  • Ice Cream Maker


  • 1 ½ cups Whole Milk
  • 1 ⅛ cups Granulated Sugar
  • 3 cups Heavy Cream
  • 1 ½ tbsp 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 and mix.
  • Pour the mixture into freezer bowl, and let mix until thickened, about 20 to 25 minutes.
  • The ice cream will have a soft, creamy texture. If a firmer consistency is desired, transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and place in the freezer for about 2 hours. Remove from the freezer about 15 minutes before serving.
