Easy Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream
There’s a first time for everything and for me today that’s making Easy Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream.
I’m so happy to be a part of this Ice Cream Party Giveaway for a Hamilton Beach Ice Cream Maker because I was able to make and taste homemade ice cream for the very first time. Yes, I’ll give you a minute to recover from that statement.
And here’s another shocker…my husband never tasted homemade ice cream until today either. Where in the world have we been living to make it this far in life without tasting something so incredibly delicious?
How to Make Easy Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream
This recipe couldn’t be more easier. Combine all the ingredients together in a separate mixing bowl and then add to the ice cream maker insert.
Following the instructions in the manual, add the ice and rock salt to the machine and let the churning begin!
After about 40 minutes, the machine started to slow down the ice cream looked like this:
Look how delicious! Now comes the hard part..waiting. Put the ice cream into a freezer safe container and freeze for about one to two hours before serving.
Favorite Ice Cream Toppings
Of course the ice cream is delicious just as it is, but it’s always fun to add your favorite toppings:
- Chocolate sauce or fudge
- Chopped walnuts or pecans
- Different colored sprinkles
- Homemade whipped cream

Easy Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream is a delicious way to celebrate summer
- 3 cups granulated sugar
- 3 cups whole milk
- 6 cups whipping cream
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 8 lbs ice
- 3 cups rock salt
In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, milk, cream, vanilla extract and lemon juice. Whisk until mixed through.
Pour the mixture into the canister, insert the dasher, and secure the lid tightly.
Place the canister into the center of the bucket. Assemble the motor over the canister with the dasher shaft inserted into the hole in the bottom of the motor.
Turn the motor counter clockwise to lock the motor onto the bucket.
Place the bucket into the sink.
Plug in the power cord. Allow the mixture to churn for a couple minutes before adding ice to the bucket.
Unplug the motor. Add about 2 inches of ice to the bottom of the bucket and sprinkle on about a 1/2 cup of the rock salt. Repeat the layers until the bucket is completely full.
Plug the motor back in and allow the ice cream to churn for 20-40 minutes, or until the machine slows or stops on it's own. Keep an eye on it and add more ice as needed.
Remove the canister. If you wish to mix in items such as fresh berries, chocolate, nuts, etc, do so now with a long-handled rubber spatula.
Replace the lid, insert the storage plug, and put the canister into the freezer for 1-2 hours before serving.
