  4. Secure and lock lid.
  5. Choose the Ice Cream or Frozen Desserts program and pause the program as needed to use the tamper to better disperse the frozen pudding cubes.
  6. Once program has completed, transfer ice cream to a freezer-safe container.

Recipe Notes

Helpful Tip: This type of instant ice cream will get creamier as it softens, so do not be afraid to let it thaw before serving. Try topping it with hot fudge or hot caramel sauce.
