    ice cream without eggs 11th Jun 06 at 1:24 PM
    Can I make ice cream without having to make the egg custard base? If I just flavoured some whipped up double cream and froze it would it go all grainy or would it be ok? I have got an ice cream maker but very few recipes!

    You can make woderful Italian style white vanilla ice cream in an ice cream amker with skimmed milk, milk powder, vanilla extract and sugar. You need four tbs of milk powder for a pint of milk and sugar to taste, plus a tsp of vanilla. I have made it lots of times and sometimes I add mashed strawberries, blueberries, banana or other fruit (stewed apple and cinnamon is nice). I saw it made on Pebble Mill at one years ago by a TV cook called Sue Kreitzman (she did low-fat cookery). You just mix up all the ingredients and churn. It won't work if you don't use an ice cream maker though.

    Sorry to bore on about my dd who is allergic to eggs yet again,but egg-free ice cream is obviously something I've had experience with:rolleyes:

    I made strawberry ice cream in an ice-cream maker last week very much the same way as Shykins.Blend a punnet of strawberries,add icing sugar(dissolves easily),stir in 1/2 a pint whipped cream and 1/2 a pint yogurt.Pour in ice cream maker and churn till frozen.Was delicious.

    Obviously you can use other fruit in the same way.What I don't think would work is chocolate or coffee or vanilla ice cream without egg custard as a base.However it might work with a carton of custard (which doesn't contain eggs).

    Someone mentioned Sue Kreitzman,the low-fat guru.I have all her books! That's not to say I cook low-fat btw.Her method of making ice cream involves using frozen fruit.You put frozen berries/cubes of frozen mango/banana/pineapple etc in a food processor.Add some sugar/jam and blitz ,add some sort of dairy product whilst the motor is running.Sue K uses low-fat fromage frais but you could use yogurt, or cream.Instant ice cream!

    This method is very good and invites experimentation.You do need to eat it immediately, though because if you freeze it, it sets rock hard.

    Btw you do need sugar I find, with ice cream even if the fruit is sweet because freezing dulls the sweetness. HTH

    Ice cream w/out ice cream maker *or* eggs ...
    • #7
    • 11th Jun 06, 5:01 PM
    ... This is a copy of a post I made back in May '05 (Original post by Queenie) The Orange Ice Cream requires nothing more than orange juice cream and sugar. No ice cream maker required.

    The second recipe (chocolate) I've included for those who *can* eat ice cream made from an egg custard base, but don't own an ice-cream maker.

    Orange Ice Cream (Serves 4)

    300ml - 1/2 pint double cream, whipped
    300ml - 1/2 pint orange juice
    50g - 2oz caster sugar

    Put the cream in a bowl, add half the OJ and stir until evenly blended.
    Stir in the remaining OJ, a little at a time.
    Fold in the sugar.

    To Freeze: spoon the mixture into a rigid container, cover and freeze for about 1 hour. Stir it well, then, seal, label and return to freezer.

    To Thaw & Serve: transfer to the fridge for 15mins until softened slightly.

    *********************

    Chocolate Ice Cream (Serves 4)
    (more work than the above, but worth it!)

    300ml - 1/2 pint milk
    75g - 3oz sugar
    2 eggs, beaten
    75g - 3oz chocolate, melted
    300ml - 1/2 pint double cream, lightly whipped

    Put milk and sugar in a pan, heat slowly until the sugar is dissolved, then pour onto the beaten eggs, stirring constantly.
    Return the mixture back to rinsed out pan and heat gently until the custard thickens, stirring constantly.
    Strain into a bowl, then stir in the melted chocolate.
    Leave to cool.
    Fold in the whipped cream, until evenly blended.

    To Freeze: Spoon into a rigid container, then cover with foil. Seal, label and freeze.
    To Thaw & Serve: Transfer to the fridge for about 30mins to soften slightly.

    *************************

    I bought a carton of double cream reduced price so basically was able to make both ice creams for minimal cost!

    I made some ice-cream today without the eggs! A tub of double cream, drained tinned strawbs, a sprinkling of caster sugar, and a dribble of the strawberry syrup - whisked in a bowl, then poured into my ice-cream maker. Luvverly!

    I've sucssesfully made ice-cream using half whipped cream and half custard made with custard powder. I don't think custard powder has eggs in it. There aren't any on the igredients list but it does contain "flavourings" which I suppose could be just about anything!

    Custard powder doesn't contain eggs.Eggs definitely have to be declared on ingredients list,presumably because they are a common allergen.It is basically just yellow cornflour.

    Incidentally Alfred Bird of Bird's Custard fame invented the stuff because his wife was allergic to eggs.Way to go Alf

    Custard powder is basically, cornflour based with a smidgen of colouring = no eggs

    I mashed up a mango and stuck it in the freezer with some natural yoghurt yesterday. It was a lovely snack, but it would have been perfect with a mixture of cream and yoghurt. Not ice cream, but a quick snack of that variety anyway. And no eggs.
    May all your dots fall silently to the ground.

    heaps of things to try out - I knew you guys would come up trumps. It always amazes me on this forum because whatever question you ask someone always knows the answer!

    As I had some cream in I went for the orange juice icecream today which was so easy and delicious served with scrunched up meringue nests. Tomorrow I'm going to do the storecupboard one and I've printed out the thread so I can try some of those fruit ones too - just need it to stay sunny now...

    Mocha ice cream
    Anyone can make this easy ice cream? It's really simple and you don't need an ice cream machine, just a rigid freezer proof container with a tight fitting lid. I've used milk chocolate chips but you could swap them for plain or white if you prefer.
    Ingredients
    600ml fresh ready-made custard
    150ml strong black coffee
    300ml double cream
    50g milk chocolate chips



    Method
    1. Put the custard in a bowl and stir in the coffee. Softly whip the cream and fold into the mixture, along with the chocolate chips. Pour the mixture into a freezer container and cover with a tight fitting lid.
    2. Place the container in the freezer for 2 hours, then beat with a fork to break up the ice crystals. Return to the freezer and repeat the process after another 2 hours. Return to the freezer until completely frozen.

    i've made raspberry ice cream using a tin of custard some double cream and a load of bruised rasps. Put them all in the liquidizer, then transferred to an old ice cream tub or plastic bowl. Put it in the freezer and left it for a few hours until it was semi set. Took it out gave it a whisk with my electric whisk and put it back into the freezer. mmmmmmmhh! lovely
