- 1 cup whole milk
- 2 cups heavy cream
- ¾ cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
- Optional: additional flavorings, such as chocolate chips, fruit puree, or crushed cookies
How To Make
- In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the heavy cream, whole milk, and granulated sugar. Stir well until the sugar is completely dissolved.
- Add the vanilla extract to the mixture and stir again to incorporate it evenly.
- If you’d like to add any additional flavorings, such as chocolate chips or fruit puree, this is the time to do so. Stir them into the base mixture until well combined.
- Pour the ice cream base into an ice cream maker. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for churning, which typically involves running the machine for about 20-30 minutes until the mixture thickens and reaches a soft-serve consistency.
- If you prefer a firmer texture, transfer the churned ice cream to an airtight container and freeze it for an additional 2-4 hours, or until it reaches the desired firmness.
- Once the ice cream has hardened to your liking, it’s ready to be served!
- Scoop it into bowls or cones and enjoy.
- If you don’t have an ice cream maker, you can still make ice cream by pouring the base mixture into a shallow container and placing it in the freezer.
- Every 30 minutes, take it out and stir vigorously to break up any ice crystals until the mixture becomes thick and creamy.
- Repeat this process for about 3-4 hours or until the ice cream reaches the desired consistency.
