An ice cream maker works by churning—slowly stirring—a mixture (usually milk, cream, sugar, and egg yolks) as it freezes. This incorporates air into the mixture, so you wind up with scoopable ice cream instead of a solid ice cube. In this recipe, whipping the cream in the blender traps lots of air inside of it. The air trapped inside the fluffy whipped cream takes the place of the air normally incorporated by an ice cream maker. Ice cream for all!
