6 Simple Tips To Make Ice Cream At Home Without An Ice Cream Making Machine

You love ice cream, but you don’t love the price you have to pay for it. Whether you are getting a tub of ice cream at the grocery store or buying it by the scoop (which can often cost more than $3 just for a single cone), it’s way too expensive. Luckily, there are ways that you can make your own ice cream from fresh, healthy ingredients, and you don’t even need to have an ice cream machine.

Here are some tips to help you make delicious ice cream that your whole family will love.

    Heavy Cream and Condensed Milk

    You can use just two ingredients to make awesome ice cream that is ready to eat in a few hours. Mix one can of condensed milk with a pint of whipping/heavy cream with your food processor until it is thick and fluffy. Freeze and eat. That’s it. You can even add flavorings. For coffee flavored ice cream, melt a tablespoon of instant coffee in a bit of warm water, and add it to the ice cream during the blending process.

      Ice Cream Base

      All you need for this easy ice cream is your ice cream base, a freezer bag, and a food processor. Place the ice cream base inside the freezer bag, seal it, and put the bag into the freezer. Once it has frozen, use the food processor to blend the ice cream base until it is smooth and creamy. Again, this is another treat that is actually going to take a few hours to make, so if you want ice cream now, you better go out and buy some.

        Yogurt Ice Cream

        You can easily freeze yogurt and fruit to have a delicious frozen yogurt treat. There isn’t a lot of work involved, but like with many of the other recipes here, you will have to wait for a few hours until you can enjoy it.

          Freezer Bags, Ice Cream Base, Salt, and Ice

          One of the fastest and easiest ways to make homemade ice cream is to fill a freezer bag with your ice cream base, ice, and salt. Place the bag in the freezer and let it set for a few hours. Then, shake the bag for about 10 minutes, and you have delicious soft-serve ice cream ready to eat. The only real drawback to this method is that it takes several hours for the ice cream to be ready, so you won’t be able to simply make it and eat it. However, you can make any flavor you like, and it is delicious.

          1i4

            Ice Cream Base, Ice, and Rock Salt

            This is a bit neater than the previous methods of making homemade ice cream. Put ice cubes and rock salt in one bowl, and then put the ice cream base in a smaller bowl. Place this bowl inside the bowl of ice, and use a hand mixer to blend all of the ingredients. This is a great way to make ice cream if you want to have it within a few minutes. However, you do need to be careful that none of the salt actually gets into the ice cream, because it will ruin the flavor.

              Bananas

              Did you know that you can make delicious ice cream with just one ingredient? All you need are bananas. Peel and slice the bananas, place them in an air-tight container, and freeze them overnight. Then, blend the frozen banana slices with a food processor. It will take a while to do the blending. At first, the mixture will look crumbly, and then it will take on a gooey appearance. Finally, it will be smooth and creamy. All you have to do is put it in a container and place it back in the freezer until it is firm. This is an easy recipe, but it is a good idea to have a stand mixer, because your arms will end up getting tired if you have to stand there and hold an electric mixer for as long as it takes to turn frozen bananas into ice cream.

              10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

              10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

              Your house is more than just a building that you live in. It should be a home that makes you feel welcome as soon as you open the front door.

              Making your house feel like a home is not something that simply happens on its own. You need to make some changes to a house when you move in, to give it that cozy, warm feeling that turns it into a true home. To help you speed the process, follow this guide to 10 small changes to make your house feel like a home.

              1. Make the Windows Your Own

              When you move into a home, they often come with boring Venetian blinds or less than attractive curtains.

              One of the best ways you can instantly warm your home and make it showcase your style is to add some new window dressing. Adding beautiful curtains not only improves your home’s appearance, but it can also help to control the temperature.

              2. Put up Some Art

              If you have a lot of bare walls in your home, it will seem sterile no matter how beautiful your paint or wallpaper is.

              Hanging art on the walls will instantly give it personality and make it feel like home.

              3. Improve the Aroma

              A house that is not filled with inviting smells will never feel like a home. There are loads of ways you can make your home smell nice. There are tons of air fresheners on the market you can use.

              Incense and scented candles are a nice option as well. Don’t forget that baking in a home is also a great way to fill it with an aroma that instantly smells like home as soon as you open the front door.

              4. Put out Lots of Pillows and Throws

              A great way to make your home look warm and inviting is to place lots of pillows and throws out on the furniture. It is much better to have too many pillows than not enough.

              There is nothing like the feeling of sinking into a cushiony pillow that feels like a cloud to make you feel like you are at home.

              5. Instantly Class up Your Closet

              If your closet is filled with wire or plastic hangers, it will never truly feel homey. To instantly make your closet feel classy, change out your old hangers for wooden ones.

              Not only do they look great, but they are better for hanging your clothes as well.

              6. Improve Your Air Quality

              One of the most overlooked ways to make your house feel more like a home is to improve its air quality.

              The easiest and best way to upgrade the air quality in your home is to change the old, dirty filters in your furnace regularly. Get some air filters delivered to your home so that you always have some on hand.

              7. Fill it with Plants

              Another way to improve the air quality in your home is to fill it with plants. You should have plants in every room of your home.

              They help to improve the air quality and they look beautiful. As well as making your home appear homier, plants also help to boost your mood and lower your stress levels.

              8. Change the Doorknobs

              Most people don’t really give their doorknobs a second thought unless they are broken. That is a shame because changing your doorknobs is an easy way to add personality to your home.

              Changing your old, boring doorknobs to new ones that are works of art will instantly brighten your home.

              9. Upgrade Your Tub or Shower

              There is nothing like luxuriating in a whirlpool bath or steam shower to make the cares of the day melt away. Your family deserves a bit of luxury when they are in their bathroom.

              Install a new shower or tub today to make your bathroom worthy of a place in your home.

              10. Fresh Cut Flowers

              You can make any room in your house feel homier by placing a vase full of beautiful flowers in it. The gorgeous look and intoxicating aroma of fresh cut flowers will immediately brighten your day when you encounter them.

              You don’t have to make all these changes at once. Try one or two a day though, and your house will feel like a home before you know it. The trick is to constantly keep adding these homey touches to make your home a place worthy of its name.
