Sweet Tooth? Here's a Simple DIY No-Churn Ice Cream Recipe

By Heather Brooker &bull Published April 21, 2020 &bull Updated on April 21, 2020 at 12:24 pm

Warm weather is on the way for Southern California, and everyone is staying safe at home. So what better time to learn how to make your own homemade ice cream with ingredients that most people already have at home.

This simple recipe was created by Dr. Maya Warren, an ice cream scientist with a passion for ice cream. Dr. Maya has worked for Cold Stone Creamery and Haagen Dazs creating unique recipes and flavors. She says she loves teaching kids of all ages how to make this sweet frozen treat. As if that isn't cool enough, she was also the winner of “The Amazing Race” season 25.

For this recipe, I recruited by daughter Channing to help because at 7-years-old, she is also very passionate about ice cream. Her favorite flavor at the moment is mint chocolate chip. Dr. Maya walked us through step-by-step as we whipped, and folded our ice cream without the help of an ice cream maker.

Dr. Maya says the great thing about this recipe is that it’s easy to experiment with your own favorite flavors. Feeling like a banana cinnamon ice cream? Or bacon and chocolate? Give it a try and see how it tastes.

About Cold Stone Creamery
Cold Stone Creamery delivers the Ultimate Ice Cream Experience through a community of franchisees who are passionate about ice cream. The secret recipe for smooth and creamy ice cream is handcrafted fresh daily in each store, and then customized by combining a variety of mix-ins on a frozen granite stone. Headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona , Cold Stone Creamery is a subsidiary of Kahala, one of the fastest growing franchising companies in the world, with a portfolio of 15 quick-service restaurant brands. Cold Stone Creamery operates more than 1,500 locations in 25 countries.

The company was co-founded in 1988 by Donald and Susan Sutherland, [4] who sought ice cream that was neither hard-packed nor soft-serve. Publicity materials describe it as "smooth and creamy super-premium ice cream." Cold Stone Creamery opened its first store that year in Tempe, Arizona. [2] The original Cold Stone Creamery, store #0001, is in operation today near the same intersection (southwest corner of McClintock & Southern) as the original Tempe location. [5] The store moved from the original location to the current location in the early 1990s.

The company has maintained the same concept created by Steve Herrell who founded Steve's Ice Cream. Patrons first select what flavor of ice cream they would like and then choose from a number of mix-ins to be folded into the ice cream. Mix-ins include candies, nuts, brownies and syrups. Cold Stone derives its name from the frozen granite slab that employees use to fold mix-ins into the ice cream. As thanks to customers, Cold Stone employees sing a song when they receive a tip. [6]

In 1995, Cold Stone Creamery opened its first franchise store in Tempe, Arizona. [2] Shortly after, a second location (first out of state) was opened in Camarillo, California. Cold Stone Creamery is now the sixth best-selling brand of ice cream in the US and operates stores in Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, Thailand, [7] Brazil, Puerto Rico, Indonesia, Guam, China, Mexico, Bahrain, Egypt, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kenya, [8] Trinidad and Tobago, Qatar, Nigeria, Kuwait, the Philippines, Turkey, Pakistan, Bangladesh and India. In 2008, Cold Stone opened its first European franchise in Copenhagen, Denmark. Three more stores were later opened in other parts of the country. In January 2006, the company was named the 11th fastest-growing franchise by Entrepreneur magazine. In June 2009, the company opened its first locations in Canada. [ citation needed ] As of 2012, three stores had opened in Singapore. On January 3, 2020, Cold Stone Creamery announced that it would close its doors on January 31, 2020 in Singapore. In March 2015, Cold Stone opened its first location in Turkey's capital Ankara. In 2015 Cold Stone Creamery opened its first location in El Salvador in Multiplaza Mall. As of 2021, there is one store in Dhaka in Bangladesh at Uttara. As of 2019 there are 21 stores across India.

