What is a good soy milk ice cream recipe with no gelatin or tofu for a standard ice cream maker?

AnswerMy son is lactose intolerant, so we make ice cream with vanilla flavored soy milk, and usually add bananas and blueberries at about the half way point. It is delicious, healthy and satisfying. We have used other fresh fruits as well, such as peaches and strawberries. We have also made chocolate ice cream with the chocolate soy milk, and added nuts and tiny marshmallows.


The best vanilla ice cream I ever made was from soy cream purchased by mistake in place of cow milk cream. Ice cream made (mostly) from cream and with egg yolks is actually much easier to make than from milk, as the higher fat content means it is creamier and there is little ice crystal formation, so you can make it into any container that goes into the freezer, no need for a special ice cream maker. The recipe couldn't be simpler, involving only soy cream and milk, egg yolks, sugar and vanilla. Here is my recipe for about one liter of French vanilla soy ice cream:

  • Fill a crock with granulated white sugar, add a few fresh pods (or beans) of Bourbon vanilla, they should be dark black and slightly oily. Every day for the next few days, remove the vanilla pods, mix the granulated sugar in the crock and replace the pods. This will prevent the moisture in the pods to form a block of sugar around the pods. Once the pods are dry enough, you have a whole crock of strongly scented vanilla sugar to use in any recipe. Replace the sugar as you use it, and replace the vanilla pods every 6 or 12 months depending on your usage.
  • Prepare 2 large pans, one of boiling water, one filled with ice cubes.
  • Simmer 2/3 pint of soy milk and one pint of soy cream with two vanilla pod halved lengthwise to let the seeds infuse into the milk. Remove the vanilla pod and let it stand for a couple of minutes.
  • While the milk and cream cools down just a bit, whisk 6 large egg yolks with 1 cup of vanilla sugar (see above) until frothy.
  • Incorporate the milk into the egg mixture with the whisk, very slowly at first, to prevent any curdling, faster as the mixture gets warmer.
  • Put back the whole mixture into the large pan of lightly boiling water, and stir constantly with a wooden spoon until a custard is formed and coats the spoon.
  • Move the bowl or pan containing the custard into the ice water pan and let it rest for two hours, stirring a few times. If you have an ice cream maker, you can put the mixture straight into it at that stage.
  • If not, replace the ice water bath, put everything in the fridge for another couple of hours, it should then be cold enough to be put into the freezer. Stir a few more times, the ice cream should be smooth and ready in another couple of hours.

Tips: For a stronger French vanilla flavor, add a few drops of vanilla liquor to the custard just before cooling it. I like the look and taste of the black vanilla seeds, so I usually add a bit of vanilla powder to the milk and cream. Adjust sugar depending on taste. Add some fleur de sel sea salt flakes to the custard just before freezing for more nomnomnominess.

Beat the remaining 6 egg whites, add sugar and ground hazelnuts or almonds to make macarons, they will be perfect with the ice cream.

Where can I find parts for my Richmond Cedar Works ice cream maker?

Richmond Cedar Works is long gone. It was purchased
by Dimon (a tobacco leaf processor also located in
Danville, VA) in 1967. In 1990, Dimon sold it's
ice cream maker business to Rival Products (of crock pot
fame). The web site is,
customer service is 1-800-557-4825 (if that doesn't work,
try 1-800-546-5637).

That is a quote from Yesterday's Tractor.

Good luck.

Based on the above information I contact Rival, regarding obtaining a manual. There reply is as follows:

"Thank you for writing Rival; a division of Jarden Consumer Solutions.

The information you received is incorrect, we do not own Richmond Cedar works We do apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused, but we do encourage you to view our current line of products at If you need assistance locating a comparable product, please feel free to call our customer service team at (800) 557-4825.

If you go to the Rival site their "Rival® 5 Quart Wood Bucket Ice Cream Maker Model: 8550-X" sure looks like the Richmond Cedar Works" model though so maybe the manuals are compatible

How do you use an antique ice cream maker?

You put your ice cream mixture in the container and close it and put it in the old fashion ice cream maker and layer Ice and rock salt on the outside, if you have the hand crank type then you crank it for a long time. If you have an electric one you turn it until you hear the motor start to "work heavier" That means you have soft ice cream.

Edit: Antique ice cream makers won't be electric.

Any problems with soft serve ice cream machines?

I work at a place that serves soft serve ice cream, we are located outdoors, our biggest problem is that the machines we use are not made for the outdoors. We are open in the summer so it takes longer for the mix to freeze. The machines we use are at a baseball stadium, and we get extremely busy during the middle innings, during this time it is common that the machines cannot keep the mix frozen during this time, and we have to turn away customers. The main problem we have found is with the freezing of the mix.

What is the best ice cream maker on the market?

This depends greatly on what you are looking to use it for. If it is being used for personal use, then you could check out the EdgeStar Portable Ice Maker. If you are looking to use it for commercial use, you may want to check out a Summit machine, which would be much more expensive, but would have a much higher ice making capacity.

How do you clean an ice cream machine?

If you have an electric compressor machine: The bowls and dashers should be cleaned with hot soapy water, rinsed and dried. The rest of the machine should be cleaned using a damp rag (electrical components should never be placed in water).

Machines using salt and ice can simply be cleaned in hot soapy water, rinsed and dried.

If all you have is a bowl that is prefrozen in the freezer clean it the same as a machine using salt and ice.

Can you use snow in your ice cream maker instead of ice?

You can use snow in your ice cream maker. If you knew how an ice cream maker worked you wouldn't taste the snow. its just to cool it. Snow is the same thing as ice just thin. Snow is frozen water.
