Dustin, Jordan and I all visited Bella Vista, Arkansas over the Memorial Day weekend so that Jordan could meet her Grandpa Rollie and her Great Grandma Aggie for the first time.
We all had a wonderful time visiting with family, taking long strolls out in the country and, of course, eating good ‘ole country fried food. In addition to the delicious fried chicken, okra and Grandpa Rollie’s slow-cooked pork ribs, the vanilla ice cream we had out in Arkansas was amazing. So, I thought I’d post my own homemade vanilla ice cream recipe.
After making homemade ice cream, I am always astounded at just how quick and easy it really is to make. This sweet treat calls for just a few ingredients and is quite rich and creamy. The great thing about this recipe is that you probably already have most, if not all, the ingredients you need.
I hope you all had a fabulous holiday weekend!
- 2 13.5-oz cans full fat coconut milk (approx 3 1/3 cups)
- 1/2 cup regular unsweetened coconut milk or unsweetened milk of choice
- 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl, and stir until mixed well.
Transfer mixture to an ice cream maker. Follow according to your ice cream maker's instructions.
Freeze for at least 3-4 hours prior to serving.
