Homemade Ice Cream

DIY, Food, HomeMeganComment

I managed to lock myself out of my car last week but luckily I was in a shopping center with Chipotle AND Tuesday Morning (score!). So while I waited for the Boyfriend to give me a lift, I couldn't help but do a little shopping. Whilst perusing, I came upon an ice cream maker, just in  time to carry on a 4th of July family tradition!

homemade vanilla ice cream mixed with confetti cake..omg. The combo was ridiculously indulgent. **warning** do not make homemade ice cream if you're fighting cravings for something sweet, it will vanish in no time!

I thought the safest bet was to stick with the simple vanilla recipe included with the ice cream maker. it was mouthwatering and only called for 4 ingredients!

The  Big Boss  ice cream maker worked like a BOSS! After freezing the inner bowl, which you can do ahead of time (takes around 12 hours) it only takes about 25 minutes to whip up some fresh ice cream!

Have you tried your hand at homemade ice cream? What are your favorite flavors/recipes to make? I have a feeling this machine will get a lot of use in the future, just thinking about it makes me feel 5 pounds heavier. Time to look for low fat recipes!
