3 Recipes for Your Kitchenaid Ice Cream Maker


Looking for Kitchenaid ice cream maker recipes? We’ve got 3 here for you to enjoy. Get ready to create a treat the entire family will want to dip a spoon into!

One of the joys about homemade ice cream is that you can create that classic “ice cream parlor” taste right at home – while controlling exactly the ingredients that go into every yummy bite. Not only can you all eat strawberry ice cream together, but it can be the berries you’ve picked from your own garden. That’s a special experience and something most people are not able to do.

Creating your own ice cream also gives you the opportunity to customize the ingredients based on specific tastes and preferences. Use your Kitchenaid to satisfy even the most finicky child or adult picky eater.

Vanilla Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Cookie dough ice cream became popular several decades ago and still remains a true favorite, with both kids and adults. After all, who can resist the scrumptious taste of ice cream and cookies?


  • 2 1/2 cups whole milk (not low fat)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup of cream
  • cookie dough – quick cooks may prefer to use pre-sliced dough, or try adding one of your favorite cookie doughs for best tasting ice cream


Warm the milk on the stovetop, careful not to scorch or burn it. Place it in a bowl for now.

Crack the 6 eggs and separate the egg yolks. Put the egg yolks and sugar into your mixing bowl and hand whisk or use your attachment to do so. Whisk quickly until the mixture is thick. This should take about a minute.

Add the hot milk and vanilla to the yolks and sugar. Mix and then place in a saucepan. Cook at low heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until the mixture becomes thick. Do not let it boil.

Place the mixture in your bowl. Now add the cream and whisk until mixed thoroughly. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for about 6 hours until it is chilled.

You’ll want to decide whether to use pre-sliced cookie dough or a favorite home cookie recipe for this ice cream. Your choice of cookie – chocolate, gingersnap, oatmeal raisin – is going to influence the way the ice cream tastes. Prepare your cookie dough and have it chilled, ready to add to the ice cream machine.

Once the mixture has chilled, transfer it to a pitcher. Prepare your KitchenAid ice cream maker according to directions and your personal preferences.

Before starting the ice cream maker, slice your cookie dough into bite sized pieces.

Put the mixture on Speed 1, continue to churn for about 20 minutes. You are going to stop and start the mixer several times to add the cookie dough so it folds well into your ice cream. Add handfuls of cookie dough approximately every 5 minutes or so until completed. With this recipe you’ll have a rich, sweet vanilla ice cream that has a soft serve texture.

Serve as you’ve created the delicious dessert or protect it for later in a sealed container. Remember most homemade ice cream is best eaten within about 4 days.

Strawberry Mango Ice Cream

Looking for an ice cream that is light but also truly satisfies your sweet tooth? The combination of strawberries and mango is unique and quite flavorful.


  • 2 1/2 cups of whole milk
  • 7 eggs
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups of half and half
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


Take the whole milk and put it in a saucepan at about medium heat. Don’t let it boil. Stir it often. Once hot, put it in a bowl and set it aside to work on the other ingredients.

Crack your eggs and separate the egg yolks. Put the egg yolks and sugar into your mixing bowl and put on speed 2 or hand whisk quickly. The ingredients should be well blended and a bit thick.

Now add the hot milk to your mixing bowl and hand whisk or mix at speed 2 into the mixture. Bring this combined mixture back to the saucepan and cook at medium heat, do not boil.

Take hot mixture into a bowl, stir in the half and half, vanilla and salt. Cover this and let it chill for about 8 hours.

Cut up strawberries and mangos into bite sized pieces. Sprinkle approximately 3 teaspoons of sugar over the fruit and let it sit while waiting to make your ice cream.

Prepare your KitchenAid according to directions and your preferences. Use a pitcher or a container that you can pour from, to put the mixture into the freeze bowl. Put your ice cream maker on Speed 1 for about 20 minutes. Mix in the strawberries and mangos as desired.

Double Chocolate Brownie Ice Cream

  • 7 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 cup of cocoa powder
  • 2 1/2 cups half and half
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 package chocolate chunks
  • Walnuts


Put the half and half and cocoa powder in a saucepan at medium heat, stirring to combine them. Next add the heavy cream. Do not let the mixture boil, simply let it become hot then put it in a bowl to the side.

Separate the eggs into egg yolks and put the egg yolks and sugar into a mixing bowl. Whisk them quickly for a few minutes, by hand or with your mixer. Add the mixtures together and put them in a saucepan, letting it become thick. Then put the mixture to the side and add in the vanilla.

Cover and put the mixture in the refrigerator for about 8 hours.

Chop the walnuts into small pieces. Place these and the chocolate chunks to the side to add to the mixture.

Pour into your ice cream maker’s freezer bowl slowly. It should be on Speed 1. Check for the ice cream texture you prefer. Add the walnuts and chocolate chunks as you desire.
