Homemade Skinny Vanilla Bean Ice-cream...step by step.


Print Friendly and PDF

Homemade ice cream with vanilla bean....that's today's treat for you.....its Eggless!! its low calorie!! plus the good thing about this skinny silky yummy ice cream is that you do not need that fancy expensive ice-cream maker....isn't that cool.

With summer trying to show its might.....ice-creams are life savers....

Can you believe that this can be whipped up in a matter of minutes....so easy that you will end up making this again and again, like I did.....even your kids can make it....no cooking needed....really!!



You need cream, milk powder, milk, sugar and vanilla to make this......and the cream is low fat (25%)...that make this a total guilt free indulgence.....

This skinny ice-cream can be put together in just under 10 minutes.....the hardest part is waiting for it to freeze.

This diet-friendly ice cream is highly adaptable, and that is the best part.....instead of sugar, you can use Equal or Splenda, you can mix it with chocolate chips, crumbled oreos, crushed strawberries, raspberries.....if not diet-conscious can use full fat cream and whole milk...so many options to suit your liking or diet needs.

This recipe is adapted from nimmyskitchen.blogspot.in
Ingredients:
Every Day Milk powder: 1 packet, 200gm.
Amul cream: 1 pkt 200 ml (low fat).
Sugar: 1/3 cup.
Skimmed Milk: 1 cup.
Vanilla : 1 pod vanilla, split and seeds scraped or vanilla essence: 3/4 tsp.

Method:
Grab all the stuffs.


Since the cream is low fat; it will not whip up, but if you like you can give it a try. Into a blender pour in the cream, (I did not whip up the cream).


Next the milk powder.


Add in the sugar.


The milk..


And lastly fresh vanilla seeds (just split a vanilla bean and scrape out the seeds with the tip of a knife)...hmmm I love the flavor...so very natural.


Close the blender and blend for 2 minutes.....that's all ..pour into a container....creamy, vanilla and skinny!!


Put it in the freezer for 1 hour then take out and whip with a fork or whisk....we have to do the job of the ice-cream maker...


And again after it is about to set....for best result whisk at least 3 to 4 times....then leave it undisturbed in the freezer preferably overnight.


Serve when the kids need to chill :)

Enjoy:)

    2. Hi again Nisa, sorry to be a bother, can I use half and half instead of heavy cream? Since your cream is also lower fat would this work? Do you have a suggestion? Thanks again! I have printed so many of your recipe and I'm planning on making them for upcoming dinners. YUM! Pam :)

    3. Hello Pam, glad to see you here again!! and please, its never a bother for me at all....I love sharing recipes as much as I want a recipe work for you...I do not fancy store-brought stuffs....and try to recreate everything at home ...though sometimes it might be a cheater version, but still it is homemade!! about your query...though I have not used half and half or full cream (as it is not available here) , many readers have told me it worked perfectly....this is a lighter, skinnier version though...the more cream or fat...will make the ice cream more creamier and merrier!! thanks for your kind words again...

  21. Hi again Nisa, Thanks so much for helping me out. I'm going to give it a try with the half and half since my recipes are all about "skinny" Haha! I can't wait to make this and I will be back to tell you how it came out but I'm sure not a delish as yours must be. Thanks again! Pam :)

  23. Hi Nisa,
    The recipe looks great and I am excited to try it out. Just one question though. I am from Mumbai and I know that it is not easy to get actual vanilla bean pods and will probably have to go ahead using vanilla essence. Does this change the taste a lot?
    Thanks!
