Could this be ma

Could this be made some how without a ice cream mixer? The reason I ask is because churned Ice Cream is the old time way with the churn by hand mixer we had growing up and I can't find one! The one we had as kids is wore out from us using it as adults..my mom n dads favorite Ice is Butter Pecan n my mom has had a massive stroke in Nursing home for rehab n we wanted to do a cookout with them my brothers and I and would love to have this for them. Can you please help me Paula my Mom watched you all the time please help me.
