Home Made Ice Cream!


I've used this simple vanilla ice cream as a base with other fun add-ins. I use egg substitute to reduce the risk of using uncooked eggs; when using real eggs, 1/4 cup egg substitute = 1 egg.

Makes: Ten 1/2 -cup senings
2/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup egg substitute
2 cups heavy cream
1-3/4 cups whole milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Place sugar and egg substitute in a large mixing bowl and beat on medium speed with an electric
hand miser until light and fluffy, about 2 - 3 minutes. Add cream, milk and vanilla. Mix on
medium speed until combined, about 1 - 2 minutes.

Pour into freezer bowl of ice cream maker and turn the machine ON. Let mix until mixture thickens, about 20 - 25 minutes. If desired, transfer ice cream to an airtight container and place in freezer until firm, about 2 hours.

Add hard pieces 5 minutes before ice cream is done mixing in ice cream maker. I added green, yellow, and brown mini-m&ms as a lead-up to the Super Bowl. Why brown? For the footballs, of course.
In general, add a total of 1/2 cup of solid add-ins. If you're using two, such as chocolate and nuts, use 1/4 cup of each.
The vanilla extract can be replaced by a more appropriate flavor if desired, such as peppermint or almond extract. Be creative! This recipe is a basic vanilla; I start with the basics and then make changes.
Other add-ins:
crushed candy canes (use peppermint extract in place of vanilla)
chocolate chips
nuts (consider almond extract)

As my family says, "Good stuff, Mom." Enjoy!

Is that the equivalent of six eggs?
