Homemade Ice Cream Recipe

Guest Author - Brandii Lacey

You can still enjoy homemade ice cream even if you don't own an ice cream maker. It takes a little time, but the effort is well worth it!

This is the perfect activity for a summer day, when kids are running through sprinklers outside while the ice cream is getting nice and cold in the freezer inside.

Add some sidewalk chalk and bubbles for an afternoon of inexpensive food and play!

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 cup of sugar

  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla

  • 2 teaspoons of cornstarch

  • 1 cup of milk

  • 1 pint of of whipping cream

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine the cornstarch and sugar.

  2. Beat the two eggs together for three minutes.

  3. Gradually add the milk to the eggs.

  4. In a large saucepan, combine the egg and milk mixture with the sugar and cornstarch.

  5. Cook the mixture over low heat, stirring often for five minutes or until the mixture has thickened.

  6. Remove from heat, and set aside for thirty minutes.

  7. Add the whipping cream to the mixture, and stir well. Place the mixture in the freezer for two hours.

  8. Meanwhile, chop up any extra ingredients you'd like to add to the ice cream, such as strawberries, blackberries, bananas, or chocolate chips.

  9. After two hours, take the mixture out of the freezer. Add the vanilla, and blend the mixture until it has a creamy texture (about five minutes).

  10. Stir in any extra ingredients that you desire.

  11. Place the mixture in the freezer for at least four hours, or overnight.

Recipe Tips:

  • It will be temping to add the rest of the ingredients together as soon as you remove the mixture from the heat. However, it will ruin the consistency, and the final product won't be as tasty. You can use the the time that the mixture is cooling to chop up any extra ingredients such as nuts, fruits, chocolate or butterscotch chips, or even cookie dough!

  • This ice cream will work great for a homemade ice cream pie, sundae, or ice cream cone.

  • Don't forget the final touches such as whip cream, cherries, and nuts!
