Homemade No Churn Ice Cream

Homemade No Churn Ice Cream | 3 ingredients! | On Sutton PlaceWhen I was a kid, every summer, my dad would make homemade ice cream. We would buy bags of ice and a big bag of salt. My mom would make the mix in the kitchen and carry it out to the garage where my dad would carefully pour it into the ice cream maker. It made a big mess and took a few hours but it was so good. This recipe for homemade ice cream isn’t quite the same…but it’s pretty close. Plus there is no ice, no salt and no churning.

Homemade No Churn Ice Cream | Only 3 ingredients! | On Sutton PlaceJust three simple ingredients and about 10 minutes is all it takes to have fresh, homemade ice cream in your freezer.  I found this recipe on marthastewart.com but adjusted the ingredients after making it the first time. It has a very rich, creamy taste and great texture.

You could easily add just about any thing you wanted…mini chocolate chips, fresh fruit, nuts, etc. I made plain vanilla because truth be told, it’s my favorite. The first time I made it, I froze it in an 8 x 8 Pyrex dish. The second time I got a little fancy and used these cute blue ramekins.