In May 2007, Cold Stone Creamery merged with Kahala Corp to form Kahala-Cold Stone, which collectively owns 13 brands. Doug Ducey, former president and CEO of Cold Stone Creamery, and later Governor of Arizona, was named CEO of the newly established company. [9] Kevin Blackwell, the former CEO of Kahala, became chairman of the board and chief strategist. However, in September 2007, Ducey announced he was leaving the company. [10] Blackwell was named CEO. [11] In 2013, the Serruya family, based in Toronto, Ontario, purchased a majority interest in Kahala and changed the name to Kahala Brands to better align with the focus of the business. [12] [ non-primary source needed ]

Co-branding Edit

The parent company of Cold Stone Creamery, Kahala Brands, announced in February 2009 that it had reached an agreement with Canadian coffee shop chain Tim Hortons to open up 100 co-branded stores in the United States after successfully testing two locations in Rhode Island. [13] The strategic alliance was intended to pave the way for Tim Hortons to operate in more US locations while allowing Cold Stone Creamery to expand into Canada. The most notable co-branded store opened in August 2009 when Tim Hortons moved into three Cold Stone Creamery locations in New York City, including its flagship Times Square location.

In June 2009, Cold Stone Creamery started testing the Canadian market by opening seven co-branded locations with Tim Hortons in Toronto, Oakville, Mississauga, Hamilton, Pickering, Sudbury, and Halifax, Nova Scotia. [14] They had locations in every Canadian province except for Newfoundland and Labrador. [15]

The Tim Hortons venture followed on the footsteps of a similar co-branding efforts in 2007 and 2008, but ended in 2014. [16] Cold Stone franchisees in New York City began partnering with Soup Kitchen International to sell soup in their stores beginning in late 2007. [17] In 2008, the company signed an agreement with the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory to open seven locations in the Western US. The venture is designed to bring in customers on a year-round basis as opposed to the seasonal draws that each company experiences. [18] The mingling of Cold Stone and Rocky Mountain led to more than 10% increase in weekly sales in Rocky Mountain stores after co-branding. [19]

All ice cream creations are offered in four sizes: Kid's size (3 oz (85 g)), "Like It" (5 oz (140 g)), "Love It" (8 oz (230 g)), and "Gotta Have It" (12 oz (340 g)). [20] Also offered are milkshakes and smoothies, among them the Cold Stone PB&C its large size was designated by Men's Health Magazine as the most unhealthy drink in the United States for two consecutive years. [21] [22] The drink has 2,010 calories, 131 grams of fat with 68 grams saturated fat, and 153 grams of sugar. [21]

Cold Stone Creamery: Scoop It Up, a simulation video game developed by Zoo Publishing, was released for the Wii in 2009. [23]

Licensing Edit

Cold Stone has entered into partnerships with other companies to promote brand name products inside its stores. The first major partnership the company entered into was with Kraft Foods for its Jell-O brand in 2009. Cold Stone introduced a series of flavors of ice cream based on popular Jell-O pudding flavors Chocolate, Butterscotch, Banana, and Vanilla. Because the pudding additives cause the ice cream to gel, it was recently noted that these flavors do not melt. [24]

Externally, a 2008 licensing agreement with Jelly Belly had a line of jelly beans flavored like some of Cold Stone's most popular ice cream flavors. [25]

There have been allegations by independent franchises that Cold Stone's business practices have put them at a competitive disadvantage. These former franchises claim that the parent company opens locations too close to each other, requires expensive remodeling and overstates potential revenues and income. [26] Other franchises have contended that is not the case and that they are experiencing growth amid financial uncertainties and higher costs associated with fuel and energy prices. [27]

In June 2008, The Wall Street Journal examined the issue. The article stated that a large number of locations, approximately 16–20%, of Cold Stone Creamery franchises have closed or were put up for sale by their owners, many of whom had suffered significant financial losses due to their investment. The article included claims by franchisees that the company had misrepresented the average revenues of Cold Stone stores and acted in ways that reduced stores' profit margins. A company spokeswoman said that the number of stores for sale was "at par with industry expectations" in light of "the economically challenging times." [28]

CNBC documentary and lawsuit Edit

In December 2010 lawyers from Cold Stone Creamery threatened a lawsuit over some of the contents of a then-upcoming documentary by CNBC. [29]

Behind the Counter: The Untold Story of Franchising reported on the failures and successes of franchising. After several edits the program was broadcast on CNBC on March 21, 2011. Brands such as Dunkin' Donuts and Five Guys were highlighted as successful franchise brands. Cold Stone Creamery's executives and corporate lawyers were interviewed. The lawsuit was discussed with former franchisees and the litigation threats with CNBC. An apparently successful Cold Stone franchise was also featured. Another expose was not aired due to threats of litigation and stores that were closed for years appeared on search engines for some unknown reason.

