Simple Vanilla Ice Cream

This recipe came with our Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker. I will post a picture next time we make it 🙂


1 cup whole milk (I have also used 1% and it turns out fine)
¾ cup granulated sugar
pinch salt
2 cups heavy cream
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract


1. In a medium bowl, use a hand mixer on low speed or whisk to combine the milk, sugar and salt until the sugar is dissolved.

2. Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla.

3.Cover and refrigerate 1 to 2 hours, or overnight. (I have skipped this step before and still had good results)

4. Turn on the Cuisinart® ice cream maker; pour the mixture into the frozen freezer bowl and let mix until thickened, about 15 to 20 minutes.


*The ice cream will have a soft, creamy texture. If a firmer consistency is desired, transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and place in freezer for about 2 hours. Remove from freezer about 15 minutes before serving.

Makes about 5 cups (ten ½-cup servings)
