Not having an ice cream maker, nor time to crank one will not hinder you from churning up your favorite ice cream. You can make sort of a shortcut ice cream that no one whines about and it can be served as a thick milk shake as well.
If you do like to try this, just whip a teaspoonful of vanilla and as much sweetener as you like into a quart of fresh goat milk. Put the bowl into the freezer with a cover on it. You can use a saucer if you do not have a cover. When it is starting to freeze, take it out and beat it very well with a hand mixer or a blender. Put back into the freezer until almost frozen. Take out and mix well again. Back into the freezer until as hard as you like. More often then not we cannot wait any longer and eat it like soft serve ice cream or add a bit of milk and beat it well, making milk shakes.
Of course, like the yogurt, you can add as much or as little as you want in the way of flavorings. Fruits, jam, chocolate, chocolate chips, or even marshmallows and nuts all can be incorporated into the nearly frozen ice cream. You can also add almond, black walnut, or whatever extract you desire. Then there are banana splits, sundaes with fresh fruits like blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries with cream or syrup made from them.
So, next time when your family request for ice cream, churning out these delicious ice cream take so little time and easy that you can master and do it more often, so Enjoy!
