How to make ice cream without a machine

Here's where we're going to show you how to make ice cream without an ice cream maker, that contains the sweet leaf stevia sweetener

It's a lengthy process that can take up to 3 hours of your time, but the addition of some homemade ice cream at the next upcoming birthday party for the diabetic will be the surprise event of the occasion. After all, cake and ice cream is synonymous with a birthday party in everyone's mind, whether they are young or old.


First, let's have a look at the ingredients we will need for our ice cream base. You can experiment with the quantities a bit, especially using the stevia sparingly. After all, we don't want to have our ice cream tasting too bitter!

  • 1 to 2 eggs
  • 2 cups cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 to 2/3 teaspoon white stevia powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

The rest of the flavoring (for example, chunks of strawberries or ground lemon peel, ... you're only limited by your own imagination in this) will be added in later. 

For now, mix the ingredients needed to create the base thoroughly in a wide metal or plastic bowl, so it will freeze better and allow more air into the mixture, making your end result creamier.

After the ingredients are mixed together, put them in the fridge for at least an hour, until the mixture is completely chilled. Then put it in the freezer for 30 to 40 minutes.

After 40 minutes in the freezer, take the mixture out. It should be frozen on the outside edges, but still soft on the inside. Beat the mixture with an electric mixer or by hand until it is smooth again. This process will break up any ice crystals and add oxygen to your mixture.

When the mixture is smooth, place it in the freezer again for 30-40 minutes and repeat the cycle of freezing and beating three times. Before the last cycle you can add in your flavoring. The texture of your ice cream should be thick enough to allow the flavoring to blend well, and not sink to the bottom. After the last cycle your ice cream will be ready for eating or long-term freezing.

Congratulations! You've now learned how to make ice cream without a machine, using the sweet leaf stevia sweetener. Just remember that hand-made ice cream tends to be harder than ice cream made with an ice cream maker, so you might want to let it sit a bit before serving.


If you do decide on getting an ice cream maker on a budget, the best choices are either the electrical Cuisinart machines, or Donvier ice cream makers that speed up your stirring process. Both retail at about $50-60, and you really don't need a $300 machine to do the job. They will speed up your preparation time five- or tenfold, so they might be worth looking into.
