Crafting Homemade Ice Cream: A Delicious Recipe for Summer Delight

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Prepare the Base: In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the heavy cream, whole milk, and granulated sugar. Stir gently until the sugar dissolves completely and the mixture is warmed through, taking care not to let it boil.
  2. Enhance with Flavor: Remove the saucepan from heat and stir in the vanilla extract along with a pinch of salt. This stage offers an opportunity for creativity, allowing you to infuse your ice cream with desired flavors such as cocoa, fruit puree, or extracts like mint or almond.
  3. Chill the Mixture: Transfer the mixture to a bowl and cover it with plastic wrap, ensuring direct contact with the surface to prevent a skin from forming. Allow the mixture to chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight until thoroughly cooled.
  4. Churn to Perfection: Once chilled, pour the mixture into your ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions until it achieves a smooth and creamy consistency resembling soft-serve ice cream.
  5. Freeze Until Set: Transfer the churned ice cream into a freezer-safe container, smoothing the surface with a spatula. Seal the container tightly with a lid or additional plastic wrap and freeze for a minimum of 4 hours or until firm.
  6. Serve and Enjoy: When ready to serve, scoop the homemade ice cream into bowls or cones and garnish with preferred toppings such as fresh fruit, nuts, or a drizzle of chocolate sauce. Share this delightful creation with family and friends, relishing in the joy of homemade goodness.
  • For a richer texture, consider substituting a portion of the whole milk with additional heavy cream.
  • Experiment with various mix-ins such as crushed cookies, chocolate chips, or caramel swirls to customize your ice cream flavors.
  • In the absence of an ice cream maker, achieve a similar result by manually stirring the chilled mixture every 30 minutes until it thickens.
