We have been promising Emily that we would make homemade ice cream since the beginning of the summer, but have not had a chance until now!! We used a very simple recipe but it was still delicious. It tasted more like frozen fresh whipped cream so we decided we needed to try some other recipes too.
Simple Vanilla Ice Cream
You will need:
1 cup milk
3/4 cup sugar
1-2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups heavy cream
Pour 1 cup milk and 3/4 sugar into a bowl
Mix with a mixer on low speed until sugar is dissolved in the milk.
Add the vanilla
and 2 cups of heavy cream
Mix to combine
Pour mixture into prepared ice cream maker.

Wait for the ice cream maker to work its magic. It took ours about 25 minutes.
Keep checking to see if it looks like ice cream yet.
Serve up your yummy ice cream.
We have a very fun soft serve with mix ins ice cream maker. My Mother-in-law gave it to us for Christmas before Emily was born. Sadly I have only used it a few times before this. But, now I think we are all hooked. We are already trying to decide which flavor we will create next!!
Emily couldn’t have been happier!!
