French Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe

French Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe
French Vanilla ice cream is even more vanilley than normal Vanilla ice cream, and is much richer and creamier. I actually like this recipe the best out of all the ice cream recipes we use! It does have to be prepared at least an hour in advance of actual ice cream machine time so plan ahead for this.


3/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup half-and-half
1/2 cup Splenda
1/4 cup ice cold water
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
dash salt

Mix all thoroughly. Cook in a saucepan over low heat. This won't thicken as much as a sugar-based custard will, but it will thicken so stir regularly. Cook 15-20 minutes until medium thick. Now put it in the fridge to cool down for at least an hour. Put the mix into your ice cream maker. Turn on and watch for about 25 minutes - it should slow to a halt when it's thick enough.

You can double the recipe if you'd like to make enough for four!

* If you use Splenda in packets, be sure to adjust accordingly! The packets are a different level of sweetness compared to normal bulk Splenda.
