My Cuisinart ice cream maker just got pulled out of storage for the summer aka Ice Cream Making Season at our house! Homemade ice cream is not hard to make – just mix up a few simple ingredients and let your ice cream maker do the rest. I use a no egg recipe for vanilla ice cream and then mix in M&Ms once it’s done.
Even though the recipe calls for whole milk and heavy cream, you can substitute 2% milk for the whole milk and half-and-half for the cram. Just know that the “lower fat” version will not be quite as rich and creamy as the full fat version. It’s still good, though!
- 1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 cups heavy cream
1 T. vanilla extract
1 cup M&Ms
1. Whisk milk, sugar and salt in a medium bowl until sugar is dissolved.
2. Add heavy cream and vanilla and whisk until blended.
3. Pour mixture into ice cream maker and let it run for 20 minutes or until ice cream forms.
4. Stir in M&Ms. Tip: Use frozen M&Ms so the M&M colors won’t run.
