Quick to make and no ice cream machine needed! After trying different variations of ingredients, I finally figured out a combination that produced a smooth and creamy texture, yet didn't freeze rock-hard like most no-churn ice cream can. The vodka is optional, however it really helps keep the ice cream scoopable and you don't taste it!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine cream, sweetener, vodka, vanilla extract, xanthan gum, and salt in a wide-mouth pint-sized jar. Blend cream mixture with an immersion blender in an up-and-down motion until cream has thickened and soft peaks have formed, 60 to 75 seconds. Cover jar and place in the freezer for 3 to 4 hours, stirring every 30 to 40 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Freezing for 3 to 4 hours produces the best consistency, however if you'd like to soften it a bit, 10 seconds in the microwave does the trick, or remove from the freezer 15 minutes ahead of time.

You can pulse granular sweetener in a blender or food processor to achieve a powdered consistency.

Use different flavored extracts for variety.

Very good recipe. I made it exactly like the recipe except I didn't have any vodka. Was really good and easy. The second time I made it I added 3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder and an additional tablespoon of monk fruit. Really good and chocolatey. Some may prefer an additional tablespoon of monk fruit. The additional cocoa powder adds 3 more carbs or 1 carb per serving. It may even stretch the servings from 3 to 4. I'm not sure that it will freeze up with the addition of the cocoa powder It's been in the freezer for 3 hours and is still not freezing. It makes a great tasting mousse. Thanks for an easy and tasty treat. (It took awhile but it finally began to freeze so just leave it overnight for a frozen dessert.) Read More

This is a very versatile recipe. I omitted the vodka and did an extra splash of vanilla. I added 3 big spoons of a deep rich quality chocolate, one extra tbsp of Monkfruit, and a heavy dash of cinnamon. Wow!!!!! This one is a keeper. Read More

This treat was a quick easy fix for my sweet tooth. I sprinkled a little cinnamon on top for one serving and fresh blueberries for another. Delish. Read More
