  • Rochelle

    You can make these vegan if you make vegan sweetened condensed milk out of coconut milk and then substitute full fat coconut milk for the half and half and any non-dairy milk for the whole milk. It will just be a lot of work.

    • We used the WildSide or WildSide+ jar, and found it gave the best results. You can use the FourSide jar, but it may take a little longer and a bit more work.

  • Tori

    Was excited to see 9 NEW ice-cream recipes…..but sad to see that none are dairy-free. Would love to see at least 1 alternative!

  • nancy

    Is there a good substitute for sweetened condensed milk? I need to stay away from regular sugar. Honey, agave, or stevia is okay.

    • You can substitute the whole milk with almond milk, but the ice cream will not come out as thick. If it’s not the consistency you want, you can put the ice cream in another container and let it freeze for a bit.

  • Jorge Barbosa

    Any chance of having these in UK version?
    Bought my Blendtec in UK but I struggle a lot with working out U.S. Measurements, and to make it worst I’m Portuguese, to work out UK measurements it’s a task itself 🙂
    I know I can use converters but for example 1 ice tray of ice cubes, are the U.S. Ice trays the same as UK ones? Doubt, the fridges are different enough 🙂

    • Semi-skimmed milk is the same as fat-free or skim milk in the USA. The best UK equivalent/substitute of half and half is Single Cream, though a little milk may need to be added to make it less thick. Half and half is 12-15% fat and single cream is 18% fat.

  • Shauna

    Hi there – when you say “2 cups whole milk cubes” is that equivalent to 500g of milk cubes?
    thanks

        Can you please share the recipe for the mint chocolate chip ice cream that is made when they demo the blendtec at Costco? It is made with almond milk and is delicious. I was so disappointed when it was not in the recipe book.

        • Mint chocolate chip Ice Cream
          6 fl oz half and half or almond milk
          2 fl oz agave
          1 scoop vanilla protein powder
          1/2 tsp peppermint extract
          2-2.5 cups ice
          1/2 cup chocolate chips

          Add milk, agave, protein powder, peppermint extract and ice to jar and secure lid. Blend on Low for 15 seconds, then blend on Medium High for 30 seconds. Add chocolate chips and press “Pulse” to chop the chips.

  • Cindy

    I’m curious about the mint chocolate chip. I’m guessing the spinach is for color. I don’t have peppermint extract but I do have mint growing in the garden. (I’m embarrassed to say I don’t know if it’s peppermint or spearmint or what.) If I sub in my mint for the peppermint extract, is it just to taste, or is there an amount I should target? Do you think the mint leaves would add the color I’d be looking for?

    • Mint leaves may be substituted for peppermint extract. The peppermint extract is for flavor, so add mint leaves until the desired flavor is reached. The spinach is for color. The mint leaves will add some color, but not as much as the spinach, so keep the spinach if you want a green ice cream.

    • We do not have any sugar free ice cream recipes. Because of the fruit that is in the ice cream recipes, they will always have sugar content, but we can definitely look into some sugar free options.

    • Jessica Andreasen

      The sweetened condensed milk can be substituted for sugar and more half and half. We’d recommend decreasing the frozen milk a little to help improve blending. Play around with the half and half and sugar to find the right consistency of ice cream. Let us know how it turns out!

    • Jessica Andreasen

      Hi Josee, we haven’t tested it with lactose free whole milk. You can always try the recipe as-is and taste it and add what you think it may need more of! Let us know how it turns out. 🙂

      • Josee

        Tries de vanilla ice cream, the oreo cookie one and the blueberry one but replaced the blueberry with strawberry. As soon as ready all three were VERY good. However, once in the freezer they all turned into a big ice cube. Is that normal? Am I supposed to be able to freeze it and eat it later without waiting for it to unfreeze?

        • Jessica Andreasen

          Some freezers are too cold. Another factor that is probably contributing is the lower fat content. You can use heavy cream instead of half and half and that should help. We haven’t tested it but other people have suggested adding a few teaspoons of hard alcohol (like rum or vodka) to help keep it from getting rock-hard solid.

  • Jeanette

    I am sooooooooooo excited to be a blended owner I have used it now for about 3 months. I used to use a ninja and was sold on the quality of smoothies until me blend Tec. I to loved the easy to use features and textures of the funded products, I recently switched from the designer series to the 625 … I just need to know which option makes great margaritas because there is no crushed ice button. ..please help

  • Jessica

    I followed the vanilla step by step but it came out more like think soup (but cold) I have the wildside. Any suggestions?

    • Jessica Andreasen

      Try using more frozen milk cubes and/or transferring it to another container and freezing it for a couple of hours. The ice cream you see in our picture was placed in a freezer for a couple of hours before being scooped. Happy blending!

  • John

    I live in the UK and have had my blendtec for many years just looking at the recipes for ice cream what on earth is half and half

    john ed

    • Jessica Andreasen

      Try transferring it to another container and putting it in the freezer for a couple of hours (or until desired consistency is reached).

    • Jessica Andreasen

      You can but using milk only probably isn’t creamy enough to make it ice cream – it’ll be runnier and more milkshake-like.

  • Cathleen

    Does anyone have a recipe for chocolate peanut butter ice cream, not the one with bananas, I would appreciate thanks
