Ice Cream recipes without eggs

I don't have a recipe handy, but look up Philadelphia ice cream.  It's just cream, basically.  It's good because tehre are no "egg substitutes" but is an eggless ice cream by nature and very simple.

I make an eggless (Philadelphia style) vanilla that is pretty well received.  It's not as rich as a custard, or French style, but it is very tasty.

I use:

500 ml heavy cream

250 ml whole milk

100g granulated sugar

a heavy pinch of salt

1 vanilla bean (I've only used Madagascar vanilla, but I hope to get my hands on some Mexican beans soon)

3/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

Cut the vanilla bean in half lengthwise and scrape out the pulp/seeds.

In a medium saucepan, heat 250ml of the heavy cream, the sugar, and the scraped vanilla bean (add both the seeds and the pod), stirring constantly until the sugar is dissolved.

Add all of the remaining ingredients to the pan and remove it from the heat.  Put a lid on it and stow it in the refrigerator until thoroughly chilled.

Remove the bean pods from the mixture and churn in your ice cream machine per the manufacturer's instructions.

In a large bowl, combine the milk, cream, sugar, salt, vanilla, strawberries, and food coloring. Pour the mixture into the freezer bowl of an ice cream maker, and freeze according to manufacturer's directions.

It sounds weird, but you can actually blend frozen bananas into something that very much resembles ice cream - very creamy and rich and smooth. Of course, it has a banana flavor, but you can add chocolate, strawberries, mangoes, etc.

From the Settlement Cookbook, 1944

Philadelphia Ice Cream

1 quart cream

1 cup sugar

1 tsp vanilla

heat 1 cup of the cream, add sugar, cool, add flavoring and remaining cream, freeze in an ice cream freezer (ice cream maker)

that's it - couldn't be simpler, and sounds delicious.  I'd make it but don;t have an ice cream maker

I also recommend any of the Italian gelato recipes for fruit ice cream, which are usually without milk or eggs - I prefer cream-based ice creams, but lots of people like these

I use a rennet its sold at health food store and makes great ice cream. I myself don't like the frozen treat with eggs in it.

I just made a recipe yesterday for Cheesecake Ice Cream from The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz. It had no eggs in it, and it was delicious. That book has many, many recipes without eggs. I highly recommend it.

I've heard really good things about Bittman's cornstarch ice cream base. It's eggless, but cooked.

Reminds me of the coffee can ice cream we used to make in the cub scouts. It used a instant pudding base, which features IIRC pregelatinized starch. It had a very nice texture for such a primitive freezing mechanism.
