Homemade Ice Cream Recipe

Indulge in the creamy delight of homemade ice cream with this simple recipe. Whether you’re craving classic vanilla or adventurous flavors, this recipe is your gateway to frozen bliss.


  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

Optional Flavor Add-Ins:

  • Chocolate chips
  • Fresh fruit (strawberries, blueberries, etc.)
  • Crushed cookies or candy bars
  • Nuts (almonds, pecans, etc.)
  • Cocoa powder
  • Espresso powder


  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the heavy cream, whole milk, sugar, vanilla extract, and salt until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  2. If you’re adding any flavorings like cocoa powder or espresso powder, whisk them into the mixture now until fully incorporated.
  3. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions. This typically takes about 20-30 minutes, or until the ice cream reaches a soft-serve consistency.
  4. If you’re adding any mix-ins like chocolate chips or fruit, gently fold them into the churned ice cream during the last few minutes of churning.
  5. Once churned, transfer the ice cream to a freezer-safe container, cover with a lid or plastic wrap, and freeze for at least 4 hours or until firm.
  6. Serve scoops of your homemade ice cream in bowls or cones, and enjoy the creamy goodness!

Tip: For best results, make sure your ice cream maker bowl has been properly frozen according to the manufacturer’s instructions before churning.
