Homemade Ice Cream

Homemade Ice Cream

I’ve been on a homemade ice cream kick all summer (all quarantine, maybe?). There are a million ways to make it but I like my friend McCall’s method best. This one pictured is a blackberry mint chocolate chip 😍⁣

It’s a simple homemade ice cream base and then you can add in whatever you want! I use whole fat milks local from the farmers market and it doesn’t upset my slightly dairy sensitive self.⁣

So far I’ve tried: vanilla, chocolate, mint chocolate chip, coffee, buttermilk peach, cherry garcia, and rosemary lemon.⁣

I asked for suggestions and got a lot of really great ones. Next up: cake/buttercream, brown butter pecan, honey lavender, salted caramel, and basil!⁣

We paired a cherry version of this with my birthday cake and it was perfect.

Easy homemade ice cream base:⁣
-1 cup sugar⁣
-1 cup whole milk⁣
-2 cups heavy cream*⁣
-pinch of salt⁣
-splash of vanilla⁣

*I often use 1 cup coconut milk from the can and 1 cup heavy cream and it’s amazing⁣

Blend until sugar is dissolved. Pour into an ice cream maker (I have the KitchenAid attachment) and let it go 30-40 min. Pour into a container and freeze!
