Grandpa gave us one of his ice cream makers (he has started making some really "gourmet" flavors!) and although we haven't branched out much (we've made about 4 batches of good 'ol vanilla), we are just loving being able to make our very own homemade ice cream! Today I let the kids sit on the counter after I had everything assembled so they could watch it mix and spin - which was fine until Oliver tried to stick in his hand and Audrey tried to stick in her face!
After playing around with the recipe a bit - here is the "best" version of vanilla ice cream we've come up with so far! I'd like to do a little research on how to make a lower fat version - I can't even IMAGINE how fattening this is (and it's so yummy I simply can't eat just a small portion!)
Super Fattening (and delicious) Vanilla Ice Cream
(made in Cuisinart Frozen Yogurt, Ice Cream & Sorbet maker)
1.5 C whole milk
3/4 C sugar
3 C heavy whipping cream
2 tsp vanilla
Mix whole milk and sugar in a mixer by hand or on low for 1-2 minutes until sugar is dissolved. Add heavy cream and vanilla. Pour into ice cream maker and let mix/freeze for 25 minutes. Pour into freezer-safe bowl and let harden to desired consistency!
