A Recipe for Vanilla Ice Cream in A Blender

Crush up about 2 cups (470 mL) of ice and add it to the blender.

Crushed ice, already broken down (and slightly easier to combine than cubed ice), will produce a creamier consistency. If you can't find crushed ice, you may make your own by crushing regular ice in a food processor until it's the size of small beans.

Having trouble with it? Try using a "blender for smoothies and ice."

Add the sugar and vanilla essence using measuring spoons.

Four tablespoons (12 tsp) of sugar and one teaspoon (0.33 US tbsp) of vanilla extract will be needed. In the absence of appropriate measuring implements, it is possible to approximate quantities.

Into the blender, add a quarter cup (59 mL) of milk.

To achieve a richer flavor and creamier texture, use 2% or whole milk, while 1% milk will yield a much lighter flavor (but more ice crystals). You can also substitute full-fat coconut milk for the light version. If you want a richer sauce, use heavy cream.

Blend the ingredients for at least a minute or until a creamy consistency is reached.

Blend the items with a lid on the blender until they reach a milkshake-like consistency. Keep mixing if you find ice chunks larger than a pea, and they won't be evident by the time you're done.

An easy solution to this problem is to use our "best blender to smash ice."

Put the concoction into a sealed container suitable for freezing.

Choose a wide-mouthed tub so that the ice cream can absorb as much cold air as possible. There is no better option than plastic when it comes to storage than ceramic or glass (which will take longer)

Freeze it for a couple of hours.

To hasten the process, set the container as far back in the freezer as feasible. To accelerate the process, you can also wedge it in between two other frozen things. If you're eager to consume it, you can take it out earlier, but keep in mind that different areas may have solidified at different rates.

Check the ice cream's texture with a spoonful of the mixture to make sure it's just right.

Here comes the best part: ice cream tasting! Take some from the very middle of the container, as that will have frozen the longest. Verify if the consistency is thick and silky enough for your tastes.

Put the ice cream in bowls and top it with whatever you choose.

To prepare a sundae, top vanilla ice creams with your preferred toppings, such as fresh cherries, sliced bananas, granola (or crushed graham crackers/waffle cones), and chocolate syrup.

Making Chocolate-flavored Ice Cream in a blender

Get a blender and fill it with whole milk, milk powder, and heavy cream.

Half a cup (120 mL) of whole milk, 8.0 tbsp (US) of nonfat dry milk powder, and 4.0 fl oz (US) of heavy cream are all you need.

Pour in the sugar, cocoa, vanilla, and ice.

Blend together 2/3 cup (11 US tbsp) sugar, 1/2 cup (8.0 US tbsp) unsweetened cocoa powder, and 2 cups (470 mL) ice, using measuring glasses for each ingredient. Then, add one teaspoon (0.33 US tbsp) of vanilla extract using a measuring spoon.

Crush the ice by blending the ingredients at a low speed.

Avoid ice-jamming your blender by starting at low speed. Put everything in a blender and white on low until the ice is smashed into tiny pieces (about the size of peas).

What could be more appropriate? Using the best ice crusher blenders will make the process easier.

Put the blender on high speed.

The mixture should be blended at high speed until it is thick and creamy, like a milkshake. Always cover your food to prevent spills!

Taste it to see if the flavor and consistency are satisfactory.

Scoop out a little bit of ice cream and have a taste. If it's too thick, you may thin it out by adding anything from half a tablespoon (1.5 tsp) to one tablespoon (3.0 tsp) of liquid (whole milk or heavy cream). If it's too watery, add some nonfat dry milk powder, about 1/2 to 1 tablespoon (1.5 to 3.0 tsp). After adding new ingredients, blend again at high speed.

The ice cream should be frozen for at least an hour after being transferred to a freezer-safe container.

If you want your food to freeze quickly and evenly, you should store it in a shallow, freezer-safe plastic container with a lid. To hasten the process, you should put the container as far back in the freezer as feasible. It's best to wait until about an hour has passed before opening the lid.

Put the ice cream in individual dishes and top them with whatever you choose.

For a truly delicious experience, top yours with your choice of toppings, whether that be sliced bananas, a sprinkle of cinnamon, fresh strawberries, or chocolate syrup.


In other words, can an ice cream be made in a blender?

A food processor, hand mixer, blender, or KitchenAid® stand mixer fitted with the Ice Cream Maker Attachment can all be used to produce ice cream.

My mixer broke, so I was wondering whether I could use a blender to whip the cream instead.

Blender. Make whipped cream in under 30 seconds with the help of a countertop blender and its sharp and fast blades. My Vitamix can be adjusted from high to low speeds. Mix the ingredients together and start thickening the cream at the slowest speed.

If you want to make a smooth ice blend, how do you do it?

When using a blender, it's best to add the ice cubes one at a time to avoid clogging the blades. It's considerably simpler to achieve a slushie-like consistency if you combine your liquid and add the ice gradually or in stages.
