Help!!!! I'm completely addicted to homemade ice cream! My sister suggested checking myself into ice cream rehab. For the sake of my waistline, I may look into that. I found this little ice cream maker at Target a few weeks ago on clearance for $12. It's the kind that doesn't require the use of rock salt. You just keep the canister in the freezer and use it when you have a craving for ice cream (which for me is like every night).
I've been using this recipe I found online. It's incredibly easy and unbelievably delicious! I cut the serving size way down since our ice cream machine is small and it provides just enough for the two of us.
Here's the recipe:
1 cup Half & Half
2 T Whipping Cream
3 T White Sugar
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
Pinch of Salt
Since we are big Shatto Milk fans, I decided to swap out the half and half and use Shatto's flavored whole milk instead and boy did we hit the jack pot!! AMAZING! My favorite so far is the strawberry, but the banana was wonderful too. If you live around the Kansas City area you HAVE to try Shatto Milk. Everything I've tried of theirs has been superb and their dairy farm is just a short drive away.
We like our ice cream topped with toasted walnuts. Yum! This is the perfect treat to end a hot summer day.
