Homemade Ice-Cream

We have been enjoying some homemade ice-cream this summer.  I used my birthday money (and some I had saved) to buy myself a Cuisinart ICE-30BC Pure Indulgence 2-Quart Automatic Frozen Yogurt, Sorbet, and Ice Cream Maker!  I love it!  I wanted to share with you the recipe I am using…and it tastes SO good!  Enjoy!

These recipes make 2 quarts of ice-cream or frozen yogurt.  You can easily double the recipe if you have a larger ice-cream maker.

Choose one of the following options and mix up well in a pitcher (so you can easily pour it into your ice-cream maker):

Recipe #1:  This makes a pretty typical homemade ice-cream

2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 cup half and half
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup honey or maple syrup
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

OR

Recipe #2:  This recipe replaces the half and half and milk with kefir or yogurt.  This option definitely has a frozen yogurt taste…yum!

2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 cups kefir or yogurt
1/2 cup honey or maple syrup
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

OR

Recipe #3:  This option uses less kefir or yogurt if you don’t like the yogurt taste to be so strong

2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 cup kefir or yogurt
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup honey or maple syrup
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Stir will to mix in the honey or maple syrup, then you are ready to freeze in your Cuisinart or other ice-cream maker.

In my Cuisinart, all I do is take the canister out of the freezer, place it in the Cuisinart with the paddle in it, put the lid on top, turn it on, pour the ice-cream mixture into the canister and set my timer for 20-25 minutes.  When the time goes off we have homemade ice-cream!  It is especially good with some fresh strawberries on top!  Enjoy!

  1. We've just started making "ice cream". But to make it less fattening, I've use one cup fat free plain yogurt, one cup low fat vanilla yogurt and 1 cup of 2% milk. I then heat the milk with a 1/3 of sugar (I guess you could use honey) on the stove over low/medium heat until the sugar dissolves. This is where it gets fun. One time I put 1/4 of Ghirradelli hot cocoa mix in with it and heated till combined. Another time I put peanut butter in it. This is after I made just plain ol' vanilla using vanilla extract. Then I take that mixture and and mix it with the yogurt, blend it thoroughly and then put it in the ice cream maker. I personally love the yogurt tartness but my two youngest don't. So I make it often because more for me! LOL! Sorry for the post within a comment. LOL! I think I'm going to make some tonight. HUGS!
    1. Hi Kim, That sounds so good! Thanks for the ideas! I'm thinking maybe some peanut butter and small chocolate chips...yum!
