Look, we can’t pretend that ice cream is good for you. It’s a comfort food, plain and simple. It’s fattening, decadent and a total TREAT! So, it you’re eating it like you should be, sparingly, why would you buy stuff that’s filled with ingredients you can’t pronounce? Invest in an ice cream maker and start making your own, like this chocolate ice cream or this one below. Four ingredients baby. Unless of course you have any diethylglycol or piperonal on hand.
Vanilla Ice Cream
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 1/8 cup granulated sugar
3 cups heavy cream
1 1/2 tbsps pure vanilla extract
In a medium mixing bowl, use a hand mixer on low speed to combine the milk and granulated sugar until the sugar is dissolved, about 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla. Turn your machine on; pour the mixture into the bowl and let mix until thickened, about 20 to 25 minute. Ice cream will have a soft, creamy texture. Transfer to an airtight container and freeze for about 2 hours. Remove from freezer and let soften about 15 minutes before serving.
