Today I want to share with you a delicious simple Kitchenaid Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream recipe. There are two reasons I made this ice cream. First, for my birthday in May my hubby bought me a new Kitchenaid Ice Cream Maker attachment. Sadly, I’ve only gotten to play with it a few times and that’s just a shame.
Second, it’s been around 100°F every day here in Mississippi for at least a week (maybe two?) and homemade ice cream is the BEST way to remedy stifling heat. Nothing will cool you down faster than a creamy bowl of homemade ice cream!
Speaking of creamy – this ice cream is the creamiest of creamy. It’s rich with sweet vanilla flavor that I’m in love with. In addition to all this goodness, it’s also eggless or egg-free and it requires no cooking.
I know those things aren’t a dealbreaker for everybody, but if you’re dealing with an egg allergy and can’t have custard-based homemade ice creams, this is a great solution. Or if you don’t want to bother with cooking your ice cream then having to cool it before freezing – you’re in luck with this recipe!
I think one thing that really gives this ice cream a little extra vavoom is the fact that I usually use homemade vanilla extract. There’s just nothing better. But if you don’t have any homemade, I also love this Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla. Using a high quality vanilla really takes the ice cream to the next level!
My only problem now is trying to figure out many miles I need to walk so that I can justify eating the whole Kitchenaid bowl full! 😉
