My New Favorite Thing!


Yes, My new ice cream maker!  I am in love!  :) How could I have gone so long without this?  I have had it since Saturday and I have already made 3 ice cream flavors!  I kind of just took the basic vanilla recipe and adjusted to add whatever sounds interesting. 

Peach Maple Walnut

1 cup whole milk
2 cups heavy cream
1/4 cup of maple syrup (this is not very sweet, could add more)
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup chopped peaches
1/4 cup toasted walnuts

Mix first four and pour into ice cream maker.  Process 20-25 minutes, add peaches and walnuts and process 5 minutes longer.  Serve!

Raspberry White Chocolate

1 cup of 1% milk
2 cups of half and half
3/4 cup natural sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 pint raspberries
1/4 cup white chocolate chips, chopped

Mix first four ingredients, pour into ice cream maker.  Process 20-25 minutes. Add raspberries and chocolate.  Process 5 more minutes are serve.

Blueberry Chocolate Chip (with protein)

1 cup 1% milk
2 cups half and half
2 scoops vanilla whey powder
1/2 cup of blueberries
1/4 cup of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Mix all ingredients except chocolate chips in a blender.  Pour into an ice cream maker.  Process 20-25 min.  Add chocolate chips and process 5 more minutes.


  1. Mmmm homemade ice cream!! I feel like it'd be too dangerous if I had one of those...

  2. Whoa, I am jealous. I have seen these machines before and always thought they looked like fun!

  3. Homemade ice cream is the best. Did you know you can also just dump in a container of vanilla yogurt and some fruit pieces and freeze it? Tasty!

  4. I'm jealous! I would love to have an ice cream maker! Your recipes look great!
