Lazy Vanilla Ice Cream

READY IN: 24hrs 20mins
Recipe by cellar door

Original Recipe from: To be served with: Cherry Banana Bread and Chocolate Sauce Notes on ingredients: Silk Coffee Creamer is soy creamer. Regular coffee creamer is not. Soy milk yields the best ice cream, coconut milk is a very close second. Rice milk requires a little more patience.

Got together with a couple of friends of mine who're really into using their ice cream maker, & followed your recipe right on down! We all thought this was a great tasting frozen dessert, not quite like the real thing, but close enough that we were unconcerned! And topped with a homemade cranberry-applesauce mix, we were thoroughly satisfied! Many thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this fall's round of Pick A Chef]

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix ¼ cup of soy milk with the 2 tablespoons of arrowroot or cornstarch and set aside.
  2. Mix the soy creamer, soy milk, and sugar together in a saucepan. When the mixture has just started to boil, take off the heat and stir in the arrowroot slurry. This should immediately cause the liquid to thicken (not a lot, but a noticeable amount; it will be thicker when it cools).
  3. Stir in vanilla extract.
  4. Set the ice cream mixture aside to cool. Freeze according to your ice cream maker’s instructions.
