Non dairy vanilla ice cream, when I thought last week about which recipe I had to release today, I went to the ice. It may have something to do with the fact that it was the whole week in the 90s. And when I came home on Friday, I found a nice surprise in my fridge: 15 kilos of fresh cherries!
Then of course I decided to make a cherry ice cream. Homemade ice cream is generally much better for you (and much better) than ice cream that is bought in the store. And this ice (vegan) without milk, manure much less than the usual ice cream.
Do you need an ice machine to make ice cream?
Although there are ice-cream recipes that do not require a refrigerator, I have noticed that most of them require sweetened condensed milk or whipped cream or eggs, which all make the ice cream thicker.
Why does an ice cream maker, produce a better ice cream? An ice cream machine freezes the creamy mixture while air is being injected, and the result is a light and creamy frozen cream.
There are other ways to make home-made ice cream, but I think a refrigerator will provide the best results. Older models required a lot of salt and ice, but now you can buy ice that comes with a double-walled container with a coolant in the walls. Before you prepare your ice cream, place the container in the freezer to freeze the liquid.
When you are ready to hit your ice cream, remove the can from the freezer, add the mixture and switch on the coffee maker. You do not need ice or salt. An ice machine is so easy to use: you can have homemade ice cream within about 20 minutes!
Here is the ice machine that I use. The easiest way to grow fresh cherries is a tool designed specifically for this purpose: a cherry picker. It saves you a lot of time: you can collect hundreds of cherries per hour! And it is easy to use my children have worn their cherry hats on their third year. He kept cherries a nice family project because everyone, even the smallest, could help.
The pitcher of cherries that used to belong to my grandmother. He is at least 30 years old and works very well. They still make similar cherry pits, both those with a suction base and those that are attached to the surface. They also make portable models, but I have never tried one.
They seem easy to use, but it looks like they would not be able to cut as many cherries as they would with those who stick to a surface and have a slope / scale to hold the fruit. Click here to watch a video watch that is made of chopped cherries with a cherry chopper.
We love the cherry season! How do you get to the cherries? What is your favorite fruit in the summer? Performance 1 1/2 quarts. What is more beautiful than fresh, homemade and creamy ice cream? How about one that is much lower in saturated fats and refined sweeteners, and that is made with healthy ingredients?
1. Pour the coconut milk, sugar, salt and about half of the rice milk into a medium-sized pan and bring to the boil.

3. Add the starch mixture as the mixture simmers in the pot. Bring to the boil, roll and stir constantly with a heat resistant spatula.
4. Place the mixture in the refrigerator to cool down (minimum 3 hours, preferably at night).
5. Add the vanilla if the mixture is very cold.
6. Pour the cold mixture into a 1 1/2 to 2 quart ice machine and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.
7. Add the cherries if the ice is made by knocking. You can let the mixture cool down in the refrigerator instead of cooling it down. Remove it occasionally so that it does not freeze along the edges.
Note the additional instructions under this recipe.
1. Although I am not very interested in rice milk, I have discovered that it offers a better taste (compared to other milk-free milk) in this recipe for ice cream.
2. Make sure you use whole doses of coconut milk. It is important for proper consistency and sensation in the mouth.
3. Although there is a whole coconut milk in this recipe, the ice cream does not have a strong coconut flavor. You'll probably love it, even if you do not like coconut. Did you make this recipe?
