homemade ice cream

One of our goals for this year is that we can only eat ice cream if we make it ourselves. We've been doing just that! It saves us some money since ice cream is getting so expensive and it keeps us from eating as much since we have to take the time to make it. So far we've enjoyed some yummy flavors including peanut butter chocolate chip and peanut butter caramel cashew. We buy the cream at Costco for $2 or $3, everything else we have on hand usually. YUM!


  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  1. Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more. Pour in the cream, milk, and vanilla and whisk to blend.
  3. Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze following the manufacturer's instructions.

  1. i am also in favor of the idea of only being able to eat a treat if you make it. but nate doesn't even like ice cream, so it has silently vacated its place in my life, too. it's sad, really. do you have to have an ice cream maker to make it?

  2. Hmmm... I'm not sure Melissa. I bet you could just freeze it after you mix it all together. The consistency might not be exactly right, but who knows.
