What you need

- wooden sticks

As for ice cream recipes to make without an ice cream maker, there are quite a few, so you can vary the tastes as much as you want:

1. 100% fruit

Apples, oranges, guavas, mangoes, red fruits... Choose the fruits you like, put them in the empty yoghurt pots. Add water or milk and a wooden stir stick and put everything in the freezer until the ice cream has hardened. In general, it takes 3 hours of waiting.

2. In syrup

Prepare a pitcher of traditional syrup water. Here too, we have fun with the perfumes. And the advantage is that you can dose it so that it's just as sweet as it should be. Then just pour the preparation into the molds without forgetting to add the little stick and hop in the freezer for a few hours.

3. With milk

You make milk flavored with syrup (strawberry, grenadine, peach... whatever you like), you pour everything into the yogurt pots and let it freeze in the freezer. A delicious recipe and full of calcium... The little ones will love it!

4. With fruit juice

Choose the fruit juice you like. Pour it into your yogurt pots that you put in the freezer. Wait until the juice has started to freeze to add the sticks back to keep them straight. Now wait until the ice cream becomes completely hard.


And here you are, you finally have the recipe to treat yourself to ice cream all summer long. In addition they are much better and natural , since you are making your homemade dessert.

It's not the children who will tell you otherwise :-)

Savings achieved

A quality ice cream maker is 50 €, but why invest money in this accessory if you can make ice cream in an easier way?

And industrial ice cream is quite a budget at the end of the summer.

Making homemade ice cream without an ice cream maker costs you barely €3 , that is to say the sticks that you will use to eat it when it is ready. As for the yogurt pots and ingredients, you must surely already have them at home, since they are everyday consumer products :-).
