I stood on my toes stretching my five-foot-tall frame to an upper cabinet where I store those rarely used kitchen gadgets. My finger tips prodded the bottom edge of the door. I was just a moment away from victory. Suddenly, a sandwich press, a mini George Foreman Grill, and an ice cream maker tumbled off the shelf. Since I have years of experience dealing with appliances that clearly have something against vertically challenged cooks, I was able to catch them all. Still, I wondered, “Why on earth do I have all this stuff?”

You really don’t need a kitchen full of machines to turn out great food. These eleven no-churn flavors prove it. As you click through the gallery you will see oh-so-bad for you indulgences made with things like cookie dough and candy. You will also find some healthier choices, including a one-ingredient sorbet. There’s even an option to cool off your furry friends this summer. So grab a big spoon and prepare to enjoy hassle-free homemade ice cream.
