Totally forgot that we received an ice cream maker for one of our wedding gifts (Thanks Moe and Clarissa!). This poor maker has been sitting in the cabinet for a year and a half and never been used. However, now that I know it’s super easy to make my own ice cream, gelato, sorbet and frozen yogurt, i’m sure it’ll get plenty of use.
Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream:
- 1 1/2 cups whole milk
- 1 1/8 cups sugar
- 3 cups heavy cream
- 1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract
Combine milk and sugar in a bowl and mix on low speed until sugar is dissolved. Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla.
Add mixture to your ice cream maker and make according to your machines directions.