While the company was originally headquartered in Tempe, in 1997 the company moved its headquarters to Scottsdale, Arizona. [2] In July 2005 Cold Stone moved into its current headquarters. The two-story building has classroom space, a product development laboratory kitchen, and a training store. [30]


Cold Stone Creamery A Revolutionary Evolution

The founders of Cold Stone Creamery, Donald and Susan Sutherland, scoured the world in search of the perfect ice cream. Not surprisingly, they found that not all ice cream is created equal. From traditional hard-packed to soft serve varieties, until Donald and Susan pursued their "Ice Cream Dream"– we were stuck with some pretty disappointing alternatives. But after 1988 and the opening of the First Cold Stone Creamery in Tempe, Arizona, things changed. The Sutherlands fundamentally redefined ice cream and the world would never be the same.

Cold Stone Creamery ice cream is categorized by industry experts as "Super Premium."

We are proud of our heritage as Ice Cream Innovators. This heritage is based on a tradition of continuously redefining plain old regular ice cream into something truly extraordinary. In the USA, we call every ice cream we serve a "Creation" – because each one is a work of art. Freshly made, smooth, creamy ice cream blended on a frozen granite stone with endless combinations – fruits, nuts, candy, cookies, brownies…you name it – you can mix in to your heart's content.

Since its entrant to Nigeria in 2012, the leading Quick Service Restaurant company has grown exponentially and continuously nurtured the drive to extend its footprint across the African market.

The milestone achievement and development will better position the company in its contribution to Nigeria and Africa’s economy. Currently home to over 3000 staff members across Africa, the company is committed to continuously provide job and business opportunities across the continent.

Group Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director Eat’N’Go Limited, Patrick McMichael said that expanding into East Africa represents a very exciting time in the growth of the organization and also a strategic investment for the firm and its stakeholders. “Over the years, we have fostered the mission to not just bring the best QSR brands to Africa, but to directly impact on Africa’s economy and we are glad we are finally on the way to making this happen.

9 Cool Food Trucks You Never Even Knew Existed

Sure, you've seen plenty of grilled cheese trucks over the years, but did you know there are oyster trucks, champagne trucks, and tots trucks all over as well? Here are just a few of the most innovative food trucks across the country.

For six years now, Cold Stone Creamery has offered a catered ice cream truck service in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut. They do a lot of corporate events, weddings, private events, and festivals. Keep that in mind the next time your birthday rolls around if you live in one of those areas. Right now, they even have pre-ordering for the trucks, so they can offer a contactless service. Who knew??

Take your pick of super fresh East and West coast selections&mdashthey do it all here. The seafood and raw bar-focused truck has a brick and mortar original location, but fans love the uniqueness of oysters on wheels.

Listen. This is a "fully renovated vintage canned ham camper trailer that has been converted into a mobile bar serving Prosecco and other wine offerings on tap" that you can call up for your next birthday party. What more do you need to know. (Fun fact: Lance Bass helps run this truck!!)

Another brick and mortar offshoot, this truck serves insane bacon-focused and bacon-themed foods all over the city. Bacon snow cones, anyone??

A Philly fav since 2013, the tiny tot cart frequents colleges and late-night wedding parties. Because (1) they know their audience and (2) who doesn't love cheese-drenched potatoes come midnight?

The D.C. mainstay has an exclusively burrito-filled menu. except for that side of fried mac & cheese bites. You should probably get those too. You know, just to chase the burrito with. Just in case.

Bernie's is, as you might imagine, a burger-forward food truck inside a converted school bus. Pictured here? Their loaded fries, which they take "just as seriously."

Though the truck's titular Biker Jim has opened restaurants since he began his cart business years ago, his gourmet hot dog carts remain perpetually popular. That's probably because you can build your own hot dog from a selection of 15 homemade sausages.

Lest the picture of kids lined up outside of this colorful creation mislead you, no, this isn't any regular old ice cream truck. It's Hawaiian-style shaved ice in the middle of South Dakota. They shave, roll, and flavor ice like you've never seen.


Recipe Summary

  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 2 egg yolks, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • ¾ cup white cake mix, sifted

Whisk together milk, sugar, egg yolks, vanilla, cream, and cake mix in a saucepan until well blended. Cook over medium-low heat until mixture reaches 160 degrees F (70 degrees C), stirring frequently. Remove from heat and place in the refrigerator or freezer until liquid is cold.

Pour the chilled mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions until it reaches "soft-serve" consistency. Transfer ice cream to a one- or two-quart lidded plastic container cover surface with plastic wrap and seal. For best results, ice cream should ripen in the freezer for at least 2 hours or overnight.
