Homemade chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream is delicious and easy to make. It’s egg-free so even easier and quicker. It’s perfect for a KitchenAid ice cream attachment.
Every birthday I requested brownies and homemade ice cream instead of cake. I’ve always loved homemade ice cream. While I’ve had an ice cream ball I haven’t made it in a while. It took a fair amount of time to make it that way.
I love that it uses my KitchenAid stand mixer and isn’t a separate appliance I have to store. I store the bowl in my freezer so it’s ready when the mood strikes.
While I use my KitchenAid stand mixer to make this ice cream you can use any ice cream maker to make this delicious ice cream. You’ll just use the ingredients in the recipe and follow the instructions that came with your ice cream maker.
Making Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream
The first ice cream I had to try was basic vanilla and my husband requested some edible cookie dough so of course, I throw that in. We both loved it and it’s going to be a regular in our home.
Homemade ice cream is great because you can control the ingredients. A lot of ice creams have questionable ingredients. This ice cream uses simple ingredients. You likely already have them on hand.
You can even leave out the cookie dough, it will still be delicious. It’s a great base recipe for anything you want to add in. You also can change the type of dairy you use. I used half cream and half milk but you can use all cream, half and half, whatever works best for you. You can use all milk but it will be a little icy and not as creamy.
Using the KitchenAid Ice Cream Attachment
The KitchenAid ice cream attachment makes homemade ice cream very simple. You’ll want to have the bowl fully frozen, I like to keep mine in the freezer so it’s always ready but you can also stick it in the freezer at least 24 hours before you are going to make ice cream.
Once you have the bowl ready all you’ll need to do is mix your ingredients and put it in the bowl. You’ll want to follow the directions with the KitchenAid ice cream attachment that fits with the type of ice cream you are making but the basic idea is it will slowly mix it until the ice cream freezes.
The KitchenAid ice cream attachment can be used for more than ice cream. I love to make frozen cokes in it as well. All you do to make those is pour in your coke and turn the KitchenAid on low until it turns into a slushie. It only takes around 20 minutes and is so delicious.
