{Best Vanilla Ice Cream}

I recently bought an Ice-cream Maker! It has changed my world! There really is nothing better than creamy, soft, delicious homemade Ice Cream. This is the first recipe that I tried and it’s great because there are so many different things to add to it. I added strawberries. YUMMY! I can’t wait until peaches are in season, how good does that sound? I hope every one has a fun, safe and delicious 4th of July šŸ™‚ xo

1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup sugar
pinch of salt
2 cups heavy cream
1 Tbs pure vanilla extract

In a medium bowl, use a hand mixer on low speed or whisk to combine the milk and sugar and salt until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla. Cover and refrigerate 1-2 hours or overnight.

Pour the mixture into the freezer bowl of your ice cream maker and let mix until thickened, about 15-20 minutes. The ice cream will be soft and creamy in texture. If you want your ice cream more firm transfer to an air tight container and freeze for about 2 hours.

*If you want a firmer ice cream with add ins, make sure to add them in before you freeze for 2 hours.

Ideas for add ins:

Fresh Fruit:
Blueberries
Cherries
Mangoes
Peaches
Raspberries
Strawberries

Pomegranate Seeds

Candy:
Chocolate Chips
Heath bars
Peppermints

M&Ms
Oreos
Brownies
Caramel sauce
Fudge sause

Nuts:
Almonds
Cashews
Hazelnuts
Pecans
Walnuts
