I have tried MANY Homemade Ice Cream recipes over the years… and each and every time I am left disappointed. Either to much vanilla… not enough chocolate… or just a weird unpleasant consistency. Well, this weekend, I found a winner, well worth sharing.
I wanted some ice cream for Reed’s 2nd birthday… so I decided to try THIS ONE out. It was a HUGE HIT and I loved it. I btw am not a huge ice cream fan, so for me to like it, means its really good :)
- 1 C honey granules (or sugar)
- 2 large eggs
- 2 large egg whites
- 1 cup cocoa
- 1 1/2 C whole milk
- 1 1/2 C cream
- 1/2 Tbsp vanilla
- The instructions for this are about as easy as it gets. Take ALL the above ingredients... put them into your NINJA or blender. Mix it all up til it creates a smooth consistency...
- Once blended all together, pour in the ingredients into your ice cream maker. Now a heads up... our ice cream maker was not large enough to fit all of the above mixture. So what I did was just poured in what I could into the machine, then I put the remaining mixture into a mason jar in my refrigerator. This weekend we celebrated Reed's 2nd birthday... so we enjoyed the ice cream on saturday... then on sunday, we made up the 2nd batch. Easy peasy! I just poured what was in the fridge, into the ice cream maker the next day and made a 2nd batch.
- Thats it! :)
To view the original recipe, CLICK HERE. She gives directions on how to make this without an ice cream machine. However, I found my way works great for those with a machine… requires a lot less steps than her directions.
Enjoy! :) & for viewing pleasure, baby Reed enjoying his ice cream yesterday.
Yes he prob could have used a bib…
