Ice Cream Recipe Collection

Ice Cream Recipe Collection

Our favorite ice cream recipe is very simple and we freeze it in one of the "freezable cylinder" ice cream makers. My husband is addicted. The chocolate version (his favorite) tastes just like a Wendy's frosty. I have added fresh strawberries and blueberries to this and added 1/4 cup more Splenda. When I add fruit I whirl it in the blender for a second.

  1 cup heavy cream
  1 cup half and half
  2 eggs
  3/4 cup splenda
  2 tsp. vanilla

Mix well and chill before adding to cylinder. For great chocolate add 2 T. cocoa.

Basic Vanilla Ice Cream
(use a 1qt. ice cream maker for best results)

Yummy, creamy, fabulous with no aftertaste, no clue it is sugar free, except it freezes very hard - just let it sit a bit to soften.

1 1/2 Cups whipping cream
1Tbsp. liquid sweetener (I use stevia)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 Tbsp. sugar free instant vanilla pudding mix
1 Cup (more or less) clear diet soda (I use diet cream soda here!)

In a 4 cup measure cup combine cream, sweetener, vanilla and pudding mix. Beat at high speed to a volume of 2 1/2 Cups. Stir in enough diet soda to make a total of 4 cups of the mixture - Pour into ice cream maker and follow directions.

Here is an ice cream recipe that is a little strange sounding...But the ice cream is really good. Wear gloves when shaking or your hands may freeze!

1 3/4 cup heavy cream, or half and half
1/3 cup Splenda
1 tsp. vanilla.

We put the cream, splenda and vanilla in a zip lock bag... (quart size). Then we put that bag into a 1 gallon size zip lock bag and cover it with ice and rock salt.

Then you shake it for 10 minutes...(by hand) The ice cream is great tasting, you get some exercise, and the kids love doing it.

It makes about 2 cups ice cream, I divide that into 4 servings at about 5 carbs each.

Yes it really does set. I think you could use the same recipe in a maker... it would just set faster then normal ice cream. I used to work in the Biology class and we did this with the students each summer as one of the heat energy experiments.
