We All Scream for Ice Cream!

This might have been the last unopened wedding gift that we received over a year ago, time sure does fly when you're having fun! I don't know what put me in the mood to try it out but I decided it would be great to make our own ice cream plus I can make it dairy free this way (total bonus for me). My top two favorite ice cream flavors are chocolate and mint chocolate chip. Those seemed kinda daunting for my first run at this so I decided on plain 'old vanilla. 

I found this super easy recipe at Deep South Dish

Vanilla Ice Cream Ice Cream
From the Kitchen of Deep South Dish

1 cup of ice cold whole milk
3/4 cup of granulated sugar
2 cups of ice cold heavy cream
1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract

Just mix all the igrediants together and pour into the mixer. 25 minutes later you have ICE CREAM!

A couple things to note: The ice cream is more like soft serve but you can put it in the freezer to harden it. Next the bowl of the maker has to be frozen for 6-22 hours so you can't just pull it out of the box and start. Lastly the recipe above tastes very good but I think it had a whipped cream flavor so if you don't like that you might want to try something else. 

I can't wait to try more flavors, it's such a fun kitchen gadget. I immediately started thinking of how fun it would be to serve homemade ice cream to family and friends!

Do y'all have any recipes to share?



  1. As promised- my cashew/coconut milk peanut butter ice cream!

    Mix 1 cup peanut butter and 2/3 cup sugar until smooth. Add 2 cups coconut milk, 1 cup cashew milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Blend until sugar is dissolved and let sit for 1-2 hours in the refrigerator. Pour into your ice cream maker- sometimes closer to the end I will add semi-sweet chocolate chunks or chopped up Justin's Peanut Butter cups!

    1. This sounds delicious, I can't wait to try it out! Thank you so much!
