Do I seriously need a food processor to prepare ice cream?

I just got my ice cream maker today from costco.com. I don't feel like blowing over a hundred on a food processor, yet.
Does using a blender make any difference in the taste? And what setting is the best? I have an Osterizer 14 speed blender.
I make ice cream all the time, and I use neither a food processor nor a blender - just a saucepan and the ice cream maker.
I make ice cream fairly often. the most complicated piece of equipment involved is a zip lock bag.
You do not need a food processor or a blender. You need an arm, a bowl, and (for cooked custard styles) a saucepan as ricepad noted. Maybe a strainer for a smooth custard base (though I often forgo that step). Enjoy your ice cream maker! Lots of threads--past and present--on homemade ice cream.
