Delicious vanilla ice cream glutenfree and lactose free recipe. Enjoy this amazing ice cream anytime. Easy ice cream recipe – no ice cream maker needed.
It’s not easy to find a homemade ice cream recipe that doesn’t require an ice cream maker. And it’s even harder when you also want it to be gluten and lactosefree. But don’t worry, you don’t need an ice cream maker for this recipe.
I did several tests to find a recipe that’s very, very easy to make at home and gives a delicious result. You can also add whatever toppings you want, and if you want to make it without eggs, I’ll give you some tips on how to replace them.
The only downside is that you’ll have to wait a few hours for the ice cream to reach the right consistency and cool. But it’s worth the wait because you get delicious ice cream for a hot summer afternoon.

How to prepare this Vanilla ice cream- glutenfree
All ingredients for the Vanilla ice cream -glutenfree and lactosefree
- Egg yolks. You’ll need some egg yolks, but don’t worry, you can use the whites to bake typical “langues de chat” (French cat tongue cookies cookies).
- Powdered sugar. To get a creamy texture, use powdered sugar (store-bought or homemade). You can make it at home by simply grinding white sugar (in a high-powered food processor) until it turns to powder. I recommend not using brown sugar. If you want a creamier ice cream, you can use invert sugar (but if you don’t have the recipe, it’s just as good).
- Cream. I used a lactose cream for cooking (less than 30% fat), but, whipped cream with more than 30% fat would be best. The problem is that it’s difficult to find lactose-free whipped cream in the supermarket. If you can’t find whipped cream, you can use liquid cream and it’ll work just as well. If you don’t have cream, you can also use creamy Greek yogurt.
- Lactose-free Philadelphia-type cream cheese spread. If you don’t have cream cheese spread, you can also substitute it with cream or Greek yogurt.
- Vanilla essence
- Homemadre Caramel bars or cookies (glutenfree).
You can use either whipping cream or cream (for cooking) with less than 30% fat.
Tip: Prepare your own powdered sugar at home (it’s very easy to make and much cheaper).
Step by step to prepare vanilla ice cream –glutenfree
Preparing this ice cream is very easy, but it’ll take some time in the freezer once you make it.
To make this ice cream, first you need to boil the egg and sugar in a water bath. Put a pot of water on the stove and bring the water almost to a boil.
Turn off the heat and put a large bowl on the pot, add the powdered sugar, the water and the egg yolks. Beat very well with an electric whisk. Beat at full power for about 8 minutes, until doubled in volume and the mixture has a very creamy consistency with lots of air. Place the bowl in the fridge to cool.
While the previous mixture is cooling, pour the cream into a bowl.
- *If you’re using the cream for cooking (with less than 30% fat): Add the cream, cream cheese, vanilla essence, and about 1 to 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar to taste in the bowl. Beat very well until all ingredients are incorporated and creamy consistency is reached. Taste the mixture and add more sugar if you want it sweeter (remember that more ingredients will need to be added to the ice cream, so it’s best to wait until the end to add more sugar).
- *If you’re using whipped cream (with more than 30% fat): Put the whipped cream and 1 to 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar to taste in a large bowl. Beat them with an electric mixer until the cream is whipped. When the cream is whipped, gradually add the cream cheese.
Take the creamy sugar-egg mixture from the fridge and add it to the cream-cream cheese mixture. Beat well until you have a creamy mixture. Chop the caramel homade bars into small pieces (you can put a few bars in a Ninja type food processor or Thermomix and blend on medium speed for about 5 seconds until you see the bars have turned into small pieces. Here’s the recipe for glutenfree caramel bars.
*You can also add chocolate chips, caramel or any kind of cookies or crackers you’ve at home.
Finally, add the caramel bar or cookie pieces to the ice cream, mix, and pour into a glass dish (if you’ve individual ice cream molds, you can run a little of the mixture into each ice cream mold).
Chill for at least 6- 8 hours. Take the ice cream out of the freezer a few minutes before serving. Serve the ice cream with some Licaonat.
Can the egg be substituted?
Yes, you can replace the 3 egg yolks with 1 big and ripe banana (it won’t be exactly the same, but it’ll also be very good).
