Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

I know it may not be the most classy way to picture vanilla ice cream.
But I'm a sucker for pretty colours on melting ice cream.

Would you look at that colour trails? Doesn't it just make you want to go ice cream colour crazy?

And then i had to mush it up into an ice cream soup because i am fifteen, and we're allowed to do those kind of things. admittedly, would still be doing that when i am a fifty three year old with high blood sugar levels, but still. You get my point.

I must say, my mother made a gigantic mistake buying our cuisinart. Now will eat ice cream, sorbet and frozen yogurt as fast as my gullet will allow.

Homemade vanilla ice cream

2 large eggs
3/4 sup sugar
2 cups whipping cream
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla essence

Whisk eggs for 2 minutes. While whisking, add in sugar a little at a time. Pour in cream and milk and blend well. Add essence and stir. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Once chilled, pour into the bucket of the ice cream maker and set the timer for 60 minutes for a soft serve ice cream.

If adding chocolate chips or cookie dough, add these during the last 5 minutes of the freezing cycle.

Various flavours: 150g melted chocolate, 3 tbsp espresso, 2 tsp strawberry essence.

Or, you know, hundreds and thousands.
