Hereof, can I freeze soft serve ice cream?
If you were to freeze soft ice cream, you’d lose the advantage of item 1. In addition, your freezer takes longer to freeze ice cream than an ice cream maker, which may result in ice crystals in the ice cream.
Herein, how do you make regular soft serve ice cream?
In a large bowl, combine ice cream and frozen whipped topping using a rubber spatula or a potato masher. If mixture is too melted, place in freezer for 10-15 minutes until semi-frozen. Serve immediately for a softer ice cream (this is what we do) or transfer to a loaf pan and freeze for 1-2 hours until firm.

The Cuisinart ICE-21 made some of the smoothest and most delicious ice cream in our tests. This machine, which uses a frozen bowl insert, is more affordable than a compressor model.
