Easy 3 Ingredient Recipe for Vanilla Ice Cream

Summer’s here, and that means it’s time for ice cream! My hubby and I love taking trips to Gifford’s for their awesome ice cream (seriously awesome!), but it’s hard to get out of the house with Kayleigh now, and eating ice cream out at a restaurant can be very expensive too.

We have a Deni Ice Cream Maker at home, so I’ve been making homemade ice cream lately.  It’s a lot cheaper, really easy to make, and I can add any ingredients I want to it!

I absolutely love this ice cream maker.  It’s very high quality and a great price too!  It comes with a candy crusher, making it super easy to add candy and nuts to your ice cream mixture.  I have it in the pretty blueberry color below, but it is available in several other colors as well.

Today I made an awesome vanilla ice cream.  I love this 3 Ingredient Recipe for Vanilla Ice Cream.  This is really so simple, and very tasty too!  I like vanilla ice cream because you can dress it up with any toppings you like.  Everyone in the family can get exactly what they want!

Here’s the 3 Ingredient Recipe for Vanilla Ice Cream!  You’ll love how creamy and delicious this ice cream turns out.  It’s pretty darn amazing!
