Home Made Ice Cream

I got a new Cuisinart Soft Serve Ice Cream maker and I've been having some fun with it! Here are the recipes I've made (with my modifications). Here is the original recipe book. I will add flavors to this entry as I make them. I'll also try to take a picture of a recipe soon.


Simple Vanilla Ice Cream

(Low Fat/Sugar free)
I've made this with 1% milk and with Almond Breeze. It is creamier with 1%. Srprisingly, prepared, powdered skim milk works even better(and lowers the calories).

  • 1 cup 1% milk
  • 2 cups fat free half and half
  • 3/4 cup splenda
  • 1-2 tsp vanilla

1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl that is easy to pour. Turn on ice cream maker and pour in ingredients. Allow to mix for 12-20 minutes, or until desired consistency is reached.

All recipes say they make 10 1/2 cup servings. I made two huge servings, since this was so low calorie/fat. My servings were about 2-2.25 cups each.

Simple Chocolate Ice Cream

EXACT same as above, but add 1/4 cup cocoa to the mixture before placing in the ice cream maker. Adds 20 calories/serving if making 2 large servings.


Mint Ice cream

EXACT same as above, but add 1 tsp mint extract and 4-5 drops of green or pink food coloring if desired.


Chocolate Banana Ice Cream (or just banana)

Omit the cocoa for banana ice cream.

  • 2 medium bananas
  • 3/4 cup 1% milk
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 1/3 cups fat free half and half
  • 2/3 cup splenda
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup hershey's cocoa powder (if making chocolate)
  • yellow food coloring, if desired
  1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl that is easy to pour. Turn on ice cream maker and pour in ingredients. Allow to mix for 12-20 minutes, or until desired consistency is reached.

I made it into 4 servings.

Root Beer Float Ice cream

Peanut Butter Ice Cream (w/ Pb2)

This was good, but grainy in texture because of the powedered peanut butter. Next time I’ll use real peanut butter to see if we like it better.

  • 1 cup prepared pb2 (prepared with water as instructed)
  • 2/3 cup splenda
  • 1 cup 1% milk
  • 1 ½ cups fat free half and half
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl that is easy to pour. Turn on ice cream maker and pour in ingredients. Allow to mix for 12-20 minutes, or until desired consistency is reached.

I made 3 servings. I’d divide it into smaller servings if using real peanut butter.
