I know I am not the only one who eats ice cream all year round. Stop judging! ;)
I haven't made a lot of ice cream in the past couple years. It wasn't really conducive with Calvin's gluten/dairy free diet and my ice cream maker is one of the appliances that I have been separated from for a while. After this ice cream though, I want to do nothing but make ice cream from now on. It was super easy to make, only a few ingredients that I happen to already have in my house today and I just couldn't pass it up. The kids had theirs with brownies and Tyler and I put frozen raspberries on top of ours and oh. my. goodness. I will be making this again. That's after I eat this whole batch by myself, anyway.
I wish I had some super secret Milky Way recipes to share with everyone (sorry if I got your hopes up). But I think those might have died with my mom and my grandpa. Just know that I grew up eating and making that ice cream and I thought this ice cream was delicious. If you have an ice cream maker, you should definitely give it a try. It would probably also be soooo good with some fresh strawberries. I will try that tomorrow. We all know how much I like fresh strawberries and ice cream.
No Cook Vanilla Ice Cream
From the book: Old-Fashioned Homemade Ice Cream: With 58 Original Recipes, adapted slightly
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 T vanilla
dash of salt
In a bowl, mix all ingredients well. Add to bowl of ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturers directions. Usually after freezing you need to place in freezer for a couple hours to firm up. Makes about 1 half gallon. You can store leftovers in an airtight container in the freezer for about 2 weeks. (It will never last that long around here.)
