After making a variety of flavored yogurts and ice cream, I just made some vanilla ice cream.

  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 TBSP of sugar (I don’t like super sweet, but you can always add more)

Throw these into your ice cream maker for about 20 minutes.  You’ll see it thickens, transfer into a freezable container, and leave in your freezer.

The first photo is what it looks like when it comes out of the ice cream maker.  The second was after I put it in the freezer for 10 hours. 

It’s seriously delicious and creamy.  This makes only 1 cup (or so) of ice cream.
