I have read that some of DIMMERS who do not have a car or are homebound order their groceries delivered. I made a little discovery this weekend that may help with ice cream. During Thanksgiving and Christmas, in my retail store dairy cooler, I find quarts or half gallons of liquid custard. This is usually used to make fast eggnog for parties (the liquor hasn't been added yet). The lovely blend is also pasteurized so you don't have to worry about the raw eggs and milk in it. This weekend I needed some vanilla ice cream and did not have any. I had the custard tho, so I poured a cup or so of it in plastic containers and let it freeze. After a couple of hours I had some really tasty vanilla ice cream. (Because it is not cranked, it has some ice crystals in it, but those are good too.) I don't see why you couldn't add chocolate or other flavorings to it as well.
