You are now always only 5 minutes away from Ice Cream. Are you prepared?
  • also works great with yogurt!
A very special thanks to noahw for all of the amazing time and effort put into making this video for me.

Step 1: Ingredients

  • 1 package frozen fruit (I used raspberries)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Step 2: Make Ice Cream!!!!

Combine the frozen berries, sugar, cream and vanilla in a food processor or blender. Process until the fruit is roughly chopped and mixture resembles ice cream.

Step 3: Eat!

Your ice cream is ready to enjoy!
Eat now if you can't wait, or freeze for firmer texture.

Should there be any leftovers (ha!), they can be frozen for up to a week.

I can't wait to try this with chocolate syrup incorporated!

First batch: peaches with a few drops of almond extract.

Second batch: mango chunks with lime zest.

Next batch: ???

The possibilities are endless!

hi i want to make this but vegan.. can u tell me pls how?

If anyone has tried this recipe with the chocolate yet, tell me how it was! Awesome recipe

Thanks so much! Made this last night. I used a little less sugar but it was still great.

This looks great ! Have you tried chocolate yet?

schooch this seems more like gelato than ice cream because ice cream is made with egg yolks and other stuff

If it has egg yolks and cream, it's a frozen custard! My personal favorite, if you want an incredible frozen custard recipe, look up Alton Brown Good Eats on youtube, Churn Baby, Churn I think the episode is called. If it's just dairy (no eggs), it's ice cream! No dairy at all, sorbet or gelato or a number of other frozen concoctions! Sherbet is generally like ice cream, but the bulk of the mass is in fruit. Also, I realize this is over two years late, but I hope some one will find this useful.

Thats not true at all. Egg yolks? Never! Just heavy whipping cream (not whipped. the stuff in a carton) sugar, whichever ingredients you like, and bam! Of course you need an ice cream maker. You can also make butter with heavy cream... just pour some cream into a jar (or something with a spillproof lid) add a dash or so of salt, and shake it vigorously till the cream solidifies. Not lying!

Great recipe, but try replacing the the sugar with ripe frozen bananas - delicious1
