Have you ever wanted to make homemade ice cream?
Perhaps you're like me and don't have a fancy ice cream attachment for your mixer or a fancy ice cream maker.
Maybe you've never wanted to buy rock salt and spend hours throwing a bag back and forth.
(Although, if you've never made ice cream that way, grab some kids-preferably your own-and make some!)
I have a much easier way to make ice cream to share with you.
It involves two basic ingredients.
First off, I found this recipe at I am Baker. Amanda usually posts her own recipes and creative inventions, but this ice cream recipe she found at Kevin and Amanda's.
Krispy Kreme Ice Cream? You know that one will get made in this house!
I came across this recipe yesterday and knew I was going to try to make it today.
So, I asked Paul "If he could have any flavor ice cream what would it be?"
Vanilla Chip (a flavor at our local Gelati Celesti & very similiar to plain Chocolate Chip)
But, being the good wife that I am, I decided to make what he wanted.
(Besides, since it's the first batch, I didn't want to waste my good toppings if it totally sucked ;) )
So I picked up my two ingredients.
(You'll only need 2 cups of the Heavy Whipping Cream & 1 14 oz. can of the milk)
Gelati Celesti uses more of a chocolate chunk in their ice cream. It's definitely not chocolate chips.
I opted for Nestle's chocolate chunks.
Then I got to making the ice cream.
I also added a tiny bit of pure vanilla extract into the condensed milk.
I'm pretty sure it was less than a teaspoon.
Use your wisk attachment and on a medium-high speed, beat the whipping cream until stiff peaks are formed. This was the longest part of the whole process. In fact, I would recommend having your mixer going with the cream and then go add your toppings to the milk.
It's important that you fold the cream thoroughly into the milk. Be careful not to stir too much.
Once the mixture is frozen, serve it up! I found it starts to melt fairly quickly.
I was surprised by how much it tastes exactly like real ice cream.
In fact, it's very similiar to the slow churned or thick and creamy style of ice cream.
Don't forget to serve it with a glass of milk!
Side note: You can clearly see where my priorities are.
