Lick the Bowl Vanilla Ice Cream

This weekend was Father’s Day at my Sister-In-Law’s house (Brian and I had FD for my side of the family the weekend before).  Our job is aways to bring aphoto (1) dessert.  I’ve been using my Kitchen Aid ice cream attachment a lot lately and I thought ice cream and brownies would be fun.  My SIL’s Sister-In-Law (what does that make her to me? SIL x 2?)  often brings fruit and this killer fruit dip (I need to ask for the recipe) that everybody loves, so I figured that would be delicious with ice cream too.

I’ve been trying out new ice cream recipes and this is my latest favorite.  I found it on Pinterest by searching “Ice Cream – No Eggs.” Until I read this post, I hadn’t realized that ice cream WITH eggs is actually custard, And ice cream WITHOUT is called Philadelphia Style.  Brian and I have experimented with making the custard style…. and ended up with scrambled eggs in cream…. so sad.  On the bright side, we made Coconut Macroons with the extra egg whites.

The recipe that I followed offered a couple of suggestions for different amounts of cream, half-and-half and milk.   It also offered the option of heating the cream/milk and sugar and chilling it and then churning it….. I just went with the easiest sounding options.  This is how I made it and it turned out delicious. So delicious in fact that my SIL x2’s little one licked the bowl clean!

Lick the Bowl Vanilla Ice Cream


  • 3 c. Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 c. Whole Milk
  • 3/4 c. Sugar
  • 1 Tbs. Vanilla


Combine the Cream, Milk, Sugar and Vanilla and mix well.  Follow the manufacturer’s directions on your ice cream maker.


I was using the Kitchen Aid Ice Cream attachment and I set the timer for 20 minutes.  The sound of the machine started to change around 17 minutes and I figured that it was done at 20.  The recipe that I followed warned that using whole milk instead of more cream or half-and-half could change the thickness of the finished ice cream and might not make the ice cream maker slow down or “pop” like it would with thicker cream bases.

This recipe made about 8 cups of ice cream when finished.
