How to Make Ice Cream in Blendtec Blenders

How to Make Icecream in a Blendtec Blender


You can create soft-serve frozen treats, like sorbets, frozen yogurt or ice cream, in your Blendtec Blender in mere minutes with the push of a button. 

 

Chef Austin's Tips for Making Ice Cream in Your Blendtec Blender:

  • The colder the ingredients, the better. Use frozen fruits and ice when blending. Freeze milk, juices, coffee, and other liquids in an ice tray to use in your blender ice cream. 
  • Layer your ingredients in this order: Liquids, including heavy cream or condensed milk and vanilla extract, go on the bottom; frozen or fresh fruit and solid ingredients go on top. Adding liquids to the bottom helps the blender blades catch the solid ingredients to move everything around and ensure a properly blended ice cream (or smoothie!).
  • If ice cream is too liquidy, add ice cubes and re-blend to help "refreeze" ingredients.

Chef Austin's Recommended Recipes 

Simple Frozen-Fruit Ice Cream

1⁄2  tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 cup Frozen Fruit (cherries, strawberries, mango, blueberry, etc.)
