Make Your Favorite Ice Cream At Home

Updated on January 28, 2014

Why don't you make your favorite one yourself?

Everybody love ice cream, especially in summer. So, why don't you learn how to make it yourself? It tastes better, it has no preservatives, it is healthier and you know exactly what's going into it, plus you can play with different flavor combinations each time.

It has always been my favorite dessert and this is why I'm making it by myself since childhood.

And when you decide to start making your own ice cream, you will never buy one in the store again. Just like me.

Directions - Follow these steps and you will get a perfect ice cream

First, prepare eggs. Separate yolks and whites. Beat egg whites into snow and yolks with sugar into foam.

Then prepare bananas (I grind them with a hand blender) and whipped cream.

Cook the yolks over very low heat (I cook it over pair) so they don't boil.

Split cooked yolks in two separate bowls. You will need one for banana ice cream and other for chocolate ice cream. Into first one, put ground bananas, half of egg snow and half of whipped cream. Into second one, put the other half of egg snow, half of whipped cream and ground chocolate.

Gently mix all the ingredients, divide them into serving glasses and put them into freezer.

If you prefer using an ice cream maker, transfer the mixture to maker and freeze following the manufacturer's instructions.

And that's it! Enjoy your own homemade ice cream!

Use your favorite flavor!

You can combine any flavor you love. Simply replace bananas and chocolate with any fruit or flavor you want.

      I rarely eat ice cream, and I usually end up with store bought because that's what's available. However, I've had some absolutely wonderful homemade ice cream several times. (One of them was frozen in a ice cube tray and had an actual strawberry in each cube as well.)

      My favorite is the coffee ice cream. And yes I do make it at home. But it also depends on what is available weather I make it or buy it.

      I am not expert in ice cream making since I buy mostly the ready stuff. I came across your interesting lens a few days ago and from what I see here it's time to make my first effort. Thanks for the valuable tips:=)
