No-Churn Ice Cream
It is always convenient to pick up a tub of ice cream from the nearby store when the craving kicks in. But sometimes, it is enjoyable to make Ice cream from scratch at home.

It might be frustrating to see ice crystals in your ice cream. Usually, No churn or the ice cream made without an ice cream maker is not creamy enough and has tiny ice crystals.
Ice cream makers churn the ice cream and prevent ice crystal formation. And by churning, it also incorporates air and makes the ice cream light and airy. The same texture is difficult to achieve without an ice cream maker.
Some recipes call for churning the ice cream 4-5 times every 30-40 minutes to break the ice crystal and incorporate air into the mixture.
Creamy Coconut Ice Cream
This Coconut Ice Cream doesn't need an ice cream maker, and no churning is required, yet it is so creamy and light. Here is why.
- Using full fat Cream and Coconut milk helps to make the Ice cream Creamy. Because of higher fat content, the formation of Ice crystals is very negligible.
- The amount of sugar added is very less, instead sweetened condensed milk is added for sweetness. Condensed milk also helps to make the Ice cream creamy.
- Whipping Heavy cream until light and fluffy helps to incorporate air to the mixture and makes the Ice cream light.
- Because of very low (almost negligible) water content. very fewer chances of ice crystal formation. Which means perfectly scoopable Ice cream.
