How To Make Vanilla Bean Coconut Ice Cream Without an Ice cream Maker
To make ice cream at home without an ice cream maker, you’ll need the following equipment;
- Bigger bowl to put ice cubes
- Smaller metal bowl to mix your ingredients. Should fit comfortably in the bigger bowl with ice.
- Hand held electric mixer
- Loaf tin to store the ice cream while freezing or any freezer safe container
The secret to making ice cream without an ice maker is to keep everything cold. To start with, the day or night before making this ice cream, you’ll need to put the coconut cream cans, the bowls and the loaf tin into the freezer. This will ensure everything stays cold and the ice cream maintains the same temperature from beginning to the end.
- Scrape the Ugandan vanilla from the bean and set aside. To do this, run a knife across the bean to cut it open then scrape the vanilla with the knife.
- You’ll need to have two bowls, One twice as large as the other. The smaller bowl ideally should be a metal bowl. The bogger one can be of any material.
- You’ll fill the bigger bowl with ice cubes mixed with salt. The salt will slow down the melting point.
- Nest the smaller bowl into the bigger bowl with ice and start adding your ingredients.
- Add the coconut cream, use any with a high fat consistency to maintain the creaminess. Then add sugar, you may substitute with honey or maple syrup, scrape the Ugandan vanilla bean and add it in, then the pure vanilla extract and a pinch of sea salt. Salt will enhance all the flavors and bring everything together.
- Use a hand electric blender to beat everything together for about 10 minutes. The mixture will start to freeze on the sides, so scrape the sides and keep beating.
- After 10 minutes, cover everything with a cling film i.e the bigger bowl with ice and the smaller bowl with the ice cream, and return to the freezer for 1 hour.
- After 1 hour, beat again for 5 minutes, scrape the sides and continue. You want to deflate the ice cream and make it smooth.
- Pour the ice cream into the loaf tin that has been in the freezer all this time, cover with a cling film until it touches the ice cream, then cover the top with a parchment paper and secure it.
- Return to the freezer and freeze for 24 hours, not over night.
- To enjoy, let the ice cream thaw for 10 minutes and Enjoy!
