Normally when you make homemade ice cream you use quite a bit of cream, and with the rising cost of dairy and cream already being expensive, sometimes it's cheaper just to do without. I love a cool ice cream treat now and then so I knew there had to be a solution! This recipe requires an ice cream maker of some sort. If you don't have one...watch at rummage sales or end of the season sales to pick one up. They are worth it!
What you need:
- 4 c. Half and Half
- 1/2 c. Sugar
- 1 t. Vanilla Extract
Pour all the ingredients together in the ice cream maker. You can use turbinado sugar in this recipe instead of white sugar as long as you send it through your blender first to make more of a fine powder. Turn on the ice cream maker and let the magic happen. For us, this recipe only takes about 10 minutes. It won't be hard like store bought ice cream unless you freeze it for a while after you make it, otherwise it will be more of a milk shake consistency. Still very yummy either way!
