Easy Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

icecreammaker

I love to make homemade ice cream, now. Before? Not so much. I got an electric ice cream maker a few years ago and was so excited to try new ice cream recipes … only to be disappointed that I had either overcooked eggs or the ice cream didn’t freeze well (many got too icy). It seems like I tried hundreds of recipes (probably only about 10 or so in reality) and I got so frustrated. So, I decided to combine the aspects of several recipes into one and see how it worked out … luckily it went great. This is the ice cream that I find tastes the creamiest, freezes the best, and is a great base for toppings.

First, you need one of these:

Doesn’t have to be this one exactly, but this is what I happen to have and love.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 1 pkg instant vanilla pudding mix (you could use other flavors, too)
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar (superfine dissolves best)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (use the best you can find)
  • 1 small pinch of salt

DIRECTIONS:

Simply whisk all the ingredients together until sugar is dissolved. Pour into electric ice cream maker. Finish according to ice cream maker’s instructions.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS:

Use in ice cream pies or top with fresh fruit, candies, or drizzle with fudge topping.
