No ice cream maker? Chill your mixture, then pour it in a freezer-safe container. Place it in the freezer for 30 minutes, remove and stir vigorously with a spatula or sturdy whisk to break up the ice crystals. Repeat every 30 minutes until firm.


Toward the end of freezing or churning cycle, add ½ cup of your favorite chunky ingredients. Try mini chocolate chips, nuts, coconut, marshmallows, cookie pieces, candy pieces, or cookie dough (made with Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized shell eggs).
