Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

I scream, you scream, we all scream for OH MY GOD LOOK BEHIND YOU!

Just kidding.

Ice cream?


Ice cream.  Iced cream.  Cream that has been iced.

I am a firm believer that ice cream is fine to consume heavily all year round, but now that spring has finally shown itself (halle-flippin-lujah), I want it mooorree!  I had heard rumors around the internet that one can make ice cream without one of those fancy ice cream churner things, and after much research I found that oh heck yes 'tis true!  Seriously people, 2 main ingredients, plus whatever flavor combos your little heart desires.  Looove!

Since this was my first rodeo, I stuck to the regular vanilla.  It came out tasting exactly how vanilla ice cream should taste, so Imma get a little more cray next time around.

What you will need for a batch that will serve 3-5 depending on each individual's serving size:
  • 2 cups of heavy cream
  • 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (or more) of M&Ms
  • Sprinkles for extra color

Using a hand mixer, whip the heavy cream until soft peaks form, about 10 minutes.  Pour in the  sweetened condensed milk and vanilla, and fold to combine.  Add in the M&Ms, stirring to combine, then add the sprinkles.

Pour into a loaf pan or other container and freeze for about 7 hours.

Psychedelic ;)
