Easy Ice Cream Recipe – Frangelico Vanilla

Easy Ice Cream Recipe - Frangelico VanillaA few years back someone gave me an old beat up “old school” ice cream maker. I was so excited! I had one of these as a kid. I loved making ice cream in the summer months. It was a little bit of magic to see the process happen. I was super stoked to give it a try as an adult.

I got my ice, rock salt and ice cream recipe ready. The ice cream maker I had been given had a motor that would crank and spin the ice cream mixture for you. I was impressed at the technology… Until I started adding the ice and rock salt. What was so much fun as a kid quickly became a loud awful MESSY chore! The ice cream maker began to rock around violently and then it let out a loud angry yetti squeal and died. I was left with a half frozen mess of cream and sugar. Talk about a let down!!

I put it in the freezer hoping it would finish the job. Another thing I forgot about homemade ice cream is that it turns into a rock solid mass of ICE over night! It is next to impossible to scoop it out. After a little research, I found out that you are supposed to let the ice cream dethaw for a bit before serving.

My ice cream dream had turned into an ice cream nightmare.

I hit the internet looking for a better way to make home made ice cream. Turns out they have ice cream machines that don’t require ice or rock salt!! I ordered my Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker that day.

I never new that ice cream could be so damn easy!! All you do is freeze a container overnight, add ingredients, and then flip a switch. 25-30 minutes later you have ice cream! Wha wha? Yep.

After a few batches, I figured out that if I added a little bit of booze or a liqueur it would keep the ice cream from turning into a rock hard mass. It’s a small amount – so I doubt anyone is gonna get a buzz from it. Not only does it flavor it but it makes it a joy to serve later.

Below is my Easy Ice Cream Recipe. It has a Frangelico – vanilla flavor base. I also add a half of a lemon to brighten the flavor. Vanilla can be a little boring, right? The Frangelico and lemon kick it up a notch or two. Don’t worry, you can’t taste the lemon. It’s weird! I know, but trust me, if you don’t use it you can tell a difference.

You can use this easy ice cream recipe as a base for all kinds of flavors. One of my childhood faves is cookies and cream – just add a 1 cup of crushed Oreos to the mix at the very end. Cookie dough? Yep. Strawberries and blueberries? YAAAS! Experiment and have some fun!

Instructions
  1. Grab a big mixing bowl and add all of your liquids. Give them a good stir.

  2. Cut your lemon in half and juice it with a lemon squeezer. If you are free handing it make sure you use a separate bowl to squeeze the juice into. This will keep the lemon seeds out of your ice cream.
  3. With a good size balloon whisk spend the next couple minutes mixing it all together.
  4. Get your ice cream maker out. Make sure you have frozen the inner container according to the manufacturers instructions. My Cuisinart takes over night. I just keep it in the freezer during the summer months. If you can shake it and still hear liquid - it's not ready.

  5. Get everything put together and turned on. Once you pour the ice cream mixture in it's going to start to freeze. If there are any moving parts that go in the freezer bowl you probably should get those in there first.
  6. Turn it on baby! Gently pour the ice cream into the machine. It takes about 30 minutes to get ice cream. Make sure to not overfill the ice cream maker. Most are marked with a max line. This easy ice cream recipe fits perfectly in my Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker.
  7. After 30 minutes you will have ice cream that can be served right then and there! I will say, I usually pop it in the freezer for a couple of hours to freeze a little more. I serve it directly from the freezer bowl. If there is any left over - scoop it out and store it in the freezer in a air tight container.
