This homemade vanilla ice cream is my ice cream recipe. I use it as a starting point for all my favorite ice creams. It is almost infallible. We are very excited and cannot believe that the day has come.
I thought that today's recipe for homemade vanilla ice cream is quite appropriate, because we probably are doing it now... Yes, that would melt. It should be 115 degrees today in Phoenix. I am not sure that this northwest, accustomed to 70 days of summer, can handle it!
I will keep thinking about this delicious vanilla ice cream and it will keep me fresh. Maybe I even find an ice cream from Arizona to calm me down! Last week I published a recipe for a delicious Key Lime Pie ice cream.
I said I used my basic vanilla recipe as a basis. Some of you have asked for the recipe that I thought was on the blog. After 5 years sharing recipes, it is sometimes difficult to remember which recipes I have shared and which do not. I think I have not shared that, so today I'm solving this problem.
I have to admit that when it comes to ice cream flavors, I love a good vanilla ice cream. Call me Jane Plain, call me boring, but I love vanilla ice cream. The key to good vanilla ice cream is the use of pure, high-quality vanilla. None of these imitations. Occasionally, although I am a bit adventurous.
I go to the chocolate ice cream! Here live to the limit. For this homemade version of ice cream with chocolate chips, I used the base vanilla ice cream and as soon as the ice cream was ready I poured around 1 cup of mini chocolate chips.
I prefer minis about the full size. Sometimes you get too much chocolate and you do not want to dominate the beauty of vanilla. And then, when I'm really wild, I go for a version of Cookies & Cream!
For this version you only need puree Oreo biscuits or the cookie with chocolate cream that you choose. Also for my 2 liters I use about 1 cup of crushed biscuit. I also crush one or two cookies to sprinkle on them.
The possibilities are endless here. To think that a chocolate bar in the ice cream would also be very tasty. What is your favorite ice cream? Are you a simple vanilla girl like me? Mix all ingredients and pour in 2 liters.
Put it back in the freezer. Take it again and mix for another 30 to 45 minutes. Repeat the process and check the ice until the desired consistency is achieved. You can "serve it softly" or put it in the freezer for a few hours to get a firmer texture.
Mine was really broken when I put the chocolate ice on the pictures and I finished it in the freezer. We have since made ice (including vanilla ice cream on the last photos) in the freezer. There was not much difference in the texture of the ice made with an ice machine, it was so soft and creamy. So what are you waiting for?
STEP 1: Mix milk, eggs, cream and sugar in a large pan. Cook over medium heat.
STEP 2: Stir constantly until the mixture begins to thicken in a thin cake. Remove it from the heat and add the vanilla extract.
STEP 3: If you want to make chocolate ice cream, split the mixture into two and add some cocoa powder.
STEP 4: Pour the mixture through a sieve into a container that you want to use to cool your custard mixture. Cool for several hours. I left mine all night.
STEP 5: Follow the instructions for your ice cream maker to freeze the ice in a smooth ice structure.
STEP 6: To harden the ice, place it in a covered container and place it in the freezer until it reaches the desired consistency.
