Homemade Ice Cream (without ice cream maker)

"Ice cream also you know how to make?"

That was that my friend commented on the ice cream picture that I have posted in FB.

Hahaha.....

As I've said, cooking and baking is therapeutic for me. I'm head over heels when my baking turned out good. It's even better if somebody willing to clear it off for me so that I do not need to stuff myself silly-ly :)

So since my mom in law with us now, I baked stuffs. Cakes, breads, ice creams, tarts (on the way ^.^) and wow, she really can clear it off for me. Most of the time, she only have one comment for me "mmm...nice, nice, nice.... hahahaha....really :)

Green Tea Ice Cream

The first flavor I did was chocolate and coffee. I dont fancy chocolate actually but that was the only ingredient I have at that time. I only have a spoonful, that's it. My mom in law 'kau tim' all for me. Haha...

Strawberries Ice Cream

It's very easy. Really easy. You do not need to own an ice cream maker to make one. But you need to own a refrigerator. Haha.... sorry, lame joke.

Anyway, if you want to try it on your own, here is the recipe:

For green tea ice cream:
360ml whipping cream
180ml fresh milk
25g green tea powder
75g sugar
2 egg yolks
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon gelatin powder

- Bring whipping cream, milk and green tea powder in a saucepan to a boil on medium heat. Stir occasionally. Off the heat and let it sit for 5 minutes.
- On another bowl, beat egg yolks and sugar and gelatin until well combined.
- Pour 1/4 of the hot cream mixture into egg mixture. Whisk immediately to prevent cooking. Pour in another 1/4 and whisk. Lastly pour the remaining cream mixture and whisk.
- Sieve mixture back into saucepan. Cook on medium low heat until mixture thicken. Do not bring it to boil or else you'll end up with gritty ice cream.
- Pour everything into a bowl, let it cool and put it into freezer.
- When a ring of ice has formed, bring it out and whack it with a fork. Put it back into the freezer. Repeat this procedure 3-4 times until you have a creamy ice cream.
- Transfer the ice cream into freezable containers and freeze until hard.

For strawberries ice cream:
140g strawberries puree (or any other fruits also no problem)
2-3 tablespoons of sugar (if you have sour strawberries, you can put more sugar)
3 eggs yolks
200ml whipping cream
250ml fresh milk

- Bring whipping cream and milk in a saucepan to a boil on medium heat. Stir occasionally. Off the heat and let it sit for 5 minutes.
- On another bowl, beat egg yolks, sugar and strawberries puree until well combined.
- Pour 1/4 of the hot cream mixture into egg mixture. Whisk immediately to prevent cooking. Pour in another 1/4 and whisk. Lastly pour the remaining cream mixture and whisk.
- Sieve mixture back into saucepan. Cook on medium low heat until mixture thicken. Do not bring it to boil or else you'll end up with gritty ice cream.
- Pour everything into a bowl, let it cool and put it into freezer.
- When a ring of ice has formed, bring it out and whack it with a fork. Put it back into the freezer. Repeat this procedure 3-4 times until you have a creamy ice cream.
- Transfer the ice cream into freezable containers and freeze until hard.


Cream and egg mixture cook under medium low heat. Whisk occasionally.

First time whacking after ring has formed.

Happy trying.....

Shu-Yin,
You're welcome. Green tea ice cream turned out nice and creamy. My mom in law said very good. hahaha....actually I dont fancy green tea ice cream, so can't really compare to haagen-dazs one.

p/s: but a good quality green tea powder, if there is such thing ;)

I learned something new! I always thought you needed a special ice-cream maker like you see on TV.

I wonder if we could substitute strawberry with durian or coconut, my favourite flavours.

How long does it take to form the "ring of ice"?

Hi Adino,
Yea, last time I also thought that we need special ice cream maker to make one. Yes, of cox. You can substitute with any flavours you want. If powder form like coffee or cocoa, you can follow the green tea method and if in paste form, can follow like the strawberries method.

The ring of ice normally takes around 1-2 hour but depend on ur fridge temperature.

Happy trying :)
