with the 2 T sugar as needed to keep them workable. Spread pieces on chopping block to dry a bit while the mixture chills. You want them not to clump when you add them to the ice cream mixture. Set aside.
  5. Freeze mixture 20 minutes in ice cream maker, as directed in the how-to section earlier on this page, slowly adding candy in last five minutes.
  6. Serve immediately, with one or two gummy bears or gumdrops for garnish. Freeze any leftovers in chilled air-tight containers.

5) Chocolate Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Make It With or Without Nuts

This is another of our favorites. The hardest part about making ice cream in the Cuisinart is deciding which flavor to make and what goodies to add! We like this one with nuts too—peanuts, almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, pecans. They're all good!

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 1 hour 20 min
Ready in: 1 hour 25 min
Yields: 6 one-cup servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 C Cocoa Powder (I like to use Dagoba Organic Chocolate Organic Cacao Powder. It's so good! It's also untainted by child slave labor and pesticides, as noted by the "fair trade" and "certified organic" labels.)
  • 1/2 C Raw Sugar
  • 1/4 C Loosely Packed Brown Sugar
  • Pinch Salt
  • 1 C Whole Milk
  • 1 Pint Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 T Vanilla Extract
  • 1 -2 Ounces Dark Chocolate
  • 1/2 C Chopped Nuts (Optional)

Instructions

  1. Whisk together cocoa, sugars, and salt, mixing thoroughly.
  2. Add milk, and whisk until dry ingredients are completely dissolved.
  3. Add cream and vanilla to milk mixture, and whisk to combine.
  4. Cover, and chill 1-2 hours, up to 24 hours.
  5. Meanwhile, shave 1-2 ounces organic dark chocolate and set aside.
  6. Freeze slurry 20 minutes in ice cream maker, as directed in the how-to section earlier on this page, slowly adding candy, and nuts if using, in last five minutes.
  7. Serve immediately. Will be soft-serve consistency. If prefer a firmer texture, pour into a bowl, cover, and freeze for two hours.

Tip

Have a plate handy when the timer goes off. Lift the lid, and pull the dasher out carefully. Now, this is where you can have a little fun. Give the dasher plate with a spoon to your sweetheart or the birthday kid, and let them lick it clean while you dish up the bowls.

6) Fruity, Nutty Caramel Crunch Ice Cream

How to Make Ice Cream in Five Easy Steps

Your ice cream maker comes with an ingenious 1-1/2 quart freezer bowl like the white one in my freezer, shown below.

Here's the quick, easy, 5-step process:

  1. Freeze the bowl for 16+ hours prior to making ice cream. If it's not that solid, it won't turn your creamy mixture to ice cream.
  2. Next, stir up a batch of ice cream slurry from the recipe book that comes with the maker, or try one of mine on this page.
  3. Cover and chill the mixture in the fridge for one hour, up to 24 hours. If the container is airtight, you can leave it longer, such as overnight or up to 3 days.
  4. When you're ready to make ice cream, place the frozen bowl on the machine, slip the paddle in, pop the clear, plastic cover over the assembly, hit the on button, and pour the ice cream mixture through the top opening in the lid.
  5. Optional: Set a timer for 15 minutes, if you're adding chopped nuts, candy, or fruit. Add the candy slowly during the last 5 minutes processing.
  6. If not adding candy, nuts or fruit, set the timer for 20 minutes, and walk away till it's done.

That's all there is to it! We like our ice cream fresh, soft-serve style. If you like it hard, you'll want to transfer it to a freezer container, and freeze for a few hours.

Step One: Freeze Your Bowl. Mix and Chill Your Ingredients.

Freeze the double-walled freezer bowl solid, at least for 16-24 hours. If your mixer came with 2 bowls, keep one in the freezer at all times, ready for the next batch.

Step Two: Put the Bowl in the Ice Cream Maker.

Step Four: Prepare Any "Extras" You Want to Throw in in the Last Five Minutes.

If you're adding goodies, after 15 minutes, slowly add 1/2 to 1 cup chopped nuts, candy, cookies, or fruit of your choice.

        You could try it, but I doubt the ice cream would taste very good. On the other hand, the beauty of making your own is using ingredients you prefer. If you’ve trained your taste buds to like skim milk, you might not miss the extra boost whole milk gives.

        I once tried using half and half in place of the heavy whipping cream, to see if I could shave a few calories without sacrificing taste. What a disappointment! But then, it’s the cream in ice cream that I go for.

        @esp1489: Good question. Store bought ice cream is just as hard in my refrigerator-top freezer as my homemade ice cream, but I must admit I have never experienced "soft" store-bought ice cream. Whether store-bought or homemade, we always let the ice cream sit on the counter-top for five minutes before scooping.

        Some great information and recipes thanks! I'm wondering what the ice cream is like after a few days of being frozen in the freezer after mixing? does it get too hard? or can you still scoop it out and its 'soft' like store bought ice cream? I'm looking at getting the cuisinart ICE-21. Thanks in advance,

        Who wouldn't love an ice cream maker? I love cookie dough, or brownie - or both. After all, if you're gonna go unhealthy, you may as well go all out. ;) Blessed by a SquidAngel!

        My favorite ice-cream of all time is Yarnell's Cotton Candy, made in Arkansas, where I went to college. Haven't had it since I graduated. In Puerto Rico I had Beans and Rice ice cream, and a delicious Ginger flavor that was loaded with fresh, snappy ginger root.

        You certainly know how to sell a product! All these ice creams look so good, who wouldn't want the ice cream maker that can make these yummy concoctions.

        My favorite ice cream is Blue Bell Cookies 'n Creme. The little creamery in Texas makes the best ice cream in the world. They have seasonal flavors (like vanilla and peach) that rank very high on my list of decadent delight. I would love any of the ice cream treats featured here. Delicious!
