How do I Make Ice Cream Out of Jell-O Pudding Mix?

Homemade ice cream can be quite a project. Most recipes call for a custard base, which requires careful heating, cooling and whisking before you pour your ingredients into an ice cream maker. An easier way to make ice cream is to use Jell-O pudding mix as a base. The powdered pudding contains thickeners, which will stabilize your ice cream without meticulous kitchen chemistry. The result will be a thick, sweet and creamy dessert that will impress your friends and family.

Step 1

Prepare your tools and ingredients. Read the manufacturer's instructions for your ice cream maker. You may need to chill the bowl for several hours before you make ice cream. Put milk in the fridge for a few hours to chill.

Step 2

Whisk together milk, sugar, vanilla extract and pudding mix in a large bowl. Continue mixing until the liquid is smooth and free of lumps. Pudding mix is already sweet, so add sugar gradually to avoid an overly saccharine dessert.

Step 3

Pour the pudding mixture into the ice-cream maker bowl and follow the manufacturer's instructions.
