I checked my calendar and it still says summer. That means we are legally allowed to eat ice cream. There are no laws about when to eat ice cream, but most of us enjoy this creamy treat in the hot summer months. We can do better than just consume some overpriced store-bought ice cream, we can make our own.
This is the easiest homemade ice cream you will ever make. There is no ice cream machine involved, and no special equipment is required. If you have a stand mixer or a hand mixer, you can make this tempting ice cream. And it really only takes two ingredients to make the sweet, light, fluffy ice cream base. The rest is up to your taste buds and your imagination.
I love to use my family as guinea pigs when I try new recipes. This one was so much fun to play with since the flavor possibilities are endless. To be safe for our first round, we stuck with some classics. We made strawberry, mint chip, coffee, cookies and cream, cookie dough, and vanilla. All six are delicious.
The consensus from my panel of taste testers, my husband and sons, is that this ice cream is a winner. My panel of judges raved about the light creamy texture, and yummy flavors. We are already planning our next batch with some fun new varieties. This homemade ice cream gets my families stamp of approval, and I think your family will love it as well.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
