Kitchenaid Ice Cream Attachment Recipes

There’s nothing like a big bowl of ice cream on a hot summer day. It’s even better when you’ve made it yourself. Luckily, the Kitchenaid mixer makes that pretty easy to do. Whether you like vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, or something more exotic (like fig!), just follow the Kitchenaid ice cream attachment recipes below to learn how to make fresh ice cream right in your own home.

You can make about 2 quarts of ice cream, sherbet, or sorbet in only 25 minutes or so. Freeze the bowl, make the ice cream recipe, put it together, turn the mixer on, add the ice cream mixture, and mix until it starts to freeze. Then transfer to your freezer to freeze more solidly.

Oh, but first, before you do anything else, do as the first reviewer recommends and carefully black out all the calorie and fat information in the recipe guide!

(One more important note, this attachment is designed to fit US mixers made after 1990).

Kitchenaid Strawberry Ice Cream Recipes

  • Strawberry ice cream  A delicious way to eat strawberries in season (or even not in season). Omit the lemon, add a bit of Grand Marnier if you like, or try it with a mixture of different kinds of berries.
  • Strawberry ice cream from Pinch My Salt  Heavy cream, egg yolks, vanilla, and strawberries.
  • Homemade strawberry ice cream  – She has a good tip here about getting creamier ice cream: dry the strawberries thoroughly before using them.
  • Strawberry Balsamic Ice Cream  This one has a bit of a twist. Balsamic vinegar and strawberries may seem a bit odd, but it’s actually quite good. If you’re skeptical, try the same combination (strawberries and balsamic vinegar), with some fresh strawberries. If you’re really daring, add a bit of cracked black pepper. This recipe also has helpful step by step photos.




 


Ice Cream Containers

Once you’ve made your ice cream, you’ll need something to store it in. These are narrow and stackable, so they don’t take up a lot of space in your freezer. They’ll fit right in the door. Easy to clean and they come in several colors so you can pick your favorite.

You’ll easily get a perfect scoop, no matter how thick your ice cream is. Since it’s OXO, it’s also easy to hold and has a lifetime guaranty.
