Homemade Ice Cream

Hot weather means it’s acceptable to eat ice cream at any time of the day right?! One of our favorite summer treats to beat the heat is any type of homemade ice cream dessert. This simple recipe is delicious, fun to make at home, and allows you to get creative with your toppings. 

Since it’s June and National Dairy Month, we’re featuring a homemade, family recipe that makes about a gallon and a half of ice cream, perfect to bring to any summer gathering to keep everyone happy! With only 6 ingredients, this recipe is simple and delicious. Did you know that adding eggs into your ice cream recipe can help to leverage the fat already present in the ice cream base (the butterfat in cream and milk) and make it a creamier texture?

Customize this sweet vanilla ice cream with any toppings of your choice to satisfy your sweet or savory taste buds. Once you mix all the ingredients together, put them into the ice cream mixer for 1-2 hours, depending on how soft you like your ice cream, and enjoy! Elevate your sundae with soy toppings like sprinkles, chocolate chips hot fudge, and enjoy in a cone or dish!

Here are our favorite topping that incorporate soy, to make your sundae extra sweet & delicious.

Now that you’ve learned more about this tasty treat, it’s time to create the recipe. Watch the video below for step-by-step instructions.
