You need an ice cream machine to make ice cream.

If there's no machine available, it would be better if you at least saw the ice cream being made in a machine, so you can get a general idea how to go about it.

Basically, you get a simple ice cream recipe ( lots of milk, egg yolks, maybe cream, and sugar. Check the web for an easy recipe).

The ingredients have to be mixed and heated.

The trick is to continously churn( stir) the ice cream mixture at  a very cold/freezing temperature. This is normally done using rock salt and ice cubes. The ice cream mix is normally in one container, which is then put into a bigger container containing the ice cubes and salt.

The contents of both containers don't mix- the salt and ice are to maintain the temperature and prevent ice crystals from forming. That way the ice cream can have a creamy texture.

I'm sure a simple version of an ice cream machine could probably be made in Nigeria, if people set their minds to it.


Ur post made me laff all thru. anyway maybe u are not just cut out for experimental cullinery, but never giv up maybe someday u'll get it.

Thanks cute Bottom and Mandi.

i'll try out the recipes and then get back on my results



i wont be tempted by this kinda thing no more. I once tried to make toffees and i burnt my hand (still have the scar)

tried to make bread and it didnt rise.

tried to make shortbread, it sucked

tried to make rice pudding, i ended up boiling d rice 4 2 hours, cursing at the damn thing to get soft. ended up tasting like soggy rice soaked in milk. even burnt my mouth cos i was so eager to taste it.



1. palm wine

2. cassava milk

3. guinea-fowl egg

4. shrimps

5. sugar cane

6. baby milk

light up a spliff, mix ingredients in a bucket, add some something and boil till it reaches boiling point, err, (falling asleep, )


it seems no one eva read posts on nairaland.

well as regards info on ice cream u can just make it with milk solid non fats and monodigycerides of fatty acids and some emulsion and stabilizers

not to bore u with all that bullsht monodigycerides of fatty acids is just sea weed like vanilla esccence. and u can just buy a powder mix from commelle u just add water and use it.

seun u need an ice cream machine forget about fabricating it, it will not last u well i mean u may not be able to get a real solid form.

this is a business i have been into for 8yrs now. i know what it takes to run the business well

if u r in doubt just mailme with ur questions i will be sure to reply


p.s only real questions ok

and u can read my post on the business post that intoduces my company ok







Cardamom Ice Cream. No ice-cream machine needed.

**You can substitute with any flavor you refer.


1. In a large saucepan stir together sugar and flour. Gradually stir in 2 cups of the milk. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cook 1 minute more. Stir about 1 cup of the hot mixture into beaten egg yolks; return to remaining hot mixture in saucepan. Cook and stir just until mixture returns to boiling. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla, cardamom, lemon peel, and remaining milk. Cool slightly. Cover the surface with plastic wrap.

2. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or up to 24 hours. Stir in whipping cream.

I also happen to be interested, but it seems I need an "ice-cream machine". How do I fabricate it?
