      Post title says no machine or ice cream maker is needed for making this ice cream.So
What does the machine/ice cream maker do ?
       Preventing ice crystals formation by  stirring/churned the milk,cream mixture later the mixture is freezed in already cold container.
Why we go for no churn/no machine ice creams?
    First of all everybody can't have the machine to make the ice cream (including me).So can't we enjoy homemade ice cream? .Nah ...You can.Follow this recipe to enjoy a delicious chocolate ice cream.

I used half and half instead of cream.Half and Half is nothing but half cream and half milk.So little  less calories than cream (for the diet watchers).There is no sugar added too,if you want more sweetness you can do so while stirring in the mixture.So this is going to be the easiest and less calorie ice cream with just 3 ingredient.To make the ice cream creamier check the tips at the end of this post.

  • If you are churning it then the base of the churning machine has to be freezed for at least 24 hours.
  • You can use heavy cream instead of half and half (more calories than half and half).In that case ice cream will be more creamy.
  • Try to keep the ice cream in flat base.This makes the ice creams more tasty.
  • Add in chopped nuts of your choice to make it more nutty.
  • Add vanilla essence to make it a vanilla ice cream.
  • Try to make it fresh every time.
Tips for storing:
  • Less the fat ,the ice cream turns very hard.
  • If the ice cream is hard try to keep it out for 10 minutes or keep it in fridge for 30 minutes to make scooping easy.
  • Try to keep a parchment or butter paper covering the layer to prevent ice crystal formation.
  • Smooth the layer after scooping.
  • The fact is when the ice cream sets quickly then it will have less ice crystals and more creamy ,for this you have to freeze the airtight container you are placing the ice cream then pour the ice cream in. Check some tips from here.
