Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

Homemade vanilla ice cream

 I always encourage people to make their own ice creams because homemade ones always taste better and you actually know what's in there and how old are ingredients. God knows what does big companies put in theirs. I'm not saying ice creams from stores are bad. I'm just saying it's better to know what do you and your family eat.

Vanilla ice creams from stores tastes like milk and sugar to me. They lack flavor and aroma and they are white as a snow. Maybe it's because of that I lost interest for vanilla ice creams. I always go with chocolate or strawberry flavored ones. I didn't realize how wrong I was until i tried to make a homemade vanilla ice cream. It was so simple, yet so delicious and vanilla aroma aroused my senses. It was a good reminder that I actually love this kind of ice cream. There are lots of complicated recipes but I'm really happy with this simple one. It's delicious and you only need a couple of mins to make it, wait for few more and it's ready.

1 cup heavy whipping cream
3 cups half-and-half or light cream
1 cup Powdered sugar 
2 tsp. vanilla extract


 In a bowl, mix all ingredients and sir for a minute. Powdered sugar will help you not to sir too long :). Fill the cups with the mixture and put them in the freezer. Wait for 5 mins and stick the wooden sticks in each cup. Wait for another 40 mins and your homemade vanilla ice cream is ready to serve! Enjoy!
